Taking advantage of a partial five-minute man advantage, Kirkland Lake made Iroquois Falls pay by notching a pair of first period power play markers off the sticks of Cordssen-David, who notched his first NOJHL tally, and Marc-Antoine Arseneau, who collected his 20th of the season.

Former Eskis forward Brett Ouderkirk, with his 18th, extended the Gold Miners lead at 17:50 to put the home side up by three through 20 minutes.

The Gold Miners third man advantage effort of the night put the hosts up 4-0 through two periods of play as Cordssen-David picked up his second of the evening.

Joel Fortin helped Kirkland Lake go up by five 7:33 into the third, with his 13th this season, before the Eskis Dante Juris spoiled Tyler Mazzocato’s shutout bid with a power play marker at 12:25.
