Tonight’s viewing: Webcast at undsports.com. Lineup notes: Panzarella replaces Ausmus on defense. Saunders starts in goal. Thompson starting for Omaha in net. Full lines and live chat below.
UND 1, Omaha 0 — Derek Rodwell (Coltyn Sanderson, Stephane Pattyn) 2:26. Rodwell tips a pass into the zone and it slow rolls toward the goalie Thompson. He thinks he covers the puck easily, but it unknowingly rolls behind him. Thompson has no clue and Rodwell crashes in hard and knocks it in.
UND 1, Omaha 1 — Ian Brady (Johnnie Searfoss, Jake Guentzel) 15:21 (pp). Brady makes a nice move to get to the middle of the nice and snipes the stick-side corner of the net. LaDue may have screened Saunders on the shot.
UND 2, Omaha 1 — Michael Parks (Paul LaDue) 6:11 (sh). UND scores one of the oddest odd-man rush goals you will see. Parks starts a two-on-one with Johnson. Young falls down and UND has a two-on-zero. Parks keeps it on the right wing, stops right at the crease, holds the puck and eventually puts it five-hole. Omaha goalie Kirk Thompson yanked after it.
UND 3, Omaha 1 — Drake Caggiula (Rocco Grimaldi, Nick Mattson) 8:52. Grimaldi transitions a puck quickly in the neutral zone and starts a rush the other way. He hits Caggiula as he’s cutting down the slot. Caggiula takes taken out but the puck goes off of his skate and in.
UND 3, Omaha 2 — Josh Archibald (Ryan Walters, Dominic Zombo) 19:48 (pp). Omaha converts a power play with just five seconds left in the advantage when Walters pulls one off the wall and centers to Archibald on top of the crease. Archibald snaps a shot blocker side just inside the post.
