Not too long after the first goal William Eklund tacked on to the lead with his fourth goal of the season. Assisting on the goal was both Andrew Agozzino and Montana Onyebuchi.
After a brief break in the offense a shorthanded opportunity presented itself for Artemi Kniazev and he capitalized on it. With Tristen Robins and Ryan Merkley getting the assists.
With the lead up to 3-0 Thomas Bordeleau saw fit to add on to it with his fifth goal of the season. Robins and Eklund both got assists on the goal.
