Make it two games and two wins for the Prince George Spruce Kings, who struck twice on the power play and held the Ottawa Jr. Senators to just 13 shots on goal in a 4-0 win that kept them even with the Brooks Bandits atop the preliminary-round standings.

PRINCE GEORGE SPRUCE KINGS 4, OTTAWA JR. SENATORS 0
Ben Brar had a goal and an assist and Logan Neaton made 13 saves, leading the Spruce Kings to a win over the Jr. Senators in the lone game Monday. Nicholas Poisson, Nick Bochen and Dustin Manz also scored for Prince George, while Dylan Anhorn and Patrick Cozzi chipped in with two assists apiece.

“I think we just focused on our own game tonight. I didn’t think our first period yesterday [against Oakville] was where it needed to be and we didn’t defend hard enough. We’re realizing this tournament is more about our game so that was our focus - to defend hard, check hard and the offence will take care of itself.”
-- Adam Maglio, Prince George head coach, on continuing to get better
