After a scoreless 1st period, Jared Legien (pictured above) would give the Terriers a 1-0 lead 10:25 into the 2nd as he would go top shelf on Colby Entz for his 22nd of the season to give the visitors an early lead. Legien would do it again just 2:27 later as he would sneak it through the short side of Entz for his 2nd of the night and 23rd of the season to make it a 2 goal lead. Shane Sherban would add onto the lead with just under a minute to go in the middle frame as he would sneak home his 7th of the campaign to make it a 3-0 Terrier lead after 40 minutes.
The Mils would add one early in the 3rd as Eric Soar would put home his 3rd of the season on the PP for Melville but thats as close as they would get as the Terriers would hold on for the 2 goal win.
