It took 53 mins and 43 seconds until the Bruins scored their first goal of the game by Jason Simmonds, Cameron Moffitt added his first point as a Bruin on the play, but that energized them as they poured it on and that resulted in the lead shortly after. Cristian Giorgio ripped a point blast that deflected off of a Little Britain players stick, Nick Sribny and Simmonds assisting on the play. When you need insurance turn to Sribny who fired a shot from his own blue line, into the empty net and a 3-1 final. Jake Joosten was steady in the Bruins goal and picked up the win on 24 shots.
