Faddenâ€™s goal and point streak ended at 9 games thanks to Wright and Vancouver. This was a battle of the Westâ€™s two top teams and what seems to be a Conference Finals preview. Chet Pickard is still out for TC after being run over in the Spokane game last weekend. The Americans used two goalies this game. Evander Kane was First Star for the Giants, notching 2 goals (43, 44).
Spokane Chiefs 1 @ Kelowna Rockets 4
G Dustin Tokarski, SPO: Loss, 21 saves on 25 shots
Season totals: 49 GP, 31-16-0-2, 1.98 GAA, .936 sv%, 7 shutouts
Jamie Benn (Dallas) scored his 40th and 41st goals of the year to beat Tokarski and Spokane. Tokarski has taken the loss in 5 of his last 7 games, and has given up at least 4 goals three times in that span. He had only allowed 4 in a game twice before February. Kelowna is now just one point behind Spokane for the third seed in the West.
