The Prince George Spruce Kings and Penticton Vees are already in playoff mode, even the post-season doesn’t begin until March.
The captain was set up for his second of the game thanks to a great individual effort from Patrick Cozziduring the three-on-three overtime session.
“Obviously, Penticton is a great organization in this league and we prepared well against them as they did against us and it ended up being a really good game.”
The Spruce Kings improve to 14-6-0-1 on the season and are now three points back of the Chilliwack Chiefs for top spot in the Mainland Division.
The Vees found themselves up 1-0 after 20 minutes of play courtesy of Ryan Sandelin who put home a pass from playmaking centre David Silye beating Spruce Kings netminder Logan Neaton.
Poisson and James Miller (Penticton) traded power-play goals in the third period to force overtime.
The Spruce Kings are back in action next Friday and Saturday against the Langley Rivermen (9-10-0-1).
Poisson is expecting another hard-fought battle from the division rival.
“Our division has been really tight so any points we can get are very important and we’re looking to climb the standings a little bit.”
The Spruce Kings outshot the Bulldogs 46-19.
