The Langley Knights are back on track.
The Knights snapped a four-game losing skid in a big way, after beating the Grandview Steelers 5-4 in double overtime on Thursday at the George Preston Recreation Centre, and then defeating the Ridge Meadows Flames 5-2 on Friday at Maple Ridgeâ€™s Planet Ice.
The wins give the Knights at 14-10-1-1 record.
They sit at the top of the Pacific Junior Hockey Leagueâ€™s five-team Harold Brittain Conference, two points in front of both the Aldergrove Kodiaks and Abbotsford Pilots.

Carson Rose (shorthanded), Tristan Craighead, and Dylan McCann scored the other goals of the Knights, who trailed 2-1 after the first period.

On Friday at Planet Ice, the Knights got four unanswered third period goals off the sticks of Levi De Waal, Rose, Jackson Surbey and
McCann (into the empty net) to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 5-2 win over the Flames.
Surbey opened the scoring 1:41 into the opening frame, before the Flamesâ€™ Boston Colley tied the score later in the period.
In the second period, Ridge Meadowsâ€™ Bradley Crompton found the net with 45 seconds to go in the second period to give the home team a 2-1 lead going into the third.
The Knights travel to Aldergrove Arena on Wednesday (Dec. 10) to take on the Kodiaks in match-up of regional rivals.
Opening puck drop is 7:15 p.m.
Then, on Thursday, the Langley junior Bs host the Flames at the GPRC. That game gets underway at 7:30 p.m.
The defending PJHL champion Kodiaks are flying of late, having won their past five games.
The Kodiaks most recent win came on Friday, when they downed the Pilots 4-1 at Abbotsfordâ€™s MSA Arena.
Cameron Davitt, Aaron Markin (on a power play), Quinncy Leroux, and Spencer McHaffie (into an empty net) scored the Kodiaksâ€™ goals.
Kodiaks goaltender Ben Giesbrecht stopped 26 of 27 shots fired his way.
