Caps’ top defensive prospect Madison Bowey was the hero in game four of the Kelowna Rockets’ first round WHL playoff series against the Tri-City Americans. Late in the second period, the Americans took a 4-1 lead with what looked like a back-breaking shorthanded goal. It was at that point the Rockets, fueled by Bowey, managed to turn the game around and sweep the series.
Less than a minute after the Americans’ shortie, Bowey responded with a power-play goal of his own. Bowey’s long-range shot bounced off the glove of Eric Comrie and into the net.
Thirty-six seconds later, Rourke Chartier brought Kelowna to just a one-goal deficit. Early in the third, Bowey joined the rush and finished the play, tying the game at four.
The game-winner was scored by Gage Quinney on the 19th minute of the overtime on Kelowna’s 71st shot on goal in the game.
Bowey had three goals and two assists in the series. The Rockets were seeded first in the WHL West guaranteeing them the home ice advantage at least until the league finals.
