It was truly an amazing series that ended Friday night in Lantz as for the first time since the 2016-2017 season, Liverpool won an opening round playoff series and on top of that won all four games on the road. It is believed it was the first time teams in a playoff series won all of their games on the road. The Privateers while being outshot early, still controlled the play for a good portion of the game and spent considerable time in the East Hants end. The Penguins did score the game’s opening goal and were in control for the opening two and-a-half minutes as Liverpool took two early penalties before an almost jammed East Hants Sportsplex of nearly 600 people. The Privateers were two men short for 40 seconds but with 16 seconds remaining in the two-man advantage, Ryan Langlois and Morgan Lake teamed up on a stupendous passing play which put the Pens up 1-0. It did not last long, in fact only 22 seconds as Malcom Bussey, with the first penalty having been killed off, stole the puck at the Pens blue line and went in alone to tie the game at 1-1. The Privateers went ahead 2-1 when Carson Gallant on a pass from Malcom Bussey snapped a shot from 10 feet in front Penguins net minder who seemed to be caught somewhat off guard. Liverpool then went ahead 3-1 when Alec Howie scored the first of his two goals from 20 feet out in the right face-off circle. The Privateers despite leading 3-1 after the first were outshot by the Pens 16-10 but the problem for the Pens was with the exception of two or three of those shots, none of them were quality scoring chances.
