Shirokov Stays Hot, Assists in Moose Victory
Sergei Shirokov set up a beautiful goal to Alexandre Bolduc as the Manitoba Moose defeated the evenly-matched Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 in the AHL showdown Tuesday night. The 35-23-6 Moose have won 3 of their last 4 games, as Shirokov has worked up a hot streak tallying 3 points in the span. The Vancouver Canucks propsect leads his AHL club with 46 points in 60 games this season, as the Russian speedster continues to make a case for his future NHL career. There’s no doubt that Shirokov’s quick hands and sharp shot will prevail at the NHL level, as he already scored a key goal in one of the two games he has played with the Canucks this season. Shirokov and the rest of the Moose look to maintain their leading position in the competitive Western Conference North Division, as the race for the playoffs intensifies.
