At 4:54, Steelheads forward Tanner Froese fed forward Spencer Naas in a 2-on-1 rush for an open one-time shot in the left circle to take back the lead, 3-2. Steelheads defenseman Clint Lewis followed up with a wrist shot from the blue line that skimmed through traffic at 8:23 to double the advantage, 4-2. Then, at 9:15, Steelheads defenseman Nolan Gluchowski made quick work of the Utah defense by handling through two players then the netminder to triple the lead at 5-2. The Grizzlies came back with two goals at 16:38 from forward Joey Raats then another by Herbert on the power play at 19:15 to cut the lead to one, 5-4.
