Rockets begin road trip with 4-3 win

Golden got down early against the Nitehawks Friday but managed to storm back and grab on OT win.

After a lengthy stretch of games in Golden, the Rockets were keen to get on the road, perhaps as a way to avoid some of the distractions that come with playing at home. So far, so good.

After going down by a pair of goals early Friday night against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks, defenceman Nic Noseworthy got Golden on the board with an unassisted goal early in the second. The Hawks responded with a power play goal with eight minutes remaining in the period, but Travis Kelley scored less than three minutes later to put the Rockets back to within one entering the third.

Captain Daniel Dahlin picked an opportune time to notch his first goal of the season, tying things up midway through the frame to send it to overtime.

Zack Finlay provided the OT heroics for the visitors with a goal just over two minutes into the extra period. Braeden Allkins and Nick Hoobanoff each registered assists, with both players finishing the game with two points apiece.

Magnus Viberg got the call in net for the Rockets, registering a sensational 40 saves on 43 shots in the team’s 4-3 win. It will be interesting to see how head coach Ty Davidson divides up the goaltending duties for the rest of the weekend between Viberg and Mitchell Privett. The Rockets will be in Nelson to take on the Leafs tonight, before travelling to Castlegar for a Sunday matinee against the Rebels.
