Yeah, definitely rough. I know there's lots of hockey left to be played, but I think Portland sealed up the Conference with those two games.

Kamloops is creeping up on Kelowna, the game on the 15th will be a big one. Should be good

Rockets Bounce Back with Win in Everett
February 11, 2013


Kelowna travels to Everett and snaps three game losing skid with 3-2 win over Silvertips

Feb. 10, 2013 - Kelowna, BC
The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Everett Silvertips 3-2 on Sunday night in Everett, snapping a three game losing skid with the win.

Jackson Whistle made 27 saves in the win as the Rockets jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Everett scored twice to make the score 3-2 after two periods.

Colton Sissons, Ryan Olsen and JT Barnett scored for the Rockets, who shrugged off two weekend losses to Portland, bussed to Everett and picked up two points on the road.

The Rockets are in first place in the WHL BC Division and return to Prospera Place for home games this Thursday and Saturday, hosting Everett on Thursday before two games against the Kamloops Blazers including Saturday night in Kelowna.

Good to see the team back to their winning ways , hopefully we can do to the blazers , what portland did to us.

Well Kelowna split with Portland in a back to back in Portland earlier this season. And we were in the first game but seemed to take the 2nd game off here in Kelowna. It'd be an interesting playoff series but Kelowna would need to be a little better obviously to have a chance.

Pretty sure we've had to do a 3-in-3 involving Kelowna earlier this year, while they only did the back to back. Just the way the schedule works. It'll be a damn good weekend of hockey though, Kelowna always plays us tough and vice versa.

Rockets Come Back for 3-2 Win in Kamloops
March 8, 2013

Kelowna solidifies hold on 1st in WHL BC Division with gritty win over Kamloops

March 8, 2013 - Kelowna, BC
The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Kamloops Blazers 3-2 in Kamloops on Friday night, extending its lead to five points over the Blazers in the race for first place in the WHL BC Division with just over a week to go in the regular season.
After falling behind 2-0, the Rockets scored three straight goals, including the winner from rookie Cole Linaker midway through the third period, to earn the hard fought win.
Check the game summary here
Jordon Cooke earned the win in net, stopping 35 of 37 Kamloops shots in a first-star performance for the Rockets.
"We got off to a rough start but we played our game, found a way to get back into it and win it in the third period," said Cooke on Shaw TV's post game show. "It was huge right now for us. It's two good teams chasing after the division title. Whenever we can get two points against Kamloops, it's good."
Myles Bell and Tyson Baillie also scored for the Rockets who now have four games remaining in the season including Saturday night in Kelowna in the second half of the home and home series with Kamloops.
The win moved the Rockets five points ahead of Kamloops in the race for the BC Division title with the Rockets holding a game in hand as well.
"I'm so proud of the guys," said Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert on the AM1150 post game show. "A lot of good things happened to a lot of our players tonight. You look at Cole Linaker scoring the winning goal. He and Rourke Chartier are two young guys who had huge games for us."
The Rockets and Blazers meet Saturday at Prospera Place and tickets are available for the game.

Blazers came very, very close to tying this one. Bozon got a backdoor pass late in the game, looked at a wide open net but the puck bounced off his stick. Rockets played a good game last night, got a little lucky if I do say so, but definitely looked good. Enjoy the division, hopefully we'll see ya in the playoffs. What a series that would be!!!!

Watched the Rockets destroy the Royals (Victoria, where I'm from while I'm not away at school) near the end of February in back to back games!
Hilarious going to my home arena and cheering for the Rockets but I've been a fan ever since Jamie Benn was there ( I used to practice with his team while he was in Midget and I was in Peewee).
