The Chilliwack Chiefs posted their second consecutive win over the Coquitlam Express. This time doing it in convincing fashion 6-1 at the Prospera Centre Saturday night.

The loss snapped the brief two game winning streak for the Express.

Chilliwack took a 2-0 lead into the dressing room after 20 minutes. They tallied both goals in similar fashion with a shot from the right point and traffic in front of goaltender Pierce Dushenko creating havoc for the Express rookie net minder. The Chiefs first goal came off the stick of Eric Roberts whose screened shot got through Dushenko. Mathieu Tibbet made a 2-0 game when banged home the rebound of a deflected point shot that handcuffed Dushenko.

Carter Cochrane led the way offensively for the Chiefs with a 4 point night thanks to 1 goal and 3 assists. He extended the Chiefs lead to three on the power play off the rush snapping a shot past Dushenko from the right wing.

Joey Santucci tallied the lone goal for the Express from the slot sliding a shot through the legs of Spencer Trembly.

Chiefs captain Austin Plevy scored the second power play goal of the game for Chilliwack as he cut to the net from the left side cut around Dushenko and slid the puck home following a turnover at the Express blue line. Plevy had a 3 point night for the Chiefs with 1 goal and 2 assists.

Late in the second period another mistake by the Express at the offensive blue line quickly turned into a breakaway for Kyle Westerlingh who made no mistake firing a shot over Dushenko's glove.

Westerlingh was credited with his second of the game in the third period as he got a stick on a Carter Cochrane shot that changed directions and slid home.

Spencer Trembly posted his first win in Chilliwack colors in his second game turning aside 44 of 45 Express shots.

The Chiefs also had the edge in special teams going 2 for 7 on the power play while killing off all 6 Express advantages.

The Express need short memories of what happened Saturday night as they host the Victoria Grizzlies Sunday afternoon at 2pm.
