Hamilton went up 2-0 at 1:18 of the second period. Subban fired a shot from the point that bounced off the leg of a San Antonio defender and onto the stick of Glumac, who put the puck through Tordjman's pads.

Subban gave Hamilton a 3-0 lead at 9:56 of the second. Trotter fed a cross-ice pass to Desharnais, who wired a shot on net that was stopped by Tordjman. Subban stuffed the loose rebound beneath Tordjman and over the goal-line.

Desharnais scored at 3:08 of the third period to cap the scoring. Trotter dished the puck to Deshanrais, who was stationed at the right faceoff circle. Desharnais rifled a shot over the glove of Tordjman and into the top of the net.
