Holmberg with three points as the Chiefs double up the Ice

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mitch Holmberg scored two goals and assisted on one more as the Spokane Chiefs doubled up the visiting Kootenay Ice 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Brenden Kichton had a goal and two assists for the Chiefs (28-14-1) while Dylan Walchuk added a single goal.

Luke Philp and Jaedon Descheneau scored for the Ice (17-25-1), who had their seven-game win streak halted.

Eric Williams made 25 saves for the win as Mackenzie Skapski turned aside 31 shots in a losing cause.

Only three minor penalties were handed out all game. Spokane went 1 for 1 on the power play while Kootenay failed to earn any chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
