First star Ty Madden tallied twice for the G-Kings, who overcame a 2-1 first period deficit to make it 3-3 after two, only to have the visitors dominate the third period (12-2 SOG). Braddock Otton took the loss.

On Dec. 11 the Glacier Kings were at the Panorama Recreation Centre where they fell 5-0 to the Peninsula Panthers. The home team led 2-0 after one period and 4-0 after two.
