AUSTIN, MN – The Bruins looked to complete the weekend sweep of Aberdeen on home ice Saturday Night and did just that in a multi-person effort.
After falling last night 4-2, Aberdeen looked to set the tone early and did just that as four minutes into the game, the Wings would strike first while on the Power Play to give them the early 1-0 lead. Landon Parker would get his 9th goal of the season with Logan Gravink picking up the lone assist. Not looking to be outdone, Austin Salanli would tie the game up at the 7:24 mark of the period with his 13th of the season with Ashton Bynum picking up the assist.
After going to the locker room tied at 1-1, the Bruins jumped out in front early in the second period. Sam Christiano would snap a shot past Cole Moore for his 4th of the season to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead. Forty-four seconds later, Bryan Gilman would throw a shot on net through traffic and would get a redirect from Matys Brassard to make it a then 3-1 lead for the Bruins. Logan Gravink would pull Aberdeen back within a goal on a clean pass from Owen Dubois which in turn beat Ethan Robertson on the backdoor.
Walter Zacher’s hot streak would continue as he would pick up his 18th of the season off a shot that snuck behind Moore to give the Bruins some breathing room and from there the deal was one. Robertson would shut the door on the other end to help propel the Bruins to a 4-2 win over Aberdeen and extend the lead to 12 points in the Central Division. Robertson would stop 17 of the 19 shots he would face en route to his 11th win of the season.
Up next, the Bruins welcome the St. Cloud Norsemen to Riverside Arena for the first of four straight meetings between the two clubs Friday and then will head up to St. Cloud on Saturday Night.
