In their second game of the day, the Bruins fell behind early to Hawaii, ending the first quarter down 3-2. They then shut out their opponent and scored seven goals over the next two quarters to take a comfortable lead. The Bruins won the game 12-4. Kelly Rulon, Katie Rulon, and Jillian Kraus all recorded three goals in the victory.
