Current Record

Prince George once again started the scoring, but couldn’t keep the tide rolling back in the Mainland.

A night after taking down the Cowichan Valley Capitals 3-0, the Spruce Kings again scored the first goal of the game, but allowed Langley to score the next five to take a 5-1 win on home ice.

It took just about fifteen minutes for either team to break the scoreless draw, and that was courtesy of Corey Hoffman. Taking a pass from Burnaby Winter Club callup Ethan De Jong, Hoffman walked to the bottom of the left faceoff circle, and sniped the puck into the top left corner over the shoulder of Nickolas Trenciansky.

After a 29 save shutout the night before, Sam Tanguay had a busy first period, and just about made it out unscathed, until Matty Saharchuk was able to bat a rebound out of mid-air, and past Tanguay.

Turning Point: Instead of heading to the first intermission with the lead, the Spruce Kings allowed a goal with 1:17 left in the first giving Langley life.

            The second period didn’t feature any goals, until the Rivermen were able to strike twice in the final five minutes with the home team also scoring with 24 seconds left to take a 3-1 lead into the third.

            The final frame would prove to be no better for the Spruce Kings, as Langley scored twice more to take the final by a score of 5-1.

In the first and second, PG had two power plays each, and were also shutout on their lone chance in the third. The Spruce Kings are now 0 for their last 23 power play attempts stretching back the final two power plays against the Coquitlam Express on December 3rd
