Exactly 8 minutes later Johnston scored his 12th on the season with Baisov recording his first career OHL point with the lone assist on the goal. Just 4 more minutes later the Spitfires were back on the powerplay again and it was McDonald with his 2nd on the night with both coming on the powerplay. Just like the night previous the Spitfires went up 4-1. Late in the period the Sting scored to make it a 4-2 game going into the 2nd intermission.

In the third period, the Spitfires added goals from Cuylle his team leading 18th and DeAngelis got his 2nd which turned out to be the game winning goal.
