The visitors were back on level terms early in the second period as Neil Clark converted at 21.37. The Steel men then took the lead with a powerplay goal from Colt King at 34.09.

Into the third period and Stingrays player/coach Sylvain Clouiter had tied the game at two-apiece with a powerplay goal at 55.21.

With the game heading towards the buzzer and with both teams looking to take a point each up stepped Neil Clark with his second of the game at 59.50 to give Steelers both points.
