Lethbridge Hurricanes head coach Rich Preston was ejected from the game late in the third period after gingerly dumping several water bottles on the ice in disgust after a Hurricanes goal is called back. He also tossed a clipboard onto the ice, Frisbee style, that just missed one of the referee's.
The linesman calls a spearing penalty on Lethbridge forward Graham Hood before the goal is scored but notifies the referee's of the infraction after the first stoppage of play, which oddly enough is after the Hurricanes score to make it a one goal game.
So, instead of the score being 4-3 for the Rockets, the Hurricanes find themselves down 4-2 with the Rockets scoring on the ensuing power play to make it 5-2.
Lethbridge scores a late goal on a power play with about a minute and a half left to play to make it a 5-3 final.
