SIOUX FALLS -- Ben Kraws stopped all 32 shots he faced to give Sioux City the 6-0 victory over Sioux Falls here Wednesday.

Kraws stood tall as he stopped all nine Stampede power play efforts on the night to key the victory.

The Musketeers, who have been eliminated from postseason play, started well against the Stampede. Matyas Svoboda scored his sixth goal of the season just 43 seconds into the game off assists from Jack Babbage and Martin Pospisil.

Seven penalties -- four on the Musketeers followed -- but neither team was able to capitalize until Cole Koepke scored an even-strength tally with 14 seconds left in the first period. It was Koepke's 27th goal of the season and was assisted by Brady Ferner and Micah Miller.

The lead would double in the second period as the Musketeers took advantage of their fourth time on the power play when Parker Ford beat Mikhail Berdin. Ford added a second goal eight minutes later, his seventh on the season, which led to Berdin being pulled as he stopped 15 of the 19 shots he faced.

Micah Miller and Matt Miller scored in the third period to complete the scoring.

Sioux Falls, which has qualified for the playoffs, is 32-17-8.

Sioux City, now 24-26-7, closes out its season on the road against Tri-City on Friday and Omaha on Saturday.
