Austin Rediron stopped all 33 shots sent his way, leading the Melfort Mustangs to a 3-0 win over the Flin Flon Bombers on opening night.
Devin Buffalo made 33 saves on 35 shots at the other end, but the Mustangs scored once per period, as B.C. product Ryan Keis broke the ice in the first, Brandon Sloan supplied the insurance in the second, and Adam Fauchoux scored into an empty net late in the third.
The scene shifts to the Whitney Forum in Flin Flon for the rematch on Saturday.
