Coachella Valley opened the Pacific Division finals by handing Ontario its very first loss of the postseason, a 3-2 choice at Acrisure Arena on Wednesday night.

The Firebirds host Game 2 of the best-of-five series on Friday.

Max McCormick and Devin Shore, Coachella Valley’s leading scorers with 4 points each in their department semifinal series win over Calgary, scored 62 seconds apart late in the very first duration to turn an early 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 Firebirds lead.

Jimmy Schuldt included his very first objective of these playoffs throughout the 2nd duration, and Chris Driedger made 13 of his 29 conserves in the last frame as Coachella Valley won its 4th successive video game.

Andre Lee and Samuel Fagemo scored for the Reign, who were coming off sweeps of Bakersfield and Abbotsford in their very first 2 series.
