Bucks blank Vees with 1-0 shootout win

The Cranbrook Bucks erased an eight-game losing slide on Wednesday with a 1-0 shutout of the Penticton Vees.

The top team in the Penticton Pod, the Vees dropped just their second game all season as the Bucks pushed Penticton’s record to 9-1-0-1 while improving their own to 2-9-0-0.

Jay Thomson made 22 saves for the shutout, stopping two of three shooters in the shootout to help Cranbrook secure their second victory of the season. Christian Lowe and Walker Gelbard both scored in the shootout, beating Vees netminder Kaleb McEachren.

Snapping their eight-game slide, the Bucks will look to build momentum heading into Saturday’s rematch with the Vees. Both teams will faceoff at 7 p.m. MT.
