Cody Fowlie scores twice as Rockets snap Blazers' 14-game winning streak

KELOWNA, B.C. - Cody Fowlie scored twice as the Kelowna Rockets beat Kamloops 3-0 to snap the Blazers' 14-game winning streak in Western Hockey League action Thursday.

Tyrell Goulbourne also scored for Kelowna (9-6-2), which handed Kamloops its first regulation-time loss of the season.

Rockets goaltender Jordon Cooke stopped 19 shots for his second shutout of the season.

Kelowna hadn't played since Sunday and was the fresher of the two clubs, especially in the third period when Fowlie scored both of his goals.

Cole Cheveldave made 23 stops for the Blazers (16-1-1), who were playing their fifth game in seven days.

The loss was also Kamloops' first shutout defeat of the season. The Blazers' last loss was 4-3 in a shootout to Victoria on Sept. 28.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
