The Silverbacks were leading 2-1 in the second period, with Phil Middleton off for slashing as Jack Berezan and Colton Thibault had a short-handed, 2-on-1 opportunity but they just missed. The Centennials later scored on that same man-advantage and tied the game at 2. Berezan with his thought’s on losing the home opener.
