Huntsville would respond with another two goals before Petaccio would score his goal with 3:25 left off a set-up by Donohue, also assisted by Tyler Howe, fresh off of call-up to the Atlanta Gladiators. In the third period, the Bolts would pull Braeden Ostepchuk for a full 2-minute 6-on-4 advantage, but just couldn't find the back of the net once again, as Huntsville would add an empty netter to win 5-2.
