The Trinity Western Spartans returned from the holiday break but the goal scoring remained on hiatus.

Thankfully, that was also the case for their opponent, Eastern Washington, as the two teams skated to a scoreless tie on Friday at the Langley Events Centre in men’s hockey action.

The Spartans’  Tim Zwiers stopped 27 shots for his first shutout of the season.

Trinity Western is 3-8-3 on the season.

“You see a little rust kick off but that’s for both teams,” said Spartans coach Dwayne Lowdermilk. “But with pretty much just a week’s worth of practices before tonight, I’m proud of how the boys played. The biggest part for us is the defence. We lost a few guys on the blueline over the break but a number of guys stepped up for us tonight.
