Subban finished with 33 saves while Mike Morrison had 30 stops for Kingston.

After Ikonen had a power-play goal early in the second, Graovac answered back with two straight in the final five minutes of the period.

Quine added insurance in the third after taking a nifty pass from Daniil Zharkov on a two-on-one. Graovac had his third of the night with just over five minutes left to round out the scoring.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
