Continuing the back-and-forth second period, Orlando's Joshua Winquist capitalized on a loose puck inside the Everblades crease to tie the game up at 2-2.

Orlando took advantage of a power play opportunity to take a 3-2 lead on a shot by Todd Skirving.

The 'Blades would take advantage of a 5-on-3 power play opportunity of their own to tie the game at 3-3 when Stephen MacAulay stabbed a second chance opportunity into the back of the net.

A goal by Joe Cox gave the 'Blades the lead for good, 4-3, with just over three minutes remaining in the game.
