Brody Sutter led the game off with a goal late in the first.  Lucas Wallmark then made it 2-0 in the second period and then Jeff Skinner scored the eventual game-winning goal later in the second.

Elias Lindholm led the team with six shots on goal.  Skinner was next with five.

The Canes outshot the Bolts 38-28 for the game and also had 18 blocked shots.
