In the second period the Flyers increased their lead to 6-2, and closed out the third by adding another two goals on the way to the victory.

Scoring for the Flyers were Joey Massingham (2), Jeff Shipton, Dylan Wellard, Brennan Giroux, and Taylor Greatrex. Greatrex added another three assists for a six point night.

The Flyers will take on the Spirit River Rangers in the opening round of the NPHL playoffs. The series is expected to begin February 17, however a full schedule of the dates and times for the other games has yet to be released.
