UND 1, Vermont 0 — Rocco Grimaldi (Jordan Schmaltz, Drake Caggiula) 10:58. Caggiula makes an outstanding play to hold the puck in the zone at the blue line and create space. He gives it to Schmaltz at the inside of the right circle and Schmaltz dishes a cross-crease pass to Grimaldi for a one-timer.
UND 2, Vermont 0 — Drake Caggiula (Adam Tambellini) 19:17. Caggiula rushes the puck up the right wing on his backhand with Tambellini cutting down the slot. Santaguida thinks Caggiula is going to center it but he goes top shelf on the short side with his backhand.
UND 2, Vermont 1 — Robert Polesello (Jonathan Turk) 3:34. Polesello tries to drag the puck between a couple of sticks. The puck eventually gets through and he wrists a shot from the left circle that goes off of Gothberg’s glove and trickles in. Gothberg’s shutout streak to start the season ends at 57:57.
UND 2, Vermont 2 — Chris McCarthy (Nick Bruneteau, Rob Hamilton) 17:14 (sh). McCarthy carries the puck on a two-on-one up the left wing. He fakes a shot, cuts to the middle and scores high glove to tie the game.
