    Erik Benoit scores twice as Kootenay beats Red Deer 3-2 for fifth straight win

    CRANBROOK, B.C. - Erik Benoit scored two goals in the third period for the Kootenay Ice in a 3-2 win over the Red Deer Rebels in Western Hockey League action Sunday.

    Kootenay has now won a season-high five games in a row, the team's longest winning streak since a run of six straight in November 2011.

    Sam Reinhart, who tied the game at one with less than one second left in the second period on a power-play goal, also scored for the Ice (15-24-1).

    Turner Elson and Matt Bellerive replied for the Rebels (23-17-4).

    Elson opened the scoring in the second with a long shot that beat Mackenzie Skapski.

    After Reinhart tied the game, Benoit scored at 10:44 and 14:14 for a 3-1 Kootenay lead.

    Bellerive got Red Deer within one with a goal at 16:32 that eventually ended the scoring.

    Skapski finished with 21 saves, while at the other end Bolton Pouliot stopped 45 shots.
