Firebirds overcame early deficit for 4-2 win over San Diego Gulls

Not long after NHL legend Wayne Gretzky had dropped the ceremonial puck Sunday inside Acrisure Arena, the Coachella Valley Firebirds found themselves shell-shocked and playing from behind.

It was the first time since Dec. 28 — a span of 10 games — that the Firebirds did not score first. Playing from behind early in their inaugural season in the American Hockey League is not a common experience for Coachella Valley.

But despite falling into a quick deficit, as they have often done in their inaugural season in the American Hockey League, the Firebirds found a way to emerge victorious in a 4-2 win over the San Diego Gulls in front of a crowd of 9,473.

Although Coachella Valley was held without a goal for the majority of two periods, they still have not been shut out in a game this season.
