Nitros pointless in three-game road trip
Three was an unlucky number for the Kimberley Dynamiters this weekend.
The team went on the road for three games in three nights, suffering three losses up in Revelstoke, Chase and Sicamous.
Following the loss to the Grizzlies on Thursday night, the Nitros headed into Chase and dropped a 4-1 decision before falling 3-1 at the hands of the Eagles in Sicamous on Saturday.
The Heat scored four unanswered goals to win 4-1 on Friday night in Chase, as the Nitros headed west following their Thursday night matchup against the Grizzlies in Revelstoke.
Even though they took the loss, Kimberley scored first on a goal from Jared Marchi, but it was all Chase from there on in.
Cody Koskimaki, Jordan Passmore and Kaleb Boyle all answered for the Heat in the latter 10 minutes of the opening frame.
Nicholas Fidanza added a goal in the second period, while both squads were scoreless in the final frame.
Tyson Brouwer took the loss in net, turning away 21 shots, while Kimberley put 23 pucks on Jacob Mattes for the Heat.
Kimberley was shut out in four powerplay opportunities, while the Heat drew blood once in five chances with the man-advantage.
Kimberley headed into Sicamous on Saturday, but were undone after the Eagles scored a pair of goals in the final period to break a 1-1 tie after 40 minutes.
Sicamous notched a power play goal from Tyson Taylor in the opening period, but Kimberley answered back from Andrew Stack in the following period to even it up.
Matthew Maetche scored another powerplay goal in the third period for the Eagles, while Nathan Grieve scored the empty netter.
Jeremy Mousseau guarded the net for Kimberley, making 35 saves in defeat, while his team put 44 shots on Eagles goalie Kris Joyce.
Despite the losses, Kimberley still stands on top of the Eddie Mountain Division, one point ahead of the Creston Valley Thundercats.
Next action for the Nitros is a home-and-home series with the division runner ups next weekend.
