Jesse Shynkaruk’s 10th game-winning goal of the year was a big one.
The veteran centre had both Blades goals in a 2-1 overtime win for Saskatoon over the Red Deer Rebels.
With the win, Saskatoon is one point ahead of Calgary for the final wildcard spot in the East. However, the Hitmen have a game in hand.
Logan Flodell made 35 saves for his 20th win of the season.
The Blades visit Calgary Wednesday night with a chance to go three points up on the Hitmen in the playoff race.
