The Thunder took the lead back at 16:11 of the first period as Travis Broughman beat Dryden McKay from the left circle on a wrist shot. Shane Harper and Patrick Grasso were awarded the assists and Adirondack took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

Erik Middendorf added to the lead on the power play at 9:40 of the second. Tristan Thompson and Tristan Ashbrook were given the assists on Middendorf’s 17th of the season. The goal gave the Thunder a 4-1 lead and forced a goaltending change for the Growlers.
