Chiefs’ winning streak reaches three

Liam Stewart cashed in with his second consecutive winning goal Wednesday during the Spokane Chiefs' 4-1 Western Hockey League win over the Seattle Thunderbirds at the Arena. Read story

Stewart has 10 goals this season, four shy of how many he scored last season.

“As long as I get more than last year and keep on progressing every year I'm here,” Stewart said. “As long as the team is winning, I'm happy. It's not about the points. It's about how you play as a team.”

Stewart knew, of course, that he'd scored winning goals on consecutive nights, but he didn't know his goal previous to those two had also been a winner.

“It felt good to get the game-winner and to help my team out, but it doesn't happen unless I have my … team working with me,” he said.

Coach Nachbaur, just back from assisting with Canada's team at the World Juniors, has set to work to get the Chiefs back to where they were from early November to early December, when they won 11 of 13.

“There are lots of parts of our game that have to be corrected,” he said. … “Two things you hang your hat on in hockey are how hard to work and how hard you compete. I think we've lacked both of those and those are building blocks.

“Hopefully, the guys are receptive to learning and we have adjustments to make, no question.”
