Chiefs in Prince George for pair of games against Cougars

I saw a couple tweets from Spokane Chiefs players yesterday afternoon as they were rolling into Prince George, British Columbia, after an 18-hour bus ride that covered nearly 700 miles. I got to thinking - I've never been to Prince George. I wish part of my job was traveling to cover the road games - no matter what the distance. But with papers the way they are now, here's the response I would get if I were to suggest such a thing: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Pause for effect. Followed by more laughter. A beat writer can dream.

I have been to some away games to watch Spokane (during the 2007-08 season I visited Lethbridge (twice), Calgary, Medicine Hat, Everett, Vancouver, Tri-City, and of course Kitchener, Ontario). But Prince George - I've never been there. Good thing there are google angels watching over me. There's more below.

Chiefs prove to be too charitable

 It was a night for charity and the Spokane Chiefs were most obliging. After producing a record number of stuff toys on Teddy Bear toss night, the Chiefs coughed up a 3-0 lead to the Prince George Cougars and lost 4-3 in a shootout.

stars: 3, Bourke, PG; 2, Fram, Spo; 1, Carlson, PG.

Chiefs fall to PG at home

 Rookie defenseman Linden Springer’s first goal of the season early in the third period lift the Prince George Cougars to a 5-4 win over the Spokane Chiefs on Saturday night.

Now the Chiefs head out for a six-game road trip, five against the Central Division, and they're 0-7 on the road. 

Stars: 3, Blake Gal. 2, Jesse Forsberg (PG). 1, Charles Inglis (PG).
