Jordon Cooke earned his meal money and then some for the Kelowna Rockets Friday night.
Cooke stood tall, especially in the third period in a 4-2 win in Spokane as the Rockets completed a home-and-home sweep of the Chiefs.
The 19-year-old Leduc, AB native stopped 20 of 21 shots fired his way in the final period as the Chiefs threw everything his way in trying to claw back from a 4-1 deficit.
Despite three power-plays in the third all the Chiefs managed was a Blake Gal goal in the opening minute of the frame.
Ryan Olsen paced the Rockets attack with a pair of goals, his 22nd and 23rd of the season. Olsen now has more goals in 43 games this season than he managed in 135 previous games spread over three WHL campaigns.
Defencemen Jesse Lees and MacKenzie Johnston also scored for the Rockets who build a 2-1 lead after one period and led 4-1 after two.
Myles Bell, back in the lineup after service a two game suspension picked up a pair of assists giving him a team leading 62 points on the season.
Mitchell Wheaton also returned to the lineup after missing seven games due to injury as did Madison Bowey who missed Wednesday's game while competing in the Top Prospects Game in Halifax.
Cooke won his 24th game of the season and his club record 17th straight decision.
Friday's win was the Rockets 33rd of the season two more than they won all of last year.
The Rockets return home Saturday as they host the Vancouver Giants.
Kelowna will be looking for a team record 19th straight win on home ice while at the same time getting some semblance of revenge over a Giants team that edged Kelowna 4-3 in overtime a week ago in Vancouver.
