Kodiak Nolan Wallinger scored in the first period to leave the Kodiaks down 2-1 at the start of the second.

A similar result in the second, with a goal from Kodiak Elvis Jansons on a power play left the Kodiaks down 4-2 at the start of the third.

The Outlaws scored the third period’s only goal for a total of 5-2 for the visitors.

Kodiaks’ assists came from Maximilian Fritz and Wyatt Versluis, and Jamieson Ree and Jordan Funk, respectively.

The Kodiaks outshot the Outlaws 40-24 but the Outlaws were the shooters who found the back of the net. Keeper Ben Giesbrecht stopped 10 of 15 shots and was pulled in favor of backup Griffin Baillie, who stopped all nine shots in the last 16 minutes of the game.

Wallinger was named third star, while Outlaw Bryce Pisiak was first for his three goals and David McGowan was second star for his three assists.

The Outlaws were unable to score on three power plays while the Kodiaks scored on one of five.

The Kodiaks have the rest of the week off until they host the Abbotsford Pilots on Wednesday, Nov. 26 at Aldergrove Arena, puck drop at 7:15 p.m.

The Kodiaks then have two away games, Nov. 28 versus Ridge Meadows Flames, and Nov. 29 versus Mission City Outlaws.
