The Paladins scored goals in every period and held a 3-0 lead, before Queen's was able to find the back of the net twice in the third period. The game went from comfortable to very tight in a matter of minutes.
Against a nationally ranked program, the Paladins did enough of the right things to win. RMC head coach Richard Lim agreed:
"Our guys played really well. We came out and executed our game. We kept it pretty simple, tried to make sure Queen's had to go 200 feet to create any offence and the guys did a pretty good job of that."
