Penticton Vees shut down Powell River Kings’ offence

Interior Division leaders earn 27th win of BC Hockey League season

Penticton Vees were stingy hosts on Friday, December 20, shutting out Powell River Kings 4-0 while only allowing 19 shots in a BC Hockey game at South Okanagan Events Centre.

Vees took a lead they would never relinquish just 24 seconds into the game. The Interior Division leaders added an insurance marker at 7:03 of the second period and scored twice more in the third en route to their 27th win in 38 games this season.

Kings' goaltender Derek Krall made 29 saves against his former team. Attendance was 2,814.

The loss, the second in three contests for Powell River on a four-game road trip, allowed Alberni Valley to move into a third-place tie with the Kings in Island Division standings. Alberni defeated Wenatchee 5-2 the same evening to join Powell River with 38 points. Nanaimo leads the division with 51 points, followed by Cowichan Valley with 48. Victoria is in last place with 28 points.

Powell River’s road trip concludes tonight in Wenatchee against the Wild, who are currently tied for fourth place in the seven-team Interior Division.

Kings return to Hap Parker Arena to close out the 2019 portion of their schedule by hosting Nanaimo Clippers for a pair of games on Monday, December 30 (7 pm), and Tuesday, December 31 (5 pm).
