The Steinbach Pistons scored two goals in each period and Matt Radomsky stopped 25 shots to post the shutout as the Pistons blanked the Neepawa Natives 6-0 Wednesday night in Neepawa in the first MJHL game of 2019.
Steinbach looked sharp in this their first game action in 10 days, since a 4-3 victory over the Selkirk Steelers on Dec. 22.
Defenceman Doug Johnson and team captain Tyson McConnell paced the Pistons each with a goal and two assists. Brendan Westbrook, David Queree, Brady Tatro and Kyle Bettens rounded out the scoring for the Pistons in the victory over the last place Natives, who fell to 8-24-3-2.
It was Radomsky's league-leading fourth shutout of the season. He also leads all goaltenders with a 2.10 goals and average and is second with a .925 save percentage.
With the win, the third place Pistons improved their record to 25-11-2-0, now just a point back of the second place Swan Valley Stampeders and six behind the leading Portage Terriers. Both those teams also have two games in hand on the Pistons.
