Rockets Earn Three of Four Points on Weekend

Could they be turning the corner? Road trip up north up next

The Kelowna Rockets suffered a 3-2 overtime loss in Vancouver on Saturday night in Western Hockey League action, playing its second overtime game in as many days.

Marek Tvrdon scored the winning goal 56 seconds into overtime to give Vancouver a 3-2 win over Kelowna.

The Rockets earn a point for the overtime loss with its record moving to 6-11-2-1.

Assistant coach Ryan Cuthbert said despite the loss it was a good game for the Rockets.

“It was a real good road game for us,” Cuthbert said on the AM 1150 post game show. “Guys seem to be buying into the idea that we have to play a tighter style of game and the last two to three games they’ve

been doing that.”

Brett Bulmer and Colton Sissons scored for the Rockets while Jordon Cooke earned his second straight start, facing 22 Vancouver shots.

Brendan Gallagher and Neil Manning scored for the Giants.

The Rockets earned three out of a possible four points on the weekend with Friday night’s shootout win and the overtime loss on Saturday.

“Our guys are doing the right things more consistently now,” said Cuthbert. “If guys stick with it things will turn and we’ll start getting the results that we want.”

The Rockets now head up to Prince George for a pair of games in Prince George before returning to Prospera Place on Nov. 23.
