Kings nab back-to-back wins against Rampage

Terrace's CIHL team wins western division, plays final two games of the regular season this weekend

Terrace will face off against Smithers when the CIHL playoffs begin later this month.

The Terrace River Kings closed out 2014 with a 3-0 loss to the Smithers Steelheads – one which ended the Kings’ months-long winning streak – but opened 2015 with two back-to-back wins against the Prince Rupert Rampage to reassert their dominance of the 2014/2015 CIHL season.

That puts the Kings at 12-2, first in the west, with 24 points going into this weekends’ games – the final games of the regular season.

That’s a rematch in Rupert on Friday, where the Rampage will surely be looking for blood. The Kings took the Rampage 6-5 Friday, Jan. 2 in Terrace and 6-2 on Rupert’s ice Jan. 3.

The Kings are back in Terrace this Saturday, where the Kings host the Quesnel Kangaroos, who are sitting at 6-6 in the east with 13 points at the time of this writing.

That’ll be the first and only time they face off against the ‘Roos.

The Williams Lake Stampeders are on top of the CIHL standings with 26 points. Terrace won its one and only regular season game against them 9-6 back in November.

And CIHL playoffs start Jan. 31, with Terrace facing off against rivals the Smithers Steelheads in the first round.

This should be a heated series as the Steelheads (8-4) are the only team that’s been able to beat Terrace this year, handing them both of their losses – a 5-3 loss in October in Smithers and December’s defeat, also in Smithers.

And Terrace has been able to find Smithers’ number twice, a 9-4 win in Terrace on Oct. 4 and a 5-4 win in Terrace on Nov. 8.

Home ice is still to be determined.
