Todd Fiddler scores twice in Spokane Chiefs 6-1 rout of Prince George Cougars

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Todd Fiddler scored twice, including a short-handed goal, as the Spokane Chiefs handled the Prince George Cougars 6-1 on Tuesday in Western Hockey League play.

Mitch Holmberg had a goal and two assists for Spokane (9-3-0), while Tyler King, Collin Valcourt and Dylan Walchuk rounded out the scoring. Eric Williams earned the win with 24 saves.

Troy Bourke was the lone scorer for Prince George (5-7-1). Mac Engel stopped 17 shots for the Cougars.

The Chiefs went 1-for-2 on the power play, while Prince George was 1-for-4.

Bourke's first period power-play goal gave the Cougars the lead 12:19 into the first period.

Spokane then reeled off six unanswered goals, including five in the third period, to rout Prince George.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
