Second period

UND 1, Simon Fraser 0 — Rocco Grimaldi (Jordan Schmaltz, Dillon Simpson) 6:28 (pp). Grimaldi sets up with the puck at the top of the left circle and blasts a slap shot past the SFU goaltender.

UND 1, Simon Fraser 1 — Scott Brkich (Jesse Williamson, Graham Smerek) 13:14 (pp). Off of a draw, UND’s forwards get mixed up and nobody covers the point. Brkich blasts one through traffic to tie the game.

Simon Fraser 2, UND 1 — Taylor Piller :59. Piller puts home a centering pass to give SFU the lead. Perfectly converted two-on-one.

Simon Fraser 2, UND 2 — Dillon Simpson (Andrew Panzarella) 6:28. Panzarella makes a big hit to separate the puck from an SFU player. It goes to Simpson at the point and he blasts it through traffic to tie the game.

UND 3, Simon Fraser 2 — Stephane Pattyn 7:10. Pattyn flies up the left wing and snaps a shot past Gordon on the short side from the left circle.

UND 3, Simon Fraser 3 — Nick Sandor (Jono Cici) 9:55 (pp). SFU capitalizes on a five-on-three power play as Cici finds Sandor backdoor for a tap-in goal.

UND 4, Simon Fraser 3 — Dillon Simpson (Drake Caggiula, Michael Parks) 15:55. Simpson walks a guy at the point, and attempts a shot from the slot area. That shot is stopped, but he picks up the rebound and wraps it for a go-ahead goal.

    I heard we have an amazing recruiting class coming in next year, is that suppose to be true? And if so I hope it’s mostly forwards that can actually score goals because this team is in desperate need of it!

    If they are not going to take these games seriously and embarrass themselves, next time the program better think long and hard about where they send them on vacation and/if it is worth it. Let’s hope this is a BIG BIG wake up call.

  3. Ya sure u betcha

    I didn’t listen to the game, but I have always felt that if your offense can score 3 goals your defense and goaltender should be able to hold the opponent to 2 or less goals. I am betting their are not too many D1 goaltenders with a goals against percentage north of 2.5.
