After a scoreless first period, the Marlies carried a 10-9 lead in shots.
During a power play in the middle frame, the Monsters took a 1-0 lead when Greg Mauldin took a pass from Ben Walter, went in on a quick breakaway and snapped a shot into the right side of the net at 1:48.

With just 35 seconds remaining in the period, the Monsters used a power play opportunity of their own to retie the game. From the point, Belle snapped a low shot that made its way through net-front traffic and into the net. Belle’s goal marked his first multi-point outing as a Monster and his third point (1G, 2A) in his last two games, while Walter also assisted for his 16th point (4G, 12A) in his last 10 outings.
