In a penalty-filled affair on Saturday night, the Wolves returned the favour on Saturday, netting four powerplay goals in the second period after the teams played to a scoreless draw in the first. Travis Vangaver, Stanley, Davidson and Britton put the Wolves ahead to stay with the man advantage, while assists went to Tyler McCarthy (2), Nick Locking, Brian Stanley, Brett Catto, McQuillin and Vangaver.
