After a scoreless first, the Moose made it 1-0 on the power play at 10:16 of the second. Guillaume Desbiens fed Shirokov, who beat Aeros netminder Barry Brust.

After Milroy tied things for the Aeros, Grabner fired a wrist shot from inside the blue-line to beat Brust to restore Manitoba's lead at 14:11.
