First period

UND 1, SCSU 0 — Drake Caggiula (Troy Stecher, Gage Ausmus) 3:10. Caggiula brings the puck up the right wing and dangles SCSU captain Gravel, putting the puck between his legs, skating around him and sniping the top shelf on the short side for the goal.

No scoring.

SCSU 2, UND 1 — Kalle Kossila (Ben Storm, Niklas Nevalainen) 4:32. Storm has room to shoot at the point and gets one off. It it stopped, but Kossila finds the rebound and easily puts it in.

  1. Not sure about everyone else, but I sure am sick of seeing this team year after year come out in the third period with a lead and then sit back and watch the rest of the game. No reason they should have lost tonight. Absolutely unacceptable on home ice.

  2. 1.) Maybe, as expected in the offseason, this team will have some trouble finding out who will score for them.

    2.) Why do some St. Cloud players have black facemasks an others have white? Personal preference?
