Spruce Kings clip Langley Rivermen in overtime

Led by their captain Kevan Kilistoff, who scored twice and added an assist, the ’Men wrapped up their fifth game in seven days.

The Rivermen trailed late in the third period when Kilistoff tied it up on the man advantage with 57 seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime.

Combining the overtime point with a 2-0 win over the Spruce Kings on Thursday, the Rivermen picked up three of a possible four points in back-to-back games in Prince George.

“We felt like we battled back in the last minute to tie it up,” Rivermen associate coach Jon Calvano said. “We had some moments in the game where we didn’t have any push and we paid for that in overtime.”

Kilistoff opened the scoring, finding the back of the net less than a minute into the game.

Will Cook scored the other goal for Langley.

Forward Evan Anderson contributed with two assists.

Justin Rai scored his league-leading ninth goal of the season while Braiden Epp also scored for the Spruce Kings, who lead the Mainland Division with 13 points.

“We’ve played eight games so far and we’ve seen the good things, and a lot of things we need to work on but it’s a long season ahead of us,” Calvano said.

ICE CHIPS: Shots during Friday’s game were dead even at 32 apiece. Kilistoff was named second star of the game.
