Bruins blanked by Cougars

James Priestner stopped 22 shots, leading his Prince George Cougars to a 5-0 shutout win over the Chilliwack Bruins.

In the last game of a seven-game road swing, the Bruins stayed close for 40 minutes before collapsing in the third.

The Cougars opened the scoring at 11:23 of the first period on a goal by Greg Fraser, and doubled the lead 7:51 into period two on a Charles Inglis strike.

Third period goals by James Dobrowolski, Caleb Belter and Shane Pilling put the short-handed Bruins away.

Chilliwack was playing without the services of first-liners Roman Horak and Robin Soudek, who are both playing for the Czech Republic at the 2011 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships.

The Bruins were also missing rookies Steven Hodges and Brandon Magee, absent as they play for Team Pacific in the World U-17 Hockey Challenge.

Chilliwack is finally back on home ice Friday night (7:30 p.m.), hosting the Moose Jaw Warriors in a New Years Eve clash.
