First playoff win gets Oil Capitals back in series

Cole Hamblin scored once and set up three other goals for the Virden Oil Capitals as they won their first-ever Manitoba Junior Hockey League playoff game 6-2 over the Swan Valley Stampeders on Thursday in Virden.

Artsiom Kalashnikov added a goal and two helpers for Virden, which trails its best-of-seven Sher-Wood Division semifinal 2-1, while Souris’s Ben Williams and Elkhorn’s Curtis Oliver also found the back of the net. B.J. Avery and Brayden MacDonald replied for the Stampeders, who will host Game 4 on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in Dauphin, Brayden Cuthbert of Brandon and Jesse Bernard of Killarney both scored for the host Kings as they beat the OCN Blizzard 3-0 to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their best-of-seven Sher-Wood Division semifinal.

Tanner Lomsnes netted Dauphin’s other marker, while Michael Stiliadis made 21 saves for the shutout. Killarney’s Brian Archibald stopped 39 shots in net for OCN, which will try to stay alive on Saturday when it hosts Game 4 in The Pas.
