Three games, three nights, 1,000 kilometers on the bus - no problem for the Kelowna Rockets.
The Rockets wrapped up a three game weekend Saturday night with a convincing 6-2 victory over the visiting Prince Albert Raiders.
The win would come after a 48 hour span in which they beat Seattle 8-0 on home ice Thursday, travel to Seattle and beat the T-Birds 4-3 in overtime Friday before arriving back home at 5 a.m. Saturday to get ready to host the Raiders 14 hours later.
Cody Fowlie scored twice while Tyson Baillie, the overtime hero Friday night, had a goal and two assists.
Damon Severson and Ryan Olsen with power-play goals and Jesse Lees also scored for the Rockets.
Tyrell Goulbourne and captain Colton Sissons each added a pair of assists.
Austin Daae and Mark McNeil scored late in the game to ruin Jordon Cooke's bid for a second straight shutout.
Cooke turned aside 17 shots to earn his league best 27th win of the season and run his personal winning streak to 20 games.
Despite the grind the Rockets jumped all over the Raiders off the opening faceoff pelting netminder Andy Desautels with 19 shots and three goals.
Fowlie with his first on the night, Severson and Baillie staked the Rockets to that 3-0 first period lead.
They upped the margin to 5-0 after two before Olsen rounded out the Rockets scoring midway through the third.
The Rockets outshot the Raiders 32-8 over the decisive opening 40 minutes and 44-19 overall.
Saturday's win ran the Rockets home winning streak to 21 games tied for the fourth longest streak in league history with Flin Flon, Estevan and Kamloops.
They'll try for win number 22 in a row Thursday when the Victoria Royals come to town.
Before that the Rockets continue their 10 day odyssey Monday In Kamloops - their fourth game in five nights.
They will play three in three at the end of the week to conclude a seven game in 10 day stretch.
