The Pistons were sitting comfortably in the driver's seat on Saturday as they cruised to a 6-1 victory over the Winnipeg Blues at the T.G. Smith Centre.

The team now leads its closest rival, the Winkler Flyers, by 13 points for first place in the MJHL standings.

Jordan Bochinski got things started for the Pistons early in the first on the powerplay to go ahead 1-0. The Pistons would convert on two more powerplay chances before the night was done.

The home team pulled away in the second with goals from Ryan Carlson, Mackenzie Graham and William Koop. Tyson McConnell found the back of the net for the third game in a row just seconds into the third period. Vaughn Dupre capped off Pistons scoring in the final minute of the third.

Goaltender Roman Bengert picked up the game's first star award for the second game in a row, backstopping the Pistons to victory with a 35 save performance.

Having now extended their winning streak to six games, the Pistons will hit the road against the Swan Valley Stampeders on Wednesday night before returning for a four-game home stand at the T.G. Smith Centre that with carry them through to mid-February.
