Defenseman Jeremy Price picked up the second assist.
 
Gladiators forward Jeremy Malouin evened the contest at 16:31 of the second period, but Stingrays forward Wayne Simpson made it 3-2, the eventual game-winning tally, with 58 seconds remaining ripping a shot over the glove over Philips with help from Boyd. The Stingrays finished the game 0-for-3 on the power play while the Gladiators went 0-for-2.
