The Kelowna Rockets let yet another two points slip away Friday as they saw their five game winning streak come to an end in Kennewick, Washington.
The Tri-City Americans scored three unanswered goals in the final period Friday in a 3-2 victory over the Rockets.
It's the fourth time this season the Rockets have squandered a third period lead.
Tri-City tied the game at 2-2 with a pair of goals 2:31 apart early in the third period.
The tying goal came just seconds before Madison Bowey was set to leave the penalty box.
Justin Feser scored the game winner with a little more than five minutes remaining in regulation time.
The Rockets were unable to get the equalizer.
After a scoreless first period in which the Rockets outshot Tri-City 16-9, Ryan Olsen and Myles Bell connected with second period markers to stake the Rockets to a 2-0 lead.
Kelowna held a 30 14 edge in shots through 40 minutes.
Despite also holding an edge on the shot clock in the third the Rockets were unable to add to their lead.
Kelowna outshot Tri-City 43-22.
Jordon Cooke, who missed the last three games with an upper body injury suffered in practice returned between the pipes for the Rockets.
It was a relatively tame game with only five minor penalties called throughout the course of the game. Tri-City went 1-2 on the power-play while the Rockets were 0-3 with the man advantage.
The same two teams face each other Saturday night in Tri-City.
