Nicholas Hussa’s power play goal 10:38 into the third period with a Samuel Junker assist broke a 3-3 tie and gave the Trojans a lead they would not lose. Three minutes later, the Trojans added an insurance goal when PJ Pounds (Alex Carrozza assist) found the net on a shorthanded goal to go on top 5-3.

In the opening period, Hussa’s power play goal with a Nolan Ryan assist gave the Trojans an early lead.

Neither team scored in the second period, but goals by Brown (McCarthy assist) and Gamburg on the power play with a Max Frearson assist knotted the score midway through the final period, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.
Hussa’s four-goal night led the Trojans.
Chris Shea turned away 21 shots and earned the win goal for the Trojans. James Haak had 32 saves in goal for the Cardinals.
