Clippers Rebound

Nanaimo returned home and defeated Vernon, 4-2, on Saturday to take a 3-2 lead in their best-of-seven series. Michael Garman was named the game's 2nd-Star as he stopped 17 shots and picked up an assist on Erick Belanger's (Ohis State) goal into an empty net that sealed the game. Mike Devin assisted on the Clippers' second goal, scored by Joe Bitz, which tied the game in the second period.

Joe Devin did not play.

The second period continues to vex Nanaimo in the series. Eight of the last ten goals scored by Vernon, over a four-game stretch, have been in the middle period.

The home team has won every game in the series thus far. Game six is in Vernon on Monday.
