Chiefs On 9 Game Win Streak – Chop Down Spruce Kings (VIDEO)

Chilliwack, BC – Jordan Kawaguchi scored twice as the Chiefs downed the Prince George Spruce Kings 4-1 at Prospera Centre Saturday.

With the win the Chiefs extend their win streak to 9 games, improving to 15-5-1-2.

The Spruce Kings fell to 5-16-0-2.

After a scoreless opening period, Chiefs captain Jordan Kawaguchi opened the scoring 6:43 into period two.

Taking a turn on the big line to replace injured forward Vimal Sukumaran, Eric Benshadle earned the assist with an aggressive forecheck that produced a turnover behind the PG net. Kawaguchi pounced on the puck,  tucking it between the post and Sam Tanguay’s out-stretched skate  for his 11th of the year.

Chilliwack doubled its lead with 3:25 to go in the middle frame.

Defenceman Austin Adam picked up his first of the year, beating Tanguay’s through a screen with a wrist shot from the high slot.

Kawaguchi picked up his second of the game with 17.5 seconds left, converting on a nice centering pass from Darien Craighead.

Chilliwack goalie Aidan Pelino had a shutout streak of 155:58 dating back to the first period of last weekend’s win over Salmon Arm. The Spruce Kings snapped it on a Braiden Epp tally 4:05 into the final frame.

That was the only puck eluding Pelino, who only had 14 shots directed his way.

Tanguay faced 34, coming to the bench with 2:04 remaining for the extra attacker.

Mitch Skapski scored his fifth of the year into the empty net at 18:20 to wrap up the scoring.

The Three Stars were Kawaguchi (first), Benshadle (second) and Adam (third).

The Fortis BC Energy Player of the Game was Linden Hora.

Attendance was 2,898.
