In game two Bálizs and Attila Adorján were back between the pipes for their respective teams. DVTK scored first on the opening power play of the game with a nice tic-tac-toe play that ended up with Galanisz scoring a one timer. In the second period Galanisz scored his second of the game to make it 2-0 for the visiting team. Just before the midway point of the game Balázs Somogyi redirected a shot past Adorján to make it 2-1. Minutes later Somogyi put his own rebound in to tie the game up at 2-2, this time it was a shorthanded score. Tomas Klempa scored before the period was out as MAC flipped the score and took a one goal lead into the second intermission. Late in the third period with Brance Orbán serving 2+2 for a nightstick Jared Brown scored a short handed goal on a breakaway.
