Marek Tvrdon's two goals help Vancouver Giants double Kootenay Ice 6-3

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Marek Tvrdon scored twice and added two assists in the Vancouver Giants' 6-3 victory over the Kootenay Ice in Western Hockey League on Saturday.

Anthony Ast, Kale Kessy, Jackson Houck and Mason Geertsen also scored for the Giants (5-11-0), who scored four unanswered goals to take the lead for good.

Kyle O'Connor, Jon Martin and Sam Reinhart each scored for the Ice (4-10-1).

Payton Lee made 21 saves in net for the Giants, while Wyatt Hoflin and Mackenzie Skapski combined to stop 22 shots.

Tvrdon gave Vancouver the lead 10:05 into the first period.

Martin tied the game for Kootenay just 1:40 into the second with a short-handed goal, but from there it was all Vancouver.

Ast, Kessy and Houck each scored in the second and Tvrdon added his second goal just over a minute into the third to give Vancouver a 5-1 lead.

O'Connor and Reinhart scored for the Ice, but Geertsen's goal in the final minute of the game put the result beyond doubt.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
