Huge helpin' of Hitmen on scoresheet

SCOTT FISHER -- Calgary Sun

One streak came to an end. The other is still very much alive.

Hitmen sniper Brodie Dupont was held off the scoresheet for the first time in a dozen contests.

But he was in the minority as Calgary got goals from six different players in a 7-2 rout of the visiting Medicine Hat Tigers at the 'Dome.

Calgary (11-6-0-1) won its fifth straight to move into third place in the Central Division.

Brett Sonne potted a pair while Dylan Yeo, Robin Figren, Derek LeBlanc and Freddie Pettersson also found the net.

"As one streak ends another keeps going," LeBlanc said. "The biggest thing is everyone's playing with a lot of confidence."

Derek Dorsett and Scott Wasden replied for the Tigers, who dropped both ends of a home-and-home set with the Hitmen this week.

Daniel Spence, named CHL goaltender of the week for a pair of shutouts last weekend, made 23 saves for the win.

The Hitmen blew a tight 3-2 game wide open with four unanswered goals, including two 44 seconds apart near the midway point.

Sonne, who scored his fifth and sixth goals of the campaign, said he's feeling more confident in his second season in the league.

"When the pucks are going in the net and are staying out of ours, you build up a little confidence."

The Sonne-Pettersson-Figren trio had another big night, chalking up eight points between them.

"They're hard-working guys and I love playing with them," Sonne said.

"It looks like we have some chemistry going."

After Dorsett opened the scoring, Yeo, playing in his fourth game of the season after returning from a wrist injury, brought the Hitmen even with a shorthanded marker.

The Tigers regained the lead before the period was out but the Hitmen connected on two of three powerplays attempts in the middle frame.

Figren's one-timer ricocheted off Ryan Holfeld's glove and went in. Sonne got the eventual game-winner when he chipped a rebound into the back of the net with two minutes to play in the period.
