Last Game: The Spruce Kings defeated the West Kelowna Warriors Friday night by a 7-4 score.  John Herrington led the way offensively with 3 goals and 1 assist.  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.  The offense bounced back in a major way after being blanked on Saturday.  Playoff seeding is still paramount as the Spruce Kings sit just a few points out of third and fourth place.
