Matt Radomsky posted his league-leading sixth shutout of the season Wednesday night in Steinbach as he backstopped the Steinbach Pistons to a narrow 1-0 victory over the last place Neepawa Natives.
It was the second straight shutout for the Pistons after Matt Lenz blanked the Winkler Flyers 5-0 last Saturday.
Riley Vautour, with his 11th goal of the season, assisted by Brendan Martin and Nico Labossiere, scored the lone goal of the game five minutes into the second.
There was also only one penalt in the game, and that was a second period minor to the Natives.
Radomsky stopped all 28 shots he faced to post the shutout. At the other end, Nik Anderson had a strong game in net for the Natives, stopping 37 of 38 shots.
With the win, the third place Pistons improve their Manitoba Junior Hockey League record to 34-14-2-0, three points back of the second place Swan Valley Stampeders.
The Pistons return home to host the Virden Oil Capitals Friday in Steinbach and then hit the road for a return match-up with the Neepawa Natives on Saturday. Both those games get underway at 7:30 p.m.
