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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
