After losing their home-ice advantage of their best-of-seven opening round PJHL playoff series with the Ridge Meadows Flames ,following a 4-3 double overtime loss in game one, the Kodiaks doubled up the Flames 4-2 on Feb. 20 in game two at the Aldergrove Arena.

The series now shifts to Maple Ridge's Planet Ice on Feb. 22 and 23 for games three and four before game five returns to the Aldergrove Arena on Feb. 27.

In game two, Scott McHaffie and Adam Callegari scored less than two minutes apart and Kenny Prato put the home side up 3-0 prior to the first intermission.

Travis Oddy cut the lead to 3-1 after 40 minutes, but Ryan Veillet made it 4-1 with a power-play goal early in the third.

Connor Redmond rounded out the scoring.

The Kodiaks continued their shot barrage on Flames goalie Wesley McLeod, who was forced into making 49 saves on 53 shots. This comes after his game one performance, in which he faced 63 shots, stopping 60.
