With last night's 7-2 win over the Strathmore Wheatland Kings, the Gens keep racking up the wins. Unfortunately, so have the Coaldale Copperheads.

The Gens are on an eight-game winning streak and are currently in second place in the south division of the Heritage Junior Hockey League. That could all change by the end of the weekend. The Coaldale Copperheads have one game in hand and play their last two games of the regular season against the Kings in a home-and-home series.

Right now, the Copperheads have 46 points, the Gens 47 and Okotoks Bisons 48. That's how tight it has been between the top teams in the south division in the fight to finish first. The High River Flyers were challenging but have lost their last six games and sit with 37 points and a fourth-place finish.

Last night, the Gens riddled the Kings netminders with 42 shots, while it was a quiet night for Gens goalie Erik Garber at the other end, facing just 13. Talus Hume picked up goals number 30, 31 and 32, setting a new personal record in goals in a single season. Singles went to Braden Bain, who continues to pick up momentum as the season progresses, River Ross, Brandon Aab and Austin Strang.

Hume linemate Slater Ransom had three assists on the evening, Jarod Domingo and Austin Keller both had two and other helpers went to Jordan Fisher, Colton Wong and Brandon Aab.

The Gens are in Medicine Hat tonight to wrap up the regular season on the road. Coaldale beat High River, 7-4, last night and on Sunday the Bisons wrap up their season against Medicine Hat.
