The Pacific Division Series will head back to the Coachella Valley tied 1-1 after the Firebirds came up just short in Game 2 against the Calgary Wranglers. The game ended with a 3-2 loss.

The game started off slow with most of the First Period tied 0-0. The Wranglers got the scoreboard fist with just two minutes left in the first period.

The Firebirds answered right back less than a minute later thanks to a goal by Kole Lind.

Nearly two minutes into the second period, the Wranglers regained the lead. The game stayed 2-1 through the second period.

The Wranglers scored their third goal early in the third period but the Firebirds went out swinging. Gustav "Goose" Olofsson scored his second goal of the Calder Cup Playoffs to make it 3-2.

The good news, the Firebirds got the job done and got a win on the road in the series. The Firebirds will return to Acrisure Arena in Thousand Palms for Game 3 on Monday. You can get tickets to the big game at:
