Just over a minute in, Renwick sniped his 1st of the post-season from Johnston and D’Amico on the powerplay. 5 minutes later, there was a scramble in front of the Kitchener goal and Currie found the loose puck and scored the games tying goal. Miedema and Henault had the assists. Another 5 minutes later, as a Spitfires penalty expired Christopoulos got the puck off the offensive draw and backhanded the puck upstairs for a big goal to give the Spitfires a 3-2 lead. Just two and a half minutes later, Johnston scored his 7th of the postseason extended the Spits lead to 4-2 heading into the third.
In the third period, Kitchener scored to make it a 4-3 game. With just under 7 minutes left, it was Alex Christopoulos scoring his 2nd of the night to restore the two-goal lead. Johnston would add an empty-netter and the Spitfires would go on to win 6-3.
