Rockets sweep weekend from Prince George

Kelowna runs win streak to seven with 20th victory of season Saturday

The Kelowna Rockets won their seventh straight game, defeating the Cougars 6-2 on Saturday night in WHL action at the CN Centre in Prince George.

Tomas Soustal and Tyrell Goulbourne broke out for two goals apiece while Jesse Lees and Rourke Chartier each added single markers. Chartier’s goal marked his league leading 24th of the year and at same time it extended his goal streak to 10 straight games.

Rockets forward Tyson Baillie also continued his impressive offensive surge since his return from the Subway Super Series. After scoring two goals Friday, Baillie played the role of set-up man on Saturday night, picking up three helpers.

Jake Morrissey had a busy night in the Kelowna goal stopping 34 pucks for his second win of the year.

Kelowna is now 20-1-1-0 and heads to Victoria with a 3-0-0-0 record on their current 5 game road swing.

They will finish up the trip with back to back games on Tuesday and Wednesday against the Royals before returning home next Friday and Saturday to play host to the Portland Winterhawks.
