On Friday, the Kamloops Blazers’ comeback attempt against the Kelowna Rockets fell just short.
A night later, the Blazers weren’t to be denied.
Ryan Rehill scored with just 4.8 seconds remaining in the third period to boost Kamloops to a 5-4 victory over the Rockets in Game 2 of their WHL playoff series at Prospera Place.
With the Blazers’ net empty and Kamloops trailing 4-3 late in the third, Colin Shirley knotted the game up with his second of the series at 19:29.
Twenty-six seconds later, Rehill buried his second of the night behind Kelowna netminder Michael Herringer to tie the best-of-seven series 1-1.
Tomas Soustal scored twice, while Rourke Chartier and Rodney Southam, with a shorthanded goal, also tallied for Kelowna.
The goaltenders, Herringer and ConnoR Ingram, each faced 44 shots.
Game 3 is set for Tuesday night in Kamloops.
