KENT, Wash. - Brandon Glover made 37 saves as the Seattle Thunderbirds doubled up the visiting Kelowna Rockets 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Brendan Rouse, Shea Theodore, Seth Swenson and Roberts Lipsbergs each scored for the Thunderbirds (13-13-1) while Justin Hickman and Connor Sanvido had two assists apiece.

Myles Bell had a goal and an assist for the Rockets (17-9-2), who had their five-game winning streak halted, and Rourke Chartier scored the other.

Jackson Whistle turned away 27-of-31 shots in a losing cause.

Seattle went 1 for 2 on the power play while Kelowna failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
