The Aldergrove Kodiaks exploded offensively as they thumped the Ridge Meadows Flames 9-2 in junior B Pacific International Junior Hockey League action on Wednesday night at the Aldergrove Arena.

Robert Jang and Stephen Ryan had two goals apiece in the blowout while Thomas Hardy had a goal and three assists.

Ross Baadsvik made 33 saves in the win.

The Flames led 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes before the Aldergrove offence got on track in the second.

Matthew Luongo, Ryan Veillet and Jang scored for the Kodiaks, before the Flames’ Dean Gilmore cut the lead to 3-2.

But Jang’s second of the night, on the power play, restored the Kodiaks’ two-goal advantage.

The third period was all Aldergrove as they peppered the Flames net with 23 shots and scored five more times.

Ryan had two, while Colton Precourt, Hardy and Jordan Pughe all found the back of the net.

Ryan Procyshyn had three assists, while Precourt, Veillet and Luongo all had a goal and two assists.

Brendan Gulka also finished with a pair of assists and Colby Rosner had one assist.

Thye Kodiaks outshot the Flames 49-35 that night.

Precourt, Hardy and Veillet were awarded the game’s first, second and third stars, respectively.

The win puts the Kodiaks at the top of the Harold Brittain conference with four points, and Hardy, Precourt and Veillet are the league’s top scoring leaders with 9, 7 and 5, respectively. Baadsvik is also a goalie leader with a 2.00 GAA.

The Kodiaks will look to push their winning streak to three games on Oct. 5 (Wednesday) when they host the Grandview Steelers. Game time is 7:15 p.m. at the Aldergrove Arena.
