Mankato 1, UND 0 — Teddy Bluegar (Dylan Margonari, Eriah Hayes) 14:57. UND’s defenders get mixed up on assignments and Margonari is able to attempt a wraparound. Gothberg stops the initial shot, but Bluegar easily puts home the rebound.
Mankato 1, UND 1 — Carter Rowney (Dillon Simpson, Rocco Grimaldi) 10:04. Grimaldi hits Simpson at the point and the junior skates right to left, the sees Rowney backdoor. He fires a pass that Rowney redirects high into the net to tie the game.
UND 2, Mankato 1 — Mark MacMillan 17:10 (sh). Williams holds the puck behind the net while MSU is on the power play, but MacMillan steals it from him, brings it to the front and scores.
UND 2, Mankato 2 — Eriah Hayes (Matt Leitner, Zach Palmquist) 17:27 (pp). Hayes, standing on top of the crease, re-directs a Leitner shot to tie the game just 17 seconds after MacMillan’s goal.
UND 3, Mankato 2 — Stephane Pattyn 6:46. Pattyn strips Palmquist of the puck, walks in alone and scores to give UND the lead. It has Pattyn’s first goal since Nov. 3.
UND 4, Mankato 2 — Rocco Grimaldi (Carter Rowney) 19:24 (en). Rowney flips a pass out of the zone, Grimaldi chases it down, circles the net and scores into the empty net.
