The Clippers winning streak is up to four games after a 4-1 win over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Saturday.
Even though it was the Bulldogs who were pressing early, Nanaimo would lead 3-0 before the first period was over.
Alberni Valley was buzzing until a Clipper power play turned the tide mid way through the period.
Jake Harris scored his BCHL best eighth power play goal to open the scoring, and Brad Belisle added the 2-0 goal less than a minute later.
Before the game was 15 minutes old Vincent Millette circled the offensive zone and put the road team up by three.
Jake Harris snapped a shot behind John Hawthorne to give the Clippers a 4-0 lead in the second period and Nanaimo never looked back.
Taz Burman’s shutout bid was ended late in the third on a shot from the right side by Keaton Mastrodonato, but the Clippers recorded the win – their third in four games against the Bulldogs this year.
The final shots were 46-38 for Nanaimo with the Clippers going 1/5 on the man advantage and the Bulldogs finishing 0/2.
