Topping’s winner sends Bruins past Rockets

The Chilliwack Bruins scored three third period goals to upend the Kelowna Rockets Friday night in Kelowna.

Facing a team they’ve had all kinds of trouble with recently, the Bruins found themselves trailing 2-0 after 40 minutes.

Minnesota Wild prospect Brett Bulmer was the villain, opening the scoring 49 seconds into the game and doubling the Kelowna lead 3:58 into period two.

The goals were his ninth and tenth of the season and Spencer Main drew assists on both.

Chilliwack’s Brandon Manning got the comeback rolling, scoring his 12th of the season 1:45 into the final frame with assists to Curt Gogol and Steven Hodges.

The Bruins captain struck again, tying the score with an even-strength goal at 10:48. One minute and 23 seconds later, Mitch Topping netted the game winner, sending the Rockets to just their second loss in their last 13 outings.

It was also the first time Chilliwack has beat Kelowna in three meetings this year.
