Dundee were the better team in the middle period, and got themselves back in the game just 1:40 into the period as Brett Steven found the net. They couldn't however find a second until Elgin Pearce's powerplay goal at 46:03 to suddenly. be back within one. Eberle however found the back of Alex Leclerc's net at 51:31 to re-establish the Steeler's two-goal cushion.
