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.

However, the Blazers had to go down to the wire to break the mark. Chase Souto scored on a scramble out front with 5:21 remaining in regulation to knot it at 2-2.

Elsewhere in the WHL, it was: Raiders 2 Broncos 1 (SO); Blades 3 Pats 2; Chiefs 8 Thunderbirds 2; and Giants 4 Hurricanes 3 (SO).

At Everett, Wash., JC Lipon also scored and Cole Cheveldave made 20 saves in goal for the Blazers (16-0-1), who have yet to lose in regulation this season.

Ryan Harrison and Carson Stadnyk scored for Everett (6-8-2).

Austin Lotz made 26 saves in net for the Silvertips.

Raiders 2 Broncos 1 (SO)

At Prince Albert, Sask.,Leon Draisaitl scored in the shootout and in regulation as the Raiders (10-4-2) defeated the Swift Current Broncos (6-8-4).


Blades 3 Pats 2

At Regina, Josh Nicholls scored twice to help the Saskatoon Blades (6-9-0) edge the host Pats (6-10-1).


Chiefs 8 Thunderbirds 2

At Spokane, Wash., Mike Aviani had two goals and two assists as the Chiefs (11-5-0) routed the Seattle Thunderbirds (7-6-1).


Giants 4 Hurricanes 3 (SO)

At Lethbridge, Alta., Nathan Burns scored in regulation and the only goal in a shootout as the Vancouver Giants (4-10-0) edged the Hurricanes (8-7-2).

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
