Bruggeman, Bandits bounce back

The St. Louis Bandits rebounded from Tuesday's tournament-opening loss and defeated the Traverse City North Stars 4-1 on Wednesday, the second day of the North American Hockey League's Robertson Cup championship in Wenatchee, Wash.

North Mankato's Tyler Bruggeman stopped 20 of 21 shots, allowing only a first-period goal that put St. Louis down 1-0 midway through the period. The Bandits responded and tied the game 62 seconds later, scoring the first of four unanswered goals.

St. Louis will play Fairbanks on Thursday before getting Friday off. The Bandits will play Wenatchee on Saturday. The round-robin tournament's top two teams will meet for the title on Sunday.
