Speedy recovery for the Rebels

There’s an old saying in hockey; “Good teams don’t lose two in a row.”

Well, the Red Deer Rebels proved that adage right Saturday night, downing Prince Albert 6-2 at the Enmax Centrium.

The game started off slowly for the Rebels, with the travel weary Raiders jumping out to a 1-0 lead when Trochu, Alberta native Mike Winther beat Darcy Kuemper with his second goal of the season.

But just 1:11 later, Adam Kambeitz tied things up 1-1 with his fifth goal of the year, with Lane Scheidl drawing the lone assist.

Red Deer would get things going offensively in the second period, with Andrej Kudrna tallying his eighth goal of the year on the powerplay.

At 5:44, Byron Froese scored again on the powerplay, his fourth of the year, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Alex Petrovic each drawing their second assists of the night.

Kambeitz, with his second of the night, wrapped up the second period scoring at 10:48, making it 4-1 Red Deer heading to the third period.

Prince Albert, who arrived in Red Deer early Saturday morning after playing in Prince George on Friday night, found some jump to start the third period, with Igor Revenko tallying his fifth goal of the year at 3:05.

Byron Froese, with his second of the night, put Red Deer ahead 5-2 at 16:42 before Adam Kambeitz finished off the hat trick at 17:52.

Nugent-Hopkins and Petrovic both finished the night with three helpers each.
