The Kelowna Rockets were in action on Friday, this time taking on the BC Division-leading Kamloops Blazers.
With both teams battling for the division crown, Kelowna snuck away with a massive 2-1 win. Talyn Boyko made 30 saves on 31 shots to escape with his 21st win of the year.
Neither team got on the board in the first period, though the second frame was a different story. Kamloops got on the board first thanks to Reese Belton's 10th of the year.
After that, Rockets' captain Tyson Feist scored back-to-back goals to win it for Kelowna. The Rockets outshot Kamloops 35 to 31 on the night.
With the win, Kelowna improves to 30-12-1-3. They are still eight points behind the Blazers who sit at 35-14-2-0.
The two teams are back in action again Saturday. Puck drop at the Sandman Centre is at 7 pm.
