April 5, 2019
The Twisters dropped their second consecutive game Sunday night as the Jets picked up a win by a final score of 5 to 3. With the win the Jets force game six with the Twisters leading the series 3-2.
The game would get off to a good start for the Twisters as they would strike first with Jordan Keck scoring over a worsening Beck off a perfect cross ice saucer pass from Mark Klassen. The teams would then trade power-plays with neither being able to capitalize. Late in the period the Twisters would fail to get the puck out of their zone as Chop would steal and roof the puck over the shoulder of Klassen from a sharp angle. Before the period was over the Twisters would retake the lead on a power-play as a one-timer from Wood would be stopped but on the rebound Van De Velde would slide a pass to Penner back door and he would score to make it 2-1 for the Twisters after one.
The Twisters would take three consecutive to start the second with the third one coming back to hurt them as Nychuk would pot a loose puck at the side of the net to tie it, 2-2. Just under halfway through the the period Devun Groot would skate across the blue line and take a wrist shot that would hit the blocker of Klassen and bounce behind him into the net to give the Jets their first lead of the night, 3-2. There would be a flurry of penalties to end the second including Van De Velde being ejected for the Twisters, but no further scoring.
With 14:36 remaining in the third the Twisters would draw even with the Jets as Beernaerts would work the puck to Goderis at top of circle and his wrister would beat a screened Beck to tie it, 3-3. Just minutes later the Jets would retake the lead as off a face-off bodies would slide into the Twisters net and the puck would end up behind Klassen for a goal credited to Chop to make it 4-3. Then with 8:42 remaining the Jets would add to their lead as Daniels-Webb would lead a two on one and slide a pass across to Chop who would one time the puck by Klassen, making it 5-3. They Twisters would try to battle back but could not put another by Beck as they would fall 5-3 to the Jets and have to look to close out the series in game six.
Shots in the game were 50 to 37 for the Twisters. Jordan Keck, Penner, and Goderis scored for the Twisters in the loss. Travis Klassen stopped 32 of 37 shots in net for the Twisters.
