Colby Winia scored twice and Blaine Krona added one more for Castlegar (11-21-1).

Nelson opened the game with four straight goals within the first 10 minutes. Winia broke the streak with a goal, but from then on it was all Nelson until Krona and Winia added two more goals in the final two minutes of regulation.

The Leafs are back on home ice Friday against the Kimberley Dynamiters.
