Full lines and live chat are below.
UND 1, SCSU 0 — Drake Caggiula (Bryn Chyzyk, Nick Mattson) 11:18. Caggiula gets a good look from the slot and misses high and wide, but eventually gets the puck back in nearly the same spots and rips a snap shot off the crossbar and in.
UND 1, SCSU 1 — Jonny Brodzinski (Drew LeBlanc) 12:19. SCSU catches a break to score its first goal of the weekend. There’s a loose puck in the crease area, Saunders never covers it, but the refs blow it dead and call for a draw. Saunders isn’t happy about the call, then the Huskies score on a snap shot right off the draw.
SCSU 2, UND 1 — Drew LeBlanc (Joe Rehkamp, Nic Dowd) 4:59. Just seconds after UND kills a major power play, the Huskies cash in. They get the puck to the crease area, where Saunders makes to outstanding goal-mouth scramble saves, but the puck goes out to the other side, where LeBlanc finds it and scores.
SCSU 3, UND 1 — Drew LeBlanc (David Morley, Nic Dowd) 12:23 (pp). The Huskies convert a 3-on-2 rush on a power play when Morley hit LeBlanc with a cross-crease feed. LeBlanc’s shot hit Saunders’ shoulder, but went in anyways.
SCSU 3, UND 2 — Dillon Simpson (Corban Knight, Danny Kristo) 17:23 (pp). UND scores on its first power-play chance of the night in a matter of seconds. Knight, standing at the bottom of the left circle, finds Simpson pinching in and hits him with a cross-crease feed. Simpson taps it in.
SCSU 4, UND 2 — Garrett Milan (Joe Rehkamp, Joey Holka) 6:23. Rehkamp takes a shot from the right wing. Saunders kicks aside the shot, but Milan squeezes the rebound just between Saunders’ pads. A UND defender has a chance to sweep it out but whiffed on it, then the puck crossed the line.
SCSU 5, UND 2 — Jimmy Murray (Joe Rehkamp, Nick Jensen) 17:04. Murray finishes this one off with a point shot through traffic for his first college goal.
