HOW IT WENT DOWN
San Jose started out the night with two goals from Sasha Chmelevski, putting the Barracuda up 2-0. A quick one-timer from Danny O’Regan got the Silver Knights on the board to end the period. O’Regan collected his second of the night 7:35 into the second stanza. Maxim Letunov regained the San Jose lead on the power play to end the period. The Barracuda gained some extra security in the final frame with a goal from Brandon Coe. Pavel Dorofeyev notched one for Henderson, but a goal from Joel Kellman quickly followed up to reinstate their two-goal lead. The Silver Knights were back within one thanks to a goal from Jonas Rondbjerg with 13:30 left in the game. Seconds after Oscar Dansk went to the bench for the extra attacker, Jack Dugan found the back of the net and tied it 5-5 with two minutes left in regulation.
