I'd say 4 or 5 wins out of 6 games.

Added later: but 6 out of 6 would be awesome.

These young men deserve one big Turkey for the break!! Great job looks like with Saskatoon win tonight they will have one very special Christmas break!!

Nice tour in Prince Albert, not everyone has the chance to see behind the wall at the Penn. I actually played hockey inside when I was a kid against the inmates.

I cant believe how well this team is doing. 6 wins in 8 nights on the road, 12 straight wins, 13 straight road wins, 28-3-2 record, 58 points. This team has no signs of slowing down. They are on pace for 60+ wins.

As it stands today:

Canadian Hockey League Not rankings

1) Erie Otters....................... 59 points.... 35 games played
2) Kelowna Rockets................ 58 points.... 33 games played
3) Blainville-Boisbriand, Armada 53 points.... 35 games played

So if Kelowna had played the same 35 games as the other 2, they may have 62 points.

Baring any health/injury issues Kelowna has good promise for Top WHL prize, if so onto Memorial Cup in London Ontario.

Rockets gave Kamloops a shellacking last night 7 to 1, if Kelowna can stay healthy I can see them winning WHL then off to Memorial Cup.
Key is stay healthy

They are in Vancouver tonight which should be other win.

With these latest wins and Eerie losing in their last couple bouts I would not be surprised to see Kelowna at the #1 spot in the CHL in the upcoming week (we're currently #2).

So Rockets blasted the number 2 team in WHL yesterday in Portland (Winterhawks) 3 goals in each period for a 9 to 3 win.

Good for them and they are rolling along nicely but hopefully fans don't put too much into these back to backs in Portland. They are severely short handed with a number of their top players at the WJC.

True Buckeye19, since Kelowna has beaten them is pervious 2 encounters 6 to 2 then 6 to 3.
