Elliot Plourde, Hunter Pierce and Ty Niskanen each scored a goal, and Garrett Dryden pitched a shutout Monday night as the Helena Bighorns skated to a 3-0 win over the Butte Cobras at the Butte Community Ice Rink. (Stats)
Helena, which jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, outshot Butte 40-19. Butte goalie Karl Zodda turned away 37 shots in the loss.
The Cobras will have a bit of a break following the New Year’s Eve game. Butte travels to Great Falls to take on the Americans on Jan. 11.
