Pavel Kousal scored two goals, including the game winner early in the second period, as the Spokane Chiefs scored a 3-2 win over the Kamloops Blazers Wednesday night in Kamloops, B.C. The win snapped a 7 game losing streak against the Blazers over a 3 season period for Spokane.

Spokane’s Ondrej Najman scored his second goal of the season just 48 seconds into the game to give the Chiefs a 1-0 lead. Koby Morisseau got his first career assist and Taylor Ross also got an assist on the Najman goal. Kousal would notch his first of the night with a power play tally midway through the first to put the Chiefs ahead 2-0. Kamloops would cut the lead in half at 2-1 at the end of the first with a goal late in the period.

Kousal would score his second of the night on assists from Keanu Yamamoto and Jaret Anderson-Dolan early in the second to give the Chiefs a 3-1 lead. The Blazers would pull within 3-2 on a Garret Pilon goal midway through the second as the two teams were even with 21 shot apiece after two. Neither team would get on the board in the third, as Spokane out shot Kamloops 7-6 and went a perfect 4-4 on the penalty kill in the game.

The win keeps the Chiefs tied with Portland for 4th place in the U.S. Division with 23 points, one point back of third place Seattle. Spokane will return home to open a four-game home stand on Friday when they host the Vancouver Giants. Mike Boyle will have the call on 1510 KGA starting with the pre-game show at 6:30pm and the puck drop at 7:05pm. Tickets are available online at ticketswest.com or spokanechiefs.com.
