  1. An 'Own Goal' indicates the goalie was the most-recent defender to touch the puck prior to the opposing team's errant pass causing the puck to enter their own goal instead of an intentional SOG by the goalie.
  2. Ellis had not yet reached the bench to be replaced by an extra attacker during an attempt to return to stop the puck. The goal was therefore credited as an official goal against Ellis instead of an empty-net goal.
  3. Replay footage confirmed that the goal was scored with 0.1 seconds remaining in the third period.
