CHILLIWACK, B.C. — Kraymer Barnstable is proving to be more than an adequate backup to Red Deer Rebels starting netminder Darcy Kuemper.

Barnstable stepped in for Kuemper on the back-end of a two-game in two-night Western Hockey League set and led the Rebels to a 5-2 victory over the Chilliwack Bruins Saturday.

Barnstable finished with 34 saves and was named the first star.

The Rebels fell behind 1-0 when Ryan Howse scored at 4:57 of the first period, but Ryan Nugent-Hopkins put Red Deer ahead for good when he connected at 9:44 and 11:26. Colten Mayor then notched his first WHL goal at 17:03 of the opening frame.

The Bruins Brandon Manning and Red Deer’s Landon Ferraro exchanged goals in the middle stanza with Nathan Green putting the game out of reach with a shorthanded, empty net marker at 18:01 of the final period.

The Rebels finished with 22 shots on Chilliwack starter Lucas Gore, who made four saves in the first period, and Mark Friesen.

The win gave the Rebels a 3-2 record on their five-game road trip and an 11-12 record overall.
