Before the 2nd period buzzer went off, Millionaire captain Zach Cain regained their one goal lead heading into the intermission, with his team leading 10th of the season as he batted one home off a big bounce from the lively end boards.

Ryley Morgan though early in third scored the Ice Wolves' 2nd powerplay goal of the night banking it off a Mils defender in front to knot the game back up at 3-3. But Cooper Chisholm jammed home the eventual game just 3:38 later to make it 4-3 before Moosomin's Kayden Skulmoski iced into the empty net to seal the victory.
