You don't get points in the standings for style, you do get points if you end up at the end of the game with more goals than the opposition, and that was the case for the Express in their 3-1 win over the Nanaimo Clippers.
Nanaimo out shot the Express 44-22 and Khaleed Devji came up with a strong performance as the Clips set the pace for most of the game. Devji earned his first star performance stopping all but one of the shots sent his way.
The win snapped the Express' 8 game losing streak. During the run, the Express had limited production from their top offensive weapons. I had made the point many times if Brad Reid and Destry Stragight among others had found the scoresheet more often in the last 8 games, the results for the Express would be different.
Both Reid and Straight found the back of the net in the 2nd period for their first goals in the last 9 games.
