Williams 29 saves as Chiefs shutout Ice

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Eric Williams stopped all 29 shots he faced as the Spokane Chiefs blanked the host Kootenay Ice 1-0 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

With his second shutout of the season, the 19-year-old goaltender improved his record to 18-8-1.

Todd Fiddler scored at 18:18 of the second period for the Chiefs (24-10-1), who won for the first time in three outings.

Mackenzie Skapski stopped 24-of-25 shots in a losing cause for the Ice (10-24-1), who are now winless in four games.

Spokane went 0 for 2 on the power play while Kootenay 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.
