WHL Roundup: A look at Tuesday's games

Colin Smith helped his team reach extraordinary new heights.

The Kamloops centre scored the only goal in a shootout and the Blazers won their 14th straight, 3-2 over the Everett Silvertips on Tuesday night in the Western Hockey League.

The win streak sets a new franchise record for the Blazers. Kamloops won 13 straight games in both the 1986-87 and 1989-90 season.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
