1/25 Recap: Sundher scores in loss; Amerks fall to Griffs

On Wednesday, Kevin Sundher scored for the second straight game as Brandon was blown out by Calgary, 7-2. The six-foot center, who has two goals and four assists in nine games as a Wheat King, now has 70 points (24+46) with 22 games remaining in the WHL regular season. He's been averaging 1.43 points-per-game in 2011-12, and he'll need to maintain that pace (actually 1.36 will do it) to eclipse the 100-point barrier.

Mark Pysyk finished -1 in a 5-4 overtime loss to Tri-City. Trading punches the entire way, the two clubs kept the goaltenders busy with a combined 90 shots on goal. The Oil Kings will welcome Sundher and the Wheat Kings to Rexall on Friday.

Nathan Lieuwen was given the night off as Kootenay lost to Lethbridge, 5-4. Lieuwen should be back between the pipes on Friday when the ICE host Prince Albert.


In AHL play, the Rochester Americans couldn't overcome a three-goal deficit after the opening frame en route to a 4-1 loss to Grand Rapids. The Amerks had defeated the Griffins in the previous three meetings between the clubs this season.
