SPOKANE, Wash. - Blake Gal scored two goals and set up one more as the Spokane Chiefs doubled up the visiting Kootenay Ice 6-3 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Brenden Kichton and Alessio Bertaggia each had a goal and two assists for the Chiefs (41-25-2) while Mitch Holmberg had a goal and an assist.

Jason Fram scored once to round out Spokane's offence.

Jaedon Descheneau scored two goals and added an assist for the Ice (33-33-2), who are winless in three games, and Brock Montgomery scored the other.

Eric Williams made 27 saves for the win as Mackenzie Skapski turned aside 35 shots in defeat.

Spokane went 1 for 3 on the power play while Kootenay scored once on two chances with the man advantage.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
