Vancouver led 5-2 after the first quarter, but the Rebel rallied in the second quarter, outscoring the Ravens 3-0 to even the game at 5-5 going into the halftime intermission.
But the Ravens took control in the third, scoring three unanswered goals for an 8-5 advantage heading into the final quarter.
Kevin Dostie and Stephen Evans both scored twice for Ottawa, while Brad Self added the other Rebel goal.
