The Spokane Chiefs' three-game win streak was snapped Saturday night with a loss in the first game on their home ice.

The Chiefs' 2-1 loss to the visiting Kootenay ICE, their first of the young season, left Spokane with a 3-1 record. The Chiefs had rallied from 4-0 and 5-2 deficits to stun the ICE 6-5 on Rykr Cole's overtime goal Friday night in Cranbrook, British Columbia.

Spokane's only goal in Saturday's home opener came on a second-period deflection. Forward Hayden Ostir tipped in Ty Smith's shot from the point, but the ICE had already scored what would be the winning goal earlier in the period, as Kootenay forward Peyton Krebs beat goalie Dawson Weatherill on the rebound after the puck popped out of his glove.

The Chiefs were outshot 23 to 17 and squandered all six of their power-play opportunities. They were three for three on the penalty kill. Spokane hosts the Portland Winterhawks on Friday, Oct. 6; the puck drops at 7:05 pm. (MITCH RYALS)
