For the third time, Missouri broke the tie and made it 3-2 at 5:56 of the second period, when Dan Correale scored on a 2-on-1 rush. The Mavericks then received their fifth power play of the game (the Oilers had just one at the juncture), and Dane Fox blasted a one-timer from high in the slot with 57 second left in the period to make it 4-2.
