In a playoff preview, the Langley Rivermen used some late-game dramatics to earn a single point in their BCHL regular season finale.
Jordan Schneider scored with one second to play on Tuesday night as the Langley Rivermen rallied to tie the Wenatchee Wild 4-4.
The game was played at the Toyota Town Center.
Langley finished the regular season with a record of 31-23-3-2 and 67 points, good for third place in the Mainland Division.
They will face the second-place Wild (33-15-4-4, 74 points) in a best-of-seven playoff series beginning March 5.
Langley went 1-2-1-2 in six head-to-head games with Wenatchee.
Langley had a great start in Tuesday’s game with Zac Masson and Ryan Barrow striking in the first 3:26 for a quick 2-0 lead. But the Wild’s Matthew Baker and Brendan Harris pulled the home side even after 20 minutes.
Baker made it 3-2 with the lone goal of the second period and Blake Christensen extended the lead to 4-2 early in the third.
Max Kaufman pulled the Rivermen within a goal before Schneider struck. The tying goal came with Langley down a man.
Nick Trenciansky made 47 saves — including 10 saves in the overtime period.
The Rivermen also had three games last week, beating Prince George and Coquitlam by identical 5-1 scores in road victories on Feb. 18 and 20, and then losing their home finale 4-0 to Victoria on Feb. 21.
With the regular season in the books, Matthew Graham finished as the team’s leading scorer with 24 goals and 66 points in 57 games. Graham and Justin Fregona finished tied for the team lead with 24 goals
