Clan went into this one without a win in their last five games against the Stingrays and at the end of this one it was six games without a win after they lost out on penalty shots. They were a goal to the good with two minutes remaining and the visitors levelled it with 62 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime and eventually penalties.
It was the Stingrays who netted the only goal of the opening session as marksman Guillaume Doucet was on target at 6.08. Whilst at the other end goaltender Bowns put up the blockers.
The teams traded goals in the second stanza, Neil Trimm got the home side level at 34.52 and then Bobby Chamberlain fired home to cancel that marker out at 37.44 to give the visitors a slender one goal lead going into the third period.
With only two seconds on the clock in the third period Chris Frank (Clan) and Jeff Smith (Stingrays) went toe to toe and ended up in the bin on 5 minute fighting majors. Eighteen seconds later the game was all square for the second time as Matt Haywood scored for the Clan.
The home side went in front for the first time at 57.35 with a powerplay goal from Kenton Smith. They failed to hold onto this lead and Carl Lauzon got the goal that took the game into overtime at 58.58. The overtime period failed to find a winner and in the penalty shootout Lauzon was the only player to find the target as the Stingrays picked up the extra point.
