The best player on the team is out with an injury so Danny will be starting at the next game. Bonnie and Tucker know the team won’t win without Gustav because Danny isn’t a very good athlete and he’s still upset about Riley. They decide to bet against the Rangers in order to win money and pay off Bonnie’s credit card debt. At first Bonnie feels guilty but when the Rangers lose, she can’t help but celebrate. Riley and Ben are both overwhelmed with the people they are dating so they decide to form a plan and work together in order to get out of their respective relationships. Their plan is to make each other look bad so that Ms. Gilcrest and Ross will want to break up with them.

When Danny hurts his wrist at practice, Bonnie and Tucker place yet another bet. Since the first and second string players are out, they are sure the Rangers will lose again. Riley and Ben’s plan fails when they both get charmed by the other person’s significant other. When Danny tells Tucker and Bonnie that the team doctor cleared him and Gustav to play in the game, they freak out and form a new plan to sabotage the team. Tucker keeps reminding Danny of Riley in a sad attempt to psych him out before the game while Bonnie kidnaps Gustav.

Riley and Ben take Ross and Ms. Gilcrest to the hockey game and plan to break up with them there. They both struggle to actually go through with the break up and end up chickening out. Riley pulls Ben aside to talk and they come up with a new plan to kiss in front of Ross and Ms. Gilcrest to make them think they are back together. The plan fails as usual and they only person distracted by the kiss is Danny. Then an image of Ms. Gilcrest and Ross kissing pops up on the kiss cam and finally Ben and Riley’s prayers have been answered. Danny is so excited that Ross is kissing someone other than Riley and suddenly starts playing better. He scores goal after goal while Tucker and Bonnie get more and more nervous. Riley and Ben pretend to be upset about Ross and Ms. Gilcrest. They both apologize to Ben and Riley and explain that they just had a connection.

Riley and Ben celebrate their loss while the Rangers celebrate a big win!
