The Saints were able to mount a small come back, outscoring Madison 2-0 in the third, but it wasn't enough, as the game closed out 5-3.
On the night everything but the scores were fairly evenly matched. The Dubuque Fighting Saints outshot Madison 31 to 29, but finishing better on the evening were the Capitols. The Saints did find success with 3 new goal scorers added to the card for the year.
