Hart, 19, earned his third shutout of the season as he stopped 21 shots in the third period and was named first star of the game. The reigning WHL Goaltender of the Week also earned the 91st win of his career, currently second on the Silvertips all-time wins list (16 behind Irving, also holding the record in that category).
