The Revelstoke Grizzlies remain winless in December after losing twice to the Kamloops Storm last week.

The Storm blew into town last Tuesday, Dec. 9, and took advantage of a red hot power play to beat the Grizzlies 5-0.

Kamloops scored four times on eight power play opportunities and outshot Revelstoke 50-20 in the win.

Carter Huber was in the box when Alexander Buchanan put Kamloops on the scoresheet at 13:19 of the first period.

The Storm would add two more goals in the second, getting a second power play goal from Addison Bazian, followed by an even-strength marker from Ian Chrystal.

Kamloops would add to their lead in the third, getting power play goals from Ryan Keis and Mitch Friesen to cement the win.

Michael Lenko made 45 saves in a losing cause for Revelstoke.

On Friday, Revelstoke jumped in the bus and headed west down the Trans-Canada for a rematch against Kamloops.

The Storm jumped out to an early lead, getting a goal from Friesen only 23 seconds into the game. Zach Paxman would tie the game before the end of the first period, with assists to Tyler Chavez Leech and Steve Fiust.

The second period was scoreless but Kamloops took control of the game early in the third. Chrystal put the Storm ahead 2-1 93 seconds into the frame and Kamloops would outshoot Revelstoke 17–3 in the period to cruise to a 2-1 win.

With the losing streak, Revelstoke has fallen into last place in the Doug Birks division, five points back of the fourth-place Chase Heat but with two games in hand.

The team plays a home-and-home against the 100 Mile House Wranglers this weekend. On Friday the teams face off in Revelstoke and on Saturday the teams are in 100 Mile for the last game before the players head home for the holidays.

The Wranglers currently sit six points ahead of the Grizzlies in the standings.
