G-Men Win in Kamloops
The Blazers got out to a great start, scoring right off the opening face-off just six seconds into the game when Aspen Sterzer walked down the left wing and beat Lee glove side. The Giants responded with a strong push back effort that eventually resulted in an equalizing goal when Popoff dug out a loose puck in the Kamloops crease and knocked it into the net. Kulak scored the eventual winner in the late stages with a long slap shot from the right point that got past Kamloops goalie Bolton Pouliot cleanly to give Vancouver a lead they wouldn't relinquish.
The Giants extended the lead in the middle frame when Houck buried a one-timer from the slot after Popoff found him with a nice pass off the end boards. Traber added his name to the scoresheet as well when he deflected a Blake Orban point shot from in front of the net for his fourth goal of the season.
Lee had to make a couple of big saves in the third period, but the Giants played a solid final stanza to close out the victory on the road.
