Aldergrove Kodiaks push series to limit

The Aldergrove Kodiaks sure like suspense.

They forced the Pacific Junior Hockey League championship to the full seven games with their rivals, the Richmond Sockeyes.

The Bears and the Sockeyes met for Game 7 on Monday evening (after Langley Advance press time).

They headed into the final game having tied the series 3-3.

In the Saturday, March 29 contest, the Kodiaks got off to an early start, taking the lead on a powerplay.

Richmond, visiting the Aldergrove Arena, answered back less than a minute later with a powerplay marker of their own.

Richmond went up by one in the second frame and appeared to be gathering momentum.

At 12:27 of the period, Aldergrove tied it up on a short-handed rally.

The third period went scoreless, filling the arena with tension. Kodiak Scott McHaffie gave the crowd a reason to explode when he scored at 2:56 into overtime.

McHaffie was named first star with goalie Jordan Liem second star. Aldergrove shots, 44, far outpaced Richmond at 29. On the powerplay, Aldergrove was 1/7 while the visitors were 1/4.
