Jayson Krauthamer secured his third shutout of the season in goal in the winning effort for the Knights.

Tyler Granelli got the scoring started 8:38 into the first period completing a fantastic give-and-go play with Christian McGrane.

Stefan Hludzinski needed only a minute and 38 seconds into the second period to make it three for the Knights. He found a soft spot in the slot and ripped a shot through the five-hole of King.
