Captain Glenn Gawdin scored twice in the win during a four-point afternoon. He passed Bryan Trottier for sixth on the franchise all-time scoring list with a penalty shot goal, his 302nd career point and then added a shorthanded goal in the second period.

Matteo Gennaro opened the scoring during a two-point outing. Defensemen Sahvan Khaira and Connor Horning also scored.

Stuart Skinner improved to 13-3-1-0 since joining the Broncos with 20 saves for his sixth shutout of the season overall.
