After a scoreless second period, Alaska's scoring attempts finally produced a goal from Bryan Miller on the power play. With neither team able to net one again, the game was sent into OT and then a shootout.
Nick Mazzolini was the only one able to score, giving Alaska the advantage as Gerald Coleman stopped all of Utah's shots.
