Tri City would tie the game at 2 on an Adam Hughesman power play goal at 7:37. The Chiefs regained the lead on Dominick Uher's shorthanded tally from Steve Kuhn at 11:08. It was Uher's second shorthanded goal of the playoffs and second goal in as many games in the series. Tri City would pull back even at 3 on a Mitch Topping goal at 11:53. The Americans then scored the eventual game winner from Justin Hamonic at 16:44 of the second.

Tri City capped the scoring with an empty netter with 1 minute left to give the Americans the first multi goal win of the series.
