Just 1:36 later Keaton Mastrodonato (14th) would cash in on the power-play to tie the game at 3-3. Seamus Donohue from the far half-wall fed Zane Franklin inside the far circle. From there Franklin fed Mastrodonato with a behind the back, back-hand pass where Mastrodonato let a one timer go into the top right corner.
