Zach Pochiro ties game, scores in shootout as Cougars stun Raiders 6-5

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Zach Pochiro scored in regulation and again in the shootout as the Prince George Cougars edged the Prince Albert Raiders 6-5 in the lone Western Hockey League game Monday.

Pochiro forced extra time with the tying goal at 19:44 in the third period before scoring the only goal of the shootout.

Todd Fiddler had a pair of goals for the Cougars (19-26-7), with Marc McNulty and Troy Bourke adding singles.

Josh Morrissey, Dakota Conroy, Jayden Hart, Chance Braid and Darcy Zaharichuk had a goal apiece for the Raiders (23-23-3).

Prince George goaltender Ty Edmonds turned aside 30 shots, while at the other end of the ice Nick McBride did what he could with 42 saves.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
