Reid, Johnson set records in win

The Spokane Chiefs rolled at Chilliwack Tuesday night, smacking the Bruins 6-1, in a record-breaking romp.

I'll get to the records in a moment. The Chiefs have won three straight since a 6-2 loss at Kootenay last Friday, which they avenged with an 11-2 romp over the Ice Saturday in the outdoor game. Now the teams collide Friday indoors at the Arena - you don't suppose the Ice will be hot.

 The Chiefs last lost at the Arena on Dec. 15, in OT. The last time they lost in regulation at home Oct. 23, 4-2 to Red Deer.

Goalie James Reid set the franchise record with his 78th win, one more than Dustin Tokarski. He is second in the league in goals against average at 2.42. His 28 wins are tied for the league lead.

Tyler Johnson picked up two assists to establish a career high for points with 72. His six-game streak with a goal ended, but his point streak is now 11 games. He has 22 points in those games to stay in second in the league scoring race. His league-leading 34 goals is still two shy of the career high he set last season.

Brady Brassart had two goals, as did Levko Koper, who has at more than  20 for the third straight season. Brenden Kichton had four assists and is now a whopping plus-38, which leads the league and also leads in points aong defensemen with 46 points.

(A quick interruption of the Chilliwack break down: With so many known mess-ups in the box from the outdoor game on Saturday I completely missed that Anthony Bardaro had five assists against Kootenay.)
