Kodiaks win streak snapped at 10

The Aldergrove Kodiaks find themselves in unfamiliar territory: coming off of a loss.

The junior B hockey club saw its 10-game win streak snapped on Saturday night as they dropped a 4-1 decision to the host North Vancouver Wolf Pack at the Harry Jerome Rec Centre.

Prior to that, Aldergrove had stretched its streak to 10 games with a 2-0 victory last Wednesday (Jan. 9) against the Grandview Steelers, the Kodiaks’ second-straight shutout win.

And Aldergrove was 20 minutes away from making it 11 straight as the team took a 1-0 lead after 40 minutes thanks to a power-play goal from Daniel Higgs.

But the Wolf Pack scored three times in the first 3:43 of the third period and the Kodiaks had no answer. North Van also added a goal in the final minute.

Goaltender Mark Menicucci saw his shutout streak end at 169:23.

The Kodiaks had not lost a game since Nov. 28 and their run has put them comfortably in second-place in the Harold Brittain Conference with 41 points, 13 points ahead of third place.

The team is nine back of the division lead with a game in hand.

Aldergrove will look to find the win column when they host the Port Moody Panthers tomorrow (Jan. 16) at the Aldergrove Arena. Game time is 7:15 p.m.
