Bakersfield started the second period well and Boyd delivered on the power play when his wrist shot from the right-wing circle beat Eagles G Adam Brown, just :45 seconds into the frame, cutting the deficit in half at 2-1. However, the Eagles would tack on two more to push their lead to 4-1 when F Trent Daavettila (11:27) and Ulanski (13:18) each potted goals to give the Eagles a three-goal lead at the break. They outshot the Condors 18-10.

The Condors fought back to within two when F Daniel Koger took a feed from Boyd and beat Brown at 3:12 of the third period to make it 4-2 Colorado. However, the Eagles would tally a power-play goal from Daavettila at 7:34 and would complete the sweep, 5-2.
