Trois-Rivières came back six minutes later and regained the lead off of a Mathieu Gagnon (1st) blast from the point to make it 2-1. 20 seconds later, Mathieu Brodeur (1st) sent a heavy shot off of the end boards that came out and deflected in off of the back of the leg of Ellis to make it a 3-1 game. The second period would end with a score of 3-1. Trois-Rivières outshot Worcester 13-7 in the period, and led shooting 22-20 after 40 minutes.
