PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Dana Tyrell had four points to lead the Prince George Cougars to a 6-1 win over the Red Deer Rebels in a Remembrance Day matinee on Tuesday.
Tyrell, a Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick and a prospect for the national junior team, set up goals by Cameron Cepek, Brett Connolly and Parker Stanfield before scoring his third short-handed goal of the season. The Cougars led 2-0 after the first period and 4-0 after 40 minutes.
Connolly, a 16-year-old who now has 12 goals and 26 points, scored a spectacular one-handed short-handed goal, getting up off his knees after he was brought down on a partial break, to make it 5-0 Prince George.
Cullen Morin scored a power-play goal for the Rebels in the third period, and Tyler Halliday connected in the final minute for the Cougars.
The win was just the third win in 15 outings for the Cougars (9-12-0-1), who are 7-2-0-1 at home. The Rebels (7-13-0-5) are 2-9-0-4 in road games.
Kevin Armstrong stopped 33 shots to post his eighth win of the season for the Cougars. Darcy Kuemper faced 20 shots in the Red Deer nets before being replaced by Morgan Clark, who stopped six of seven shots.
