The Pirates took a little while to get going but fired three straight goals to finish the first period leading 3-1. Alex Provost-Ross scored early in the second to make it 3-2. But the Pirates replied shortly after to give themselves a 2 goal cushion at 4-2. A little over a minute later the Pirates struck again to increase their lead to 5-2. A mad scramble in the Pirates net area resulted in a Victor Mattsson penalty shot. Mattsson fired a wrist shot that found the back of the net and lifted the water bottle over a foot in the air. The Titans were back wihin 2 again. But another power play by the Pirates capitalized to end the second by the score of 6-3 Ville Marie. The teams exchanged goals in the final 20 minutes to bring the final score 7-4 in favor of the visitors. Julien Vogt had the 3rd period goal. Axel Hallor added 2 assists. Shots on goal were 48 apiece. Ville Marie scored on 3 power play while the Titans replied on two of their own. The difference in tonights game was 3 defensive zone giveaways that resulted in 3 goals.
