Kelowna wins fourth straight: 6-2 over Kamloops

Home games coming Friday and Saturday after Kelowna wins four of five on the road

The Kelowna Rockets scored four times in the second period en route to a 6-2 win over the Kamloops Blazers Wednesday night in Kamloops, extending it winning streak to four games.

Evan Bloodoff scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season while midget call-up Tyrell Goulbourne scored his first ever Western Hockey League goal in the victory as the Rockets closed out a five game road stretch with four straight wins.

Geordie Wudrick opened the scoring for Kelowna with his team leading 37th of the season while Cody Chikie and Mitchell Callahan also scored. Adam Brown earned the win in net, stopping 25 of 27 shots.

The win improved the Rockets record to 37-25-0-1 and extended their lead atop the WHL BC division to four games over idle Vancouver.

The Rockets return to Prospera Place in Kelowna this weekend with two home games. Kelowna will host Chilliwack on Friday and Lethbridge on Saturday.
