The Terriers would strike first at the 12:11 mark of the 1st as Brandon Sookro would bang home his team leading 23rd of the season to give them an early 1-0 lead. The Mils would even it up 4 minutes later as Keegan Milligan would take a nice cross ice feed and go top shelf on Jakob Severson for his 8th to tie things up at 1-1 after 20 minutes.
After a scoreless 2nd period, the Mils would grab their first lead at 6:18 of the 3rd as Cole Filler would back home his 12th of the season to give the home team a 2-1 advantage. It would stay like that until 1:32 remaining as Terrier Co-Captain Corwin Stevely would sneak one through Brandon Wells to give the visitors the equalizer at 2-2.
After overtime solved nothing, the two teams would head to the shootout where only 1 of the 6 combined shooters would score and that would be Cole Filler (pictured above) on a nice move to give the Mils their 15th win of the season a 3-2 decision.
Brandon Wells got his 11th victory of the season for the Mils stopping 31 of 33 shots while Terrier net minder Jakob Severson made 24 saves in the loss.
