The Beast took a 3-1 lead into their dressing room after 20 minutes of play and were also ahead in the shots department by a count of 13-4.
The second period was a back-and-forth affair that saw both teams pot some goals.
It was the Beast continuing their onslaught to begin, as Jordan Henry sent a wicked shot from the point into the back of the Adirondack net. That gave the Beast a 4-1 lead at 6:09.
Beauchemin followed that up with a gorgeous snipe of his own to put the Beast ahead 5-1 at 7:00. It was the forward's second of the contest.
Adirondack fought back and potted a power play marker off the stick of Cullen Bradshaw. That made it 5-2 Brampton at 12:32.
A penalty-filled second would finish with the Beast ahead by a score of 5-2 but trailing in shots by a count of 19-16.

They were rewarded with a goal from Shane Conacher to make it 5-3 Brampton at 14:56.
The Beast got back on their horse and were able to power through the rest of the period.
Adirondack pulled their goalie in favour of an extra attacker, but Nathan Todd got a hold of the puck and air mailed it all the way down the ice into the empty net for the sixth tally of the day.
Todd's goal also means that every fan in attendance went home with a free Big Mac, courtesy of McDonald's.
Paterson was credited with the win after making 27 saves on 30 shots. Schierhorn records the loss after giving up five goals and being pulled in the second frame.
