The Swift Current Broncos will look to get back into seventh spot in the WHL's Eastern Conference standings when they visit the Saskatoon Blades tonight at SaskTel Centre.

On Tuesday night, Matthew Savoie had a goal and an assist as the Winnipeg ICE beat the Medicine Hat Tigers 3-1. The Tigers are still two points ahead of the Broncos and Swift Current can move back into a tie for seventh with a win and a regulation loss for Medicine Hat in their game in Brandon tonight.

The Broncos and Blades have split their season series so far with Saskatoon winning 8-3 at home in October, and the Broncos taking a 5-4 shootout win at InnovationPlex in January. The teams will play their last head-to-head matchup of the season next Wednesday in Swift Current.

Tonight's game is on the Eagle 94.1 FM with Living Sky Casino Broncos Hockey starting at 6:30pm.

In other action on Tuesday, Brandon edged Prince Albert 4-3 and Kamloops got past Seattle 3-2. Regina hosts Edmonton and Red Deer welcomes Lethbridge in other action tonight.

Team Saskatchewan falls into must-win territory at Brier

Kelly Knapp and Team Saskatchewan lost 9-7 to Nova Scotia to fall to 2-3 at the Tim Hortons Brier in London, Ontario on Tuesday. 

Knapp started the game with two points in the first end and after forcing Matthew Manuel to a single in the second, Knapp scored two more in the third to go up 4-1. The two teams traded deuces in the next three ends before Manuel stole one to tie the game 6-6 after seven ends. Nova Scotia forced Knapp to a single in the eighth and took a 8-7 lead with two in the ninth before picking up a steal of one in the tenth to wrap up their third win.

Saskatchewan will likely need to win their remaining games to have a chance at making the playoffs as they face Tanner Horgan and Northern Ontario in their only game of the day this morning.
