KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops Blazers were shutout 3-0 by the Kelowna Rockets in their last home game of 2017.

Penalties were costly to the Blazers.

Kole Lind opened the scoring for the Rockets with a power-play goal midway through the first period.


It stayed 1-0 until midway through the second when Kelowna on its second 5-against-3 power play scored on Linds second of the game.

Just over two minutes later Lind completes his hattrick with his 20th of the season.

That would be all the scoring.

Dylan Ferguson stopped 28 of 31 shots, while James Porter put in another solid effort against Kamloops with 28 saves for his second shutout of the season.

On Wednesday night the 17-year old from Bonners Ferry, Idaho made 46 saves in the Rockets 2-1 shootout win over the Blazers.

Kelowna finished this game going 2-for-8 on the power play, while Kamloops was 0-for-3 ---- shutout on home ice for a second consecutive game, going back to a 4-0 loss to Kootenay December 3.

The Blazers now travel to Everett to play the Silvertips tomorrow night before returning home to face the Victoria Royals at the Sandman Centre in a New Years Day 2 pm matinee.

Blazers lose 4th in a row, fall to Everett
