The lone goal of the opening period came early when Knoxville’s Grauer skated through the left circle and cut across the crease with a low finish behind Ian Sylves at 1:58. Evansville had a couple notable chances to tie, but Davenport made a stretching save with the left pad and another diving attempt later on to keep the score at 1-0 at the end of the first.

Swider scored at 4:02 of the second from the slot to double Knoxville’s lead. Neugold collected a loose puck off the left side of the crease and flipped it over a fallen Sylves to make it 3-0 at 6:59. He gave Knoxville a four-goal lead with a breakaway goal with 20 seconds remaining after fielding a beautiful saucer pass at the blue line from Mike Chen from the other end of the ice.
