Thompson skated from the right point and was denied by Madore at the slot, but Butler followed the play and scored off the rebound and the left doorstep.Greg Burke extended the advantage to 2-0 at 18:38. Brett Kostolansky corralled the puck in the neutral zone and found Burke skating along the left dashers. As he approached the half-boards, Burke fired a shot on net that deflected off Madore's arm inside the right post.The Catamounts rallied to take a 3-2 lead with three goals in the second period. The rally began at 2:46 on a goal by Sebastian Stalberg. Brayden Irwin carried the puck into the right circle and made a centering pass to Colin Vock. Foster stopped that initial shot from the slot, but Stalberg scored off the rebound at the left doorstep.
