11/20 Recap: Nelson gets helper; Makarov yanked

Written By Kris Baker on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 | 11/21/2012

Andrey Makarov allowed four goals on 26 shots through two periods of play Tuesday as Saskatoon was defeated by Victoria 5-2. Likely fatigued after receiving a heavy November workload, Makarov was relieved by creasemate Alex Moodie for the final 20 minutes. Makarov had entered with a two-game winning streak. Logan Nelson assisted on the second Royals goal, giving him 22 points (6+16) after 23 games, the second-highest total on Victoria's roster.

Elsewhere, Colin Jacobs went without a point as Prince George edged Regina 4-3 in a shootout. Historically an ace breakaway performer, Jacobs watched as four of his Cougars teammates completed the shootout victory. Jacobs had missed his previous two attempts.

Kris can you give an update on Armia?

sorry about the funky formatting again...

Right now Armia is listed as day-to-day with post-concussion symptoms. The Aces play again on Thursday and then are off for a few days. I'm not sure he goes tomorrow but I'll be monitoring closely and will pass along any news.

Lieuwen had a rocky start but his save percentage is starting to level off a bit. It's probably going to be a longer road for him at the pro level but for now we need to see him work on his positioning and set himself up better for second and third saves.
