The St. Pierre, Que., Blues and St. John’s Storm hosted two games last season, with the Blues winning each.
Both games were held at the Arena du Nord in St. Petersburg.
The Blues won 5-3 in Game 1, and they took a 3-1 lead in Game 2.
But the Storm got a second-period goal from Scott Hartnell to tie the game at 4-4 in the third period.
The Blues had an advantage in shots, but the Storm came out with the lead with more shots on goal, and the Blues had more shots at the net, too.
Bennett, who scored his first goal as a Storm player in the second period, added a goal in the fourth period to give St. Patrick’s the 3-4 victory.
Game 3 will be played Saturday night.
