    • Game highlights.  [Sportsnet.ca]
    • Birthday boy Cody Eakin had one assist on Kootenay's third goal - the first time Kootenay had led in the tournament.Eakin also was undefeated in the dot.  He won 100% of his faceoffs. He was on ice for four goals-for and three against. But then, he was on the ice a lot. [Buzzing the Net]
    • Kootenay might have had a disappointing tourney, but it not for Eakin's lack of trying. [THN]
    • Eakin, profiled. [THW]
    • The Finals-bound Sea Dogs opted to rest a number of their players for this game; Stanislav Galiev played the full tilt. He had an assist on the Dogs' second goal and was not on ice for any of the five goals-against. [Gamesheet]
