CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) - Josh Aspenlind had two goals and an assist to lead the Chilliwack Bruins to a 5-2 victory over the Saskatoon Blades in WHL action on Tuesday.

Mark Santorelli, Ken Petkau and Cody Smuk also scored for Chilliwack (3-11-1-0), which has won two of its past three games. Oscar Moller added three assists. Bohdan Visnak and Ryan Menei replied for Saskatoon (4-7-0-1), which lost its third straight game on its five-game western road trip. The team has two more games left before it heads back home.

Chilliwack, led by its top line of Aspenlind, Santorelli and Moller, jumped on Saskatoon early and never let up.

Aspenlind opened scoring on a power play at 7:40 of the opening period, tipping a perfect pass from Santorelli behind Blades goalie Braden Holtby.

Santorelli made it 2-0 at 15:40 thanks to some hard work from Aspenlind, who forced a turnover and centred the puck to a wide open Santorelli, who fired it between Holtby's legs.

Aspenlind struck again at 2:46 of the second period, skating out front on a Bruins power play and snapping a low shot past Holtby on the blocker side.

Visnak cut the lead to 3-1 with a power-play goal for the Blades midway through the second period, but Petkau restored the three-goal cushion with another power-play goal for Chilliwack.

Menei and Smuk, with his first of the season, traded third-period goals.
