Another successful Teddy Bear Toss is in the books, and Langley provided all the punches in a 5-2 victory over Trail this past Saturday. In a goal that almost mirrored the one that sent the teddy bears to the ice the previous season, Brian Scoville fired a point shot that sent the barn into a throwing frenzy. Not long after, Kaeden Patrick added to the early Riv lead. Leading 2-1 in the second, Jake Livingstone broke back into the scoring column. Trail began the third with a quick goal to bring them within one, but Patrick swiftly scored to regain the two-goal lead. Devin Leduc sealed the deal with an empty-netter as time wound down. Braedon Fleming stopped 25 of 27 shots on the night.
The Rivermen will hit the ice again on Friday night with a visit to Chilliwack to take on the Chiefs before returning home on Saturday to face the Surrey Eagles. Saturday’s game is Langley Food Bank Night, where all donations will be doubled pound for pound. Game time is 7:00 pm in Chilliwack on Friday and 7:15 pm on Saturday at the Lodge.
