Powell River Kings experienced a case of déjà vu on Saturday, October 5.
For the second time in six days, the BC Hockey League club travelled to Nanaimo for a game against the Clippers and left town without scoring a goal.
Clippers’ goaltender Jordan Naylor stole the show again, stopping 26 shots for his second shutout against the Kings this season by an identical score of 3-0. Matteo Paler-Chow made 33 saves in the loss, the fifth in eight games for the Kings since their last home game on September 15.
Nanaimo moved to within one point of Powell River for second place in Island Division standings. The Clippers also have two games in hand on the Kings.
Attendance at Frank Crane Arena was 1,492.
Powell River plays an afternoon game in Victoria on Sunday, October 6, to complete nine straight games away from home. The team's next home game is Friday, October 11, against Penticton. Game time at Hap Parker Arena is 7 pm.
Kings host Island Division-leading Cowichan Valley Capitals the following evening; puck drop is scheduled for 5 pm.
