With three minutes left in the third period Ben Primeau with a blistering one timer on the power play from Connor Lowe-Wylde and Matt Carr made the game 2-0 which resulted as the final score.
Game five had very little action in the first two periods with both teams playing disciplined hockey with only two penalties each in 40 minutes of play. The third period opened up with the two Ghostrider goals and 11 penalties, five for the Ghostriders and six for the Golden Rockets.
