The Coquitlam Express can close out the series in Game 6 against the Langley Rivermen tonight after dropping a 5-2 game on the road on Thursday.

But Coquitlam would struggle to find the net for the rest of the game, with their second goal coming from Zach Hodder of a feed from Adam Rockwood five minutes into the third period.

Meanwhile, the Rivermen kept up their scoring, with goals from Gage Torrel in the first, Tanner Johnson and Tyson Witala in the second and Jackob Reichert in the third.

The series move back to the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex tonight. Puck drops at 7 p.m. For more information go to www.coquitlamexpress.ca.
