Mid 3rd period Bulldogs' defense weathered the storm defending against a 2 man power play advantage for a min and 21 seconds. Exeter was able to score at equal strength with less than 5 minutes remaining in the game which lead to some heroics in net by #1 Matt Desmond who had 21 saves on the night and collected the win.
