Devon Palmer’s goal with less than two minutes to play in overtime completed a Prince Rupert Rampage comeback and a 6-5 win over the Kitimat Ice Demons in CIHL action on Saturday in Kitimat.
Rampage centre Kory Movold picked up a hat trick scoring his third goal with about three minutes to play in regulation to send the game into overtime.
Twice Movold had scored go-ahead goals in the second and third periods only to have the Ice Demons come back to take the lead in a see-saw affair.
The Rampage improved to w-6 on the season after the Ice Demons successfully appealed a forfeit for playing a suspended player..
