|Ty Lewis scored his first career WHL goal Wednesday|
Reid Duke and Ivan Provorov had a goal and two assists each for the Wheat Kings, who erupted for their biggest offensive output in more than a month.
Ty Lewis scored his first career WHL goal, Duncan Campbell got his first since October 10th and Tanner Kaspick broke a 12-game goalless drought.
"Ty Lewis scored, but he's playing well. He's been playing well now for 3-4 games, we've talked about him after the games here a couple of times and he's fit in nicely with Duke and Hawryluk," said Brandon GM/Coach Kelly McCrimmon on CKLQ's post-game show, "It's always important for those guys to get that off their back so for Ty, that will only give him more confidence. We had a power-play goal tonight so that was positive, there were some guys that scored tonight that haven't scored in a while so even that part of it is positive here as we move along."
Nolan Patrick added the other Brandon goal while Macoy Erkamps added a pair of assists.
Erkamps was also assessed a five-minute major for boarding with just under seven ninutes left in the third period, a penalty that will be automatically reviewed by the WHL office for a possible suspension.
However, based on replays of the hit, a suspension is highly unlikely.
Wednesday's victory moved Brandon back to within three points of first-place Prince Albert in the Eastern Conference standings.
The Wheat Kings conclude their five-game home stand by hosting Regina on Friday night (7:30 p.m., Westman Communications Group Place).
