Rockets roll over punchless Royals

The Kelowna Rockets continue to make it look easy on home ice.

The Rockets scored five unanswered goals in the second period Wednesday and cruised to a convincing 6-1 victory over the visiting Victoria Royals.

The win was the Rockets 16th in a row at Prospera Place and seventh straight overall.

They have yet to lose since the Christmas break.

As was the case when eight different players scored in an 8-4 win in Prince George Saturday - six different players lit the lamp Wednesday.

Damon Severson, Zach Franko, Ryan Olsen, Carter Rigby, Myles Bell and MacKenzie Johnston with his first of the season scored for the Rockets.

Johnston, who also had an assist in the game, now has seven points in his last eight games. He has just 10 points over the entire season.

Severson, who had a pair of assists to go with his goal, upped his point streak to seven games while Colton Sissons increased his point streak to 12 games with an assist on Bell's power-play goal early in the second period.

Jordon Cooke wasn't terribly busy facing just 18 shots to record his 21st win of the season.

With just 42 games gone in the season the Rockets have now won 30 times, one fewer than they managed all of last season.

Wednesday's win was also their 17th on home ice, one more than they picked up all of last season.

The win Wednesday also vaulted the Rockets into sole possession of first place in the BC Division, two points up on Kamloops after the Blazers fell 3-1 to the Tri-City Americans.

Tri-City will invade Prospera Place Friday night as the Rockets look to pick up consecutive home win number 17.
