After seeing their five-game win streak come to an end, the Aldergrove Kodiaks needed overtime to get back into the win column.

The junior B hockey team bounced back from a 5-3 loss to the Mission City Outlaws on Oct. 2 with a 4-3 overtime win over the Ridge Meadows Flames on Oct. 4 at Maple Ridge’s Planet Ice.

The Kodiaks were up 3-1 after one period against the Flames before Ridge Meadows scored a power-play goal late in the second and then a short-handed marker early in the third to force overtime.

But in the extra session, it was Elvis Jansons striking at 2:31 to get the Kodiaks the extra point.

Scott McHaffie, Jacob Dunlop and Stephen Ryan had the other Aldergrove goals.

Cole MacInnes stopped 22 shots for the win.

In the Kodiaks’ other game last week, they led 3-2 late in the second period but Mission City tied it prior to intermission and then notched two goals early in the third for the 5-3 victory.

Joshua Cronin, Adam Callegari and Roshen Jaswal had the Kodiak scores.

Aldergrove leads the PJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference with a 6-2-0-0 record.
