Junior Bs back in action on Friday night when they host Chilliwack

The Ridge Meadows Flames opened their Junior B hockey regular season with a 4-0 shutout win over the Mission City Outlaws on Friday night, then lost 5-3 in White Rock on Saturday.

Veteran Cam Connolly was perfect in net, stopping all 21 shots he faced.

Theo Kochan, another rookie out of Pitt Meadows, had a goal and an assist.

On Saturday night, the Flames had a 3-1 lead midway through the game, but surrendered a 5-3 loss.

Sniper Jack Foster had a goal and an assist, captain Kordan Kujala scored, and Kochan got his second goal of the young season.
