Rockets Win in OT in Everett to Salvage Weekend

Kelowna now heads into a Wednesday tilt in Vancouver with first place on the line

Zak Stebner scored at 2:22 of overtime to lift the Kelowna Rockets to a 3-2 win over Everett, closing their three game weekend with a win at the Comcast Arena in Everett, Washington.

It was Stebner’s second goal of the game and improved the Rockets record to 31-23-0-1. The win also moved Kelowna two points behind the idle Vancouver Giants in the race for first place in the WHL BC division.

Max Adolph also scored for Kelowna who had lost back to back games against Chilliwack heading into the game.

Jordan Cooke earned his sixth win of the season in net, facing 35 Everett stops.

Trailing the Giants by two points and still with one game in hand, Kelowna and Vancouver will play twice this week. The Rockets will travel to Vancouver for a Wednesday night game before playing the Giants at home on Saturday. Kelowna will also host Spokane on Friday night.

Rockets players will also be appearing for a Family Skate on Monday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Prospera Place. Admission is a recyclable plastic container for Bankhead Elementary School’s Outdoor Esteem field trip.
