Second period

UND 1, Minnesota 0 — Michael Parks (Corban Knight, Dillon Simpson) 3:34 (pp). Knight holds the puck below the left circle and attempts a centering pass to Parks. The puck goes off of Parks, then off of the Gopher defenseman Helgeson and in the net. Knight’s point streak gets to 18 games.

UND 1, Minnesota 1 — Zach Budish (Sam Warning, Nate Condon) 6:06. Minnesota rushes the puck up the left wing and Warning hits Budish, who has space in the high slot. Budish snipes the stick-side corner of the net to tie the game.

Minnesota 2, UND 1 — Ben Marshall (Seth Ambroz, Nate Condon) 19:54 (pp). Minnesota has one last rush before the end of the period and they get one on a scramble. Ambroz and Marshall both take whacks at a doorstep chance and Marshall knocks it in.

Third period

Minnesota 3, UND 1 — Nate Schmidt (Erik Haula, Kyle Rau) 6:03. Schmidt launches a point shot that goes off of a UND defender and in. Knight furious that Rau’s not called for interference on Mitch MacMillan just before the goal. Haula notches career point No. 100 on the assist.

Minnesota 4, UND 1 — Nate Condon 15:24 (sh). Gleason breaks his stick attempting a slap shot from the point. Condon carries it, challenges Gleason and snaps one past Saunders’ blocker.

Minnesota 5, UND 1 — Erik Haula (Nick Bjugstad, Seth Ambroz) 16:55 (en). Bjugstad feeds Haula on a 2-on-1 for the empty-netter.

      Schmaltz? I thought they played okay. Matson was brutal, doesn’t deserve to be suited tomorrow. He was brutal.
