Gameday final: UND 7, CC 2

Viewing: NCHC.tv. Notes: Two lineup changes for UND. Mattson and Poganski and in for Thompson and Chyzyk. UND also juggles the bottom two lines. CC goes with Marble in net again.

First period

UND 1, Colorado College 0 — Mark MacMillan (Michael Parks) 5:50 (sh). Harstad’s stick breaks on an attempt of a point shot and Parks wins a race to the puck starting a 2-on-1. He sends the puck over to MacMillan before a CC back-checker can get in position. Mark catches it on his forehand, sees Marble move over, then goes to the middle and scores on the backhand.

UND 2, Colorado College 0 — Paul LaDue (Mark MacMillan, Nick Mattson) 9:23 (pp). After a quick zone entry, MacMillan ends up with the puck behind the net. He spots LaDue walking down the shot, hits him for a pass and LaDue buries it.

UND 3, Colorado College 0 — Tucker Poolman (Nick Schmaltz, Drake Caggiula) 15:05 (pp). UND wastes no time scoring after a five-minute major is called on Fejes for checking Gaarder from behind. Poolman blasts one through a Johnson screen for the first of his career.

UND 4, Colorado College 0 — Jordan Schmaltz (Nick Schmaltz, Drake Caggiula) 16:31 (pp). Nick makes a play to draw a defender toward him at the top of the right circle, then dishes it to his brother, who blasts one past the glove of Marble. After the goal, Marble is pulled for Perry.

Second period

UND 4, Colorado College 1 — Cody Bradley (Ian Young) 11:43. Young spots Bradley behind the UND defenders and hits him with a stretch pass to send Bradley on a clean breakaway. He shoots stick side and scores.

Third period

UND 5, Colorado College 1 — Paul LaDue (Johnny Simonson, Mark MacMillan) 3:26 (pp). UND converts another major power play as Simonson tees one up for LaDue, who blasts a shot through a screen for his second of the game.

UND 6, Colorado College 1 — Mark MacMillan, (Paul LaDue, Michael Parks) 6:19 (pp). LaDue cuts toward the net at the bottom of the right circle and launches a shot that MacMillan tips past Perry.

UND 6, Colorado College 2 — Teemu Kivihalme (Scott Wamsganz, Jaccob Slavin) 10:32 (pp). Kivihalme tees one up at the top of the left circle and blasts it past McIntyre on the stick side.

First period

UND 1, Colorado College 0 — Mark MacMillan (Michael Parks) 16:33 (pp). Parks takes the puck from the wall to the crease area, where UND’s three forwards crash. MacMillan finds it and scores his first of the year on a shortened, 49-second power play.

UND 2, Colorado College 0 — Brendan O’Donnell (Connor Gaarder, Paul LaDue) 17:17. Gaarder gets the puck in the corner and protects it as he walks the back wall before finding O’Donnell camped on top of the crease. Gaarder hits him with a perfect pass and O’Donnell sneaks a shot five-hole.

Gameday final: UND 2, BSU 1

Notes: I’VE TWEETED AND RE-TWEETED A BUNCH OF TV INFO. SEE IF YOU CAN FIND YOUR INFO HERE: www.twitter.com/schlossmangf. In Grand Forks, it’s Channel 597. UND changes just about everything except for the Caggiula-Johnson-Schmaltz line. Simonson, Olson and Poolman will make their college debuts.

First period

UND 1, BSU 0 — Colten St. Clair (Connor Gaarder, Brendan O’Donnell) 14:17. O’Donnell and St. Clair enter the zone on a partial 2-on-1. They execute a give-and-go. Walsh shuts down St. Clair from a bad angle, but the rebound drops on top of the crease. Gaarder takes one swing and the puck comes out to the side of the crease, where St. Clair snipes it from just across the end line.

Second period

UND 2, BSU 0 — Stephane Pattyn (Troy Stecher, Gage Ausmus) 16:19 (sh). The Beavers start a 4×3 power play. Ausmus chips the puck out of the zone to Stecher, who gets it on the right wing with one defenseman in the play. Right as he crosses the blue line, the matching minors to Pattyn and BSU’s Rendle end and he comes out of the box. Nobody on BSU sees Pattyn and everyone is playing Stecher on the right wing. Stecher slides the pass over to Pattyn, who has a wide open net.

Third period

UND 2, BSU 1 — Myles Fitzgerald (Gerry Fitzgerald, Brett Beauvais) 4:18 (pp). On power-play chance No. 7 of the night, the Beavs finally capitalize. One of the triplets, Myles, finds a rebound out front and puts it away. Beauvais starts the madness with a shot from the point.

First period

Bemidji State 1, UND 0 — Brendan Harms 11:26 (sh). Ward starts a shorthanded rush, but dumps the puck in the corner. He goes after it, fights off a hit and the puck goes to the right circle, where Harms is standing all alone. He blasts one just inside the post ofr a shorthanded goal.

Second period

Bemidji State 2, UND 0 — Brendan Harms (Markus Gerbrandt) 9:09. After a turnover, Gerbrandt gets the puck in the left circle with a 3-on-2 rush, he spots Harms, the trailer, and hits him. Harms fires one past McIntyre for his second of the game.

Bemidji State 3, UND 0 — Markus Gerbrandt (Ruslan Pedan) 15:46 (pp). Pedan launches a shot from the point that McIntyre stops. It falls right by his feet, but he doesn’t know where it is. Gerbrandt finds it and knocks it home for a power-play goal.

Bemidji State 4, UND 0 — Sam Rendle (Phillip Marinaccio) 17:35. Another defensive breakdown for UND, another goal for BSU. An odd-man situation and Marinaccio finds Rendle wide open in the high slot for a five-hole goal.

Bemidji State 5, UND 0 — Charlie O’Connor (Mitch Cain, Phil Brewer) 17:50. McIntyre gets pulled and Cam Johnson lets in a soft one just 15 seconds into his college career. O’Connor throws a bad angle shot at the net that gets under Johnson.

Third period

Bemidji State 5, UND 1 — Nick Schmaltz (Paul LaDue, Drake Caggiula) 13:08 (pp). LaDue is open for a shot in the high slot. Bitzer stops it and leaves the rebound just to the side of the net. Nick jumps on it and sneaks the puck underneath Bitzer to break up the shutout bid.

First period

UND 1, Manitoba 0 — Luke Johnson (Jordan Schmaltz, Drake Caggiula) 16:17 (pp). Jordan walks the along the blue line and fires a shot on goal. Dubyk makes the initial save, but Johnson is standing on top of the crease and knocks it home.

Second period

Vermont 1, UND 0 — Cassidy Campeau (Delia McNally) 2:21. McNally has the puck behind the net and attempts to throw it out front. The puck hits the side of the cage and bounces to Campeau at the side of the crease. Campeau quickly swats it with the backhand and it goes five-hole on Shaw.

Vermont 1, UND 1 — Josefine Jakobsen (Meghan Dufault, Becca Kohler) 2:38. Kohler, standing at the right point, sends a pass to the slot area for Dufault, who tips the puck on net. Litchfield makes the initial save, but Jakobsen finds the rebound.

Third period

Women’s final: UND 7, RPI 1

Notes: Line charts list Gracen Hirschy and Sam LaShomb up front. Lisa Marvin, Christina LaCombe and Kara Tupa are scratches.

First period

UND 1, RPI 0 — Becca Kohler (Meghan Dufault, Josefine Jakobsen) 7:28 (pp). UND’s Canadian National Teamers strike first on the power play. Dufault skates the puck in the zone 2-on-2, draws both defenders to her and dishes to Kohler, who snipes it glove side.

Second period

UND 2, RPI 0 — Josefine Jakobsen (Meghan Dufault) 2:35. Dufault carried the puck behind the net, appearing like she was going to circle it. But when she got directly behind the net, Dufault threw a behind-the-back pass out front to Jakobsen, who quickly tapped it past O’Brien before she got back in position.

UND 3, RPI 0 — Becca Kohler (Meghan Dufault, Halli Krzyzaniak) 7:58. Dufault dished the puck to Kohler, standing in the left circle and started to move toward the net. Kohler picked it up and sniped it glove side for her second goal of the game. The three players who pick up points were all at the Canadian camp together last week.

UND 4, RPI 0 — Marissa Salo (Shannon Kaiser, Tori Williams) 15:05. Williams sent Kaiser up the left wing on a rush. An RPI defenseman cut off Kaiser, but the puck dropped back between the hash marks, where Salo followed up to score her first-career goal.

Third period

UND 5, RPI 0 — Andrea Dalen 1:52 (sh). Dalen picked up the puck in her own zone, skated it 1-on-1 all the way until she got to the right faceoff dot, then ripped a wrist shot off the far post for a shorthanded goal.

UND 6, RPI 0 — Becca Kohler (Meghan Dufault) 9:02. Dufault makes a great chip pass off the glass to herself to start a 2-on-1 rush. Dufault holds it as long as possible, then sets up Kohler for a tap-in for her first-career hat trick.

UND 7, RPI 0 — Marissa Salo (Sam LaShomb) 15:12. Salo entered the zone on a 2-on-1 rush with LaShomb and took the shot herself. The goaltender made the save, but Salo followed it up and scored on the rebound.

UND 7, RPI 1 — Shayna Tomlinson 16:03. UND turns the puck over in front of its own net and Tomlinson gets one past Amsley-Benzie to break up the shutout bid.

Third period

Minnesota 1, UND 0 — Sam Warning (Kyle Rau) 10:51. The Gophers get a puck to the slot area with traffic and it eventually goes to the side of the net, where Warning picks it up with his backhand and puts it behind Gothberg.

Minnesota 1, UND 1 — Connor Gaarder (Dillon Simpson, Jordan Schmaltz) 11:23. Gaarder skates the puck up the left wing on a rush and flips a backhand that Wilcox stops. The rebound is sitting next to the side of the net and Gaarder slaps at it. It goes off of Wilcox and in to tie the game.

Minnesota 2, UND 1 — Justin Holl (Kyle Rau, Brady Skjei) 19:59 (sh). UND losses in stunning fashion, giving up a shorthanded goal with less than a second left. The Gophers start a rush shorthanded. Rau’s shot is blocked by Schmaltz, it goes right to Holl, who puts it just inside the right post.

Second period

Ferris State 1, UND 0 — Cory Kane 7:31. Kane skates into the zone and snaps a wrist shot from the top of the circle unscreened that beats Gothberg five-hole. Probably one that Gothberg will want back.

Ferris State 1, UND 1 — Stephane Pattyn (Paul LaDue, Nick Mattson) 10:40 (pp). UND has a brief :13 five-on-three power play. Right after it ends, Mattson sets up LaDue for a one-timer. Pattyn deflects that shot past Motte. It is Motte’s first goal allowed in 50 shots in the weekend.

Gameday final: UND 5, UW 2

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: ESPNU, ESPN3. Lineup notes: UND makes one switch, going with Andrew Panzarella for Mitch MacMillan. Otherwise, no surprises. Full lines and live chat (will show up soon) are below.

First period

UND 1, Wisconsin 0 — Michael Parks (Drake Caggiula, Mark MacMillan) 5:06. MacMillan is playing back to cover for a pinching Stecher and he makes a great hold at the point, sending the puck down low. Caggiula picks it off the wall and centers to Parks, who makes a poised play to move the puck around Rumpel and score.

UND 1, Wisconsin 1 — Jedd Soleway (Joseph LaBate, Kevin Schulze) 11:41 (pp). Tough sequence for UND, right after Simpson gets injured on a boarding that doesn’t get called, UW comes down and scores. Schmaltz misses a poke check and Soleway puts one off the post and in for his first-career goal.

Second period

UND 2, Wisconsin 1 — Rocco Grimaldi 7:45. McCabe sends a pass up the middle, but Grimaldi picks it off in the neutral zone and uses his great speed to get a chance. He flips a backhand from between the hashes past Rumpel’s blocker to give UND the lead.

Third period

UND 2, Wisconsin 2 — Tyler Barnes (Nic Kerdiles, Mark Zengerle) 9:32. A puck takes an awkward hop in UND’s defensive zone — Kerdiles fails to pick it up and two UND players take the wrong path to it not knowing where it was. Barnes picks it up, skates a couple of strides and rips a wrist shot past Gothberg on the glove side.

UND 3, Wisconsin 2 — Mark MacMillan (Brendan O’Donnell, Michael Parks) 18:16. O’Donnell has the puck at the right point on a rush and blasts one toward the net where there is traffic. The puck hits MacMillan and gets behind Rumpel for the go-ahead goal.

UND 4, Wisconsin 2 — Rocco Grimaldi (Paul LaDue, Mark MacMillan) 19:01 (en). Grimaldi gets to the halfwall and flips a blind backhand down the ice. It happens to be on net and it goes in.

UND 5, Wisconsin 2 — Rocco Grimaldi. Grimaldi picks up a loose puck in the zone and skates it coast to coast to finish off the hat trick and the game.
