Early in the third period, Kolton Shindle got his second of the game from Joey Moffatt and Lonan Bulger to tie the game up at 2.

The end of the period generated no more goals, but the Wolverines killed off a four minute penalty late in the period to take it to OT.

The Wolverines controlled most of the play in OT, but there was no goals on either side.

But in a shootout, Boston Bird and Joey Moffatt both got a goal, while Brett Mirwald stopped 2 of 3 shots as the Wolverines got the extra point.
