Brad Gehl scored twice in the final minute of both the first and second periods, his second of the game turned out to be the winner as the Grizzlies knocked off the Express 3-2 Sunday afternoon.

It was pink in the rink night for the Express who wore special jerseys to help support breast cancer research.

Mitch Nardi opened the scoring for the Express blasting home a one timer on a 5 on powerplay.

Gehl scored his first goal in the final minute of the first period on the powerplay when he banged home a rebound past Khaleed Devji who was swimming in his crease.

Jarryd Ten Vaanholt gave Victoria their first lead when he sniped a great shot over the shoulder of Devji in the second period.

Gehl's second goal came from the right boards in the final minute of the second period. He fired the puck at the net and it tipped off Malcom Mckinney and past Devji to give the Grizzlies a 3-1 lead going to the third.

Alex Petan pulled the Express back within one in the third period, but that's as close as the Express would come.

Grizzlies goaltender Jamie Tucker had a strong game turing aside 35 of 37 Express shots.

The Express finish their 4 game in 5 day week with a 2-2 record.
