Last night at the North Peace Arena, the Fort St John Huskies slipped by the Sexsmith Vipers 3-2 to take Game 1 of the Best of 5 NWJHL first round series. Cole Calliou and Dave Marshell each had a goal and an assist, while Blair Karasiuk picked up the other single as Travis Mclean played phenomenal in net, making 28 saves. On the other side, Lance Steinke and Jordon Chase responded for the Vipers, who got 33 stops from Nigel Heath of Weyburn, Sask.
