Jack Nevitt tied the game early in the second, then Cam Blue put Red Wing up 2-1. Ethan Swenson made it 2-2, but Blue closed the second and opened the third with goals to give the Wingers a 4-2 advantage.

Kam Krueger pulled Mankato West within one, but Blue put the puck into an empty net for his fourth goal at 16:47. Zach Harding made 25 saves in the win.
