Midway through the second period Kevin McKernan took a cross checking penalty putting the Engineers on the power play. Less than a minute later RPI cut the lead to two on Jacob Hayhurst's power play goal from Will Reilly and Mike Prapavessis. Seven minutes later Connor Clifton ripped a shot from the point that redirected in off of Bo Pieper and past Perry for the goal giving the Bobcats a three goal lead once again.

Quinnipiac out shot RPI for the game 37-24 and had seven players with multi point games. Andrew Shortridge made 21 saves for his seventh win of the season. The Bobcats improve to 17-13-2 (11-8-1 ECAC) while RPI drops to 7-25-1 (5-15 ECAC). Quinnipiac now returns home next week to conclude the regular season against Yale and Brown with an outside chance at still securing a first round bye should Saint Lawrence lose both games and Quinnipiac win both games.
