Spruce Kings draw first blood at LNG Canada Road Show in Kitimat

Corey Cunningham finished with two goals and an assist, while Jett Alexander stood tall making 32 saves to give the Spruce Kings a 5-1 victory at the LNG Canada Road Show at the Tamitik Arena in Kitimat.

“I was pretty pleased with our effort tonight,” said Spruce Kings Head Coach Alex Evin. “I liked our attention to detail, we were smart for the most part, and we matched their physicality and that is something you need to do against that team.”

PG: Corey Cunningham forced a turnover in the offensive zone, got the puck, and made a great move, opening up Mor and put through the wickets of the Langley goaltender to make it 4-0 Prince George. Cunningham’s team leading 24th of the year was unassisted at 5:29.

LAN: The puck was worked to Brian Scoville at the left point and his shot was tipped in front by Hunter McCoy and past Jett Alexander to make it 4-1. Scoville had the lone helper on McCoy’s 12th of the year at the 15 minute mark of the period.
