PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Patrik Polivka stopped all 30 shots he faced as the Victoria Royals blanked the host Prince George Cougars 2-0 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

Jamie Crooks and Austin Carroll each scored for the Royals (14-12-1) while Alex Gogolev assisted on both goals.

Mac Engel turned aside 26-of-28 shots in a losing cause for the Cougars (9-13-4), who have dropped back-to-back outings.

Victoria went 1-for-5 on the power play while Prince George failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
