Millionaires drop road decision on Friday night in Humboldt

The Melville Millionaires dropped their 8th straight after a 6-1 road loss to the Humboldt Broncos on Friday night from the EPA.

The Broncos got on the board first just 5:53 into the 1st as Alec Saretzky initial shot was stopped but he was able to pot the rebound five-hole on Clement Labillois for his team-leading 21st of the season to make it 1-0.

Humboldt added to lead just over 3 minutes later as Noah Barlage’s point shot was deflected in nicely by Cage Newans for his 16th to make it a two goal game after 20 minutes.

In the 2nd, the home team added to their lead with a couple of power play goals just 1:53 apart, off the sticks of Saretzky and Carsten Kayter to push their lead to 4-0 through 2 periods.

The Broncos made it 5-1 just 12:29 into the third period as Ben Kotylak netted his 15th of the season.

Caden Drury got the Mils on the board towards the tail-end of the third as he potted home a rebound off a Tucker Buhay initial shot to pull the visitors within 4.

But just 5 seconds later, Kotylak added his 2nd of the night to wrap up the scoring.

Benjamin Motew turned aside 20 of 21 shots in the Broncos net to grab his 13th win of the season, while Millionaires’ G Clement Labillois made 46 saves in the loss.

The Millionaires return to action on Saturday night hosting the La Ronge Ice Wolves at the HCUC for a 7:00PM puck drop.
