Gameday final: MSU-Mankato 2, UND 1, OT

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: If you get Charter Cable, it will be on that channel. Otherwise, you can purchase a webcast at www.americaonesports.com. Last night, we were told that the webcast quality was not very good. So, if you don’t want to buy it, listen to Tim Hennessy and join us on the live chat. Lineup notes: O’Donnell goes from healthy scratch to top-line winger. Caggiula goes from top-line winger to healthy scratch. Otherwise, the lineup stays the same for both teams. Full lines and live chat below.

First period

UND 1, Mankato 0 — Danny Kristo (Brendan O’Donnell, Corban Knight) 1:03. O’Donnell snaps a shot that should have been fairly easy for Williams to catch. He unknowingly drops it at his feet and Kristo comes in and puts it away.

Second period

UND 1, MSU 1 — Dylan Margonari (Max Gaede, Tyler Elbrecht) 19:34. Margonari carries the puck in the zone on a two-on-one and takes the shot from the left circle. It goes off the post and in to tie the game.

Third period

No scoring.

Overtime

Mankato 2, UND 1 — Brett Knowles (J.P. Lafontaine, Eriah Hayes) 3:22. Lafontaine finds Knowles on the back door for the game-winner. UND doesn’t get a share of the MacNaughton Cup.

  1. Rhetorical question, nobody needs to answer – but why do they keep taking Rocco off KK line? Thought it was working quite well.
