Drew Clapperton and Connor MacGregor scored for the Panthers, which led 2-0 after two periods of play. Oz Paziuk and MacGregor assisted on Clapperton’s power-play goal to open the scoring late in the first. Clayton Farrow earned a helper on MacGregor’s second-period tally.
Ben Smith, assisted by Blake Ellis and Ryan Turney, answered back for the Huskies in the third.
