New Jersey potted another late in the period to make it 3-1 at the end of the first. Forward Sixten Jennersjo brought the game within one once more 14 and a half minutes into the second period, before New Jersey responded less than 40 seconds later to make it 4-2. The Titans potted an insurance goal 15 minutes into the third to make it 5-2, which stood as the final.

The Titans responded three and a half minutes later, before forward Andrew Delladonna gave the Generals the lead once more 18 and a half minutes into the period at 2-1. New Jersey responded often in the second, scoring twice in the first six and a half minutes of the period once more to make it 3-2, before Defenseman Matthew DeSpirit tied the game a minute later to make it 3-3.
