Again Brookings would take advantage of the power play allowing them to score with 7:30 left in the first period to put them up by 3. The Capitals would be unable to find the back of the net on the power play advantage after a Rangers penalty with 7:09 remaining in the first.

Another coincidental penalty at the 1:55 mark on Rendell for roughing sent him to the locker room early and left five on five hockey. A scuffle in front of the Caps net created a party in both penalty boxes with only 31.2 seconds left in the game. Two Rangers joined Carson Palmer and Ryan Wedin on the slough of penalty to round out the game. Brookings would go home with the win and the final score of 1-8.
