Forest, ON - The Lambton Shore Predators have made it four straight and continue to play some of their best hockey of the season as they push for a playoff spot, earning a 6-2 victory over the LaSalle Vipers Saturday night in Junior B hockey.

Corey Pawley opened the scoring in the first period for the Predators but the Vipers Ryan Speers would respond two minutes later to knot the game at 1-1 after the first twenty minutes.

In the second the Predators would come out and score four goals including two on the power play. Kyle Brothers got his first of the period and would get the helper on Cody Trowell's goal. Kody Ryan would score 26 seconds later to give the Predators a 3-1 lead, while Brothers would add his second goal on the power play of the period to make it a 4-1 lead.

In the third, Eric Noel would chip in a goal for the Vipers, but Trowell would score his second of the game to put Lambton Shores up by four goals, as they cruise to the 6-2 victory.

Justin Tugwell got the start for the Predators and made 22 saves for the victory. Lambton Shores out shot the Vipers 30-23 in the game.

The Predators are now just two points back of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference and will take on London on Wednesday followed by Chatham, the team in front of them, on Saturday night.
