After seeing their 3-1 series lead disappear after back to back losses to the Victoria Grizzlies, the Powell River Kings rebounded in game 7 to claim the Cliff McNabb Trophy and the Coastal Conference Championship.
The Kings entered a packed Bear Mountain Arena and left with a 4-1 win – advancing to the face the Vernon Vipers in the Fred Page Cup Final. The Grizzlies had forced a 7th and final game on home ice after wins over the Kings Friday in Victoria and Saturday in Powell River.
Kyle Bodie opened the scoring for the Kings just over three minutes into the opening period. Clay Harvey and Jordan Grant added second period goals to give the Kings a 3-0 cushion heading into the final 20 minutes.
The Grizzlies broke netminder Carsen Chubak's shut-out bid with four minutes remaining to give the Grizzlies faithful some hope but Harvey's second of the night sealed the deal for the Kings.
Chubak earned first star honours making 27 saves.
The Kings will now host the Vernon Vipers Friday at the Powell River Recreation Complex in game one of the Fred Page Cup Final.
