Northern Michigan 1, UND 0 — Shane Sooth (Ryan Daugherty, Mitch Jones) 15:20 (pp). Daugherty has the puck at the side of the goal and feeds it back to Sooth in the high slot. Pattyn was shadowing Sooth, but the Californian still got enough room to snap a shot past Gothberg’s left pad.
Northern Michigan 1, UND 1 — Gage Ausmus (Michael Parks, Paul LaDue) 10:35. LaDue pinches along the right wall and keeps the puck in the zone. Parks picks up the puck, carries it toward the net and spots Ausmus in the left circle. He sends a pass to him and Ausmus snipes the corner of the net.
UND 2, Northern Michigan 1 — Drake Caggiula (Rocco Grimaldi, Luke Johnson) 14:12. Grimaldi has the puck behind the net and spots Caggiula cutting down the slot. Grimaldi makes a perfect centering feed and Caggiula snaps it home stick side.
UND 3, Northern Michigan 1 — Derek Rodwell (Stephane Pattyn, Jordan Schmaltz) 19:25 (en). Pattyn skates the puck out of the zone, feeds it to Rodwell, who skates it in and scores into the empty net.
