Jacob Symonds led Big Blue with two goals, with single markers coming from Shane Stolcman, , Orville Hildebrand, and John Langford.
The Redwings took a 2 - 1 lead into the middle period, and then outscored the Falcons 3 - 2 in the second to increase their lead to two goals heading into the last period.
Williams put the Wings up by three goals early into the third period when he was setup on a play from Lowe and Steve Newbound (pictured).
The Falcons however refused to lay down and die and two quick goals from Langford and Symonds lifted them to within a goal of the Wings and the play picked up midway into the final frame.
Lowe and Gaspari then responded with two goals to put the Redwings back into the driver’s seat and they stormed home with the three goal victory.
The Wings outshot the Falcons 35 -2 3 including a 14 - 5 edge in the last 20 minutes. Johnny Cousins stopped 18 shots to earn the win in goal for the Redwings, while Dale Glover stopped 27 shots in the Falcons goal.
