Kodiaks douse Flames, but fall to Wolf Pack

One night after snuffing out the Ridge Meadows Flames 8-0, the Aldergrove Kodiaks fell 5-1 to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack.

It was just the team's second regulation time loss in the past 26 games (21-2-1-2) as they continue to lead the Pacific Junior Hockey League with 59 points.

Aldergrove sits with a record of 28-6-1-2 with seven games to go in the junior B regular season.

Stephen Ryan led the way against the Flames with two goals and two assists, while  line-mate Adam Callegari had three helpers in the 8-0 rout of Ridge Meadows on Jan. 17 at Maple Ridge's Planet Ice.

Elvis Jansonns and Spencer Unger both scored a pair of goals and Spencer McHaffie and Jonathan Philley had the others.

McHaffie also had the overtime winner the game before, a 3-2 come-from-behind overtime win over the Wolf Pack on Jan. 15 at the Aldergrove Arena.

Against the Flames, the Aldergrove power play was lethal, scoring four goals on 13 chances in the completely one-sided game. Goaltender Jordan Liem only had to make 11 saves to earn the shutout as the shots were 50-11.

But the next night at the Harry Jerome Rec Centre in North Vancouver, it was the Wolf Pack's turn to use a potent power play to fuel a victory.

The hosts scored three power-play goals — all in the third period — to win 5-1.

Ryan had the lone goal for Aldergrove, his league-leading 35th.

The Wolf Pack got goals from five different players as Spencer Quon, Mitchell Crisanti, Marcus Houck, Trevor Maclean and Otis Goldman all found the back of the net.

The Kodiaks will try and get back in the win column when they host the Port Moody Panthers on Jan. 22 at the Aldergrove Arena.
