The Americans trailed 3-1 late in the third period when Branden Troock scored his 12th of the season with three and a half minutes to go to cut the lead to one. The Americans had several chances to tie the game in the final minute but fell a little short as the Rush held on for the victory, Tyler Poulsen was the best player on the ice scoring a goal, winning a fight, and delivering the Caliber Collision Hit of the Game. Poulsen was voted the game’s first star. Hayden Lavigne suffered his fourth straight loss. The Americans streak of powerplay goals scored ended at three games.
