Nanaimo Wins 5th Straight

After giving up 2 goals in a 32-second span midway through the 3rd period, Nanaimo needed a little extra time to continue their winning streak. Brendan Mason scored the OT winner on a powerplay at 5:45, helping the Clippers to a 5-0 record. Joe Devin scored his first goal of the season, and also as a BCHLer. to give the Clippers a 4-2 lead over Langley early in the 3rd. The Chiefs began their quick game-tying burst on a powerplay at 11:27, and then pulled even at 11:59. Joe's goal was his only point of the night, while brother Mike picked up one penalty in an otherwise quiet night.

Nanaimo is now one of 5 unbeaten teams remaining in the BCHL. Pencticon is 6-0, Salmon Arm joins Nanaimo at 5-0, Victoria is 3-0, and Burnaby is 2-0. Burnaby hosts Victoria tonight, and then hosts Nanaimo on Sunday.
