Clips win then lose

The Nanaimo Clippers did some things well on the weekend, but had to settle for one win out of two games.

The city’s B.C. Hockey League team defeated the Coquitlam Express 6-2 on Friday at Frank Crane Arena but lost to the Langley Chiefs on Sunday on the mainland by a 3-1 score.

The ice must have been a bit tilted for Friday’s game, as all eight goals were scored at the far end of the arena.

Nanaimo tallied all six of its goals in the second period to build a 6-0 lead that proved insurmountable.

Colton Cyr tallied twice in the frame and Gerry Fitzgerald, Graeme McCormack, Ryan Stanimir and Kiefer McNaughton had the others.

Charles-Andre Pelletier was the winning goalie as the Clips outshot the visitors 32-27.

Sunday’s game was a little lacklustre, and the difference was special teams. Nanaimo’s power-play had an 0-for-6 afternoon, made worse by the fact that Langley scored two short-handed goals.

Sam Labrecque scored the only goal for the Shipmen on a blast from the point.

Pelletier suffered the loss as the Clips outshot the Chiefs 32-23.

GAME ON … The next game for Nanaimo is Friday (Dec. 10) when the Alberni Valley Bulldogs visit Frank Crane Arena for a 7:10 p.m. faceoff.
