After coming out slower than slow in the 1st period and being out-shot 19-1, the Rebels showed character and bounced back in the second to even the score in the 2nd period at two goals a piece. The Frozen Tide took the lead back and the Rebels with 1:12 seconds left scored a power play goal with the goalie pulled to tie the game up. In the shootout, Rebel goalie just Ragland slammed the door shut by not allowing a goal in the shootout and Senior Cameron Cook scored five-hole as the second shooter to give the Rebels the shootout win.
The Rebels came out flying in game 2, looking to clinch 2nd place in the West Division for the first time. After 3 back and forth periods and OT, the Rebels and Frozen Tide went to another shootout. This time though the Rebels couldn’t bury a goal on the Frozen Tide goalie while the Tide scored one goal in the shootout to take the win.
