Shortly after, first-time goal scorer Ian McKinnon and Cameron Hughes would both net one in to cap off a 3-0 first period.

Into the second period, Coachella Valley did not let their foot off the gas pedal with goals from Luke Henman, Cale Fleury, first-time goal scorer Lleyton Roed, and Kole Lind.

Ales Stezka started for the birds and had 27 saves.

The Firebirds improve their record to 43-14-5-4.
