Slough failed to capitalise on their second powerplay opportunity but at 19.59 Frantisek Barklik made it 2-0 when his shot found the back of the net a fraction of a second before the buzzer sounded with Valecko and Kieras again assisting.
Slough killed off a penalty to Matt Towalski and then went on to make it 3-0 when Pliskauskas scored at 31.04 for his second strike of the night. Tom Duggan broke the shut-out at 37.25 finishing from James Archer and the second interval was taken with the home team leading 3-1.
Neither team capitalised on early 4 on 4 opportunity time in the third period but Luke Boothroyd made it 3-2 at 48.24, just 30 seconds after Slough believed to have scored at the other end of the ice only to see their “goal” disallowed. Ondrej Pozivil completed the come back at 57.34 to make it 3-3 and a long range dump in from Tony Hand proved the game winner as the puck found the back of the net at 58.53. Slava Koulikov called the home team time-out but from the re-start they managed only 10 seconds of empty net as Bakrlik picked up at slashing penalty with just 8 seconds to go.
