After getting shutout in game one, Mark Jankowski (1) netted Stockton's first Calder Cup playoff goal in team history as the AHL All-Rookie teamer slid a puck through Troy Grosenick's five-hole just a minute and 30 seconds into the first. At 12:22, Austin Carroll (1) made it 2-0 Heat as he received a tape-to-tape pass in the low slot and ripped the puck far side past Grosenick. Linden Vey (1) pushed Stockton's lead to 3-0 on the power play at 16:23 as the veteran forward snuck a shot short side on a screened Grosenick. Garnet Hathaway (1) completed the four-goal period as he jetted down the right wing and got beyond the San Jose defense before finishing off the breakaway with a backhand-to-forehand move at 17:07.

John McCarthy (1) cut the lead in half with a wrist shot from the slot that snuck under Jon Gillies arm at 7:31 and Ryan ended Gillies night with his second of the game at 11:02 on a two-on-one. After three unanswered goals by the Barracuda, Stockton's Mark Shinkaruk (1) pushed the Heat's lead back to two at 17:43 of the second as he fired a shot far side at 18:55 as he skated down the right wing.
Buddy Robinson (1) made it a one-goal game at 16:19 of the third on a shorthanded breakaway tally, but Vey sealed the series-tying win with an empty-netter at 18:55.
