Erik Miller and Rudolfs Balcers added goals in the second period to build up a 4-0 lead. The Royals responded with a late powerplay goal to make it a 4-1 Blazers lead through two periods.

With the win, the Blazers improve to 40-23-2-4 and win 40 games in a season for the first time since 2012-13.

The Blazers are back home on Saturday night as they host the Vancouver Giants. Game time is 5:00pm at the Sandman Centre.
