Vespa carried the puck to the front of the net and then passed to the right of the net at the last second for Segedi to finish.

-Seconds into the third period, Segedi scored her second goal of the game making the score 3-0. Snow skated up to the net and took a shot that was saved. There was a scrum in front of the net where the rebound bounced off of Vespa to Segedi who got ahold of the puck and scored.
