The Steinbach Pistons won their fifth straight game Monday afternoon at the Seven Oaks Rec Centre with a 3-1 victory over the Neepawa Natives in Steinbach's opening game at the annual MJHL Showcase.
While Pistons veteran netminder Matt Radomsky was away making 19 saves in leading Team Canada West to a 6-1 victory over Team Canada East at the World Junior 'A' Challenge in Alberta, Matt Lenz was taking care of business between the pipes for the Pistons.
Lenz faced only 13 shots in yesterday's game as the Pistons outshot the Natives 36-13 as the Pistons controlled this game from the outset.
Brendan Westbrook in the first, Boedey Vaeth in the second and Tristan Culleton in the third, were the Steinbach goal scorers.
Cam Olstad spoiled Matt Lenz's shutout bid as he scored with only 1:03 remaining in regulation. Lenz, now 6-1-1 on the season, lowered his goals against average to 2.28, which is second in the league to Radomsky, who leads with a 2.11 GAA.
Each MJHL team is playing two regular season games at the beautiful Seven Oaks Rec Centre this week. In other games on Monday, the Winnipeg Blues doubled OCN 4-2 and Selkirk outscored Wayway 6-1.
With the win, the Pistons remain in third place with a 21-9-1-0 record, just three points back of the second Swan Valley Stampeders.
The Pistons will play their final game at the Showcase Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. against the Virden Oil Capitals.
