Gameday final: UND 5, CC 3

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: Midco Sports Network, Fox College Sports Pacific (DirecTV 608, DISH Network 452), NCHC.tv. Lineup notes: Wade Murphy is out. Colten St. Clair is back in for the first time since Dec. 5. A few lines are juggled. Full lines and live chat are below.

First period

UND 1, Colorado College 0 — Luke Johnson (Paul LaDue, Nick Mattson) 3:50 (pp). UND struggles to get anything set up for the first 1:30 of the power play, but once it does, it converts. Johnson snaps a shot from the top of the circle through a MacMillan screen.

UND 1, Colorado College 1 — Charlie Taft (Peter Stoykewych, Zach Aman) 12:41 (pp). The Tigers even it on their own power play. Fejes is screening McIntyre, so he has trouble controlling the rebound of a point shot and it kicks off to the side, where Taft is there to finish it.

UND 2, Colorado College 1 — Stephane Pattyn (Colten St. Clair, Nick Schmaltz) 13:58. After a terrific shift by the Tigers, UND catches them out of position and goes on a three-on-one. St. Clair, on the right side, shoots far pad and Pattyn finds the rebound.

UND 2, Colorado College 2 — Teemu Kivihalme (Cody Bradley) 18:24 (pp). The Tigers go to 2-for-2 on the power play as Kivihalme blasts one through a Wamsganz screen to even it up.

Second period

UND 3, Colorado College 2 — Mark MacMillan (Michael Parks, Nick Mattson) 17:19. Parks curls out of the corner with the puck and spots MacMillan cutting in the high slot. He puts the pass on MacMillan’s tape and MacMillan snaps one past Marble’s glove.

Third period

UND 4, Colorado College 2 — Bryn Chyzyk (Keaton Thompson, Drake Caggiula) 8:41. Thompson quickly transitions the puck up the ice and UND enters the zone on a rush. Chyzyk releases it from the top of the circle and goes bar down.

UND 4, Colorado College 3 — Aaron Harstad (Matt Hansen, Jaccob Slavin) 18:07 (ex). With the goalie pulled, CC works the puck around top and Harstad blasts one through traffic for the goal.

UND 5, Colorado College 3 — Drake Caggiula 19:33 (en). The Tigers win a draw back, but Caggiula wins the race to the puck and skates it the length of the ice for the empty-netter, fighting off a stick check as he scores it.

Friday night rewind

UND moved into second place in the NCHC standings with a win over Colorado College in front of a sold-out crowd in Ralph Engelstad Arena. Game stories:

Herald – Another shorthander gives UND victory

Herald – CC shows depth of NCHC

UNDsports.com – McIntyre stops 30 in UND win

Other notes:

  • UND moved up to No. 3 in the Pairwise Rankings. One more win tonight would put UND in a strong position for the stretch run.
  • Goalie Zane McIntyre was once again outstanding. He stopped 30 of 31 shots. Only allowed a deflection. Made huge saves in the third period through traffic. He has now allowed just 4 goals in the last 4 games.
  • UND is trying to go 4-0 against Colorado College in the regular season for the first time since 1988-89.
  • UND now has nine shorthanded goals, halfway to the school record. The Hrkac Circus tallied 18 in 1986-87.
  • Michael Parks took over the team lead in scoring with a goal and an assist, surpassing Drake Caggiula.
  • Caggiula got the entire building buzzing with his dangle of Garrett Cecere, putting the puck between the defenders legs and nearly burying one five-hole. Caggiula has put the Tigers on the highlight reel a few times before — one of them a similar goal.
  • Did you notice between-the-benches camera man Marv Leier taking a puck to the helmet? Leier has worn a helmet for years, but says this is the first time he took a puck to the head. The puck also broke the camera’s viewfinder. Leier said one other time he had a viewfinder break. Also, big props to Leier for rocking Dave Starman’s Macon Whoopie jersey.
  • UND only ended up getting one power-play chance after getting a ton of them in Colorado Springs. I’m guessing that the second power-play unit is going to be broken up very soon.
  • Colorado College was significantly better than it was in October in the Springs.

Gameday final: UND 2, CC 1

VIEWING INFO: CBS Sports Network. No webcast. Lineup notes: No surprises for UND. Full lines and live chat are below.

First period

Colorado College 1, UND 0 — Alex Roos (Scott Wamsganz, Cody Bradley) 4:01. Wamsganz holds the puck in the zone with a turnaround shot from just inside the blue line. It goes by Roos, who makes a deflection to get the puck past McIntyre.

Second period

UND 1, Colorado College 1 — Mark MacMillan (Michael Parks, Andrew Panzarella) 16:23. MacMillan got the puck behind the net and faked like he was going for a wraparound one way. He slammed on the brakes and went back the other way, burying the puck as Marble had already slid to the other side.

Third period

UND 2, Colorado College 1 — Michael Parks 6:37 (sh). Slavin can’t handle a puck at the point and Parks skates it alone on a breakaway. He fakes a move to the backhand on top of the crease and slams it home with the forehand.

First period

No scoring.

Second period

UND 1, Niagara 0 — Michael Parks (Jordan Schmaltz) 9:42. Parks enters the zone up the left wing, torches Cecere wide and takes the puck to the far post, where he puts it in to snap a six-game goal drought.

UND 2, Niagara 0 — Mark MacMillan (Luke Johnson, Nick Mattson) 13:12 (pp). Johnson takes a shot from the point that Teichroeb stops, but he leaves the rebound off to the side of the crease, where MacMillan gets it and picks the top half of the net.

UND 3, Niagara 0 — Stephane Pattyn (Keaton Thompson, Wade Murphy) 19:21. Murphy chips a puck back to Thompson, whose blast is re-directed by Pattyn for the goal.

Third period

UND 4, Niagara 0 — Mark MacMillan (Tucker Poolman, Paul LaDue) 3:10. LaDue launches a bomb from the point that gets tipped by Poolman to the side of the net, where MacMillan uses his quick hands to tap it in from a sharp angle.

UND 5, Niagara 0 — Michael Parks (Mark MacMillan, Tucker Poolman) 13:22. UND enters the zone on a two-on-two rush with MacMillan carrying the puck on the left side. He gets to bottom of the left circle and makes a perfect feed to Parks, who is cutting to the net. Parks easily taps it home for his second of the night.

Gameday final: UND 7, Niagara 1

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: Midco Sports Network, NCHC.tv. Lineup notes: UND goes with the exact lineup as Saturday night against Duluth. Full lines and live chat are below.

First period

UND 1, Niagara 0 — Bryn Chyzyk (Nick Mattson) 10:23. Mattson moves the puck up to Chyzyk, who recognizes that the D-man is flat-footed. He speeds around him, takes the puck hard to the net and stuffs it five-hole.

UND 2, Niagara 0 — Stephane Pattyn 14:20. Muto has the puck in his own end and tries a spin pass to his D-partner, but he puts it on Pattyn’s tape in the slot. Pattyn picks the blocker-side corner of the net for his first goal in seven games.

Second period

UND 3, Niagara 0 — Tucker Poolman (Michael Parks, Drake Caggiula) 2:52 (pp). Parks curled out of the corner on his backhand and shipped a pass to Poolman at the point. The East Sider bombed a one-timer past Teichroeb for a power-play goal.

UND 4, Niagara 0 — Austin Poganski (Brendan O’Donnell, Connor Gaarder) 3:30. UND enters the zone on a rush and O’Donnell unloads on a wrist shot. He misses the net high, but Teichroeb slides out of position and the rebound caroms to Poganski, who finishes into an empty net. Teichroeb is pulled after this one.

UND 5, Niagara 0 — Brendan O’Donnell (Connor Gaarder, Austin Poganski) 6:08. Gaarder gets past a defenseman wide on the right side and centers it to O’Donnell, who puts it in the open side of the net.

UND 6, Niagara 0 — Austin Poganski (Jordan Schmaltz, Brendan O’Donnell) 10:50. Poganski is alone at the top of the crease, so Jordan sends a shot there. Poganski collects the rebound and puts it five-hole before being checked to the ground.

Third period

UND 7, Niagara 0 — Bryn Chyzyk (Nick Schmaltz, Jordan Schmaltz) 12:20. Chyzyk brings the puck in the zone on the right side, skates it to the circle and snaps one off the bar for his second goal of the night.

UND 7, Niagara 1 — Albin Karlsson (Sam Alfieri, T.J. Sarcona) 14:10. Karlsson brings the puck in the zone on the right side, attempts a shot and fans on it. He picks the puck back up, though, skates to the dot and snaps one over McIntyre, who isn’t pleased about allowing it.

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: CBS Sports Network. No webcast. Lineup notes: Poolman goes up front to LW on top line with MacMillan and Parks. Panzarella is in at D. Simonson is out. Three of four lines change. Full lines and live chat are below.

First period

Duluth 1, UND 0 — Willie Raskob (Austin Farley, Tony Cameranesi) 7:10. Cameranesi takes a shot from the bottom of the right circle that McIntyre stops, but he can’t spot the puck sitting in front of his pads. Farley takes one whack at it before Raskob gets there and slams the puck five-hole.

Duluth 1, UND 1 — Brendan O’Donnell (Keaton Thompson, Andrew Panzarella) 13:25. Thompson makes a great play to skate the puck in from the point to the left circle before threading a seam pass to O’Donnell. The senior snaps one through a Bulldog defenseman and past Kaskisuo on the far side.

Second period

UND 2, Duluth 1 — Mark MacMillan (Paul LaDue, Zane McIntyre) 6:11. Just after a power play expires, MacMillan lowers his shoulder and dips around Soucy on a rush up the right side, taps the puck toward his forehand and chips one over Kaskisuo.

UND 3, Duluth 1 — Brendan O’Donnell (Connor Gaarder) 10:19. Soucy races to a puck and tries to chip it up the ice, but Gaarder strips it from him and immediately feeds O’Donnell for the tap in.

UND 4, Duluth 1 — Drake Caggiula (Nick Schmaltz, Jordan Schmaltz) 12:47 (pp). Nick makes a brilliant chip pass to send Caggiula in behind the defense. Caggiula snaps a shot that Kaskisuo stops, but Kuhlman accidentally puts it in his own net trying to clear it.

Third period

UND 4, Duluth 2 — Justin Crandall (Willie Raskob, Jared Thomas) 4:04 (pp). Raskob launches a point shot toward the slot area, where the puck hits someone’s stick. The rebound of the tip goes to the side, where Crandall is there to finish it.

UND 5, Duluth 2 — Brendan O’Donnell (Luke Johnson) 9:16. Johnson picks the puck up at the halfwall, spots O’Donnell open with space in the left circle and O’Donnell bombs a one-timer past Kaskisuo.

Third period

Duluth 1, UND 1 — Connor Gaarder (Gage Ausmus, Jordan Schmaltz) 10:05. Gaarder enters the zone on the left side with Ausmus driving the center lane. Gaarder takes the shot and it goes off the far post and in. Kaskisuo will want that one back.

Duluth 2, UND 1 — Tony Cameranesi (Willie Raskob) 11:12. The Bulldogs come right back down the other way and take the lead again when Raskob dangles a UND defender at the point, skates to the right circle and feeds Cameranesi in the left circle.

Gameday final: UND 7, USA 2

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: Midco Sports Network, NCHC.tv. Lineup notes: A nice surprise for UND fans as Shane Gersich got the call to play tonight instead of Auston Matthews. UND starting Cam Johnson. As expected Stecher and St. Clair are still hurt and Nick Schmaltz gets the game off.

First period

UND 1, USA 0 — Tucker Poolman (Jordan Schmaltz, Mark MacMillan) 18:18 (pp). Schmaltz blasts a shot from the point that Opilka stops. The rebound kicks out to the slot, where Poolman finds it among four players and knocks it in on the backhand.

UND 1, USA 1 — Jack Roslovic (Matthew Tkachuk) 19:10. The puck comes to the top of the crease, where Tkachuk appears to inadvertently tip it to the side of the crease. Roslovic is camped out there and rifles one in from a sharp angle.

UND 4, USA 1 — Luke Johnson (Paul LaDue, Drake Caggiula) :53. At the point, LaDue leaves one for Johnson, who takes a stride to the top of the right circle and rips one through traffic, off the crossbar and in.

UND 5, USA 1 — Drake Caggiula (Wade Murphy) 2:55. Murphy helps Caggiula win a battle along the wall. Caggiula gets the puck, skates in alone and roofs one short side from in tight.
