Patrick Bolahood took a pass from Damien Heinle who was behind the Knights net and he buried it in the slot for 1-0 lead. The Knights then took over, tying it up before the period ended and took the lead in the second where it stayed that way till the third. Just 2:17 into the final frame Derek Dolan played give and go with defenceman Adam Bartholomew and walked in front firing a shot over the goalie’s glove side. Then it was a power shot from Bartholomew that found its way trough a maze of players for the 3-2 lead, Aiden Reilly fed a pass from the corner to set up the play. Ryan McConkey picked up his second straight win of the season facing 38 shots in the Bruins net.
