Alex Killorn, Ian Cole, and Nick Paul were the game’s three stars.
Sergachev’s turnover for the shorthanded goal added a degree of difficulty to this one that was unnecessary and they derped their fair share of chances in OT before Killorn finally got his chance to… ahem… fall. All’s well that ends well, I guess. The team needs five of a possible eight points over the next four games to stay on playoff pace.
Cole Koepke had three hits in 8:31.
Nick Perbix was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 18:08.
