Nitros stay hot with wins over T-Cats, Braves

Kimberley edges Creston on the road and Spokane at home by scores of 3-2.

The Kimberley Dynamiters stayed hot this weekend with a pair of wins over the Creston Valley Thunder Cats and the Spokane Braves at scores of 3-2.

The Nitros have one four of their last five games, and haven’t lost during that stretch, which includes a 4-4 draw with the T-Cats last week.

After scoring the first goal, the Dynamiters engineered a comeback in the third period to beat Creston 3-2 on Friday while on the road.

Dylan Sibbald opened the scoring late in the frame, before the T-Cats responded from Connor Kidd and Jesse Collins in the second period.

Jason Richter tied it up just under five minutes into the final frame, and Alex Rosolowsky scored the game-winner with less than 90 seconds remaining in the game.

Creston led the way on the shot clock, but Tyson Brouwer picked up the win for Kimberley with 33 saves, while Kyle Michalovsky turned away 27 shots in defeat.

It was a relatively tame affair with the special teams battle, as Kimberley was denied on three powerplay chances, while Creston was shut out in a pair of opportunities with the man-advantage.

The Dynamiters returned home on Saturday night and beat the Braves with a pair of goals in the third period.

After a scoreless opening frame, Brady Revie drew blood just before the halfway mark of the period. Four minutes later, Tanner Stolz answered back with a powerplay goal for Spokane.

Dallin Wolf put the Nitros up just into the third period, and Richter notched some insurance on the powerplay at 11:11.

A few minutes later, Paxton Malone responded for Spokane, but Kimberley shut down any attempt at a comeback after that.

Brouwer got starting duties again, and picked up the win with 33 saves while Jon Manlow turned away 20 shots in defeat.

Kimberley is currently in second place in the Eddie Mountain Division, and have two more games left in the regular season—both home affairs with the Fernie Ghostriders.
