Off of a long shot in the third, Colin Szezensy getting swallowed up in front of the net regains control and gets the goal to tie the game up at 5 with 3 minutes to play in the third.
After another WV goal, Metea ties it up again at 6s with seconds left in the third thanks to a rockey from Brady Erdman from way out.
