The goal was Stockdale’s third of the year from Lamppa 9:47 into the game.

Maine took a 2-0 lead while shorthanded as Alex Kile took the puck in all alone down the left side and sent a wrist shot into the net for his 35th goal of the year. Kile’s goal came 16:42 of the first period, unassisted, and the Thunder trailed by two after 20 minutes of play.

Wyllum Deveaux gave the Mariners a 3-0 lead just 17 seconds into the second period after stealing the puck int eh offensive zone and sending a snap shot past Isaac Poulter. The goal was Deveaux’s 13th of the season, unassisted.

Adirondack answered back shortly after as Shane Harper scored his 18th of the year after a steal in the offensive zone by Tristan Ashbrook. Along the right wall, Ashbrook stole the puck and set up Harper and he beat goaltender Shane Starrett and the Thunder trailed 3-1. The goal came at 9:50 of the second period and the Mariners took the two-goal lead into the third.

The Thunder rattled off three goals in the third period to take a one-goal lead. Tristan Ashbrook started the comeback just 57 seconds into the third period as he put in a Shane Harper pass and Adirondack trailed 3-2.
