Austin 0 @ Minot 1 – The goaltending continued on Saturday night in Minot as Tyler Parks bested Nick Lehr as the Minotauros completed a weekend home sweep of the Bruins with a 1-0 shutout victory.  Parks and Lehr continued to turn away every shot they saw and it was scoreless after the first.  Then early in the 2nd period Zach Holstrom found Jadin Martin behind the Bruins defense.  Martin came streaking in along the right wing boards cut towards the net; he fired a wrist shot past Lehr putting the Tauros ahead 1-0.  The Tauros missed a chance to extend the lead when they failed to score on a prolonged powerplay which ran almost six minutes including 0:18 of a 5-on-3 advantage.  In the end Parks made it stand up stopping 22 shots on the night including 11 in the final period to lead the Tauros to a 1-0 victory and a weekend sweep.
