VANCOUVER--The Vancouver Ravens went on an 11-goal third-quarter scoring spree to blow past the Ottawa Rebel 21-10 in front of a Saturday afternoon crowd of 9,613 at GM Place.

Chris Gill scored five goals -- four of them in the critical third stanza -- and assisted on five more to fuel the late-developing rout. Ryan O'Connor picked up four of his seven assists in the third quarter, and two more in the fourth.

The Rebel, mired in an eight-game losing streak, scored the first three goals of the game, and held a 5-3 lead at halftime. However, the lead vanished within a furious 40-second span at the top of the third quarter. Gill pulled the Ravens within a goal at the 4:06 mark, and rookie Michael Law equalized 13 seconds later. Chris Prat, who finished with three goals and seven assists, gave the Ravens their first lead at 4:46.

After Ottawa re-tied the score with Steve Evans' power play goal, Vancouver put the game away with eight unanswered tallies. Gill scored three times during the decisive run, and assisted on rookie Peter Morgan's second goal of the period. Tyson Leies, Kevin Brunsch and Matt Dwane closed out the period, in which the Ravens outshot Ottawa 23-4.

The Ravens scored seven more times during the final 15 minutes. The Rebel managed four more tallies, including power play goals by Ryan Painter (2) and Jamie Roy.

Painter powered the Rebel offense with five goals and three assists, while Steve Evans and Chris Konopliff each scored two goals and dished up two more. Mike Benedict assisted on five tallies.
