Clippers Capture Caps

Nanaimo bounced back from an overtime loss in game five to defeat Cowichan Valley, 5-1, on Wednesday to capture the Coastal Conference Championship. Joe and Mike Devin assisted on Tyler Pistone's game-winning goal at 8:03 in the 2nd period. Michael Garman stopped 32 shots and was named the game's 2nd-Star.

Nanaimo will face Vernon in the BCHL Championship, which begins on Sunday in Nanaimo. Vernon's playoff run has been led by Hunter Bishop, who left North Dakota earlier this year, and Nick Olynyk, who's been fantastic in goal. Olynyk has 2 straight shutouts and hasn't given up a goal in nine of the last ten periods of play.
