In the third period Richmond fought back, and managed to score at less than a minute into the stanza with another goal on the power play. This put them one goal away from the bears.

The bears responded with another goal, stretching their lead to 6-4 against Richmond.

The Sockeyes last goal wasn’t enough for them to cinch the win, with the final score 6-5 for Aldergrove.

Shots totalled at 43-39 for the Kodiaks.

Tyler Cannon was named first star with two goals during the game, and Justin Ralph secured second star with three goal assists.

The Kodiaks will play next in North Vancouver’s Harry Jerome Arena on Saturday against the Wolf Pack at 7 p.m.
