SPOKANE, Wash. - Ondrej Roman netted two power-play goals on Saturday night as the Spokane Chiefs snapped the Kelowna Rockets' three-game winning streak with a 2-1 WHL victory.

Spokane quickly went to work in the first. Kelowna's Tyler Myers was called for elbowing and James McEwan for tripping to set the Chiefs up for a 5-on-3 power play.

The Chiefs' Mitch Wahl popped the puck out the Judd Blackwater, who dished a short pass to an open Roman on the right side of the net. Roman slapped it in quick to put Spokane on the board first at two minutes, five seconds.

The Rockets blasted back in the second when Colin Long's shot tipped of a Chiefs' stick and slid past Spokane goalie Dustin Tokarski, who finished with 23 saves in front of a Spokane Arena crowd of 5,442.

Roman scored the game-winner with five minutes remaining in regulation from just inside the blue-line.
