Chiefs rally for OT win at Regina

Spokane's dominance of the Western Hockey League's East Division continuted on Saturday night, with a couple of new twists. Tyler King had his first winning goal of the season to lift the Chiefs to a 6-5 overtime win at Regina, Saskatchewan. Fourth-liners Riley Whittingham and Tyson Predinchuk had their first multipoint games of the season, assisting on the Chiefs' fourth goal and tying goal. Predinchuk did so in front of his hometown crowd. The Chiefs, two games into their six-game eastern swing, are 8-0 against the East Division the last two years. Read story

The Chiefs now take Sunday and Monday off before perhaps the most interesting stop on their tour, Tuesday at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

Not only is Prince Albert playing the best hockey in the East Division, but the Raiders and Chiefs worked a big trade last December that has paid big dividends for the Chiefs. Spokane sent Anthony Bardaro, its leading scorer at the time, to Prince Albert for goalie Eric Williams and left winger Todd Fiddler.

Fiddler, who has been on a tear, is tied for second in the Western Hockey League with 21 goals. Williams' record is 15-5-1-0. Bardaro, meanwhile, has eight goals and 12 assists for the Raiders.
