The Stingrays built a 2-0 lead with a pair of late goals in the first period, with Andrew Cherniwchan (17:25) and Justin Florek (18:27) scoring.

Tristin Langan got Orlando on the board at 4:53 of the third with his 12th of the season, but the Stingrays restored their two-goal lead when Ully scored at 5:41.
