But Gavin Hayes would score his second of the game about midway through the third period to give Flint the win.

The Firebirds ended up outshooting the Rangers 43-25. Kitchener also with the man advantage, going 0 for 6 on the power play.

Kitchener started the weekend with a 5-4 victory in Guelph on Friday, then picked up a 4-3 overtime win against the Knights in London on Saturday afternoon.
