Mike Betz wins his first game as a Chief in the shootout. DAY-4 JHN-5 (SO) Betz made 27 saves on 31 shots faced before winning in the penalty shots. Brett Peterson and Jean Desrochers each had a goal and an assist in the game. Betz defeated goaltender David Currie who, you'll remember, started the season in Johnstown before being dealt to the Victoria Salmon Kings after Morgan Cey returned from his early season groin injury.

So perhaps now perhaps Coleman will have the upper hand going into next weekend? NOR-5 SPR-2 Jonathan Boutin stopped just 17 of 22 shots faced in the loss. Darren Reid scored his fifth goal of the season to trigger a failed Falcons comeback from 3-0 down.
