Pulock Leads B'Day Party

Ryan Pulock
  Ryan Pulock celebrated his 18th birthday by scoring a pair of goals as the Brandon Wheat Kings edged the Red Deer Rebels 2-1 on Saturday night.

  Pulock's power-play goal 1:19 into the third period snapped a 1-1 tie as the Wheat Kings ended a two-game losing skid.

  "I won't complain about that at all," said Pulock on CKLQ post-game show, "When you bounce back like we did today, it's always good and, hopefully, we can keep on the winning side."

  The winning goal came after Red Deer's Charles Inglis took a run at Brandon's Jens Meilleur at the end of teh second period, drawing a charging minor that put the Wheat Kings on the power-play to start the third period.

  Colton Mayor had opened the scoring for Red Deer 8:54 into the middle frame with Pulock tying the goal with his third of the season less than a minute later.

  Corbin Boes stopped 22 shots and Nick Buonassisi drew a pair of assists as Brandon improved to 5-2-0-0 on the season, good for second-place in the East Division and the Eastern Conference.

  Patrik Bartosak stopped 27 shots for Red Deer, who fell to 2-5-0-1 on the season.

  "One of the biggest things I like about tonight's game was that top-to-bottom, all four lines, six D and Corbin, everyone was involved," said Brandon coach Dwayne Gylywoychuk  "Everyone has a sweat on tonight and everybody has a piece of this puzzle."

  Brandon is idle until Friday, when they'll continue their home stand by hosting the Everett Silvertips (7:35 p.m., Westman Communications Group Place).

Chaff...Minnedosa product Chad Robinson of the Rebels was held pointless with an even plus-minus on Saturday...Wawanesa product Jordan Thomson scored his first goal of the season in Kamloops 4-1 win over Medicine Hat Saturday.
