Chiefs improve to 2-0 with second rout

Sometimes repetition can make people feel as if they're in a rut. But the Spokane Chiefs' brand of repetition for the young 2013-14 Western Hockey League season is anything but oppressive -- unless the view is from Spokane's opponent. The Chiefs registered their second consecutive 6-2 victory on Tuesday, strolling past host Victoria and moving to 2-0 behind the leadership of Mitch Holmberg. The Chiefs 20-year-old had two goals and one assist to go with the three goals and one assist he scored Saturday night against the Tri-City Americans. Read story

Defenseman Jeremy McIntosh's goal was the second of his career. He scored once last season in 65 games.

The Chiefs are 5-0 all time in Victoria.

Chiefs goaltender Eric Williams stopped 26 of 28 shots and a first-period penalty shot by Logan Fisher.

The game grew rough in the final 8:44, with five penalties by Victoria and three by Spokane.

The Chiefs also started last season 2-0.
