Kodiaks’ point streak reaches 20

Aldergrove finally tastes defeat, but still pick up point, extending streak to 20 games (17-0-1-2)

The Aldergrove Kodiaks epic win streak finally came to an end, but they have still picked up at least a single point in 20 straight games.

The junior B hockey club won two of three games last week to improve to a league-best 23-4-1-2 and 49 points in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.

The Kodiaks had to rally from a 3-0 deficit to defeat the Abbotsford Pilots 5-4 in overtime on Dec. 18 at the Aldergrove Arena.

Elvis Jansons scored the overtime winner.

A big turning point in the game was goals by Jeremy Lagler and Quinncy Leroux, who scored 24 seconds apart — and less than a minute after the Pilots went ahead 3-0.

Kenny Prato and Leroux had the other goals.

And their 12-game winning streak came to an end in the next game as the host Ridge Meadows Flames scored the 3-2 overtime victory at Maple Ridge’s Planet Ice on Dec. 20.

Aldergrove found itself down 2-0 with 12 minutes to play but Adam Callegari and Jansons scored power-play goals three minutes apart to force overtime.

But Jake Holland scored an unassisted goal 3:07 into double overtime to hand the Kodiaks their first defeat since Oct. 12, more than two months ago.

Aldergrove did bounce back in their final game before the holiday break, with a 5-2 win over the Delta Ice Hawks at the Ladner Leisure Centre on Dec. 21.

Jansons, Spencer Unger, Kenny Prato, Aaron Markin and Stephen Ryan all tallied in the game with three of the goals coming with the man advantage.
