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.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
