Broncos stalled the usual potent Medicine Hat Tiger offence for the first two periods and skated away with an im- pressive 64 triumph in Western Canada Hockey League action at the Sportsplex Friday evening. "Our guys simply played their hearts out said Ingarfield Friday as the crowd of were heading for the exits. "We really wanted that the coach added. Ingarfield admitted it is always nice to beat Medicine Hat, but Friday's victory also helped in the standings. Broncos are now just six points back of Saskatoon Blades who lead the eastern division of the league. "It was a big win for added Ingar- field. It was also a big night for Brian Sutter and Bryan Trottier. Sutter, who has an uncanny knack for scoring twice early in a game and then becoming frustrated looking for number three, pulled the trigger on his first hat trick of the season as he sparked the Bron- cos Linemate Trottier, defenceman Doug Gillespie and newcomer Gary Wagner added singles for the Broncos as they pinn- ed the Tigers up against the ropes 4-0 and 5-1 by periods. Don Murdoch matched Sutler's three- goal performance for the Tigers but it wasn't enough Tom Bast added a solo marker early in the third period to start a Tiger comeback that was too little, too late. Ingarfield didn't say the score flattered Medicine Hat but he did admit that Bast's marker did drop the Broncos into a defen- sive shell. Trottier, who also added three assists and felt he should have had more, got the Broncos out of the gate in a hurry as he scored from defenceman John Lutz at the mark of the opening period Broncos had been applying strong pressure on the Tigers but had been thwarted by netminder Ken Holland. However Trottier managed to jam the puck past Holland as the locals enjoyed a man advantage Sutter scored his first of the night just a minute later while he Trottier were killing a penalty. In all fairness, Trottier did the work on the play as he undressed the Tiger defence and slipped the puck to Sutter who simply put the puck behind a helpless Holland. Sutter came back 10 minutes later as he and Trottier again combined. Tigers' Darrel Durand was off for holding as Sutter hit Trottier with a pass just crossing the 'Hat blueline. Again side the 'Hat blueline and then took a perfect Bancks pass and drove it past Trottier pulled the defenders his way and slipped it to Sutter and bingo. Wagner, who joined the club from Win- nipeg Friday morning, watched as linemate Jerry Bancks stole the puck in- Holland Wagner had his share of chances as he performed solidly in his first Bronco game. Gillespie potted what proved to be the winner at of the second period as he blasted a blueline shot past a surprised Holland. Tigers were two men short as Gillespie scored. "But so were we just earlier and didn't give them a chance at said a happy Gillespie. Broncos killed time for a minute and three seconds while two men sat out penalties. Murdoch, who Bronco coach Ingarfield says is very quick and sneaks in behind you, scored for the Tigers while they were shorthanded to narrow the Bronco margin to 5-1 with 20 minutes left in the game. In the third period Bast, from Murdoch at 1.19 gave the Tigers new life and they almost took full advantage of it. Murdoch moved the Tigers to within two goals at as he took a perfect pass from Bast and beat Lethbridge netminder Rollie Boutin cleanly from close in. However, Sutter put the game away as he fired home his third of the night after taking a pass from Bancks in the Tiger corner. "Look what it cost me for that said Bancks as he showed a welt behind his left ear thanks to a cheap elbow from Tiger defenceman Brian Maxwell. Murdoch's goal at 15 37 simply earned the Tigers a small margin of respect on the night The two clubs split 10 minor penalties while the Broncos outshot the Tigers 32-23. Ingarfield oozed with pride Friday as he made it clear his club played great. "Now, if we can play like that Sunday night we just might even a few scores we have to settle with New Westminster he said. Bruins are here Sunday night for a seven o'clock encounter In two meetings between the Broncos and Bruins the host club has dominated. The Broncos won 11-6 here and lost 10-5 at the coast. LOOSE PUCKS Friday's three stars were Bryan Trottier, Brian Sutter and Don Murdoch Broncos took just 17 shots in the first period and made Ken Holland stop nine while scoring four times Friday marked the first time in four meetings between the Broncos and Tigers that the locals had taken the lead Barry Dean was missing from the Tiger line-up due to pulled ligaments and Greg Vaydik was not up to par as he had a leg in- jury as well Broncos look for a win Sunday as they hit the road for three games next week.
