The Voyageurs scoring came in the second period and only twice. Russel Nowry and Brett Jacklin scored two unassisted goals five minutes and fifty-eight seconds in and as well thirteen minutes and ten seconds into the second period.
The Redmen would be operating offensively at with a much higher success rate as they were able to score six times in three frames. Syrydiuk, Talbot-Tassi, and Orr would all be accredited a goal, Jordan-Ty Fournier would be score three. The Redmen opened up a 2-0 lead within the first six minutes of the game, then Fournier's first would make it 3-0 five minutes into the second. After Nowry got Laurentian on the board, Orr's goal twenty-seven seconds later would chase starting goalie Brayden Lachance from the net.
The Redmen took the match 6-2 and sent the Voyageurs back to Sudbury with one win and a loss on the weekend. Special teams were again the difference. McGill would go 2/5 on the powerplay, and Laurentian went 0/3 while also giving up two short-handed goals.
The Voyageurs wrap up their 7-game road trip with a Wednesday night game at Nipssing, then return home to play the Carleton Ravens and Ottawa Gee-Gees this upcoming weekend in Sudbury.
