In Game 2, the Chinooks put on an absolute clinic, posting an astounding 12-2 win against the Cochrane Rockies.

The Chinooks came out of the gate red-hot with a three-goal first period. The team continued to pile on the offence from there, scoring five goals in the second period and four in the third.
