Matteo Gennaro had three points and a goal in the shootout as the Swift Current Broncos erased 3-0 and 4-2 deficits in the third period to beat Moose Jaw 5-4 in the shootout.

Beck Malenstyn drove the net hard from the left side to create a rebound for Gennaro's tying goal with just over three minutes to play in the third period.

It was Malenstyn's first point in his first game with the Broncos since a blockbuster trade with Calgary.

Glenn Gawdin scored once and had an assist for Swift Current as the Christmas break did nothing to stall his torrid pace of late. Gawdin is now riding an 11 game point streak and hit the 70 point mark for the first time in his career.

Max Patterson and Kaden Elder also scored for the Broncos in their third period comeback. Patterson now has seven points in his last six games.

Gennaro is up to sixteen points in ten games since joining Swift Current from Calgary.

Brayden Burke had a goal and two assists for Moose Jaw in a losing cause. Justin Almeida scored twice for the Warriors.

Moose Jaw got off to a quick start with two goals in the first 1:33. They both came on bad bounces as the first was a Logan Flodell poke check that landed right on Burke's stick and the second deflected in off Sahvan Khaira's skate.

Flodell bounced back and was very good in the third period and overtime in securing the comeback victory. He made 34 saves for his fifth straight win and the team's sixth.

That was the first of the five games between the two teams so far this season that the home team has managed to win. Swift Current is now three points behind the Warriors heading into the re-match tomorrow night in Moose Jaw.

The Broncos were without Tyler Steenbergen, Aleksi Heponiemi and Artyom Minulin due to World Juniors. Jacson Alexander will report to the team later this week after inking his WHL contract betfore Christmas.

WIth only five regular defencemen in the lineup at the moment the Broncos called up 16-year-old Carter Spenst and he played well in his first WHL game.
