The third period belonged to the Kodiaks, outshooting the Flames 11-6 and scoring two more for the win. Scoring for the Kodiaks were Dayton Spink and Clayton Schroeder (on an empty net), with assists from Thompson and Padgham, and Padgham again, respectively.

Kodiaks Dylan Black and Padgham were the game’s first and third stars, respectively. Black, a 16-year-old rookie from Langley in goal, turned away 36 of the Flames’ 38 shots on his net.

Power plays were five apiece, with the Kodiaks scoring the only goal.
