Cowichan Capitals draw even with Victoria Grizzlies

The Cowichan Valley Capitals managed a 2-2 tie on the road against the Victoria Grizzlies on Tuesday night.

After former Capital Dane Gibson opened the scoring for Victoria in the first period, the Caps got goals from Adam Osczevski and Carter Turnbull – making his season debut – in the second to pull ahead. The Grizzlies drew even with a powerplay marker in the third period, and nothing changed through the end of regulation and two five-minute overtimes.

The tie was a strong result considering the team was playing without its two top centres, Thomas Gobeil (injured) and Kyle Horsman (suspended). Defenceman Ben Verrall also remains out with an injury.

Lane Michasiw made 38 saves on 40 shots.

The Caps were 0-for-4 on the powerplay, while the Grizzlies scored on one of their two opportunities.

The Caps will play a home-and-home series with the Nanaimo Clippers this weekend, in Nanaimo on Friday and at the Island Savings Centre on Saturday, facing off at 7 p.m.
