Gameday final: UND 5, Colorado College 3

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: MidcoSN, FCS Central, DirecTV 626. Lineup notes: Major shakeup for UND. Mitch MacMillan going to the top line with Corban Knight and Danny Kristo. Joe Gleason going to right wing. Andrew Panzarella coming in. Zane Gothberg starting in goal. Full lines and live chat are below.

First period

Colorado College 1, UND 0 — Scott Winkler (Jared Hanson, Archie Skalbeck) 3:13. There’s a loose puck in the high slot that Rowney attempts to clear out of danger. Instead, he puts it on the tape of Winkler, who is standing on top of the crease. Winkler slams it by Gothberg.

Colorado College 1, UND 1 — Danny Kristo (Mitch MacMillan, Derek Forbort) 5:17. Great shift by Mitch MacMillan leads to a Kristo goal. Mitch forces a turnover in the offensive zone and later makes a great outlet pass to Kristo, who skates in and snipes from the top of the left circle. Kristo has a goal in seven straight games now.

Colorado College 2, UND 1 — Scott Winkler (William Rapuzzi, Rylan Schwartz) 13:11 (pp). The Tigers nearly give up a breakaway to Grimaldi, but they hold the zone. The puck goes behind the net, where Rapuzzi chips it to Winkler in the right circle. Somehow, Winkler gets a puck through a maze of bodies in front of Gothberg.

Second period

Colorado College 2, UND 2 — Joe Gleason (Corban Knight, Dillon Simpson) 8:02 (pp). Knight has the puck at the bottom of the left circle and makes a pass all the way across the ice to Gleason at the bottom of the right circle. Gleason is only a few feet out from the end line, but is able to snipe the goal from a really difficult angle. Knight’s point streak reaches 17 games.

UND 3, Colorado College 2 — Mitch MacMillan (Danny Kristo) 13:22. Right after CC hits a post on a backhand, UND turns it the other way for a four-on-three. Kristo makes a great cross-ice feed to MacMillan who rips a shot far side from the circle for his first goal in a UND jersey.

Third period

UND 3, Colorado College 3 — Rylan Schwartz (Eamonn McDermott, Mike Boivin) 5:13 (pp). MacWilliam gets called for tripping when he’s a good 5 feet away from the guy who goes down and CC takes advantage. Schwartz snipes one far side from the top of the right circle.

UND 4, Colorado College 3 — Jim (Danny Kristo, Jordan Schmaltz) 7:45. Schmaltz hits the post with a rocket from the post. Kristo picks up the rebound and nearly sneaks one under Thorimbert. The puck sat in the crease, Senkbeil crashed and knocked it home.

UND 5, Colorado College 3 — Danny Kristo (Nick Mattson, Zane Gothberg) 18:54 (en). Kristo picks up the puck in his own zone, skates it near center. He doesn’t gain the line but Kristo has the confidence that he’ll score and he does.

    • Not me. Saunders has let some soft goals in early lately. He plays better later in games but in my opinion this teams weakness is in net.

      • Teams weakness is not completely in our goaltender…but our D making dumb turn overs. Plain and simple…look at the goals we have given up this year off of turnovers by our D and you will see there are too many. Good thing, it’s something that can be and should be fixable.

  1. Don’t know if it’s always been like this and I’ve just been oblivious, but I saw Bryn Chyzyk warming up last night. Any reason for that?

    • Yes, every once in a while they do that. Sometimes it’s because a player isn’t 100 percent sure he can go and he’s testing it during warmups. Other times, I think they just skate to skate. Might have been to test out Caggiula last night.
