In back to back nights, the Rockets played two of the best teams in the western conference of the WHL. The Rockets fell 2-0 to the Vancouver Giants Saturday night.
The Rockets kept pace with the B.C. division leaders, and had their chances with six power-plays, but Giants goalie David Tendeck played well stopping all 22 Kelowna shots, while having help as the Rockets put three well-placed shots off the post.
Kelowna faced a tough challenge taking on the Giants only a night after a tight 3-1 loss to Everett.
Rockets drop another close game. Lose 2-0 to Vancouver Giants. Lots of positives from back to back games this weekend vs top 10 CHL teams, says coach Foote. #WHL @Kelowna_Rockets pic.twitter.com/1Z8GDDNCa0
