: Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex
3-2 in favour of Coquitlam. The Express are 2-0 against the Spruce Kings at home.
The last time Prince George visited Coquitlam, it was a heart breaking goal with less than thirty seconds left by Taylor Green to win the game 4-3 for the Express. It was back and forth all game, with Coquitlam taking the lead each time, but the Spruce Kings battling back to tie the game. Prince George has two wins this year against the Express, but have yet to win in the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. The first game wasn’t so close with the home team coming out with a 6-3 win. Both teams are coming off exciting games the previous night, as Prince George fired 65 shots on Justin Laforest, but wound up with the 2-2 tie after two periods of unsuccessful overtime. Coquitlam meanwhile only had four shots in the first period, but came back with four unanswered goals to beat the Trail Smoke Eaters on home ice. At home the Express lead the league for home power play percentage with a 31.5% success rate, and they were 2 for 4 last night. Discipline will be key for the Spruce Kings tonight if they want to come out with a win.
