Aldergrove Kodiaks Cameron Davitt scores the first power play goal on Mission City Outlaws goalie Jeffrey Veitch on Wednesday night at Aldergrove Arena. Aldergrove won the opening game of the second playoff series 5-1.

Outlaws drop opening game

Mission is down one game to none in its best of seven playoff series against the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

It wasn’t what the Mission squad was hoping for. The well-rested Outlaws were in Aldergrove on Wednesday night to take on a tired Kodiaks squad in the opening game of their second round playoffs series.

The Kodiaks were dominant on home ice, handing Mission a convincing 5-1 loss.

Aldergrove took the game to the Outlaws, scoring five straight goals to earn a commanding 5-0 lead midway through the third period.

Mission’s only marker came in the final frame when Ryan Sharma found the back of the net. Assists went to Brody Dyck and Bakshi Gill.

Jeffrey Veitch took the loss in net, stopping 27 of 32 shots he faced.

Mission and Aldergrove hooked up again tonight for game two of the series.

The Mission Outlaws have been enjoying a well-earned rest after eliminating the Langley Knights from the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs last week.

The Kodiaks just finished a gruelling seven game series against the Abbotsford Pilots,  which wrapped up Monday night.
