Chiefs Return To Action, Crush The Ice

Posted:
CRANBROOK, B.C. -- The Spokane Chiefs road the wave of a four-goal second period to crush the Kootenay Ice 6-4 on Friday, Dec. 27, as the two Western Hockey League teams returned to action at Western Financial Place following the holiday break. 

Right wing Jackson Playfair scored twice in the second, book ending goals by Blair Oneschuk and Riley Whittingham and giving the Chiefs the 5-3 lead going into the locker rooms when he sent in his second goal with only three seconds left in the period. 

Spokane's captain Reid Gow returned to action after missing multiple games before the break with an upper body injury and tallied his 34th assist of the season on Mike Aviani's opening goal. Mitch Holmberg also had an assist on the play for his WHL leading 75th point.

Whittingham added another goal for Spokane just under 13 minutes into the third period to buoy the lead. Even though the Ice would score later in the frame the Chiefs couldn't be caught.

Both teams will meet up again tomorrow night at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena at 7:05 p.m. PST. It will be Coeur d'Alene Casino Buck Night where select food items will be offered for only one dollar.
