Sidorov rolls to OT winner as Saskatoon Blades take wild Game 4 over Moose Jaw Warriors

Egor Sidorov thought about going with his patented between-the-legs shot while staring down Moose Jaw Warriors goaltender Jackson Unger in overtime Wednesday.

Instead, he went to a series of dekes that has evened up the WHL’s Eastern Conference Final series for the Saskatoon Blades.

Sidorov’s goal 3:29 into overtime gave the Blades a 5-4 victory over Moose Jaw in a wild and unpredictable Game 4 to knot up the series at 2-2, turning the East Final into a best-of-three to decide who will be coming out of the conference.
