Myles Bell, with his team leading fourth goal of the season, Filip Vasko and Tyson Baillie also scored for the Rockets, who led 2-0 after two periods of play but blew the game open with five third period goals.

The Rockets were 2-for-5 on the power play while holding Vancouver to an 0-for-5 night with the man advantage.

The Rockets now head for Prince George for a pair of weekend games against the Cougars. Kelowna and Prince George will play Friday and Saturday at the CN Centre.

The Rockets return to Prospera Place next Wednesday when they play host to the Spokane Chiefs.
