Cougars claw back for 5-4 comeback win over Rockets

The Prince George Cougars keep finding ways to win.

The Cougars erased a 4-1 deficit to earn a 5-4 win over the Kelowna Rockets in front of 5,004 fans at Prospera Place.

“You take the body of work, I think it might be one of the most important wins of our season,” said Associate Coach Jim Playfair on last night’s postgame show on 94.3 The Goat.

“The fact that when we get later into the season, we get back-to-backs, three games in four nights, we can draw upon this one and the fact that we’re never out of a game if we stick to the details and work together.”

Gabriel Szturc and Tij Iginla each scored twice for Kelowna.
