Spokane takes the front end of the home and home against Kootenay

Kootenay got on the board first on Friday night, as they have in all three games they’ve played this year. Barrett Sheen found the back of the net near the midway point with a strong move in front of the net off a setup from Peyton Krebs.“We were all outplaying them both 5-on-5 and [on] special teams, but in the end I think it’s just immature hockey on our part to let them come back,” Baer said. “We were a little lackadaisical and it cost us.”Coming out of the second intermission down 4-1, the Chiefs made it a two-goal game at 6:19 of the third as Riley McKay found the net for the first time this season off assists from Hayden Ostir and Smith.
