The Pats scored two short-handed goals in a span of 32 seconds in the second period, jumping out to a 2-1 lead they never relinquished.

Rockets forward Rourke Chartier had the lone Kelowna goal on the night as he continued his torrid scoring pace, scoring his 29th goal of the season in the Rockets 28th game.
