Reed Delainey, a short time later would get his 13th to make it a 3-1 lead for the top ranked North Stars. Corwin Stevely would get the Terriers within 1 as he would take a nice feed in front from Gervais & hammer home his 13th to make it a 3-2 game but thats as close as the Terriers would get as the North Stars would get their 37th win of the season, 3-2.
