Tonight’s Program with head to head numbers

– For the Chiefs, it’s about not being discouraged going into Saturday night’s game. They really did enough to win Game 1, but when the playoffs come around, you’re going to encounter a hot goaltender, and Kirk Thompson certainly was that in the first game Friday night. Chilliwack came out with great energy on Friday, and they’ll have to do the same tonight – perhaps that same fire will produce a goal or two early, and relieve some of the pressure.

– I’m sure Prince George would like to get to Mitch Gillam a little more than they did in Game 1. The Chiefs did a fine job keeping pucks to the outside. The first Spruce Kings goal was on a power play, and the other was a great individual effort by Coltyn Hansen. PG didn’t blow anybody away with quality scoring chances on Friday, and the Chiefs will have to limit them again.

– I’m also sure the Spruce Kings don’t want to take their chances in allowing 44 shots again. Chilliwack, despite their efforts, couldn’t finish on Friday, and at this time of year you’ve got to bury those opportunities. The missed open net from Luke Esposito towards the end of the second period with the game still 1-0 really stuck out last night. There were others as well, but that was a big one. Don’t get discouraged, and bear down.

– Kirk Thompson has now flat out stole two games at Prospera Centre this year, but he can be beat by this Chilliwack group – I’ve seen them do it. Remember this game?


January 23rd. Chiefs 6, Spruce Kings 2. Four goals in the first period alone. Kirk Thompson in goal. And check out that first Chiefs’ tally – that was a bounce! Chilliwack had exactly one bounce in game one – and it came with three seconds left in the game.

That can’t happen again, can it?

Kirk Thompson can’t be Batman between the pipes again, can he?


Sports are great. I think the Chiefs will even the series tonight, and take some momentum up north.

See ya there.
