Chiefs rally to beat Brandon

For the second straight home game, the internet at the Arena kicked me off - and didn't let me back on - right at the end of a Spokane Chiefs victory. At least Saturday I got the blog done before I was stifled.

But, better late than never, Steven Kuhn set up Dominik Uher for an easy tap-in with 3:42 to play to give the Chiefs a 4-3 win over the Brandon Wheat Kings in a game they trailed 3-1 at the midway point.

3 stars: 3, Brandon's Stone, 2, Spokane's Kramer, 1, Uher.
