The Aldergrove Kodiaks are down three games in the best-of-seven playoffs PJHL Harold Brittain conference series against the Ridge Meadows Flames, and need a win on Wednesday, Feb. 21 to keep in the game.

The Kodiaks fell 2-6 on Saturday to the Flames, following a 1-2 overtime loss on Friday and a 5-7 loss on Wednesday.

In Saturday’s game the Kodiaks were down 0-4 in the first period, until Kodiak captain Matt Oliver scored at 17:09. The Flames scored one more in the second to keep the lead, before Oliver scored again on a power play. The Flames wrapped it up in the third with their third power play goal.
