Then Fattal scored back-to-back goals again, her third and fourth of the game. The first was on a power play (3:13) and the second on a penalty shot with 2:15 to go in the second. After a power play goal by ASU, the Bruins took an 8-4 lead into the break when Donohoe completed her hat trick on a 6-on-5 opportunity with 15 seconds left.

The Bruins maintained their four-goal lead throughout the third period with both teams scoring twice. Both of Arizona State's scores were on power plays while the Bruins' were at full strength.
