Blandisi added to Toronto’s lead before the period ended, leaving Utica trailing by two goals.

Toronto continued their dominance into the second period, with Hirvonen scoring his second goal of the night on a power play. Shaw extended the lead further just before the period concluded, leaving Utica with a daunting deficit to overcome.
