Jan 2, 2013 / 3:20 pm
The Kelowna Rockets have cracked the Canadian Hockey League's latest Top 10 rankings.
Winners of 14 straight on home ice and 19 of their last 23 overall, the Rockets have vaulted into eighth in the latest CHL rankings released Wednesday.
The Rockets, (26-10-1-1) have won 14 straight on home ice and have won 19 of their last 23 overall.
The only defeats since the end of October are a pair of defeats in Tri-City plus road losses in Calgary and Seattle.
Their hot streak over the past two months has vaulted the Rockets into third place in the Western Hockey League's Western Conference and within two points of the BC Division leading Kamloops Blazers.
The Rockets hold two games in hand on the Blazers.
Three other Western Hockey League clubs also find themselves in the CHL Top 10 including Portland (3), Kamloops (5) and Edmonton (6).
The Rockets go after their 15th straight win on home ice tonight (Wednesday) when the Victoria Royals make their first trip into Kelowna this season.
The franchise record for consecutive wins on home ice is 24 established during the 1992-93 season when the team was still located in Tacoma.
The longest home winning streak since the Rockets relocated to Kelowna is 18 set during the 2002-2003 season.
Following Wednesday's home date the Rockets hit the road for games in Prince George Friday and Saturday.
