Kansas City scored three unanswered goals in the final frame including two in the final two and a half minutes to sweep the three-game series. Colton Hargrove left the game in the third period for a major penalty which resulted in a five-minute major and a game misconduct. Kevin Mandolese made the start for Allen stopping 41 shots.

Robidoux to miss the series in Boise: Americans forward Mikael Robidoux suffered an upper body injury last weekend against Kansas City. He will not play in any of the three games this week against the Steelheads.
