The Kelowna Rockets managed to salvage something from an otherwise forgettable weekend.
The Rockets scored three times in less than four minutes Sunday and hung on for a 3-2 victory in Everett.
It was the Rockets third game in three nights after back-to-back losses on home ice to the Portland Winterhawks.
Colton Sissons and Ryan Olsen both connected on five-on-three man advantages 52 seconds apart before JT Barnett made it 3-0 just seconds after another Everett penalty had expired.
Everett fought back in the second with a pair of power-play goals of their own.
Ty Mappin got the Silvertips on the board when the Rockets were two men down early in the second before Manraj Hayer cut the deficit to one on a five-on-four power-play.
Neither team was able to light the lamp the rest of the way.
Myles Bell, benched in the third period of Saturday night's 5-1 loss to Portland, obviously got the message assisting on all three Rockets goals.
The win snapped Kelowna's season long three game losing streak and increases their lead atop the BC Division to seven points over the charging Kamloops Blazers.
Kamloops also hold a game in hand.
The Rockets get a few days off before embarking on another three game weekend.
Kelowna host Everett Thursday, travel to Kamloops Friday and host the Blazers back at Prospera Place Saturday.
