Powers increased the lead with a one-timer at 7:29 and Gionta netted the third goal of the period on a breakaway at 10:35. Twelve seconds later Powers scored his second goal of the period on a two-on-one break away.
The Eagles increased their lead to 6-0 in the second period with power-play goals by Mike Mottau at 4:22 and Chris Masters at 5:43.
Marty Reasoner and Matt Mulhern each notched a power-play goal in the third period to round out the Eagles' scoring.
