Macek with three points as the Hitmen end the Rockets' winning streak

CALGARY - Brooks Macek scored twice and added an assist as the Calgary Hitmen downed the visiting Kelowna Rockets 6-2 on Sunday in Western Hockey League play.

Brady Brassart and Cody Sylvester each had a goal and an assist for the Hitmen (23-7-4) and Jake Virtanen and Elliott Peterson had a goal apiece.

Jesse Lees and Madison Bowey scored for the Rockets (23-10-2), who had their six-game winning streak halted.

Chris Driedger stopped 22 shots for the win as Jackson Whistle made 16 saves for Kelowna before leaving after the second period because of a leg injury he suffered midway through that period. Back-up goaltender Jake Morrissey, a 15-year-old affiliated player from the Calgary Royals AAA Midgets, played the third and stopped 7-of-10 shots in relief.

Calgary went 1 for 7 on the power play while Kelowna went 1 for 6.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
