The Springfield Jr. Blues gave a big boost to their playoff chances as they picked up a weekend home sweep of the visiting Coulee Region Chill. Leading the way was veteran forward Fabio Hollenstein. The 21-year-old native of Fraunfeld, Switzerland, had six points (2 goals, 4 assists) in the two wins. On Friday, Hollenstein (6’3/205) had the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win and on Saturday, he exploded for a goal and four assists in a 6-3 win. In 43 games played so far this season, Hollenstein has 27 points. “Fabio has really elevated his game the past few weeks. He is very reliable away from the puck and has shown a scoring touch off late. We are going to need him down the stretch to continue his strong play,” said Jr. Blues head coach Tyler Rennette.
