Hughson blanks Blazers

Spokane Chiefs backup goaltender Garret Hughson completed a successful weekend by shutting out the Kamloops Blazers 2-0 at the Arena on Saturday night. Read story

Hughson thanked the defense in front of him.

“That's probably one of the games I'll remember most, one of the top ones so far I've played,” he said. “The guys really played well in front of me and they're starting to get back to the game that they had before.”

Eric Williams shut out Kelowna 5-0 on Feb. 6. Before that, the Chiefs hadn't had a shutout since Dec. 28 at Kootenay.

The Chiefs improved their home record to 21-9-1-0.

Kamloops and Spokane split four regular-season games this year. The home time won every time. Until Saturday, each game had been won by three goals or more.

Fiddler picked up two points to tie Brenden Kichton for the team lead at 70 points. Mitch Holmberg is one point behind.

Fiddler's 39 goals are tied for fifth in the league, five behind leader Brendan Leipsic of Portland.

“I don't concentrate on that,” Fiddler said. “If I think about it too much, I don't think I'll score as much, but I guess it's going good for me.”
