Power Outage Sends Fans Home as Kings-Grads Game is Suspended.
It wasn't the Pembroke Lumber Kings night and then the lights went out. With the Kings trailing the Navan Grads 3-0 after two periods, the Pembroke Memorial Centre went dark for about ten seconds before the building's emergency lighting kicked in. The game had to be suspended when it became clear the outage was affecting all of Pembroke's downtown.
The Kings next game is on Sunday, March 3rd when they host the Kemptville 73's, one of the teams they are chasing for a playoff spot. Game time will be 7 p.m. at the PMC.
Lumber Kings Edge Raiders 3-2 to Inch Closer to Playoff Spot
Ryan Parent scored midway through the third period to snap a 2-2 tie and lift the Pembroke Lumber Kings to a 3-2 win over the visiting Nepean Raiders. The win pulled the Kings to within one point of the final playoff spot in the Central Canada Hockey League. The Kings have 46 points and four games in hand on the Carleton Place Canadians who are holding down the last post-season spot.
The Kings also got goals from Josh Fortier and Cam Hicklin who leads the team in goals with 23 markers on the season. The Kings now face the number one team in the league, the Navan Grads on Sunday, February 25th at 7 p.m.
