Lipon with four points as the Blazers down the Hitmen 5-2

CALGARY - JC Lipon continued his hot hand for the Kamloops Blazers with two goals and two assists in a 5-2 win over the host Calgary Hitmen on Sunday in Western Hockey League play.

Lipon is currently riding a six-game point streak that includes nine goals and 18 points. He now has 22 points in nine games this season to lead the WHL in scoring.

The game was a battle of the only two WHL teams which had yet to suffer a regulation-time loss this season.

Colin Smith also had two goals and added an assist for Kamloops (8-0-1), while Aspen Sterzer added a single goal.

Marek Hrbas also chipped in two assists for the Blazers.

Brady Brassart and Cody Sylvester scored for the Hitmen (6-1-2), whose winning streak was halted at three games.

Kamloops goaltender Cole Cheveldave made 13 saves to improve his record to 6-0-0 this season, while Calgary netminder Chris Driedger stopped 26 shots in a losing cause.

The Blazers were successful with the man advantage as they went 5-for-9. Calgary went 2-for-4 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
