"We are getting our chances on offense to score and have been able to score when we have needed to in the first two games," said Saints General Managr Dave Colbourne. "Defensively we have been solid with a great team effort and Jake has been exceptional in goal the entire postseason."

 Leading the Saints was captain Brad Favero who recorded the hat trick. Rookie of the Year Chris Attwood contributed with a goal and two assists while Corey Fowler added three helpers. Ian Llord, Blue Hill and Andy Tober all chipped in with single goals to round out the scoring.
