The Pilots were unable to capitalize on the power play, including an instance in the third period which saw Abbotsford produce one shot during a five minute major. Steelers goaltender Cale Dolan stopped 15 shots on the way to his league-leading 7th shutout of the season, while Brock Machholz of the Pilots faced 21 shots in his first appearance between the pipes since November 15th.
