Holstrom and Lindsay hooked up again in the second period, this time it was Holstrom setting up Lindsay with the goal on a centering pass, Lindsay tipped it behind goaltender Jake Stafford to give Corpus Christi a 2-0 advantage at the 11:14 mark of the middle frame.

New Mexico got on the board with a crucial goal on a pass from the right point by Eric Sade finding Marcus Nordland waiting back-door for an easy tap-in goal with 2:53 left in the period.

The Mustangs completed the comeback 8:15 into the third period as Jayson Angus broke into the zone and beat Anthony Stolarz top-shelf tying the game at two apiece.

After nothing was decided through 60 minutes of play, and no scoring in overtime, a shootout ensued.  New Mexico scored in the fifth round of the shootout to defeat the IceRays and pick up the extra point.
