The Rockets hang on to win 4-3 over the Blazers in the Kamloops – WHL

The Rockets beat the Blazers 4-3

Turner McMillen scored the game-winning winner late in the third period at Sandman Center on Saturday as the Kelowna Rockets handed the Kamloops Blazers their first home ice loss of the season.

McMillen and Colton Dach each scored twice for the Rockets, while Matthew Seminoff, Connor Levis and Caedan Bankier were the goal scorers for the Blazers.

Blazers netman Dylan Garand made 29 saves on 33 shots in the loss, his fourth of the season. Kelowna goalkeeper Talyn Boyko stopped 33 of 36 Kamloops shots in the win.

The announced attendance was 4,456 for the first WHL game in Kamloops since the boundaries of the Interior Health collection were lifted earlier this week.

The Rockets improve to 11-6-0-2 with the win. The Blazers drop to 17-4-0-0, but still sit comfortably at the top of the WHL’s BC Division.

The Rockets are back in action on Tuesday in Kent, Washington, against the Seattle Thunderbirds. The Blazers play next time on Wednesday when the Vancouver Giants visit the Sandman Center.
