Leafs back on top of Murdoch after scoring narrow win in Spokane
The Nelson Leafs took care of business in a place the Green and White have not had an easy time getting points.
Four different players scored to pace the Leafs to a 4-3 victory over the Spokane Braves in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Sunday in the Lilac City.
Dustin Reimer, Cole Arcuri, Aaron Dunlap and James Sorrey scored for the Leafs.
Marcus Beesley was in goal to register his third win in four games after coming to Nelson in a trade with the Kamloops Storm.
The win allows Nelson to regain sole possession of top spot Murdoch Division, two points ahead of the idle Castlegar Rebels. The Rebels have a game in hand.
Nelson returns to action Friday when Spokane pays a return visit to the NDCC Arena.
The game is the first of a three-game home weekend for the Leafs.
Saturday Nelson hosts Grand Forks before concluding the trio of games Sunday against Revelstoke Grizzlies.
