The Butte Cobras returned from the Holiday break to take on the Missoula Bruins.
Robin Bagley scored two goals and Butte goalie Karl Zodda made 65 saves, but the Cobras fell 8-3 to the Bruins due to a four-goal performance from Missoula’s Misha Akatnov, who now has 41 goals on the year.
On Saturday, the Cobras fell 14-4 to the Great Falls Americans. Butte’s Brandon Lyons would score his first goal of the season, and Wyatt Haakenson, Tyson Stovin and Will Shults would have a goal each. Dan Liner led the Cobras in assists with two.
