The Aces outshot the Bulls 14-6 in the opening period, but the game remained scoreless through the period. 

 

In the second, Alaska put 12 more shots on San Francisco’s Thomas Heemskerk, but could not beat the netminder.  The Bulls broke the scoreless tie when Kevin Baker finished off a cross ice pass from Matt Carter at 6:11 of the period to give San Francisco a 1-0 lead.  Alaska scrambled furiously for the equalizer late in the period on a play where Heemskerk lost his stick and blocker on a save, but managed to keep Alaska off the scoreboard with a series of acrobatic saves while scrambling to reapply his blocker.      

 

The Aces began their third period surge in the opening minute of the frame.  Brandon Dubinsky scored on a power play 56 seconds in to tie the score at 1-1.  Then on a delayed penalty at 6:51 Alexandre Imbeault scored from the edge of the slot in his return to the Aces lineup.  Alaska got a late insurance goal on another power play when Joey Crabb scored on a wrist shot at 17:33.  Nick Mazzolini capped the comeback win with an empty net goal at 19:17.   

 

Mark Guggenberger (2-1) earned the win making 18 saves on 19 shots while Thomas Heemskerk (1-2-1) took the loss, making 40 saves on 44 shots.  The Aces went 2-2 on the power play and the Bulls went 0-2.  Alaska outshot San Francisco 44-19 in the game.
