Marc Denis was perfect through two periods and was staked a 2-0 lead heading into the final frame. Disappointingly, the team allowed 2 quick goals and it was 2-2. Mario Scalzo scored the go ahead marker midway through the third only to see Albany tie the game with 28 seconds left. Barf.

Radek Smolenak stretched his point scoring streak to five games.

Junior Lessard and Paul Szczechura were named second and third stars of the game, respectively.
