Rockies come back to tie Border Bruins

Columbia Valley Rockies come from behind to tie Grand Forks 3-3 at the GF Areana.

Jeremy McGregor of the Grand Forks Border Bruins looks to flip the puck past the Columbia Valley Rockies netminder during tonight's game at the GF Arena.

A pair of third period short-handed goals from Ryan Henderson enabled the Columbia Valley Rockies to steal a point in Grand Forks Friday night, forcing a 3-3 tie at GF Arena Friday night.

The Border Bruins led for most of the game behind the continued strong play of veterans Jackson Purvis and Connor Gross.

After a scoreless first period, Purvis opened up the scoring with a power play marker at 14:58 of the second, assisted by Gross and Dakota Kittle.

Bradley Pulombo tied the game for Columbia Valley at 1-1 a short time later.

Cam McLellan gave GF a 2-1 lead with 2:22 left in the second with another Bruins’ power play marker, assisted by Gross and Kittle.

Purvis’ second goal of the game gave the Bruins a commanding 3-1 lead at 11:31 of the third period.

Perhaps the Bruins should have declined the penalties the Rockies picked up late in the third.

The teams played two overtime periods to no avail and settled for the tie.

Dominic Stadnyk was in goal for GF and stopped 31 of 34 shots.

Grand Forks travels to Nelson tonight (Saturday) to face the 4-0 Leafs.

Sunday, the Bruins return to GF and play Spokane Sunday at 2 p.m. in an afternoon tilt.
