Burrards offence Andrew Murphy draws double coverage in a victory over the Coquitlam Adanacs on Tuesday at Planet Ice. He scored twice in the game.

The Maple Ridge Burrards are now 7-7 and sitting in third place in the league standings, vaulting up after having won Tuesday night and getting a loss turned into a win on appeal.

Tuesday the Burrards got their fifth straight win 11-6 over the Coquitlam Adanacs.

They also had an 11-10 loss to New Westminster on July 9 overturned, after the Salmonbellies dressed an ineligible player.

Including the forfeit, that makes it five straight wins for the Burrards.

On Tuesday night, Dan Taylor was the game’s first star, as the Albertan import had six assists.

His 35 helpers are third in the WLA, but he has played four fewer games than the two players ahead of him, and is on a league-leading pace.

Ben McIntosh had two goals and three assists, Mike Mallory two goals and two assists, Jarret Davis two goals and an assist, and Riley Loewen a goal and two assists. Other scorers were Andrew Murphy with two goals, and Dayne Michaud and Mike Krgovich with one apiece.

Carson Michaud had 30 saves on 36 shots, and the backup goaltender improved his record to four wins and a loss while filling in for injured starter Frankie Scigliano.

“He’s keeping up in games, and Frankie will be back in a week or two,” said general manager Daren Fridge.

Michaud’s performance gives the Burrards enviable goaltending, as half of a tandem that includes Scigliano – the 2014 WLA Rookie of the Year and Goaltender of the Year.

The Burrards have just four games left on the regular season schedule. They are in Nanaimo on Sunday, and their final home game of the pre-playoffs campaign will be at Planet Ice on Thursday at 7:45 p.m.

It will be against the Salmonbellies, who are now 7-6, and a win could put the Burrards into second place.
