Chiefs return home with tough assignment

The Spokane Chiefs have played just one home game in the last 17 days, but their Western Hockey League schedule becomes much more favorable for the rest of the month. The Chiefs will play eight of their next nine games at the Arena, starting with Wednesday's big game with Kelowna. The Rockets have been the top-ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League Top 10 poll for six consecutive weeks, although their position could change when the new poll is released before Wednesday's game. The reason is that Kelowna has lost four of its last eight games, including a Jan. 29 shootout loss to the Chiefs, who are 2-0 against Kelowna this season. Spokane's other upcoming home games are Saturday against Tri-City; Sunday against Everett; Feb. 19 against Prince Albert; Feb. 22 against Kootenay; Feb. 23 against Kamloops; Feb. 28 against Portland; and March 1 against Tri-City. The Chiefs are 6-1-0-1 against Tri-City this season but 0-7 against Portland. Everett has lost 17 consecutive games at the Arena since March 2010. Read story
