Miceli also scored in regulation for Victoriaville (24-23-8), which blew a 4-1 lead. Philippe Haley scored twice for the Tigres, while Carl-Antoine Delisle and Philippe Maillet added singles.

Allan Caron, Gabriel Slight, Maxime St-Cyr, Nikita Kucherov and Sven Andrighetto replied for the Huskies (31-21-3), who scored twice in the third to force extra time.
