Letourneau took a pass in the right circle and immediately sent a snap shot by goaltender Ken Appleby into the net. The goal was Letourneau’s third of the year from Patrick Grasso and Ivan Chukarov at 5:29 of the second and the Thunder took that lead into the third.

Erik Middendorf scored his first professional goal in the third period to give the Thunder a 2-0 lead. Middendorf collected a rebound and sent a shot by the left pad of Appleby at 5:29 of the third period with assists from Brady Fleurent and Wayne Letourneau.
