With 2:44 remaining and a faceoff in the offensive zone, the Falcons pulled their goalie in favor of an extra skater. They kept the puck in the zone for the majority of the time and had four shots on goal but were unable to tie it up.
With the loss, the Falcons fell to 3-5-3 overall and 2-2-1 in league play.
