A sluggish start turned in to the difference as the Markham Waxers, 24 hours after thumping the North York Rangers, have let the momentum change hands and now face a do-or-die situation after losing game 5 at home, 6-4 to the Rangers.

North York controlled the game for pretty much the entire first peruiod scoring the only goal while outshooting the Waxers 19-5.  The Waxers started to get things going in the second period scoring the tying goal just under 2 minutes in after killing off a two man disadvantage.  Pat Porretta lead a 3-on-1 up the ice and dropped the puck to Jesse Boucher.  He fed the puck to Matt Neely on the fly who redirected the puck past the goalie for his first playoff goal of the year.  Things were pretty much equal for the next 13 minutes but then the Rangers exploded for 3 goals in less than two minutes to take a commanding 4-1 lead in to the third period.

The Waxers pulled their goalie at the start of the period while on a 5-on-3 powerplay and the move turned out for the best as Mark Menonte scored from Pat Porretta and Kevin Cribari to make it 4-2.  However, they let the momentum slip away taking 5 straight penalties, the last of which resulted in a powerplay goal for the Rangers.  Markham worked hard in the final 11 minutes scoring twice, Menonte (with his second of the night) and Porretta bulged the twine to cut the lead to 5-4.  North York slated away the win with an empty netter with 3 seconds left.
