The Millionaires though before the 2nd period buzzer went off answered short-handed as Hudson Norris stole a puck at his own blue-line & tucked it five-hole on Ethan Farrow for his 6th to make it even through 40 minutes.

The Terriers regained their one goal lead just 1:36 into the third and it would be Tyson Perkins yet again as his long point shot beat Rau again clean for his 2nd of the night making it 3-2.

But for the 2nd straight period it was the Mils responded with a short-handed marker as this time Kole Keen notched his 2nd goal of the day to make it 3-3.
