With a fairly slow start to the 2nd period it looked like Cardiff Comets had put on the breaks, however sparks flew @31:07 seeing the teams go to 4 vs 4 with a roughing call from the officials on #16 Bristow for Cardiff and #81 Jo Saville for Peterborough. Happy to have the team back to full strength, winger #15 Taylor claimed her second goal of the night with an unassisted charge down the ice @ 35:23. Not even five minutes later @ 39:39 1st line center #18 Roberts followed her lead with an unassisted goal of her own against the Penguins. Cardiff Comets head into the dressing room for the ice cut with the scoreboard shining 6-0.
Returning for the 3rd period #15 Taylor clearly having the game of the season, scoring another 2 goals, unassisted, within 20 seconds of each other!
