Later in the period the Silverbacks got into penalty trouble, dealing with a 5-on-3 after Josh Latta and Julian Timba were sent to the box. August Von Ungern took advantage of the numerical superiority to tie the game at one-all.
Following another Salmon Arm penatly – a cross-checking call on Nick Unruh – the Wild took the lead.
