The second period brought a little bit more excitement as both teams were able to net 2 goals each. The first goal by the Marauders was scored shorthanded by # 7 Liam Urciuoli. The Rangers answered back just minutes later with a nice shot from the slot by Kaden kjartanson. Later in the period both teams added one more goal each, with a goal from the Marauders #28 Josh Johnson, and the Rangers # 12 Ty Genik.
The Rangers took the lead half way through the third with a big goal by #17 Koki Nishikori. Just seconds after the goal they headed to the box for 2 minutes. Although the Marauders didn’t score on the power play, just seconds after it expired, #28 Josh Johnson found the back of the net to tie the game back up. After an action packed third period the game was tied up at the end of regulation and headed to a shootout. The shootout went back and fourth but it was the Rangers that came out on top.
