Bruins win streak ends in Lethbridge

The Chilliwack Bruins were in Lethbridge tonight where once again extra time was

needed to decide the winner. After an overtime win in Red Deer Tuesday, and a shootout win in Calgary Wednesday, the Bruins three game win streak came to an end as the Lethbridge Hurricanes (17-15-2-2) defeated Chilliwack (10-22-2-2) 2-1 in a shootout.

The Hurricanes carried the play in the first period, directing nine pucks at Bruins goaltender Matt Esposito while the Bruins could only manage three shots on 'Canes netminder Justin Leclerc. Both goaltenders were perfect in the first, no score after one period of play.

The second period saw the Bruins outshoot Lethbridge 7-4 but again the goaltenders were unbeatable. Scoreless after two.

The Hurricanes finally got on the board just over a minute into the third as Travis Bobbee notched his fourth of the season triggering the Hurricanes' annual Teddy Bear Toss. A goal by Mark Santorelli, his 18th of the season at the 10:37 mark rounded out the scoring in regulation time.

Five minutes of overtime decided nothing. In the shootout, Kris Hogg, the Western Hockey League's top goal getter and the final shooter of the night scored the only goal of the shootout to give Lethbridge a 2-1 shootout victory.

Final shots on goal were Lethbridge 24, Chilliwack 21.

The Hurricanes went 0/6 on the power play, the Bruins were 0/9.

The Bruins finish off their four game road trip Saturday night in Medicine Hat. Game time is 6:30 pacific time. The pre game show on Bruins radio 88.1 FM begins at 6:00pm.

Ice Chips: Oscar Moller, Nick Holden and Mark Santorelli were all stopped by Lethbridge goaltender Justin Leclerc in the shootout...The Bruins have now completed the first half of the season...Chilliwack remains one point back of the fourth place Kelowna Rockets. The Rockets have two games in hand...The Bruins next home game is versus Kelowna on December 27th. Call the Bruins ticket hotline to reserve your tickets at 604.702.0062.

T-Birds double up Chiefs

Seattle, December 15, 2006 - Bud Holloway had two goals and Aaron Gagnon had a goal and two assists to lead the Seattle Thunderbirds to a 6-3 victory over the Spokane Chiefs in front of 4,193 Friday night at KeyArena.

Seattle's record is now 14-9-1-8 in the US Division and they are one point behind the Spokane Chiefs and Tri-City Americans, who are tied for second place in the division.

Seattle took a 1-0 lead at 3:42 of the first period when Ian McKenzie knocked in his own rebound. Scott Jackson took a point shot that Spokane goalie Kevin Armstrong stopped. McKenzie put the rebound back on goal which Armstrong stopped. McKenzie jumped around a Spokane defender to get his shot and was able to beat Armstrong high. Greg Scott had the second assist on McKenzie's seventh goal of the year. Spokane (17-12-3-1) tied the game 1-1 at 14:35 of the first on a goal by Seth Compton. Dan Mercer had the assist.

Holloway put the T-Birds up 2-1 at 15:57 of the first on a beautiful goal. Jan Eberle got the puck to Holloway in the neutral zone. Holloway brought the puck into the Spokane zone on the right side with two defensemen in front of him. Holloway, going right to left, put the puck underneath the stick of the defender on his right, causing him to fall down. Holloway then headed towards the high slot with the defender on his left coming at him. Holloway, a right- handed shot, went to his left again to get around that defender and then beat Armstrong with a backhand shot high on the glove side. It was Holloway's 10th goal of the year.

Spokane outshot Seattle 15-13 in the first period.

Gagnon put the T-Birds up 3-1 with a power-play goal at 7:39 of the second period. Gagnon brought the puck up ice on the right side. He beat a Spokane defender just outside the Chiefs blue line and came in on a two-on-one with Eberle on his left. Gagnon elected to shoot and beat Armstrong high on the glove side for his 21st goal of the year. Thomas Hickey had the assist on the goal.

Seattle struck on the power-play for a second time on the night when Josh Schappert scored at the 10- minute mark of the second. Gagnon had the puck along the boards on the left side. He fed the puck to Schappert on the goal line. Schappert skated towards the goal and attempted a pass to Jeremy Boyer in the crease. The pass hit a Spokane defender and was redirected past Armstrong. Bretton Stamler had the second assist on Schappert's third goal of the year.

Dustin Tokarski replaced Armstrong in the Chiefs goal at 11:02 of the second. Armstrong made 21 saves on 25 shots and with the loss his record dropped to 10- 8-2-1.

Holloway made it a 5-1 T-Birds lead at 14:07 of the second on a power-play goal. Holloway was in front of the Spokane goal and knocked in a rebound from a Gagnon shot. Stamler had the second assist on Holloway's second goal of the night.

The T-Birds outshot the Chiefs 16-5 in the second period and led 29-20 going into the second intermission.

Drayson Bowman scored a power-play goal for the Chiefs at 6:32 of the third period to cut the T-Birds lead to three goals. Ondrej Roman and Derek Ryan had the assists.

Judd Blackwater scored an unassisted short-handed goal at 8:37 of the third to make it a 5-3 Seattle lead.

Chris Durand scored an unassisted empty-net goal at 17:47 of the third. Durand blocked a high point shot, got the puck in the neutral zone and raced the length of the ice to score the goal. Spokane had pulled their goalie for an extra attacker. It was Durand's fourth goal of the year.

Seattle outshot Spokane 37-26 in the game.

Seattle goalie Derek Yeomans made 23 saves on 26 shots and improved his record to 11-6-1-6.

Tokarski made seven saves on eight shots.

Seattle and Spokane meet again on Saturday night in Spokane. Game time is 7 p.m. Seattle finishes out the weekend Sunday against the Everett Silvertips at 5:05 p.m. at KeyArena.

Tri-City Rockets Past Portland, 5-2

KENNEWICK, WA - It's rare that halfway through the season that you find two teams in a must-win situation. But, after falling into third place in the U.S. Division and performing poorly against the Portland Winter Hawks last Sunday, the Tri-City Americans were in that very spot.

On Friday night, you had Tri-City, losers of two straight and in danger of falling into fourth-place in the division, and the 'Hawks, who snapped their five-game losing streak and were attempting to dig their way out of last-place. Led by Shaun Vey's two goal night, the Tri-City Americans (19-12-0-0, 38 pts) pushed past the Portland Winter Hawks (10-21-0-1, 21 pts) 5-2 in front of 3,547 at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.

Tri-City tallied the all-important first goal of the game, while on the power play, with just over 8 minutes remaining in the first period. Off assists from Jarrett Toll and Alex Aldred, Joel Broda registered his sixth goal of the season. Four of Broda's six goals have come while on the power play.

Tri-City took the 1-0 lead into the second period, which was marred by penalties for both teams. Portland was called for six penalties in the period, allowing Tri-City to constantly pepper Portland goaltender, Kurtis Mucha, with shots. Tri-City finished with a season-high of 46 shots in the game.

However, despite the six power play opportunities, Tri-City could only manage one even-strength goal. Off assists from Broda and Tanner Gillies, Shaun Vey tallied his first of two goals at the 8:47 mark of the second period, giving Tri-City a 2-0 lead.

Yet, the 'Hawks, who killed penalty after penalty, did not back down, and answered with a goal of their own 32 seconds later. Portland's Viktor Sjodin came in all alone and beat Tri-City goaltender Chet Pickard short-side, to cut the Americans lead in half, 2-1. Pickard faced a tough 20 shots on the night, picking up 18 saves in route to his seventh win of the season.

But, in the third period, all those minutes on the penalty kill finally caught up to the 'Hawks. At one point, Portland had nine straight penalties called against them and finished with 15 infractions on the night. Tired and dragging, Tri-City scored three goals just four minutes apart to separate themselves from the 'Hawks and put the game out of reach in the third period.

Taylor Procyshen added the first third-period goal, just 4:07 into the frame, marking his 15th goal of the season. Then, 1:05 later, off assists from Kruise Reddick and Drew Hoff, newly-added defenseman, Zach Sim, collected his first goal as a member of the Tri-City Americans. Vey capped off the scoring for Tri-City at the 7:59 mark, with his second of night and seventh goal of the season, to make it a 5-1 game.

Portland's Chris Francis added a power play goal with 4:20 remaining in the game, but it was too little too late for the 'Hawks as they dropped their road record to 3-13-0-1 on the season. Mucha finished the game with 41 saves, the second-highest output of his career.

The two teams have no time to rest, as both teams head to the Rose City tomorrow, Saturday, December 16 to meet for the third time in seven days. Game time is 7:30 PM. You can catch all the action live on NewsTalk 870 AM, starting with the Budweiser Warm-Up Show at 7:15 PM. You can also listen live through the Americans website by visiting the Internet Radio Broadcast page under Fanzone or by visiting the individual game summary page. It will be the last game before the Western Hockey League breaks for nine days to celebrate the holidays.

Notes:

Taylor Procyshen is enjoying the month of December. In six games played, he has registered 6 goals and 10 points, including 3 power play goals and one game-winning goal. Procyshen has also set career-highs in both goals (15) and points (25) this season...With his two goals tonight, Shaun Vey established a new career-high for goals scored in a season with 7. It was his third two-goal game of the 2006-07 season...Defenseman Zach Sim recorded his first goal in a Tri-City uniform on Friday night. It was his first goal since March 11, 2005 while playing for the Everett Silvertips...After having his six-game point streak snapped against Portland last Sunday, Erik Felde picked up where he left off, assisting on Procyshen's third-period goal. Felde has now recorded a point in 11 of his last 14 games.
