Wisconsin 1, UND 0 – Derek Stepan (Patrick Johnson) 1:54. Fienhage turned the puck over behind UND’s net to Johnson, who centered it to Stepan. Wide open in the slot, the former Shattuck player put it between Eidsness’ pads.
Wisconsin 1, UND 1 – Brad Miller (Chay Genoway) 6:53. Genoway flipped a high backhand down the ice just to get the puck out of the zone. Miller skated under it along the right wing and came in the zone with a 2-on-1. He took the shot himself and beat Connelly high to the near side.
Wisconsin 2, UND 1 — Brendan Smith (Michael Davies, Jamie McBain) 2:00 (pp). Davies controlled the puck in the middle of the left circle and found McBain at the top of the right circle. McBain one-timed it past Eidsness.
Wisconsin 2, UND 2 – Andrew Kozek (Darcy Zajac) 3:54. Zajac fought off a check as he carried the puck along the left wing. Zajac managed to get a backhand off and Kozek was waiting in the slot for the rebound.
UND 3, Wisconsin 2 – Jason Gregoire (Evan Trupp) 14:45. The Sioux go forward with a faceoff at neutral ice. The puck went to Gregoire at the left circle and he put it between Connelly’s legs.
During the pre-game the zamboni has broken down on the ice. There are five people out there looking at it right now. It’s been at the blue line for a good five to 10 minutes. This is the third straight hockey game I’ve been at now where we’ve had a zamboni malfunction. Update: The zamboni has been towed by the third-string zamboni. You can see where the other one got stuck, though. Hopefully it doesn’t mean any ice problems.
Halloween costumes so far: Someone dressed as Tim the Tool Man Taylor’s Neighbor, Wilson, complete with a fence to hold over his face. Someone else dressed as a blind ref with sunglasses and a guide stick. On the back of the ref jersey: D. Shepherd.
