Burnaby Lakers push Victoria Shamrocks to game 7

Game 7 will go Tuesday night in Burnaby.

Cam Milligan scored his second of the game for the Lakers on the power play, tying the game at four heading into the third.

Scott Jones and Robert Church scored three goals for the Lakers in the third. Rocks’ Corey Small brought Victoria back to within two with his first of the night, but the Lakers regained the lead as Church scored on a five-on-three power play.

The ‘Rocks will take on the Lakers for the final game of the series at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 15 in Burnaby.
