The Coachella Valley Firebirds are starting off Pride weekend in dominant fashion

The Coachella Valley Firebirds continued their winning streak, opening their inaugural Pride weekend in dominating fashion Saturday night at Acrisure Arena.

The Firebirds have had the San Jose Barracuda’s number all season and Saturday was no different. They scored twice in the first period to go up 2-0 and then never looked back, recording a shutout and finishing with a 4-0 victory.

It was the seventh straight win for the Firebirds and their 10th in 11 games. Coachella Valley is now 22-6-3 on the season and has taken sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division. Calgary did not play on Saturday, which was tied with them. In that stretch, Coachella Valley has outscored its opponents 44-21.

The Barracuda, an affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, have struggled with the Firebirds this season, losing all four games. Coachella Valley’s dominance may be why there seemed to be some animosity between the two teams as fights and numerous other skirmishes broke out throughout the game.
