The Wings seized the momentum from the very beginning as just :32 seconds into the game, Wings forward Carter Roo converted on a rebound after a 2 on 1 to put Aberdeen ahead 1-0. After a scoreless 2nd period, the Wings and Roo struck again quickly in the 3rd period as just :18 seconds into the period, Roo found himself in on a breakaway where he then sniped a shot over the left shoulder of Rebels goalie Mareks Mitens. However, the Rebels fought back right away as just over a minute later Dustin Manz plucked home a rebound after a sprawling save by Wings goalie Forbes Ploszaj to make the score, 2-1.
