The Swift Current Broncos were on the right side of a shutout Friday night.

The Broncos blanked the Red Deer Rebels 4-0 at the Centrium as Josh Derko, Dillon Heatherington, Brad Hoban and Taylor Vause each chipped in a goal. Hoban added two assists as well.

However, the real star as has been the case many evening was Jon Groenheyde. Was the game's first star after not only getting a shutout but by stopping 45 Red Deer shots doing it. This was the fourth consecutive game the Broncos' goaltenders have seen more than 40 shots during the course of a game. In fact, the Broncos have given up 93 shots in the last two games alone.

Swift Current now has the unenviable task of going into Edmonton Saturday. Edmonton leads the Eastern Conference with a 42-15-3-4 record. They have won their last three games and are 6-3-1-0 in their last 10.

Swift Current is now 24-34-2-6.
