Calgary 5 Moose Jaw 2

The Calgary Hitmen stretched their season high winning streak to six games with a 5-2 home ice win over the Moose Jaw Warriors Friday night at Scotiabank Saddledome.

It's the first time the Hitmen have won six straight since the 2009/10 season, when they rattled off nine straight to end the regular season.

After giving up the lone goal of the first period to the Warriors Shayne Gwinner, the Hitmen struck for five unanswered.

Brady Brassart started the comeback scoring his 15th of the season while Trevor Cheek with his 13th and Collin Bowman with his 11th helped Calgary strike for three goals in a span of 5:48 early in the second period.

In the third, Cody Sylvester with his 16th and Rob Trzonkowski with his first of the season extended the Hitmen lead to 5-1.

Travis Brown then rounded out the scoring for Moose Jaw who out shot the Hitmen 29-26.

Trevor Cheek led the Calgary scoring attack with three points (1g 2a) while Brady Brassart (1g 1a) and Jimmy Bubnick (2a) both had two points each.

Brandon Glover made 27 saves to record his fourth straight win in the Calgary net.

The game also featured an oddity for Calgary, not one powerplay chance.

The Hitmen will host the Edmonton Oil Kings Sunday afternoon.  Game time is 2:00 p.m. at Scotiabank Saddledome.
