The Revelstoke Grizzlies lost all three games on its East Kootenay road trip last weekend.

Revelstoke hit the road for games against three of the league’s top team’s so far this season — the Kimberley Dynamiters, Fernie Ghostriders and Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

On Friday, the Grizzlies were in Kimberley for a rematch against the Dynamiters, who defeated Revelstoke 4-3 the previous Saturday.

The two teams battled in a tight-checking game that was marred by a third period brawl.

After a scoreless first, the teams traded goals in the second period, with Tommy Bodtker scoring twice for Revelstoke.

Kyle Berry scored 5:31 into the third to put Revelstoke up 3-2, but Korbyn Chabot tied the game with a power play goal with less than a minute to play in the third to send the game to overtime.

There, Keenan Haase scored Kimberley’s fourth power play goal of the game to give his team a 4-3 win.

Three players get kicked out on each team after a brawl about six minutes into the third period.

Michael Lenko stopped 23 shots in nets for Revelstoke.

On Saturday, Revelstoke was in Fernie to play the Ghostriders. Special teams hurt the Grizzlies, with Fernie scoring twice on the power play en route to a 4-1 victory. Louie Federico scored the Grizzlies lone goal. Goaltender Aidan Doak, who starred for the Grizzlies last season, made his return to the lineup in the loss, giving up four goals on 28 shots.

On Sunday, Revelstoke was in Creston to face the Thunder Cats in an afternoon game.

Once again, special teams were the Grizzlies achilles heel, as they gave up two power play goals and one short handed goal in a 5-1 loss. Wyatt Gottschalk scored Revelstoke’s lone goal. Lenko was in nets for Revelstoke, stopping 26 of 30 shots he faced.

The Grizzlies outshot their opponents in all three games.

Revelstoke plays once this weekend, when they host the Osoyoos Coyotes at the Forum on Saturday, Oct. 10.

The team currently has a 2-5-0-1 record, good for fourth place in the Doug Birks Division.
