Wranglers force fifth game with 1-0 squeaker over Firebirds in Palm Springs

With their season on the line, the Calgary Wranglers managed to score a single goal Wednesday night – and it was enough to defeat the Coachella Valley Firebirds 1-0.

Cole Schwindt scored on a power play in the second period and Dustin Wolf stopped 27 shots in goal to pick up the shutout, as the Wranglers forced a deciding fifth game in Palm Springs Friday night.

The victory came two days after the Wranglers lost a heartbreaking Game 3 in triple overtime, losing 3-2 to the Firebirds.

Puck drop for Friday's deciding game is 8 p.m.
