Less than two minutes later Mark Rumsey fired a wrist shot off the post and in to give the Titan a 3-2 lead with assists to Cole Stewart and Maxime Rioux. A slashing call to Harijs Brants at the 3:35 mark gave the Armada a golden opportunity to even the score and they took full advantage. Simon Pinard netted his second of the game 1:10 into the man advantage to make it 3-3. Still tied after 60 minutes of play, we would need overtime.
