Nolan Reid scored a pair of third-period goals, and the Spokane Chiefs rallied to defeat the Kootenay Ice 5-4 Saturday in Cranbrook, British Columbia.

The Chiefs (10-7-1-2, 23 points) outshot the Ice (8-11-1-0, 17) 22-5 in the opening period, but couldn’t get past Kurtis Chapman, who finished with 34 saves.

Cameron Hausinger tallied late in the first and doubled Kootenay’s lead four minutes into second.

Spokane responded with two short-handed goals a minute apart from Jaret Anderson-Dolan and Hudson Elynuik to tie, and Zach Fischer put the visitors in front before Ryan Pouliot leveled the game entering the third.

Reid scored his first goal on a power play and then netted the winner from the point with nine minutes left.

Alec Baer brought the hosts within one with under two minutes remaining, but Spokane killed off a power play to end to game and hang on.

Dawson Weatherill made 23 saves for the Chiefs, who went 2-0 on the weekend road trip.

Elynuik finished with four assists and a career-high five points and Anderson-Dolan tallied two helpers.
