Chiefs Rated ‘R’ In P.G.

The Chilliwack Chiefs are winners in eight of their last nine games. They’ve scored first in nine of their last ten. Their response to finishing a game with fifteen skaters, eight of them forwards, was a 6-0 victory.

These guys.

Austin Plevy scored twice….. Tanner Cochrane got himself a powerplay goal before getting himself booted for a hit from behind for the second straight game…. Brodyn Nielsen scored his first as a Chief…….. Trevor Hills quietly finished with three points……. Luke Esposito’s three assists has him back in the league scoring lead……..The penalty kill was perfect…. Mitch Gillam calmly made 31 saves for his second shutout this season.

Other Things:

– Prince George had a few chances in tight, but the Chiefs did a reasonable job keeping the Spruce Kings to the outside. P.G. outshot the Chiefs 31-29 in this game, but it didn’t feel that way.

– Liam McCloud started the game for Prince George, but left in the second period after a David Thompson shot caught him in….uh…well….below the waist. It was painful to watch, and you certainly felt bad for McCloud. Kirk Thompson came in to finish the game.

– Nice to see Brodyn Nielsen get one. He’s been working real hard as of late. A nice pass from Trevor Hills to set him up, as well.

– Austin Plevy scored on the Chiefs first shot, and Ben Israel’s power play goal was the first shot that Thompson saw after coming on in relief.

– Plevy’s second goal was absurd. After the puck was drawn forward off the faceoff outside the Prince George line, Plevy plowed his way forward, made a move to the outside on his off wing, and went with a backhand deke in tight to beat Thompson.

– Chilliwack only brought ten forwards on this trip to begin with. Jaret Babych had his clock cleaned in a fight with Kevin Guiltinan, and left halfway through the first period. Tanner Cochrane got the gate for the second consecutive game, and the Chiefs finished the game with eight warm bodies up front. Cooper Rush played a little forward late in the game.

– Fatigue might be an issue in the later stages of Friday’s game, but at least the Chiefs can bring in some AP’s for Sunday’s home match against Trail.

– For what it’s worth, the Chiefs are the BCHL’s best going into Friday’s play.
