Esposito solid in net as Bruins snuff out Hitmen 2-1
CHILLIWACK, B.C. - The Chilliwack Bruins received fantastic goaltending in the third period by Matt Esposito to snuff out the Calgary Hitmen 2-1 in WHL action Saturday night.
Overage forward Brandon Campos scored both goals for the Bruins (7-2-0-0), one a power-play rebound late in the first period and then scoring on a great second effort down low in front of the Hitmen (9-3-0-1) net early in the second period.
Ian Duval countered with the only goal for the Hitmen, opening the scoring in the game on the power play in the first period.
But it was Esposito that saved the heroics for the third period. Calgary outshot the Bruins 16-2 in period three, but "Espo" stood tall to preserve the win.
Esposito picks up his league-leading seventh win of the season. Taking the loss for the Hitmen is Martin Jones, who falls to 4-2 on the season.
