The Clippers dropped their games to Victoria, Powell River, and Salmon Arm last week – falling just short in those contests.
On Tuesday Victoria broke a 3-3 tie late in the second period and went on to a 6-3 win.
Then on Saturday their game against the Kings was tied 3-3 into the third period before Powell River scored the game winner on the man advantage and won 5-3.
Sunday’s game versus Salmon Arm didn’t start well with Nanaimo getting down 3-0.
But a major comeback in the third period with the Clippers down 5-2 ended one goal shy.
Tristan Crozier and Parker Colley led the Clippers offense for the week.
Both had five points and scored a point in every game Nanaimo played.
This week the Clippers visit Coquitlam Friday, Wenatchee Saturday and Surrey on Sunday.
Nanaimo has a win over the Express, and a tie versus Wenatchee already this season.
Surrey is the only team in the BCHL that they haven’t faced.
Sunday’s game will open the season series, and the Clippers and Eagles will face off in the final game of the regular season at Frank Crane Arena.
