First period

Colorado College 1, UND 0 — Peter Stoykewych 16:43. Stoykewych gets the puck at the point and blasts one that hits the stick of Parks, falls into a crowd of players in the slot area and trickles five-hole on Gothberg.

Second period

Colorado College 2, UND 0 — Scott Wamsganz (Peter Stoykewych) 1:17. Wamsganz skates the puck in the zone going from left to right. When he reaches the top of the right circle, he snaps a wrist shot past Gothberg from the top of the right circle, going stick side.

Colorado College 2, UND 1 — Drake Caggiula (Nick Mattson) 3:45. Slavin rimmed one around the boards, but Mattson holds it at the point and launches a shot to the crease area. Caggiula tips the puck on goal, but Thorimbert can’t cover. Thorimbert stops Caggiula’s first rebound attempt, but he scores on the second one.

Third period

Colorado College 2, UND 2 — Jordan Schmaltz (Drake Caggiula, Mark MacMillan) 16:04. Schmaltz starts a transition play from his own end and UND has a three-on-two. Caggiula rushes it up the right wing and centers it to Schmaltz, who catches it on his backhand and lifts it past Thorimbert’s stick.


Colorado College 3, UND 2 — Alex Roos (Sam Rothstein, Scott Wamsganz) 7:00. Rothstein takes a shot from the slot area that Gothberg kicks to the right circle, where Roos picks it up and sends it to Game 3.

    Sitting 14th in the Pairwise rankings. That said, dangerously close to being on the verge of not making the NCAA Tournament. Time to make a run.

    Cant believe after a second half like we had, that making the tournament comes down to a must win situation tomorrow. 15th now in the pairwise. Unbelievable. Still not sure what our d was thinking in OT. How can you come around the net and not even look to see if anyone is coming right at you?

    Win or season is over tomorrow, and then need a good showing next weekend at the NCHC tourney. 3rd place game could turn out to be a bad thing for bubble teams in situations like this
