Jared Scott (12) opened the scoring, followed by a power-play strike from Kyle Schroeder (7) just over three minutes later to make the score 2-0 after the first period.

The second period was scoreless as both netminders settled in and held it at a 2-0 score into the third period.

Krivtsov buried a one-timer off a pass from Ryan Johnson. Robert Hyde got the second assist in his return from injury.

One minute and forty-three seconds after the Hat Tricks cut the lead to one, Northeast executed a gorgeous passing play that resulted in a Matt Despirit (2) goal to regain the two-goal lead.
