The win for the Giants and a loss for the Victoria Royals has put Vancouver one point away from second place in the B.C. division. They’re now one win away from tying the franchise record of 11 consecutive wins, which was achieved during the 2008 – 2009 season.
The Giants went two for four on power plays and had a 3-1 lead by the end of the second period. Eric Florchuk and Bowen Byram each scored and added assists in what Dyck calls a solid game.
“We played a solid game today. We took advantage of some power plays early and we could have had even more offence on our breakaways. I liked the way we played defensively tonight,” said Dyck.
Seattle’s Simon Kubicek scored with 43 seconds left in the third making the game a 3-2 final.
The Giants are hoping to make it 11 straight wins when they play Seattle again on Friday in Vancouver.
