Just when fans thought it was time to begin drafting the eulogy on 2016-17 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season for the Nelson Leafs the Buds showed some life.

Dale Howell had three points to lead the Leafs to a 5-3 victory over the Fernie Ghostriders in KIJHL action Saturday night in the East Kootenay City.

Not only does the win snap a six game winless streak but also the Leafs keep their hopes over overtaking the Grand Forks Border Bruins for third spot in the Murdoch Division.
