Duluth 1, UND 0 — Alex Iafallo (Joe Basaraba, Willie Raskob) 7:28 (pp). At the tail end of a power play, Raskob shoots at Basaraba’s skate and the puck goes off of his skate and to the net front. Saunders stops the deflection, but Iafallo gets the rebound.
Duluth 1, UND 1 — Dillon Simpson (Rocco Grimaldi, Drake Caggiula) 10:18 (pp). UND has an abbreviated power play for :52 and takes advantage. Simpson slaps a shot through a Caggiula screen to tie the game.
Duluth 2, UND 1 — Adam Krause (Tony Cameranesi, Austin Farley) 17:32. Mattson gets taken down in the offensive zone and it allows Duluth to go on a 3-on-1 the other way. Cameranesi drops a pass to Krause, who beats Saunders stick side.
Duluth 3, UND 1 — Austin Farley (Willie Raskob, Tony Cameranesi) 19:49 (pp). After Rodwell takes a bad penalty behind the play, the Bulldogs capitalize when Farley skates the puck to the top of the circle and snipes the blocker-side corner of the net.
Duluth 3, UND 2 — Paul LaDue (Mitch MacMillan, Wade Murphy) 7:08. Murphy made a nice pass to Mitch, who was standing in the left circle. Mitch’s shot hit Crandall in the face and flew all the way out to LaDue in the high slot. LaDue snapped it stick side for his first-career goal.
Duluth 4, UND 2 — Sammy Spurrell 18:48. UND nearly ties the game as LaDue goes coast-to-coast and drops a pass for Murphy, but Murphy fans on a shot and Duluth goes the other way with numbers. Spurrell, who didn’t play Friday night, snipes the glove-side corner of the net.
Duluth 5, UND 2 — Adam Krause (Willie Raskob, Tony Cameranesi) 6:30. A loose puck goes to Krause in the high slot and he quickly puts a shot on goal. The puck beats Gothberg five-hole.
Duluth 5, UND 3 — Bryn Chyzyk (Rocco Grimaldi, Dillon Simpson) 14:42. Chyzyk carries a loose puck from the right-side wall to the slot area, fighting off checks. When he gets there, Chyzyk snaps one five-hole on Crandall.
Duluth 6, UND 3 — Joe Basaraba (Alex Iafallo) 18:58 (en). Basaraba ices it by scoring into an empty net.
