After a split against the Kamloops Blazers over the weekend, the Kelowna Rockets are back in action on Tuesday night.

On Feb. 13, the Rockets welcome the Spokane Chiefs to town, who are 5-4-0-1 in their last 10 games.

This is a big game this late in the season as Spokane is just six points behind the Rockets in the Western Conference. The Rockets sit in seventh place with a record of 24-25-3-0 while the Chiefs are 20-24-4-1.

The last stretch has been difficult for the Rockets, who are 3-6-1-0 in that span.

These two teams last met on Feb. 5 in a high-scoring affair, with the Rockets winning 8-5.

Going into tonight’s contest, Rockets forward and Washington Capitals prospect Andrew Cristall is one goal away from 100 career goals in the WHL.

Puck drop is at 7:05 p.m. at Prospera Place.
