Clips beaten in double overtime

The Nanaimo Clippers are playing a lot of hockey this week no matter what. But they had to play even more on Thursday before eventually losing in double overtime, 3-2 to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs at Port Alberni.

Nanaimo got behind 2-0 early in the second period, but a goal from Ryan Stanimir with 30 seconds left in the period made it a one-goal game heading into the third. Stanimir then added the game-tying goal, a power-play marker, with just over a minute left.

Alberni Valley scored the winner three minutes into double OT.

Charles-Andre Pelletier made 37 saves in defeat as his team was outshot 40-39.

GAME ON … Nanaimo played Victoria on Friday after press time and hosts the Powell River Kings tonight (Nov. 6) at 7:10 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena … To read a web-exclusive article on the Clippers’ busy week, please visit www.nanaimobulletin.com.
