TONIGHT’S VIEWING: Midco Sports Network, FCS Central, DirecTV 626. UND is switching a few things around on the third and fourth lines. That’s about all for changes. Denver is skating with 10 forwards. Zac Larraza didn’t make the trip (illness) and Larkin Jacobson is serving a suspension. Jarrod Mermis also is out of the lineup.. Live chat and lines are below.
Denver 1, UND 0 — Chris Knowlton (Nick Shore, Dakota Mermis) 7:21. Shore and Knowlton entered the zone two-on-two. Shore’s shot was blocked by Mattson, but the puck fell at their feet, Knowlton saw it and swatted it into the corner of the net.
Denver 1, UND 1 — Carter Rowney (Drake Caggiula, Jordan Schmaltz) 1:32. Schmaltz walks down and snaps a shot that’s stopped by Olkinuora. Caggiula passes the rebound to Rowney in the slot area. Rowney fans on the shot but it goes off of Zajac’s stick and in the net.
Denver 2, UND 1 — Scott Mayfield (Ty Loney, Dakota Mermis) 7:43 (pp). Mayfield launches a point shot through traffic and past Saunders’ stick.
Denver 2, UND 2 — Corban Knight (Dillon Simpson, Nick Mattson) 10:54 (pp). Grimaldi makes a dazzling play to create a power play and UND capitalizes right away. Simpson sends a point shot to the crease area, where Knight gets two attempts. Olkinuora stops the first one, but Knight picks the corner on the second.
