It was the third consecutive loss for the Kodiaks in four season games. The Kodiaks nearly matched the Pilots for shots on goal, 35-38, but simply couldn’t find the back of the net on 33 of those shots, despite the advantage of 11 power plays.

The Pilots scored on two of eight power plays, including one in the first frame’s only score at 17:49.

The Pilots scored their second power play early in the second, before Kodiak MacLean Hewitt finally got one at 16:33. However, the Pilots scored another at 18:32 before the Kodiaks scored their final that night at 18:46, with a goal by Spencer McHaffie assisted by his twin brother Scott.

The Pilots scored two more in the third, including a shorthanded empty-netter at 18:54, to end the game at 5-2.

The results leaves the Kodiaks at the bottom of the league with two points, alongside Ridge Meadows Flames and Port Moody Black Panthers.
