Weekend Wrap-up: Ice lose on U.S. road trip

The Kootenay Ice lost their third straight game as they faced the Americans and Chiefs

The Kootenay Ice couldn’t wrangle a win on their U.S. road trip.

First taking on the Tri-City Americans on Feb. 8, the Ice were down 7-4, after leading in the first.

Ice captain Peyton Krebs scored the opening goal, while Cole Muir, Holden Kodak and Jakin Smallwood added a goal of their own.

Parker AuCoin had a hat trick for the Americans, and Nolan Yaremko, Paycen Bjorklund had goals, while Krystof Hrabik notched two.

The Americans swapped out their goaltender Talyn Boyko after allowing three goals on 12 shots. To start the second period, Beck Warm was between the pipes and made 23 saves.

Ice goaltender Jesse Makaj stayed in net for two periods and allowed six goals on 28 shots. Curtis Meger came in to start the third period and allowed one goal on five shots.

Only 24 hours later the Ice were back in action, this time against the Spokane Chiefs on Feb. 9.

Two goals by Martin Bodak were all Kootenay could muster up in the 5-2 loss.

The Chiefs countered with goals from Jaret Anderson-Dolan, Riley Woods, Bobby Russell and two from Jack Finley.

Goaltender Curtis Meger faced 39 shots through 60 minutes, while Chiefs goalie Bailey Brkin saw 31 shots.

Ice power play was frozen and went zero for seven with the man advantage against the Chiefs.

With a couple of days off to recoup, the Ice will host the Saskatoon Blades on Feb. 15.

The Blades are second in the East Division with a 34-13-8 record on the season. While the Ice have an 11-35-7-1 record.

This year the teams have met twice splitting the games.

Puck drop against the Blades at Western Financial Place on Feb. 15 is 7 p.m.
