Kevin Sundher scored the last two goals of the game, the second 3:20 into overtime, to rally the Chilliwack Bruins to a 4-3 win over the Spokane Chiefs Wednesday night at the Arena.
The Bruins shocked the 4,737 fans by rallying from a 3-0 deficit entering the third period. Lucas Gore made 54 saves for Chilliwack.
The Western Hockey League playoff series is now 2-1 for Spokane with Game 4 tonight and Game 5 Saturday at the Arena.
We also have a Colin Mulvany slideshow from the game - the picture above is when Tyler Stahl sent Tyler Johnson to the ice late in the second period. Stahl received a game misconduct, Johnson sat out the third period and is questionable for tonight's game.
3 stars: 3, Anthony Bardaro, Spokane; 2, Lucas Gore, Chilliwack; 1, Kevin Sundher.
