Hurlburt (Kevin McGinly/Mario Cummings assists) scored the only goal of the second period, and this one evened the score 3-3.

Devin Bates (Donofry assist) scored for the Ghosts, and less than two minutes later, Hurlburt (Lucas Platt assist) evened the score. Shane Metzler’s goal with assists from Romano and Abramson looked as though it might stand as the game-winner, but Hurlburt had other ideas, scoring the equalizer in the closing seconds of regulation.
