Mappin made it 3-0 when he drove past a defender and jammed the puck past Friesen at 5:38.

Lance Bouma had a great chance to make increase the lead after hitting the post on a breakaway. He was awarded a penalty shot on the play, but the Giants' captain was unable to beat Friesen one-on-one.

Bouma helped make it 4-0 when he fed a great pass to Kytnar, who scored just a minute into the third.

Manning scored at 10:05 to make it 6-2.

Cunningham then finished off a pretty tic-tac-toe goal, from Gallagher and Nathan Burns at 15:50 on the power play.
