Below is a recap of Tuesday's USHL game:



Ben Kraws stopped all 23 shots he faced to lead the Sioux City Musketeers to a 3-0 shutout win over the Des Moines Buccaneers at the Tyson Events Center on Tuesday.


Sioux City jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead with an Ian Malcolmson power play goal with just under two minutes gone in the first period.


It remained a 1-0 game until early in the final 20 minutes, when Parker Ford scored his fifth goal of the season to double the Musketeers' lead. Brock Baker completed the scoring late in the third period, with the assist coming to Malcolmson. Both players' tallies were their first in the USHL.


USHL leading scorer, Calgary Flames prospect and St. Lawrence commit Martin Pospisil recorded his 12th assist and 16th point of the year on Ford's goal, extending his season-opening point streak to eight games. Kraws' 23-save whitewash, his first of the season, moved him to 5-2 on the year and was the third shutout of his USHL career.
