Jacob Pang had a 3 point night to extend his point streak to 5 games and collected the game-winning-goal in a 5-4 nail biter against the Glacier Kings Thursday night. The old adage “The worst lead in hockey is the two goal lead.” held very true. The Cougars became complacent a few times. After going up 3-1 in the 2nd period after Pang scored his 1st of 2 goals the G Kings slammed home 2 goals in just over 2 minutes, including their 12th shorthanded goal of the season. They almost did it again in the 3rd period. The Cougars went up 5-3 and the Kings came back to make it 5-4. If the game were a few minutes longer they could have likely tied it up again.
After the Cougars went up 3-1 they seemed to fall back on their heels thinking they can win easy. This late in the season they cannot let up, especially against a team they haven’t played at all this season. Comox is a really good team that is building momentum to their playoff battle versus Oceanside.
Parker Jorginson grabbed his 4th of the year and 1st against the Cougars. After being traded to Comox by way of the Predators. The towering D-man was fantastic for his new club.
Aiden Turner also finished with 3 points on the night for the Cougars. Brody Johnston extended his point streak to 5 games and collected his 8th multipoint game of the season.
The Cougars face Saanich tomorrow night and Comox again to round out the season on February 19th.
