Zeros remained on the scoreboard after the opening 20 minutes before Jeff Shipton opened the scoring in the second frame.

As play began in the third, the Rangers came out strong and captured the lead with two goals in a 20 second span early on, and added an insurance goal with just over three minutes remaining to take the win.

The Flyers will be looking to cut their deficit in half when the series moves back to Fort St. John for game three on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
