In the second game, Prince Rupert took another early lead as defenceman Mitch Mann scored a goal to give his team a 1-0 advantage at the end of the first period. The tri-cities pushed back in the second period to take a 3-2 lead into the dressing room, leaving them looking tired and disheartened. The Seawolves were able to get their game back on track in the third period but could not find a way to score the tying goal.
