After a scoreless first period, which included an early-game 5-on-3 penalty kill for the Squirrels, Wolfe Pack struck first, before Jon Danziger (a crash-the-net goal), Brent Machado (a controversial PP goal) and Terry Young (a tic-tac-toe passing goal) scored to give the Squirrels a 3-1 lead heading into the third period.
