Peninsula Panthers hockey fans were making a lot of noise at the Panorama Recreation Centre last Friday night after two brothers dominated in a game against the Campbell River Storm.

“It was crazy, absolutely nuts,” said Pete Zubersky, Panthers’ hockey operations boss of the performance of Dane and Logan Gibson.

“I’ve never seen anything like it at any level of hockey, and you (won’t) see it again.”

The brothers took the reins during a five-minute stretch late in the second period last Friday after Cole Golka had scored a first period marker for the Panthers. But the team was still down 3-1 when the brothers stepped in to take control.

Dane scored on the power play to draw the team within one goal midway through the second period. He later collected a rebound off the end wall and quickly tapped it into an open net. He scored again while killing a penalty.

Logan was sent in on a breakaway and roofed a wrist shot over the Storm’s goaltender which was followed by Josh Adkins joining in on the short-handed scoring spree on another breakaway.

Logan added a second short-handed goal in the five-mintue span when Dane intercepted an errant pass near the blue line in the Campbell River zone and fluttered the puck to Logan. He one-timed it past the goalie for four short-handed goals in just over five minutes.

The Panthers won 7-6 that night and again on Sunday night with a 6-5 shootout win over the same Storm. That put the team in a second place tie with the Saanich Braves in their division.

The Panthers are looking for their sixth straight win tonight (Oct. 24) at 7:30 p.m. in Saanich.

The team hosts the Westshore Wolves at Panorama on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m.
