The Bulls were the aggressor from the start of the game and determined not to have a repeat from the night before. Just over seven minutes into the game Bulls defenseman Joe Grabowski fired a shot from the point that found its way through traffic to beat Wild goaltender Robert Nichols on the power play to give Amarillo a 1-0 lead. The Bulls took a 2-0 lead as Tyler Deresky got free down the left hand side and fired a shot low to beat Nichols.
The 2nd period was the Ryan Cole show as the forward scored twice to make the score 4-0 after two periods. On the first goal, Omar Mullan stole the puck at the blueline and raced in on a shorthanded 2 on 1.ã?? Mullanâ??s initial shot was denied by Nichols, but the rebound was collected by Cole and put into the open net. Another Wild turnover led to a 2 on 0 breakaway as TJ Sacona raced in with Cole and waited until the last minute to drop it to Cole who fired it home for a 4-0 lead.
The Wild could not get any offense going in the 3rd period, recording just six shots. After a mostly defensive period Omar Mullan rounded out the scoring to make it a 5-0 final. Final shots in the game favored Amarillo, 24-16. Berrafato stopped all 16 shots, while Nichols made 19 saves.
