Shane Kumar scored once for the North Delta Devils in a 4-2 loss to the Port Moody Panthers Thursday night.

Two more losses for Devils

Junior B team falls to Port Moody, North Vancouver

A losing streak that has reached four games has put the North Delta Devils in a huge hole in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.

The Devils dropped a 4-2 decision to the league’s weakest team on Halloween night, then were blanked on home ice by the team they were chasing for a playoff berth in the Tom Shaw Conference.

North Delta is now at 4-11-1 (won-lost-tied), and are in the conference basement, eight points behind the fourth-place Grandview Steelers.

In Port Moody to play the Panthers Thursday, they outshot the home side 44-26, but lost the special teams battle and dropped a decision to a Port Moody team which had just three victories in 17 stars.

The Devils led 1-0 after 20 minutes on a goal from Shane Kumar. The Panthers sandwiched a pair of powerplay goals around a North Delta tally from Nyshan Basra to leave the teams tied 2-2 after two periods.

Port Moody netted the winning goal with four minutes to play then added another into the empty net.

North Delta was scoreless on two powerplay chances, while the Panthers were two-for-six.

Nicholas Clark was on goal for the Devils, making 22 saves on 25 shots.

Against the Wolf Pack Saturday at home in the Sungod Arena, North Delta was facing off against a team tied for fourth place in the Tom Shaw Conference.

North Vancouver directed 48 shots at the Devils goal, and led 1-0 and 4-0 at the period breaks. North Delta was zero-for-five on the powerplay, while the Wolf Pack went two-for-10.

Two second-place teams are on the schedule for North Delta this week.

The Devils were in Richmond last night for a game with the 8-3-1-3 (won-lost-overtime loss-tied) Richmond Sockeyes, then will host the 10-4-0-1 Aldergrove Kodiaks of the Harold Brittain Conference Saturday at 7:15 p.m. in the Sungod Arena.
