The Big Macs responded on their home ice at the Printscape Arena with an unassisted goal by Dominic Tracanna to knot the score at 1-1 at the 10:16 mark of the second stanza. Just over three minutes later, NA regained the lead when Brett Baker scored for a 2-1 advantage. The Baker goal was assisted by Evan Kerber and Evan Barnhart.

The Tigers one-goal lead remained intact until Benjamin Votodian deadlocked the contest with a goal at the 4:16 mark of the third period. With the game tied at 2-2, the Tigers and Big Macs played through a scoreless overtime period before CM won the contest in the shootout phase.
