Seattle (31-15-2-3) out-hustled and out-worked a Rockets team that has dominated their foes all season, winning 4-1 at the ShoWare Center. Roberts Lipsbergs had a goal and an assist and Shea Theodore provided another power-play goal to propel the Thunderbirds.
One night after struggling on its power play, Seattle (30-15-2-3) rebounded in a big way, Saturday with all four of its goals coming with the man advantage. Shea Theodore was a major part of that all night. The defenseman finished with a goal and three assists for the T-Birds.
Williams-Goss scored 24 of his 32 points in the second half, finishing 10-for-15 from the field, including 3-for-4 from beyond the arc.
After Seattle’s 3-2 shootout victory against Moose Jaw, Tuesday, Kozun is now 4-0 with two shutouts. Kozun, 19, went 3-0 with a 0.65 goals-against-average and a .977 save percentage last week in earning himself the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week award.
The victory allowed Seattle (29-14-2-3) to stretch its winning streak to seven games despite squandering a 2-goal lead it gained early in the first period. With the playoffs creeping up, Seattle is in firm control of the fourth seed in the Western Conference.
Seattle (28-14-2-3) won its sixth straight game behind another excellent game between the pipes for newly acquired goalie Taran Kozun.
Seattle sent goaltender Justin Myles along with defenseman Austin Douglas and a 2015 fourth round Bantam draft selection to the Blazers for goaltender Taran Kozun.
Roberts Lipsbergs and Alexander Delnov, playing on the same line for the majority of Saturday’s game with the team still shorthanded, combined to deliver seven points, including the late equalizer and overtime game-winner as Seattle stunned Spokane with a 4-3 overtime victory, Saturday.
Seattle previously acquired Sam McKechnie, Jaimen Yakubowski and Adam Henry from the Hurricanes back in October. Like the other three, Maxwell apparently made it known to Lethbridge general manager Brad Robson that he wanted to play for a contender.
