11/28 Recap: McNabb leads way; Marcus earns marks

Brayden McNabb scored the game-tying and game winning goals on Saturday to lead Kootenay past Kelowna, 4-2. The power play goals were the fifth and sixth of the season for the rugged WHL defender. The game's #1 star, McNabb's evening was rounded out by 23 PIM, the bulk of which coming from a third period scrap and misconduct after Kelowna's Curt Gogul came in high on blueline partner James Martin.

In the OHL, Marcus Foligno scored a goal for the second straight game as Sudbury lost in a Saturday night shootout to Barrie, 4-3. Foligno lit the lamp on the power play at 9:05 of the third period to force the extra session. Nick Crawford was +1 for the winners.

Somehow not included in Friday's recap was Foligno's slumpbusting effort on that saw him net his second goal of the year (and first in 22 games) in the Wolves 4-2 loss to Owen Sound. The 18-year old wasted little time getting reacquainted with the twine, scoring at the 1:56 mark of the opening period.

In the QMJHL, Maxime Legault scored on the power play in the game's final minute to give Shawinigan a 4-3 win over Moncton. The 20-year old also earned an assist to up his season totals six goals and six assists through his first 12 games.

Jordon Southorn was even through a period and a half before earning a fighting major and game misconduct as PEI defeated Lewiston, 6-4. The win was the fifth straight for the Rocket.

In the NCAA, North Dakota's Brad Eidsness made 21 saves while Connor Knapp stopped 19 shots for Miami as the #3 Sioux and #1 RedHawks played to an exciting 5-5 tie at the Subway Holiday Classic. Knapp and the Redhawks survived a four-goal onslaught in the second period to score a pair in the third and earn the tie. Corey Fienhage was -1 for the Sioux.

All ten goals against involving the Sabres goaltending prospects:

In the CCHA, Nick Eno made 33 saves as Bowling Green battled to a 4-4 tie with Notre Dame. Three of the Irish goals came on the power play.

Corey Tropp was held without a point as Michigan State lost to Minnesota, 2-1.

Justin Jokinen was again a scratch as Minnesota State defeated Michigan Tech, 3-2.

In the USHL, Mark Adams did not play in Chicago's 3-2 loss to Green Bay.
