The rockets have a goal differential of +62 and the winterhawks have a goal differential of +84 , which is more goals than they have had scored against them , that is pretty impressive.

Veteran D-man Chapman Out for Season

Jan. 8, 2013 - Kelowna, BC
Kelowna Rockets president and general manager Bruce Hamilton has announced that 20-year-old Rockets defenceman Mitchell Chapman has been placed on injured reserve for the rest of the Western Hockey League season.
Chapman has been out with a high ankle sprain since suffering the injury on the first day of the Rockets 2012-13 training camp, an injury that did not heal as expected.
"It was decided by our medical team today that Mitchell is likely going to need surgery," said Hamilton. "It's a huge blow for our organization, losing a player like that. He's been with us for three full years and missing his 20-year-old season is a tough break for him."
Chapman, a 6-foot-3 225 pound defender, joined the Rockets in the 2009-10 season. He played 165 regular season games and a further 18 in the playoffs.

Rockets own the Royals tonight 6-1. Combined with Kamloops loss the Rockets take over sole possession of 1st in the division. After the Blazers 17 game unbeaten streak to start the season this task seemed almost impossible.

Yeah the big hurdle is Portland. How can anyone beat them in a 7 game series? Though if any team can do it I think its Kelowna. What happens when two teams meet up one both on huge winning streaks with the best stats in the WHL? Someone has to win. Could easily go both ways imo.

Jan. 16, 2013 - Kelowna, BC
The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Spokane Chiefs 5-3 on Wednesday night at Prospera Place in Kelowna, extending its home winning streak to 18.
Five different Rockets scored in the win, including Rockets captain Colton Sissons, who had a goal and an assist.
View the game summary here
Ryan Olsen, Rourke Chartier, Tyrell Goulbourne and Zach Franko also scored for Kelowna, who led 4-0 in the third before the Chiefs scored three straight goals to make it close late in the game. Franko's empty netter though sealed the victory.
"I thought we played a very good game for two periods, our forwards in particular," said Rockets coach Ryan Huska on the AM 1150 post game show. "We got ourselves in trouble in the third. Three mistakes led to three goals and we have to learn from that. But I liked the way we played in the first two periods."
The 18 straight wins ties a Kelowna club record set in 2002-03. The Rockets franchise record is 24, set in 1992-93 by the Tacoma Rockets.
"I think our players should be very proud," said Huska. "They have put themselves in some terrific company with that team from 02-03. It's something that has been important in our room and our guys should be proud."
Check out Kelowna Rockets photos from the game here
Alessio Bertaggia scored twice for the Chiefs while Jordon Cooke earned the win in net, his 16th straight win.
The Rockets and Chiefs will battle again on Friday in Spokane as the two teams complete a home and home set.
Kelowna's next home game is Saturday against the Vancouver Giants.
