The Redhawks added two more goals in the second period making it 3-1 before Joe Rehkamp scored making it a one-goal game again. Miami added another goal in the first half of the third period to make it a 4-2 game with just under fifteen minutes to play. Nic Dowd added a power play goal to make things closer with one minute and eight seconds remaining.
