Éric Plourde (Alexia Desforges, Élodie St-Jacques) then levelled the score two minutes later on the power play, taking advantage of a group of players in front of the net to shoot. Clements (Ruby Loughton, Lexis Murphy) late in the second period scored her second and the winner, taking advantage of a moment of inattention to find the back of the net. Both teams were unable to score in the third. Shaylin McFarlane saw 22 shots in the win. Moncton scored once in 6 opportunities on the power play and the Panthers were 0 in 2.
