Kellen Briggs made his season debut and made 36 saves. Tim Kraus scored twice, including the game-winner. They were Kraus’ first two goals since Jan. 2. Quite a breakthrough performance for both of them.
Itan Chavira also scored to extend his point streak to four straight games.
Both teams looked snazzy, if not different, in their NHL affiliate tribute jerseys. More in tomorrow’s editions.
