The Steelers kept their 2-1 advantage throughout the scoreless second period, and it wasn’t until 7:27 in the third that the Steelers scored their third goal. The Steelers followed it with another 90 seconds later, before the Kodiaks were able to notch their second and last goal of the night. Scoring at 14:27 was Kodiaks’ Kenny Prato, assisted by Adam Callegari and Stephen Ryan.
The Steelers closed the scoring at 16:49 to end the game in a 5-2 win.
