The real Markham Waxers appeared for the first time in the series and tied the best of seven affair at 2-2 with a dominant 5-1 victory at home.  The Waxers controlled the game from the outset, peppering 51 shots at the Ranger net while BJ Van Mierlo faced 28 in the Waxer net earning the victory.

Mark Menonte got the Waxers on the board with his third goal of the playoffs at the 8 minute mark in the first.  Eric Kleine kept the puck in at the blueline and shot it down the boards to Travis O'Rourke.  He centered the puck to Menonte in the high slot and Menonte slid a backhander between the goalies' legs for the 1-0 lead.

North York tied the score early in the second period at 1-1 and then the Waxers exploded for 4 goals in the next 10 minutes to put the game away.  Steve Nobili scored the game winning goal on the powerplay when, after Jason Duffy and Joey Grasso made a nice 2-on-1 play for a Grasso shot, Nobili slapped home a rebound before it could be cleared from the crease.  Jesse Boucher scored to make it 3-1 when he deflected home a Matt Neely point shot, Kevin Cribari picked up the other assist.  Cribari then reversed the stat sheet scoring his own tip in goal, assisted by Neely and Boucher.  Ryan Steane scored 16 seconds after Cribari after Mark Skeels and Nobili had shots at the Ranger net to finish the scoring for the Waxers.
