RAIDER REVIEW: The Raiders (22-22-9-2) return to the Art Hauser Centre to close out their three-in-three weekend with an afternoon matchup against the Swift Current Broncos (39-13-3-1). Last night, the Raiders took a 3-2 lead into the third period, but fell 6-3 to the Saskatoon Blades at SaskTel Centre. Parker Kelly got the Raiders on the board right after the Blades opened the scoring. Trailing 2-1 in the second, Jordy Stallard responded with two goals to put the Raiders in the lead. However, the Raiders surrendered four goals in the final frame to drop the game to the Blades and fall two points back of their rivals in the chase for the second wild card spot.
VS. SWIFT CURRENT: This is the seventh game of the year between the Raiders and the Broncos. The Raiders are looking to avenge a 5-1 loss on Friday night in Swift Current.
