Jakub Skarek allowed four goals on 12 shots in the first period as Evan Buitenhuis came in relief for the final two periods making 24 saves on 28 shots. Francois Beauchemin (3-0-3) and David Pacan (1-3-4) led the way offensively as Joey Daccord made 22 saves on 25 shots in net for his fifth win on the year. The Beast are now 4-0-0 vs. Worcester this season as the Railers have dropped eight of their last nine games.

It was all Brampton as the Beast grabbed goals from David Pacan (6th) and Francois Beauchemin (7th) just 2:30 into the game to take a 2-0 lead. Driving the net hard, Ross Olsson (2nd) slammed home a rebound at 4:19 after a great entry and shot from JD Dudek. Daniel Leavens (6th) gave Brampton back a two-goal lead snapping a shot off from the point beating Jakub Skarek low blocker at 17:14. With just 14 seconds left in the frame David Vallorani (5th) fired a wrister from the left circle finding the back of the net making it a 4-1 Brampton lead. The Beast outshot the Railers 12-9 in the first period.

The Beast added a score on the power-play at 6:44 of the middle frame as Francois Beauchemin (8th) blasted a wrist shot off from the high slot over the glove of Evan Buitenhuis giving Brampton a 5-1 lead. David Vallorani (6th) would net his second goal of the day finishing off a two on one going through the wickets of Evan Buitenhuis. Under a minute remained in the period when Bo Brauer (2nd) crossed the Beast blue line from the left wing and whipped one on net past the blocker of Joey Daccord with just six seconds remaining in the second stanza. There was a near bench clearing brawl at the end of the period which consisted of Railers assistant coach Derek Army getting into it with Beast head coach Spiros Anastas which led to the ejection of Yanick Turcotte. Evan Buitenhuis made 12 saves on 14 shots as he came in relief at the start of the period for Jakub Skarek. Worcester trailed 6-2 after 40 minutes of play.

Each team registered a power-play score in the third period. It was Jordan Samuels-Thomas (5th) for Worcester who scored with a wrist shot from the right circle beating Joey Daccord through the five hole at 15:42. Francois Beauchemin (9th) netted a hat trick score with 63 seconds left while Rob Mann (1st) finished off an odd man rush at 19:57 as Worcester fell 8-3 on the road.
