In the second peroid the Gamblers continued to build off the late goal in the first as Max Woods would put the Gamblers up 2-0 at the 13:35 mark in the second.  After the second goal Tuck dug deep and keep working hard, which would eventually pay off as Emmanuel Vezia would make the score 2-1 with  6:12 left in the period. Tuck continued to pressure the Gamblers and it forced them to take a penatly.

Just like on the first power play Tuck was able to capitalize on the second power play on a goal from Craig Switzer with 1:51 left in the period to put Tuck up 3-2.   The period would end with Tuck leading 3-2 after scroing three unanswered goals in the second. 

In the third the Gamblers would settle down and the game was back an forth with chances, however Tuck's Farr was focused in the third and wouldn't let anything in. The Gamblers pulled the goal late in the third but still couldn't score with a 6 on 5 advantage, Tuck's Mark Rinaldi would put Tuck up 4-2 with his empty net goal with 1:19 left in the game.
