Well, this is interesting, they have somewhat of a hill to climb, but they can't let that get to them, they have to keep working!

Plenty of hockey left.

I just want to point out I'm not worried at all yet and this is why: Rockets always drop the first two games to American teams (Tricities in 2004 and 2009, Seattle in 2005, Everett in 2010...yet they always win those series).

If Kamloops can force a Game 7 last year against Portland, Kelowna can do it this year against Seattle. Also Kelowna already beat them 4 in a row this year in the regular season - no reason they can't do it again now. Gotta believe!

Rockets Win to Bring Series Back to Kelowna
March 27, 2013


4-0 win makes the series 3-1 Seattle with game 5 Saturday in Kelowna


Share

March 27, 2013 - Kent, WA
The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Seattle Thunderbirds 4-0 on Wednesday night in Kent, WA, staving off elimination and forcing a game five Saturday in Kelowna in the Posted ImageWHL Western Conference quarterfinal series that Seattle now leads 3-1.
Tyson Baillie led the attack, scoring twice and adding an assist as the Rockets jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period. Myles Bell also scored and added an assist in the first. Zach Franko added a goal and two assists as the Rockets outshot Posted ImageSeattle 37-25.
Game Summary
The Rockets power play struck three times, all in the first period while its penalty killers kept Seattle to an 0-for-8 night.
"I thought it was very important for our power play to step up," said Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert on the AM1150 post game show. "The power play did that and that put them on their heels. I thought that was the difference early in the game. And I really felt that we out-worked them."
Jordon Cooke earned the win in net as he turned aside 25 Seattle shots to earn his first WHL shutout.
The win came after the Rockets dropped the first three games of the series to Seattle, all of them in overtime.
Posted Image"I thought it was a big character test for us: You lose and you go home and that's certainly not what this hockey team wants to do," said Lambert. "In saying that we need to keep playing the way we started to tonight. We are going home and hopefully the fans will come out and cheer them on. That next game is do or die again."
Game five is set for Saturday night in Kelowna and tickets for the game go on sale at 9:30 a.m





C,mon Rockets , if we can win game 5 at home and force game 6 back at their rink ?
