At the Langley Rivermen's expense on Wednesday, the Chilliwack Chiefs continued their dominance of B.C. Hockey League Mainland Division opponents.
The Chiefs skated to a 5-1 victory over the visiting Rivermen in the second meeting of the season between the two rivals.
The Chiefs are 6-0-1-1 against Mainland foes.
The Rivermen got off to a good start as Evan Anderson notched his first goal in a Rivermen uniform since being acquired by the 'Men last week.
Anderson stuffed home a loose rebound at the side of the goal.
The Chiefs responded just over six minutes later on a shorthanded breakaway from Ryan Donohoe.
The teams entered the first intermission tied at 1-1, but the shot advantage went to the Chiefs at 13-7.
The second and third periods belonged to the Chiefs. Chilliwack's Luke Esposito scored just over a minute into the frame to give the hosts a 2-1 advantage.
Near the 10 minute mark Derek Sutliffe had a chance to tie the game on a shorthanded breakaway, but could not finish.
That seemed to be a turning point as Jaret Babych scored the insurance goal with under four minutes left on a shot down the right wing that beat Barr between the pads.
With 20 minutes left to play, the Chiefs kept their foot on the gas and added two more goals from Donohoe and Garrett Forster to close out the contest.
