The Terriers would make it 5-2 early in the final frame as their top ranked power play would go to work as Reid Anderson's nice low shot would beat a screened Fuhr for his 3rd of the season to give the Terriers a 5-2 lead. But the Bruins would make things very interesting in the 3rd as Keegan Allison would grab his 2nd of the night with just under 7 minutes remaining to cut the Bruins within 2 at 5-3. With 49 seconds left Braden Oleksyn would pick up a loose puck from a scramble and would shelf it for his 8th to make it a 1 goal game at 5-4.
