|Game 4 (OT)|
All four games in the series were decided by a single goal, and the Falcons joined the 1956 Cleveland Barons as the only teams in AHL history to win three overtime games in a single best-of-five series.
Blake Parlett opened the scoring for Springfield exactly 100 seconds into the game, and Colton Yellow Horn answered for Manchester at 8:33 of the first period. Linden Vey then scored his first two goals of the series to give the Monarchs a 3-1 lead.
Springfield will face either Syracuse or Hershey in the second round beginning next week.
