The rebound was found by Cole Maier who scored the eventual game winner and gave the Moose the 3-2 advantage. Midway through the third period, the clubs were playing four-on-four when Kristian Vesalainen added to the Moose lead with a goal assisted by Cameron Schilling and Harkins. Just over three minutes later, Leon Gawanke found the back of the empty net and notched his first professional goal. Berdin collected an assist on Gawanke's goal.
