UND 1, St. Cloud State 0 — Trevor Olson (Johnny Simonson, Austin Poganski) 2:53. Poganski corrals a puck in the slot area and does a turnaround shot, which goes to Simonson in the right circle. Simonson hits Olson on the other side of the crease and Olson has a wide-open net for his first-career goal.
UND 2, St. Cloud State 0 — Brendan O’Donnell (Colten St. Clair, Jordan Schmaltz) 4:10. St. Clair sends O’Donnell and Johnson on a 2-on-1 rush. O’Donnell, flying up the right wing, makes a quick stickhandle to get around Prochno, then snipes the glove-side corner of the net.
UND 2, St. Cloud State 1 — Patrick Russell (Jimmy Murray) 5:05. After a turnover in the neutral zone, Russell skates up the right wing on a three-on-one rush. LaDue takes away the pass and lets Russell shoot and he beats McIntyre on the Huskies’ first shot of the game.
UND 3, St. Cloud State 1 — Trevor Olson (Troy Stecher, Austin Poganski) 5:52. Poganski steals a puck from a Husky along the end wall and leaves it back for Stecher, who drives a shot on goal from a sharp angle. Lindgren kicks the rebound out to the slot, where the birthday boy finishes off his second of the game.
UND 3, St. Cloud State 2 — Joey Benik (Niklas Nevalainen) 13:29. Benik skates up the left wing and when he’s about two inches in front of the red line, he snaps one that beats McIntyre from a bad angle on the short side.
