It was exciting end to the Leafs first game at home played Friday night at the Nelson and District Community Complex.
The Nelson Leafs beat Creston Valley Thunder 5 to 4 in their second preseason win. They held onto their lead late in the third period despite playing short handed in the last two minutes of the game.
Despite Creston pulling their goalie, the home team still won.
The Leafs conclude the preseason Wednesday at the NDCC when they host the rebels. Regular season play begins Friday in Castlegar against the Rebels.
