Rebels GM/ head coach Brent Sutter coaches 1000th WHL game

Giants 4 Rebels 1

Another late third period collapse cost the Red Deer Rebels Wednesday.

After Ethan Sakowich scored the opening goal of the game on the power play early in the third, the Vancouver Giants responded with four straight goals to close out a 4-1 win.

Tristen Nielsen tied the game a minute and a half later, Michael Kvasnica and Bowen Bryam scored 1:41 apart to close out the victory. Justin Sourdif also added an empty net goal for the Giants.

The Giants outshot the Rebels 32-15 in the first 40 minutes of contest.

Byron Fancy made 39 saves for the Rebels, while Trent Miner stopped 23 shots in the win for Vancouver.

While the Rebels suffered a loss Wednesday, it was also Brent Sutter’s 1000th game behind the bench for the club.

The Rebels will take on the Kamloops Blazers on Friday, before visiting the Kelowna Rockets Saturday.
