Grizzlies extend BCHL winning streak to six games

Grizzlies play hockey exhibition vs. Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday

The Victoria Grizzlies defeated Salmon Arm Silverbacks 4-1 on Saturday to extend their B.C. Hockey League winning streak to six games.

The locals erased a 1-0 first period deficit by scoring three goals in the first 7:10 of the second period, adding a last-minute goal in the third to ice the victory.

P.J. Conlon scored his 15th and 16th goals to lead the Grizzlies, while Matthew Galajda was solid in stopping 36 of 37 Salmon Arm shots.

Mitchell Barker, with his seventh, and Brayden Gelsinger, with his 20th of the season, also scored in the win, while Ross Heidt got the lone marker for Salmon Arm.

The win pushed the Grizzlies record to .500 (20-20-4-0) for the first time this season and left them six points back of third place Cowichan Valley in the Island Division, with a game in hand.

The Grizz host the Red Bull Salzburg under-20 team from Austria in an exhibition game tonight (Jan. 27) at 7 p.m. at The Q Centre. A welcome luncheon is happening at the Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort and Spa today starting at noon. Tickets are $50 each and include one seat for lunch and two tickets to the evening’s game. The guest speaker is John Grisdale, longtime BCHL commissioner and former Vancouver Canucks player. Tickets are available at the Westin or at the Grizzlies office at The Q Centre.
