KELOWNA, B.C. - Dylen McKinlay scored twice and set up two more as the Kelowna Rockets downed the visiting Tri-City Americans 6-3 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Madison Bowey had a goal and an assist for the Rockets (31-10-2), who extended their win streak to eight games, while Riley Stadel, Rourke Chartier and Ryan Olsen each scored once.

Connor Rankin, Michal Plutner and Beau McCue scored for the Americans (23-16-3).

Jordon Cooke made 26 saves for the victory as Luke Lee-Knight turned aside 24 shots in a losing cause.

Kelowna went 1 for 3 on the power play while Tri-City failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
