Flames lose both Winter Classic games

Ridge Meadows back home Friday, host all-star game Monday

The Pacific Junior Hockey League’s Winter Classic event at Minoru Arena in Richmond was not kind to the Ridge Meadows Flames, as they dropped both of their games in the Pacific Junior Hockey League showcase event.

On Friday, the Flames lost a key conference matchup against the Langley Trappers by a score of 4-1. Eric Bourhill got the only goal for Ridge.

On Saturday, the Flames lost to another Harold Brittain Conference rival, the first-place Abbotsford Pilots, by a score of 3-1. The shot clock had the Pilots ahead 37-16 in that game. Tetsuya Prior scored for the Flames.

The Flames now sit behind those two teams in the conference standings, with a record of 17-14-0-3.

Their power play let them down, going 0-for-5 in both games in the Winter Classic.

The Flames are back in action on Tuesday night, taking on the Delta Ice Hawks.

They will be back on home ice on Friday, Jan. 11 at Cam Neely Arena, when they host the Grandview Steelers.

On Jan. 14, Cam Neely Arena will be host to the league all star game.
