The Kodiaks opened the scoring at 2:56 in the second period, by Jacob Dunlop, assisted by Joshua Poitras and Brandon Dolby. However, the Pilots scored twice late that period to go up 2-1 at the start of the third period.

Kodiak Jeremy Lagler scored the equalizer early in the second on a power play at 1:13, assisted by Adam Callegari and Stephen Ryan.
