Penticton Vees

The Penticton Vees are halfway to their 2012 Canadian Junior Hockey League record of 42 straight wins.

The Vees earned their 21st straight win with a 3-1 decision in West Kelowna over the Warriors. Benjamin Brar set up Owen Sillinger for the opening goal in the first period at 8:25. Tanner Campbell then setup Jonathan Desbiens at 16:17 to even things up. Nearly two minutes later, Vees captain Tyson Jost buried what proved to be the game winner, his first of the season and his 19th of the year at 17:51. Assists were given to Nicholas Jones and Dante Fabbro.

The Vees’ third and final goal was scored on the power-play by Easton Brodzinski at 13:05 of the second period. Fabbro and Luke Voltin setup the goal.

The Vees went one-for-three on the man advantage and killed off all five Warrior power-plays.

Anthony Brodeur made 45 saves, including 18 in the third period. The Vees directed 22 shots at Keelan Williams.

The Vees return to action Saturday when they host the Cowichan Valley Capitals at the South Okanagan Events Centre at 6 p.m.
