Jordan Pughe's goal early in the third period stood up as the winner as the Aldergrove Kodiaks doubled the North Vancouver Wolf Pack 4-2  in junior B Pacific International Junior Hockey League play on Wednesday at the Aldergrove Arena.

Pughe scored 31 seconds into the final period to give the Kodiaks a 3-1 lead. And that goal turned out to be huge as 36 seconds later, the Wolf Pack's Jason Hawkins pulled the visitors to within a goal.

But that would be the only puck to elude Ross Baadsvik over the final 20 minutes as North Vancouver fired 19 shots at the Kodiaks goaltender in the period. The Wolf Pack outshot Aldergrove 46-36 overall.

Pughe added an empty net goal, his third of the night, to seal the victory.

Robert Jang had the other Kodiaks goal on a second period power play.

Stephen Bell had North Vancouver's first goal.

The victory improved Aldergrove to 16-6-1-1 and stretched their lead to five points over the Abbotsford Pilots atop the Harold Brittain Conference.

The Pilots visit Aldergrove for a game on Dec. 14.
