Blazers Blank Cougars
Kamloops, B.C.- Not a pretty game for the Prince George Cougars as they were out shot and outscored by the Kamloops Blazers last evening in Kamloops.
The final score was 3- nothing for the Blazers, and that was good enough to tighten up the battle for the division title. The Cougars now just have a 2 point lead on the Blazers in the standings.
Collin Shirley was first to score for Kamloops with Nick Chyzowski getting the assist in the first period.
The second goal was scored in the second period by Rudolfs Balcers and Garrett Pilon put the puck in the net for Kamloops third goal in the third period.
All three goals were scored with teams at full strength.
The Cougars had the man advantage twice in the game, but failed to capitalize. The Blazers had the man advantage 4 times, but the Cougars penalty kill kept them from scoring.
The Cougars had just 28 shots on goal, while the Blazers had 42.
The Cougars return to the CN Centre where they will host Red Deer on Tuesday night.
