The Chilliwack Bruins defeated the Kelowna Rockets 1-0 Friday night at Prospera Place, snapping the Rockets four game winning streak.

Bruins netminder Lucas Gore stopped all 29 shots he faced, recording the shutout for the Bruins.

After a scoreless first period the Bruins opened the scoring at 6:46 of the second period. Jamie Crooks jumped on a loose puck in the Kelowna end and fired a quick wrist shot from the bottom of the circle, beating Kelowna starter Adam Brown for the only goal of the game.

Kelowna netminder Adam Brown kept the Bruins at bay, stopping 29 of 30 shots, but the offense could never get on track.

Despite the lack of goals  both clubs had their chances. The Rockets had several great scoring chances. Evan Bloodoff was stopped on a short-handed breakaway in the third while Colton Sissons shovelled a puck just wide after a scramble in close.

Neither power play was able to strike. The Rockets were 0-for-5 while the Bruins were 0-for-3.

Kelowna’s Jessey Astles and Chilliwack’s Curt Gogol entertained the crowd with a spirited scrap in the first period.

The loss drops the Rockets record to 37-26-0-1. They still sit in first place, four points ahead of the idle Vancouver Giants who now have a game in hand on Kelowna.

The Rockets are back in action Saturday night at Prospera Place as they take on the Lethbridge Hurricanes
