The Kodiaks came out on top of a penalty strewn game Friday night at the Abbotsford Pilots with a 3-2 win.

The penalties were decidedly lopsided with the Kodiaks getting two goals on nine power plays while the Pilots scored once on three power plays.

The Pilots’ Matthew Genovese opened the scoring in the first period on a power play at 1:53 but the Kodiaks took the lead early in the second with one from Thomas Hardy at 1:16, assisted by Matthew Luongo and Taylor Christopher, followed by a power play at 4:46 by Ryan Veillet, assisted by Robert Jang and Colby Rosner.

The Pilots evened it up early in the third with a short-handed goal by Luke Venema, however, the Pilots were the only team in the penalty box in the third, including three game misconducts, and that cost them.

The Kodiaks scored on another power play at 15:17 by Rosner, assisted by Veillet and Colton Precourt.

The Pilots outshot the Kodiaks 34-24 that night but Ross Baadsvik earned the game’s third star for stopping 32 of those shots. Pilots’ Kevin Lourens and Travis Grewal earned the first and second stars, respectively.

The Kodiaks host the Pilots at Aldergrove Arena, Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7:15 p.m.
