KIJHL: Leafs win fourth straight

Alex Meeker's power-play goal lifted Nelson to a 5-4 win over Castlegar.

Alex Meeker scored in the third period as the Nelson Leafs beat the Castlegar Rebels 5-4 to stretch their winning streak to four games.

Jack Karran, Aigne McGeady-Bruce, Sawyer Hunt and Dale Howell, with a short-handed goal, also scored for the Leafs (13-14-2). Billy Gorn meanwhile stopped 30 shots in his third straight appearance for the Leafs.

Daniel Petten, Everett Hicks, John Moeller and Kirkland Spencer replied for Castlegar (15-10-0). Curt Doyle, who played for the Leafs last season, made 20 saves in net for the Rebels.

Nelson’s penalty kill was at its best during an undisciplined game. The Leafs stopped eight of 10 Rebels’ power plays.
