Eric Florchuk also had a big game for the Blades, scoring his sixth and seventh goals of the year.

“Everyone is starting to figure things out and how we need to play for a full 60, and that will make us more successful going down the road,” Florchuk said.

It was a memorable night for second-year defenceman Randen Schmidt, whose first career WHL goal became the eventual game winner for the Blades.

“I hopped off the bench and was skating hard to the net; the puck bounced out there and I kind of slapped it in on the backhand,” Schmidt said.

“I didn’t see it go in, but it felt good.”

Blades assistant captain Josh Paterson also scored in the win for his sixth goal of the season.
