The Red River Mudbugs edged the Steinbach Huskies 4-3 Thursday night at St. Jean, ending the Huskies' seven-game Hanover Tache Junior Hockey League win streak.

HTJHL scoring leader Skylar Klassen scored what proved to be the winning goal with 2:53 remaining in the third, which gave the Mudbugs a 4-2 lead at the time, before Zach Cumming, with his second goal of the period narrowed the Red River lead to 4-3 with only 30 seconds remaining.

Tied 1-1 after the first and 2-2 after the second, Cumming gave the Huskies their first lead of the game six minutes into the third before Steve Baker tied it for Mudbugs two minuetes later.

Klassen had a hat trick in the game for the Mudbugs, scoring a goal in each period as the first place Mudbugs improve their record to an impressive 17-1-0-1.

One other game Thursday night saw the Springfield Xtreme move past the Huskies into third place in the standings with an 8-3 victory at Mitchell over the Mohawks.

There are five HTJHL games on tap this weekend including a pair of games tonight as the Huskies host Lorette and St. Adolphe is at Grunthal, both at 8:00 p.m. A pair of Saturday games, also with 8:00 p.m. starts, will have Red River hosting Grunthal at Altona and St. Adolphe travelling to Mitchell.  One Sunday game has the Huskies entertaining Grunthal at 7:00 p.m. at Steinbach.
