The Spokane Chiefs defeated Seattle 4-2 in a Western Hockey League game Friday at Veterans Memorial Arena, extending the Thunderbirds’ losing streak to seven games.

Seattle (7-9-3-0) has lost 10 out of its last 11 games.

Spokane (11-7-1-2) went in front 1-0 11:14 of the first period on a goal by Carter Chorney. Riley Woods had the only assist.

Seattle tied the game 1-1 at 2:32 of the second period on a great individual play by Jared Kaluski while shorthanded. Kaluski blocked a point shot and raced a Spokane defenseman to the puck in the neutral zone. Kaluski muscled past the defenseman along the right boards to get the puck and into the offensive zone. Kaluski stopped up and turned back towards the blue and then turned again back down the wall. Kaluski found Zack Andrusiak charging into the slot with a pass. Andrusiak came in alone on Spokane goalie Dawson Weatherill and beat him through the legs with a backhand shot.

Nolan Reid scored at 1:26 and Adam Beckman scored at 10:50 to give the Chiefs a 3-1 lead in the third period.

Tyler Carpendale cut the Chiefs lead to one goal at 11:49 of the third. Carpendale got control of a loose puck and powered to the Spokane net. Carpendale lifted a backhand shot past Weatherill for his first goal of the season.

The T-Birds went on the power play with 3:24 left in the game. They got several good chances and with 30 seconds left on the power play pulled goalie Liam Hughes for an extra attacker. Just after the power play ended, Reid sent the puck the length of the ice for an empty-net goal to secure the win for the Chiefs.

Hughes finished with 35 saves on 38 shots. Weatherill had 32 saves on 34 shots.
