St. Charles (9-24-5) poured on the pressure in the final period, getting a goal from Sean Muncy at the 4:20 mark, his second with the Chill, on assists from Justin Levac and Charles Lachance, who got the scoring started in the first period for St. Charles.
Brampton (19-16-3) took a first period lead with a pair of goals in the sixth minute before Lachance responded with a power play goal from Mike MacIntyre and Dan Weiss to close the gap to 2-1 midway through the period.

The Beast added goals in the first, tenth, and final minutes of the second period to stretch their lead to 6-1, the last scored on rookie goalie Linus Lundin who would shut out the Beast in the last period when the Chill dominated play, setting up the rubber match of the three-game series in Brampton on Monday night at 6:00 p.m. You can watch the game live at the official Away Game Watch Party at Mr. Lucky’s.
