Slough took to the ice and dominated the game from the opening face-off. While the shots on goal were close it was the visitors who bossed the play and at 13.37 Jan Melichar opened the scoring. Peter Jasik doubled the lead at 18.04 and with just 17 seconds left in the period Sam Waller made it 0-3.
If the first period hadn’t swung the result Slough’s way the second period sealed the points as a spell of 5.02 swung the game totally. Peter Poljacek netted at 28.00 and and again at 30.41 to make it 0-5. Blaz Emersic made it 0-6 at 32.01 and Dan Davies added another just 61 seconds later.
