Trail Smoke Eaters down Cowichan Valley Capitals

Three goals in the opening five minutes was all the Trail Smoke Eaters would need as they skated to a 6-2 win over Cowichan Friday.

The Trail Smoke Eaters were running on all cylinders, getting production up and down the lineup as they defeated the Cowichan Valley Capitals 6-2 at the Comnico Arena Friday.

Five Smokie players had two-point nights, and Adam Todd stopped 48 shots and picked up an assist as Trail scored three goals in the first five minutes and never looked back.

Jake Lucchini, Dallas Calvin, Brian Basilico, and Connor Brown-Maloski each counted a goal and an assist on the night, while newly acquired defenceman Griffyn Martin picked up two helpers, and Brandon Volpe and Charlie Zuccarini rounded out the scoring for Trail.

The Smokies hit the road next weekend with games against Powell River, Alberni Valley, and Surrey.
