Petersen and his teammates settled down after the second goal with both teams finishing with 10 shots in the first period.

However, Zwerger made it 3-0 with a power play goal at 6:53 of the second period. Michael Spacek gave the Rebels a bit of life as he connected on his ninth goal of the season at 14:07 of the middle stanza.

The Silvertips put the game away at 11:11 of the third period when Eatu Tuulola scored on a penalty shot.
