The Prince George Spruce Kings spent Remembrance Day down at the city hall taking in the ceremony. Honouring the lost, the Spruce Kings are looking to get over some tough losses from last weekend.
First it was a 6-2 loss to Powell River where Prince George had tied the game at two, but then allowed two quick goals to go down by a pair, and the Kings scored twice more in the third to seal the deal. That was the first meeting for the first meeting between the two teams since Chad van Diemen started in Prince George after spending the last six years in Powell River.
The next night was a closer game, with the Bulldogs scoring 12 seconds into overtime to end extra time early. It was a good game for the veterans, as Bryan Basilico, Braiden Epp, and Jake LeBrun all scored.
Sunday afternoon another to forget, as the Spruce Kings started the 2nd period with a goal in the first minutes, and the in the third they allowed two goals in the first 1:20. That would trail off into a 7-3 loss.
With the Coquitlam Express losing their two games over the weekend, the Spruce Kings lost a golden opportunity to gain some ground on the team they’re chasing for a playoff spot. Currently the Express sit five points ahead of the Spruce Kings.
This weekend the Spruce Kings are back on the road, and have their first venture to Wenatchee. So far the Wild lead the season series 3-1, but the Spruce Kings took the most recent game in a thrilling 3-2 win at The Coliseum. After Wenatchee, Prince George will take on Chilliwack Saturday night for their first meeting of the season, and finally the Surrey Eagles who the Spruce Kings lost to 4-1 earlier in the year.
