Clippers edge Capitals on the road

The Nanaimo Clippers edged the Cowichan Valley Capitals by a 2-1 score on Tuesday night at Duncan’s Island Savings Centre.

The Nanaimo Clippers were able to slow down a division rival and win on the road.

The Clips edged the Cowichan Valley Capitals by a 2-1 score on Tuesday night at Duncan’s Island Savings Centre.

After a scoreless first period, the Clippers’ Matt Creamer got enough space to be able to deke the goalie and open the scoring about five minutes into the second. Midway through the frame, Tate Coughlin extended Nanaimo’s lead with an unassisted power-play marker.

The Capitals spoiled a shutout bid as Rhett Kingston scored with a minute and a half left in the game, but the Clippers held on.

Evan DeBrouwer was the winning goalie as shots were 29-28 in favour of the home team.

The result marked the seventh time in eight games that the Clippers have earned at least a point, as they have gone 5-1-0-2 over that span.

GAME ON … The Clippers host the West Kelowna Warriors on Friday (Oct. 28) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena and then host the Powell River Kings on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Frank Crane.
