The Springfield Jr. Blues were unable to repeat their shootout efforts from their previous game, dropping Friday night’s contest to the Kenai River Brown Bears by a score of 2-1 in a shootout.
After a scoreless first period, Kenai River opened the scoring with a power-play goal 5 minutes and 22 seconds into the second period. With just under 4 minutes remaining in the second, Springfield forward Nikita Kozyrev beat the Brown Bears goaltender with a backhand shot.
The score remained tied 1-1 through the second, third and overtime periods to send the game to a shootout. Kozyrev was able to score for Springfield in the shootout, but Kenai River was able to get 2 pucks past Springfield goaltender Juraj Ovecka to give them the extra point.
