Kodiaks Jonathan Philley, Spencer McHaffie and Stephen Ryan each scored one apiece in the second.

Kodiaks Prato and Adam Callegari scored two more in the third before Devils’ Joshua Trisevic closed the scoring in the third.

Kodiaks’ keeper Tate Sproxton stopped all but two of the Devils’ 35 shots for the game’s third star, while first and second stars went to Prato and Callegari, respectively.

The Kodiaks had 41 shots on net. They scored on one of three power plays while the Devils scored on one of five.
