Pre-Game Report: Giants at Rockets

The Vancouver Giants (32-28-7-4) will head to the Okanagan for a meeting with the Kelowna Rockets (56-11-0-4) on Saturday night. The game will mark the end of the regular season for both teams. The G-Men have one win in seven games against the Rockets this season.

The Vancouver club is coming off a high-scoring 6-5 loss to the Rockets on Friday night at the Pacific Coliseum. The Giants outscored Kelowna 4-0 in the third period and were a goal-post away from overcoming a five goal deficit. Ty Ronning had two goals in the losing cause on Friday. The 16-year-old now has nine goals of the season after being named a co-winner of the Giants Rookie of the Year Award alongside Alec Baer prior to Friday's game.

The Rockets, who remain the top team in the Canadian Hockey League, had a record setting night on Friday. The victory in Vancouver marked Kelowna's 29th road win of the season which tied a league record that was set by the 2012-2013 Portland Winterhawks. Madison Bowey also had two goals for the Rockets, setting the club's franchise record for goals by a defenseman in a season as he eclipsed Tyson Barrie's 19 goal campaign in 2009-2010.
