Rockets win seventh straight with 6-4 win over Chilliwack

Now heading to PG for two road games this weekend

The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Chilliwack Bruins 6-4 Wednesday night at Prospera Place in Kelowna, extending its winning streak to seven games.

The Rockets scored four times in the second period to erase a 2-1 deficit and cruised to the win in the third period.

Evan Bloodoff scored twice to lead the offensive attack while Geordie Wudrick added to his team-leading goal total with his 30th of the season. Cody Chikie, Zak Stebner and Colton Sissons, into an empty net, also scored for Kelowna. Tyson Barrie had three assists and Adam Brown earned the win in net.

The win moves Kelowna 10 games above .500 at 30-20-0-0. The Rockets remain a point behind Vancouver in the race for first in the WHL BC division after the Giants 5-4 win over Lethbridge in a shootout.

Roman Horak scored twice for the Bruins and Mike Forsythe had the other Chilliwack marker.

The Rockets now head out on the road for a pair of games in Prince George against the Cougars this weekend. Kelowna and Prince George play Friday and Saturday nights in PG.

The Rockets next home game is Friday Feb. 11 when they begin a home and home series with Chilliwack.
