Prince George, B.C. – The Prince George Cougars return home from their four-game road trip to Alberta with six of a possible eight points, a three-game winning streak and first place overall in the Western Hockey League.

Hot on the heels of their Friday night victory which saw them overcome a four goal, thirdCOUGARS3 period deficit to score a 6-5 shootout victory over Lethbridge, the Cougars closed out the road trip with a 5-4 victory over the Calgary Hitmen at the Saddledome Saturday night.

Jansen Harkins led the way with a 2-goal night, Radovan Bondra had two assists to go with the game-winning goal he scored at the 17:24 mark of the third period, and singles were scored by Josh Maser and Brad Morrison.  The Cougars led 2-1 after one period, trailed 3-2 after 40 minutes and then outscored the Hitmen 3 to 1 with three straight goals in the third for the victory.

Netminder Ty Edmonds had an outstanding night, making 47 saves as the Hitmen outshot Prince George 51-29 before 6607 fans.

The Cougars went 0 for 3 on the power play while the Hitmen were 1 for 5.

The Prince George Cougars are now 31-12-2-0 on the season, good for first place in the WHL with 64 points.

Riding that three-game winning streak the next action for the Cougars comes Tuesday and Wednesday at CN Centre as they host the Portland Winterhawks, who have a 22-19-1-0 record, good for 45 points.


Was a fun game to watch on TV, and the Cougars played pretty well for being short a few regular players and battling the flu.

Looking forward to the games this week against Portland, and then the big one Friday against Moose Jaw!

GO CATS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
