Weather patterns were reveresed on the second night of the new decade as a howling blizzard started near Victoria and roared into Cook Inlet. It raced through downtown Anchorage and reached its peak right over Sullivan Arena. Until a warm wind blew in from the Aleutian Islands near the end of the game, the Aces were floundering, with the Salmon Kings swamping them with six unanswered goals. Two goals for the Anchorage team at the end made it a 6-2 final for the Salmon Kings. Randall Gelech led Victoria with two goals, and Patrick Coloumbe, Mike Hamilton, and Olivier Latendresse each had double assists. Wes Goldie reached a milestone with his 150th goal in the colours of the Victoria Salmon Kings. David Shantz was named the first star, Chad Painchaud 2nd, and Randall Gelech 3rd. Many National Conference locations would have found a star for the home team, but on this night the selectors in Anchorage showed knowledge and objectivity in their selections. In the first period, the Salmon Kings had an amazing shot advantage of 12 to 1, and ended up scoring 6 goals on 15 shots. Thus the streak continues now at eleven wins in a row. IT PLAYED IN PEORIA..former Aces coach Davis Payne,who went on to run the AHL Peoria Rivermen was just selected to replace Andy Murray as bench boss of the St. Louis Blues. That makes him a member of a select few who have coached at all levels of an organization. Ironically, his first game was a loss to Chicago, by an almost identical score as the Aces loss, 6-3. His successor in Alaska, Keith McCambridge joined the Manitoba Moose as an assistant coach. THREE STAR LEADERS AT HOME...Salmon Kings leaders as selected at SOFMC. FIRST Star, a tie with three apiece to Wes Goldie and Olvier Latendresse.SECOND Star..with two, Glenn Fisher. THIRD Star, with two Chad Painchaud. ROAD STARS...FIRST Star, with two, David Shantz.
