The Winnipeg Blues edged the Steinbach Pistons 3-2 Sunday night at Bell MTS Iceplex to deadlock their Manitoba Junior Hockey League semi-final series at one game apiece.

Steinbach, who finished first overall in the standing this season, beat the sixth-ranked Blues 3-1 in the series opener Friday night at Steinbach.

Levi Cudmore, with his leading seventh goal of the playoffs and second of the game, scored the winner for the Blues with just over three minutes remaining in regulation.

Tied 1-1 after the first as Riese Gaber opened the scoring for the Pistons and Kelton Sutherland replied for the Blues, Cudmore gave the Blues a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes with the lone goal of the middle frame. Brendan Martin tied it for the Pistons two minutes into the third.

The Pistons outshot the Blues 42-31 as Matthew Thiessen made 28 saves in a losing cause for the Pistons while Jeremy Link stopped 40 for the Blues.

Game three in the best of seven series will be played Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Steinbach.

Meanwhile, in the other series, the Virden Oil Capitals lead the Winkler Flyers 2-0 following Virden's 5-2 win at Winkler Sunday night.
