D Dane Crowley, EVT: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM, *First Star*
Crowley scored his second of the season and was named First Star. According Nick Patterson of the Everett Herald, Crowley and top pair defensive partner Taylor Ellington "did yeoman's work" on the backline, helping limit Saskatoon to 20 shots, and Crowley was "a man among boys." Crowley's goal came on a wrister from the point that found its way through traffic and over goaltender Braden Holtby's shoulder.
Results from Kelowna, Lewiston, and Victoria on the flip.
Unforced errors cost the Lightning the game.
