Chiefs at Seattle as season winds down

The Spokane Chiefs have just four regular-season games remaining and will hit the road to take on the Seattle Thunderbirds on Tuesday night. They'll play all four games in five nights this week, and though they're locked into a first-round matchup with the Vancouver Giants, home-ice advantage is still up for grabs.

The Chiefs are coming off a win over Kootenay on Saturday - but prior to that lost to Tri-City and fell to Kelowna in a shootout.

In case you missed it last week, here's our feature on ironman Steve Kuhn - who is on the verge of setting an unprecedented streak for Spokane. 

Also: Defenseman Davis Vandane will miss the next two games after the league suspended him for his accumulation of kneeing penalties.

Chiefs grind out win over Seattle

Here's a touch of irony for you. The Spokane Chiefs beat the Seattle Thunderbirds 7-3 on Monday night, and as you'll see in the game story, it wasn't the prettiest game. But the ugliest play of the night, well, that belongs to me. At the bottom of the article, you may or may not notice an error. I'm just going to call it out here, because I noticed and it bothers me. Anyway, in the Ice Chips, Dominik Uher's four goals came in a 5-3 win at Seattle, not Kamloops. Uher had the lone goal in a 4-1 loss to Kamloops. What a rookie mistake. I'm ashamed.

Also, if you didn't get a chance today, you can read my feature on Mac Engel and … Mac Engel right here. You'll see what I mean.

Chiefs have serious case of the Monday’s in loss to Seattle

There’s really nothing gentle about hockey – and that includes honest feedback when a lackluster performance is turned in.

Two days after scoring an impressive victory over the Western Hockey League’s top team, the Spokane Chiefs went scoreless on six power-play opportunities and gave up a shorthanded goal late in the third period in a 3-2 loss to the Seattle Thunderbirds in front of 4,243 fans on Monday afternoon at the Arena.

Read on for the rest of my unedited game story…

Chiefs win second straight

Mitch Holmberg scored two goals and Dominik Uher added two assists in the Spokane Chiefs' 4-2 Western Hockey League victory over Seattle in their first game this season against the Thunderbirds. New Chief Todd Fiddler scored in his second straight game, and defensemen Brenden Kichton and Corbin Baldwin were plus-3 in the game.

Spokane's next three games are against the Everett Silvertips - tomorrow and Friday (Jan. 13) in Everett and Wednesday (Jan. 11) in Spokane.

With the trade deadline quickly approaching, any thoughts on possible moves?

Spokane skater finding niche with Seattle

The Spokane Chiefs start the second half of the Western Hockey League season in a couple of days with a home-and-home series with the Seattle Thunderbirds. We took the opportunity to get to know Spokane native Tyler Alos, a second-year center with the T-birds who sees his role explanding. Included are a bunch of notes that point out how hot the Chiefs were heading into the Christmas break, getting their with a milestone win for coach Don Nachbaur and goalie James Reid.
