Devante Smith-Pelly extended the Rocket lead to 2-0 at the 10:18 mark of the second frame. Despite firing 17 shots on net in the stanza, Belleville could not find an answer to goaltender Cayden Primeau.

Head Coach Troy Mann

“Anytime you battle back on the road from a three-goal deficit late in the game and win 4-3 in regulation, you have to be happy with it. We certainly didn’t like our performance last night, but I thought we were much better tonight, and sometimes you don’t win those games. Fortunately, we got some key goals late and ended up with two points.”
