It took 63:42 to decide a winner in Game 7 of the Surrey/Cowichan series.
Brandon Tanev scooped home the winning goal to move the Eagles to a second straight Conference Final matchup with the Powell River Kings.
Surrey got the first goal when Alex Hagen snapped a shot off the post and in to break the ice at 12:41 of the first period.
Steven Iacobellis tied it in the second sneaking a loose puck by Andrew Hunt at 15:59.
Hagen's second of the game at 1:02 of the third on a Surrey power play put the Eagles in front for most of the third, but with a minute to go a deflection by Brett Knowles knotted the game at 2-2.
The start of overtime was controlled by the Capitals but Tyler Morley was able to set up Tanev for the winnner at 3:42.
Hunt face 44 Cowichan shots in the game and his best save was a sprawling stop on Devin Gannon in the second period.
For the Caps Derek Dunn was solid as well stopping 28 of 31 shots.
Power plays were at a premium with the Eagles going 1/2 and Caps 2/2.
Saturday's Three Stars were 1) Andrew Hunt 2) Derek Dunn 3) Alex Hagen
This series marked the second time that Cowichan Valley and Surrey met in the playoffs, the Caps beat the Eagles 4-1 in the first round in the 1994 playoffs.
With the way this series went back and forth it will no doubt be remembered as one of the best in the franchise histories of the two clubs.
