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.

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

He's a strong kid. He's a competitive kid, and certainly not afraid to go into the corners. He's got the skating ability to escape and help us execute in certain situations, but he's got that competitive nature that's a huge part of it too, especially against a team like this.
