Hard as it may to believe by what transpired at the Arena Tuesday night, the Spokane Chiefs lost to the Prince George Cougars earlier this season.

Granted it was a 2-1 overtime game in PG the second game of the Western Hockey League season but it was a loss – one of just five the Cougars have administered this season.

About the only thing the Cougars accomplished in this meeting – a dull 3-0 Chiefs victory – was to take the announced crowd of 3,645 out of the game, which is what happens the opposition provides very little resistance.

Michael Tadjdeh had 25 routine saves in handing PG its fourth shutout of the season.
