PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Mike Aviani had a four-point night as the Spokane Chiefs cruised past the Prince Albert Raiders 7-4 in Western Hockey League action Tuesday.

Aviani scored three times and added an assists for the Chiefs (20-7-1), who had three unanswered goals in the final minutes of the third period to beat Prince George.

Liam Stewart, Collin Valcourt, Connor Chartier and Todd Fiddler also scored for Spokane.

Dakota Conroy had two goals for the Raiders (20-9-2), while Reid Gardiner and Austin Daae added singles.

Chiefs goaltender Eric Williams made 24 saves, while at the other end Luke Siemens stopped 21 shots.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version stated the team was from Prince George.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
