Vanroboys' three-point night sparks Spruce Kings

Lucas Vanroboys scored two goals and added an assists while Logan Neaton made 17 saves Saturday for his fifth shutout of the season to help the Prince George Spruce Kings to a 6-0 win over the Langley Rivermen.
Spencer DenBeste scored his first goal as a Spruce King since being acquired in December from the Springfield Junior Blues of the NAHL. 
The 19-year-old Lake Superior State University recruit from Marquette, Mich., made it a 4-0 game in the second period after Ben Brar, Liam Watson-Brawn and Corey Cunningham chased Rivermen goalie Shane Battler from the game after he allowed three goals on 15 shots. Braedon Fleming replaced Battler in goal and gave up three goals on 10 shots in 30:11 of playing time.  
Patrick Cozzi, the game's first star, and Dustin Manz each has two assists.
The Kings outshot the Rivermen 25-17.
It was the second win of the weekend for the Spruce Kings on their three-game tour of the B.C. Hockey League's Mainland Division. They started with a 4-2 win Friday in Coquitlam.
The Kings visit Surrey to play the last-place Eagles Sunday afternoon.
The win left the Spruce Kings (32-12-1-5) seven points behind the league-leading Chilliwack Chiefs (40-12-1-0) who beat Surrey 4-1 Saturday in Chilliwack. 
The Chiefs have won eight straight and 16 of their last 18 games. They have five games left, three against the Spruce Kings, who have six regular-season games to play.
