Jake Morissette opened the scoring for the visitors 2:19 into the contest but Brandon Benedict soon had the Giants level.

Joey Martin's powerplay goal for Cardiff was cancelled out by Colin Shields and Brent Walton put the Devils ahead for the third time before Mike Forney again tied it to send the game to overtime.
