The NHL returned to action last Saturday, and that proved a distraction for both the Courtenay Mazda Peewee Chiefs and the Nanaimo Clippers.
The Chiefs were in The Harbour City for a minor hockey exhibition game with the Boatmen. Nanaimo skated to a very uninspired 4-0 win, with both sides focused on something other than the game at hand.
On Sunday afternoon the Chiefs hosted the Saanich Braves. Despite controlling long stretches of the game, the hockey gods did not shine on the Chiefs as they fell 7-2. Despite the lopsided score, the game appeared much closer.
The Courtenay Mazada Chiefs next home action is this Sunday, Jan. 27 at 10:45 a.m. at Sports Centre Arena #1 against Kerry Park.
