The shootout came down to the final two shooters as the score was tied 6-6. Steve Bernier of the Moncton Wildcats was stopped by Saginaw Spirit goaltender Tyson Kellerman, setting up the final showdown between Windsor’s Kyle Wellwood and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. Wellwood deked Fleury’s to the glove side and slid the puck under the fallen Quebec All-Star, giving the OHL a 7-6 lead going into the three on three game.
