SPOKANE, Wash. - Dylan Walchuk scored the winning goal with just 24 seconds remaining in the third period as the Spokane Chiefs edged the visiting Prince George Cougars 3-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Tyler King and Mike Aviani had a goal and assist each for the Chiefs (7-3-0) and both goals came on the power play.

Jari Erricson and Colin Jacobs scored for the Cougars (5-5-1), who have dropped four straight contests.

Garret Hughson made 14 saves for the win as Mac Engel, the much busier of the two goaltenders, stopped 35 shots in a losing cause.

Spokane went 2-for-5 on the power play while Prince George went 2-for-6.

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.
