The Gladiators failed to generate any real offensive chances in the opening period, getting outshot 13-3 by the Icemen as they held their 1-0 advantage at the end of one.

The Icemen added on another tally in the second period as Damien Giroux buried a rebound past Gustavs Grigals to double the lead. (4:32)

Cody Sylvester cut the deficit in half on the power play with a one time blast from the right circle to bring the Gladiators back within one. (6:55)
