It wasn’t until mid-way through the third period that Rochester answered with their second goal to take a 2-1 lead with only half of a period remaining. With about four minutes left in regulation, the Chill were able to put together a power-play goal to stay alive. The game-tying goal came from Dylan Dent with assists from Marco Escobar and Sam VanderHoeven. After regulation, the two teams found themselves in a 2-2 tie.
