Huskies would tie the game 1-1 before the end of the first period then take the lead on a power play goal midway through the second period. Bulldogs would score two goals in 20 seconds thanks to a 5 minute major penalty called on the Huskies to lead 3-2 heading to the final period.

Yale kept the pressure on by scoring the games final goal just over two minutes into the final frame for 4-2 win.
