Things started off well for the Kindersley Jr. Klippers Tuesday night in Weyburn. After the team fell behind 1-0 early, they bounced back with three straight goals before the first period ended. Tying the game was Adam Paplawski, matching his jersey number with 10th of the season on the powerplay. 

Then just a minute later, Tylin Hilbig, who played his strongest game of the season, gave the Klippers the lead on a nice shot pass by Logan Linklater, who returned to the lineup for Kindersley. The goal was Hilbig's 8th of the season, the assist was Linklater's 8th in just his 11th game played for his hometown Klippers.

Then late in the period, Cash Arntsen, who had his strongest game of the season, potted a nice Tylin Hilbig pass on the doorstep for his 6th of the season to give the Klippers a two goal spread.

The second period saw no scoring, but a crazy third period saw a grand total of six goals, five of them by the hometown Red Wings.

Simon Pollock got on the board twice, and defenseman Ian Meier also scored as well, as the Wings built up a 4-3 lead. Klippers Head Coach & GM Ken Plaquin call a timeout to calm down the troops, as the goals came in the first 3:59 of the third period.

It seemed to work, as the Klippers got a powerplay and converted for the second time in four opportunities. Cash Arntsen got his second of the game, on a nice deflection off of a Nathan DeGraves shot to even the game at four. 

Things looked got for Kindersley late, as they got another late powerplay, as defenseman Nicholas Kovacs took down Logan Linklater in the crease to take away a sure tap in goal. 

But the Red Wings went to work short handed, as Ryley Morgan started a 2-on-2 rush, and crisscrossed with Max Monette, Morgan dropped the pass and Monette went upstairs on Cody Jaman to give Weyburn a 5-4 lead which they would not relinquish. 

Jacob Kalin ended his strong night with an empty netter, his 17th of the season, and third point of the game to ice the Red Wings victory.

This was a game the Klippers should have won, they played an excellent 40 minutes, but imploded early in the third period, giving up three goals in a short period of time. They showed some heart to comeback and tie the game, but Weyburn proved it's not how you start a game, it's how you finish. 

Game two of the four games in five night road trip is in Wilcox Wednesday night, with the Murlin Electronics pregame show beginning at 7:45 pm.
