The Aldergrove Kodiaks offence is in fine form as the Pacific International Junior Hockey League regular season hits the stretch drive.

The junior B hockey club pumped 19 goals past the opposing goaltenders as the Kodiaks picked up a pair of key victories to open up a four-point lead atop the division standings.

Aldergrove downed the North Delta Devils 8-5 on Wednesday at the Aldergrove Arena and then went on the road to thump the Mission Icebreakers 11-4 on Thursday at the Mission Leisure Centre.

In the first game, the Kodiaks used a five-goal second period to take control.

Alex Feighan scored twice, while Thomas Hardy, Robert Jang, Colton Precourt, Jordan Pughe and Ryan Procyshyn had the others.

Ross Baadsvik made 48 saves for the win as Aldergrove was outshot 53-36.

Against the Icebreakers, the game was tied at one with a dozen minutes gone, but Aldergrove exploded for seven unanswered goals over the next 17 minutes.

Hardy had a six-point night, including a hat trick, while Feighan had two goals and two assists.

Brandon Potomak also had two goals and an assist and Ryan Veillet chipped in with four helpers.

Colton Precourt (one goal, two assists), Scott McHaffie (one goal, one assist) and Samuel Ramsay and Matthew Luongo each had a goal.

Brenden Sharp stopped 32 shots for the win.

Eight games remain in the regular season and the Kodiaks (25-9-1-1) lead the Abbotsford Pilots (23-11-2-0) by four points for first place in the Harold Brittain Conference.

The Kodiaks host Mission on Feb. 8 at the Aldergrove Arena.
