The Black Bears took the lead on a powerplay goal in the third from defenseman Kevin Scott to make it 3-2. But late in the game with the goaltender pulled, the Nordiques were able to tie it with 1:13 to go. Maine forward Jonny Meiers tipped home a point shot from defenseman Mathew Connor to make it 3-3. The game went to overtime but went scoreless, leading to the shootout. And in round six, Nordiques' forward Tristan Fasig scored the game-deciding goal to send Maine home with a 4-3 win.
