Saints Steal Two from Thunder

Spruce Grove began their Divisional semifinal series on the road against Drayton Valley and shocked the Thunder, winning both games. On Saturday night Ben Scrivens picked up the game's 2nd-Star with his 27-save performance in the Saints' 3-2 victory. Spruce Grove followed that one goal win with another on Sunday, beating the Thunder 4-3. In Sunday's victory, Ben aided the winning effort by stopping 33 of the 36 shots he faced.

Now, the series moves to Spruce Grove where the Saints have a chance of closing out thi round. This series has an interesting backstory as the two goalies know each other extremely well, having been teammates in both the Viking Cup and the All-Star competition earlier this year. Drayton Valley's Scott Gudmandson will be attending the University of Wisconsin in 2007.
