Clippers score OT win to extend streak

The Nanaimo Clippers clipped the Victoria Grizzlies 2-1 in double OT on Tuesday on the road for their sixth-straight win in BCHL play.

The Nanaimo Clippers needed overtime to keep their win streak alive.

The Clips clipped the Victoria Grizzlies 2-1 in double OT on Tuesday on the road for their sixth-straight win in B.C. Hockey League play.

Chris Dodero scored the winner on a rebound, Sheldon Rempal stayed hot with a goal and Evan Johnson made 34 saves for the victory.

“It wasn’t our best game, it was kind of a no-hitter, but we found a way to win and our goalie stepped up and he was our best player by far,” said Blake Clement, Clippers assistant coach.

The Shipmen didn’t create as many chances as the coaching staff might have liked, as they didn’t maintain enough puck possession and tried to force plays that ended up going the other way.

Still, any road win is a positive, Clement said.

“It’s nice to keep the streak going. It’s very important to get that win last night to go on this road trip still having a lot of confidence in our game and knowing that we have a chance to go on a pretty long streak if we play our game and play hard and just stay focused on one game at a time.”

GAME ON … The Clippers visit the Prince George Spruce Kings on Friday (Dec. 4), then visit the Chilliwack Chiefs on Saturday and the Surrey Eagles on Sunday.
