Quality over quantity.
For the Prince George Spruce Kings that strategy, as unplanned as it was, resulted in two more points in the B.C. Hockey League standings.
Outshot by a wide margin, they were not outscored Saturday night in Langley.
Trailing the Langley Rivermen 1-0 with less than seven minutes to play, the Kings caught a break when 16-year-old centre Fin Williams scored an unassisted shorthanded goal and that defenceman Cole Leal did the rest.
Leal, in his return to the ice after missing four games with a lower-body injury, then scored the go-ahead goal with just 29 seconds left in the third period and the Kings beat the Rivermen 2-1 for their first road victory of the season.
Jett Alexander made 26 saves to earn his second win of the season. The Kings were outshot 27-14. Braedon Fleming took the los in the Langley nets.
The Spruce Kings (2-2-2-0), who lost 6-2 Friday to the Chilliwack Chiefs, conclude their three-game roadtrip Sunday afternoon (3 p.m.) against the Coquitlam Express (3-1-0-0). The Kings and Express are tied for first place in the Mainland Division, each with six points.
