Holmberg also netted an assist on the goal.

Carter Proft's first goal of the year at 11:49 of the second put the Chiefs up 4-1, but Victoria would score just 45 seconds later to cut the lead to 4-2 after two. Holmberg would score his second of the night from Aviani at 8:38 of the third to make it 5-2 Spokane. Adam Helewka would net his first of the season on the power play at 13:02 to cap the scoring.
