KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Payton Lee allowed the game's first shot to get past him, but then stopped the next 33, as the Vancouver Giants knocked off the host Kamloops Blazers 4-1 on Sunday in Western Hockey League play.
Aspen Sterzer scoring six seconds into the game for Kamloops, but it was all Vancouver after that.
Carter Popoff and Brett Kulak scored before the first period finished for the Giants (4-9-2) while Jackson Houck and Tim Traber struck in the second period.
Bolton Pouliot stopped 43 shots for the Blazers (4-10-1), who dropped their fourth straight game.
Vancouver went 1 for 7 on the power play while Kamloops failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
