Another game - another tie.
The Okanagan Rockets skated to a 1-1 tie with the Prince Albert Mintos Wednesday at the Telus Cup in Moose Jaw.
It's the third straight tie for the BC/Alberta midget champions coming on the heels of 3-3 draws with Chateauguay and host Moose Jaw.
The Rockets are just the second team in the 41 year history of the tournament to play to three ties during the preliminary round of the tournament.
The game was scoreless until Keegan Kjargaard put the Saskatchewan squad up 1-0 just 53 seconds into the third period.
As they have all tournament long the Rockets found a way to equalize late in the game.
Gen Bryshun beat the Prince Albert netminder with a wrist shot through a screen with less than seven minutes left to secure the single point.
Tanner Wishnowski picked up an assist on the goal giving him a tournament leading seven points (3 goals, 4 assists).
Wishnowski has been in on all seven Rockets goals.
Neither team had any success with the man advantage. The Rockets went 0-6 on the power-play while Prince Albert were 0-5.

The Kelowna Rockets season is hanging in the balance.
Nic Petan scored three power-play goals as his Portland Winterhawks scored five unanswered goals in a 5-1 thumping of the Kelowna Rockets Wednesday in Portland.
The Winterhawks lead the best-of-seven Western Conference final 3-1 with game five back at Prospera Place Friday night.
The Rockets controlled the opening 20 minutes and opened the scoring when Nick Merkley scored his fourth of the playoffs.
It would be the only shot that would beat Corbin Boes in the Portland net.
"We really did have a good first period. We felt like we played the way we needed to," Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert said on the post game radio show.
"Unfortunately in the second we started taking penalties and ultimately that's what changed the game. We were better than we were last night (Tuesday) five-on-five - I thought we had opportunities to score goals but once again if you are going to play against Portland and you're in the penalty box eventually they're going to make you pay.
The Hawks made the Rockets pay scoring three times with the man advantage and once while shorthanded.
Petan's first of the game late in the opening period tied it 1-1.
He made it 2-1 midway through the second on another power-play before Oliver Bjorkstrand scored his sixth of the series shorthanded less than a minute later.
Petan again and Paul Bittner into an empty net late in the third rounded out the scoring.
"When you play an elite team like Portland you need everybody to be really good and right now we have a lot of passengers," said Lambert.
"We have guys that for some reason will show energy for a shift or two and then they'll just disappear right off the face of the earth. I don't understand it - at this time of the year it's hard to watch, it's hard to take."
Lambert says they have to try and figure it out before Friday's fifth and possibly final game in the series.
"We need to put our best foot forward and that's the only way we're going to give ourselves a chance at beating this team."
Portland finished the night 3-8 on the power-play while the Rockets went 0-5 and gave up the shorthanded goal.
Should the Rockets prevail Friday a sixth game would be played back in Portland Sunday afternoon.
