At 17:54 of the second, Jon Puskar made it 3-0 as he knocked in a rebound on an Eick shot as the Grizzlies came back in transition with Brassard picking up an assist as well.
 
1:35 later with 31 seconds left in the second period, Michael Pelech took a tic-tac-toe pass and scored from the right circle on the power-play as Erik Bradford and Erik Higby picked up assists.
