Defenseman Jeremy Price received the second assist. Forward Scott Campbell sealed the victory with an empty-net unassisted shorthanded goal at 19:26 to extend his personal point streak to seven games (seven goals, three assists) and goal streak to six games (seven goals). The Stingrays wrapped up the night 1-for-4 on the power play while the Gladiators went 0-for-7.
