Linden Makow, Kilian McGregor-Bennett and Kai Greaves all had three point nights. Jack Stockfish had 2 assists. Aidan Feddema won his second straight start making 33 saves on 37 shots. Prince George went 2 for 5 on the powerplay and their PK killed off 3 of 5 West K powerplays.
Today’s Game: This is the second game of a brief two game road trip before PG returns home for two against Salmon Arm next weekend.
