REID SCORES IN LOSS
Express sniper Brodie Reid scored his second goal of the exhibition in the first period, but his Canada West squad fell 4-2 to Canada East Friday night.
Reid opened the scoring 8 minutes into the first, and the game was tied at 2 after 40 minutes. That's when Canada East turned it on outshooting Canada West 14-4 in the third period and added goals by Zach Horvato and Stephen Horyl into an empty net to come away victorious.
The win was the first for Canada East over their western rivals. Both losses coming in the championship game of the first two years of the tournament.
Canada West sees their exhibition record finish at 1-1. They will open the tournament Sunday vs. Belarus.
