First period

Second period

UND 2, Denver 0 — Nick Schmaltz (Bryn Chyzyk, Keaton Thompson) 6:09. Thompson makes a long outlet pass to Chyzyk along the left wall to spring a two-on-one rush. Chyzyk freezes the goalie by faking a shot before dishing to Nick, who finishes it.

UND 3, Denver 0 — Drake Caggiula (Michael Parks, Nick Mattson) 8:04. Mattson makes a nice outlet pass to start a rush. Parks flies up the right wing and carries the puck to the bottom of the right circle before centering to Caggiula, who finished it.

First period

Second period

Denver 2, UND 0 — Quentin Shore (Ty Loney, Evan Cowley) 12:49 (pp). After a clear, Cowley quickly turns the play the other way for a power-play rush. Loney skates it deep up the right wing and centers one to Shore, who tips it high over McIntyre from point-blank range.

Third period

Denver 2, UND 1 — Bryn Chyzyk (Connor Gaarder, Stephane Pattyn) 4:05. Pattyn goes forward with an offensive zone draw. Gaarder gets to it, makes a perfect backhand dish to Chyzyk, who buries it on top of the crease in his first game back from injury.

Denver 3, UND 1 — Joey LaLeggia (Danton Heinen, Gabe Levin) 7:51. Skating at 4-on-4, Heinen spots LaLeggia pinching on the back side of the play. The Pioneer defenseman was left wide open and he made no mistake, beating McIntyre high stick side.

Gameday final: UND 7, LSSU 4

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: Midco Sports Network, NCHC.tv. Lineup notes: Cam Johnson gets his first-career start tonight against the Lakers (here’s our Q&A if you want to learn more about him). Coltyn Sanderson also is in for Johnny Simonson up front. Poolman is back in at D. Mattson is the odd-man out.

First period

Lake Superior State 1, UND 0 — Kyle Chatham 9:35. Chatham gets a puck at the point and launches a shot through traffic. It appears to glance off a UND D and into the net to give the Lakers an early lead.

Lake Superior State 2, UND 0 — Gus Correale (James Roll, Stephen Perfetto) 15:15. Roll takes a point shot that deflects to the side of the net. Correale picks it up, skates behind the net and wraps it. Johnson is slow getting from post to post.

Second period

Lake Superior State 3, UND 0 — Eric Drapluk (Chris Ciotti, Aidan Wright) :54. Cam Johnson’s first start ends after kicking out a couple of huge rebounds, the final one to Drapluk, who easily makes it 3-0.

Lake Superior State 3, UND 1 — Trevor Olson (Coltyn Sanderson, Austin Poganski) 4:57. Sanderson picks the puck off the wall and curls to the top of the right circle. He launches a shot that Olson tips over the goaltender.

Lake Superior State 4, UND 2 — Tucker Poolman (Nick Schmaltz, Jordan Schmaltz) 12:35 (pp). Schmaltz has the puck in the left circle and spots Poolman in the right circle. He hits him with a perfect pass and Poolman rips a shot off the back bar.

Lake Superior State 4, UND 3 — Mark MacMillan (Michael Parks, Stephane Pattyn) 14:01. Parks throws a puck to the top of the crease, where MacMillan is camped out. He finds the rebound, moves it to his forehand and scores.

Lake Superior State 4, UND 4 — Tucker Poolman (Michael Parks, Mark MacMillan) 18:46 (pp). Nick Schmaltz dishes the puck MacMillan at the side of the net. He feeds Parks in the slot. Defiel stops Parks’ blast, but Poolman buries the rebound for his second of the game.

UND 5, Lake Superior State 4 — Connor Gaarder (Brendan O’Donnell, Luke Johnson) 19:21. On the next shift, O’Donnell tees one up for Gaarder in the high slot. He blasts one by Defiel to give UND its first lead of the night.

Third period

UND 6, Lake Superior State 4 — Michael Parks (Jordan Schmaltz, Nick Schmaltz) 17:09 (pp). Jordan Schmaltz blasts one from the point that hits the crossbar. The rebound goes to the slot area, where Parks buries it. UND goes 3-for-4 on the power play.

Gameday final: UND 3, Omaha 2

TONIGHT’S VIEWING: Midco Sports Network, Fox College Sports Pacific, DirecTV 608-2, DISH 449. Lineup notes: Panzarella is in for Mattson on D. UND shuffles three forward lines. Poolman goes to the left side on a line with Johnson and Schmaltz. Simonson to the middle. Omaha makes one change with Gallo going from D to RW on the fourth line and Rideout coming in. Polk is out.

First period

UND 1, Omaha 0 — Jordan Schmaltz (Drake Caggiula, Nick Schmaltz) 2:02 (pp). Caggiula, carrying the puck behind the net, spots Jordan pinching in from the point and makes a perfect feed. Schmaltz snaps one by Massa for his second of the season. It’s the first power-play goal allowed this season for Omaha.

UND 2, Omaha 0 — Mark MacMillan (Drake Caggiula, Michael Parks) 12:36. UND cycles behind the net and Caggiula tries to pull it out front. He loses control, but MacMillan picks it up, carries it between the dots and flips a backhand past a screened Massa.

Second period

UND 2, Omaha 1 — Jake Randolph (Tyler Vesel) 15:52. Omaha cycles the puck with lots of possession. The puck eventually gets to the side of the net, where Vesel pokes it out front. Randolph finds it in traffic and roofs a backhand with one swat at the puck.

UND 3, Omaha 1 — Stephane Pattyn (Michael Parks) 18:07 (sh). Parks makes an outstanding play to pick the puck off the wall and slip a between-the-legs pass to Pattyn, who also makes a nifty play, catching the puck and between his legs to stay onsides. He then skates to the dot and snipes the glove-side corner of the net for UND’s eighth shorthanded goal of the year.

Third period

UND 3, Omaha 2 — Grant Gallo (Brian O’Rourke) 13:48. O’Rourke launches a point shot that hits traffic in front and lands on top of the crease. Gallo takes a swat at it and it goes five-hole on McIntyre.

Second period

UND 2, St. Cloud State 0 — Kayla Gardner (Shannon Kaiser, Marissa Salo) 5:19. Kaiser led a two-on-one rush up the right wing and made a perfect pass around the defenseman from the outside of the right circle to Gardner, who was cutting backdoor. Friend moved over quickly, but Gardner roofed the shot for her first of the season.

UND 3, St. Cloud State 0 — Josefine Jakobsen (Andrea Dalen) 16:00 (pp). Jakobsen circles the net protecting the puck on her backhand, skates to the circle, turns around and snaps one five hole on Friend. The goal snaps an 11-game point drought for Jakobsen dating back to Oct. 10.

Third period

UND 4, St. Cloud State 0 — Gracen Hirschy (Becca Kohler, Halli Krzyzaniak) 6:18 (pp). Kohler stick-handles around a Husky defender to gain space.

UND 5, St. Cloud State 0 — Becca Kohler (Meghan Dufault, Halli Krzyzaniak) 8:16. Krzyzaniak launches a point shot and Friend kicks out the rebound. Dufault pokes it free to the side of the net, where Kohler sweeps it in for her third point of the game.

UND 5, St. Cloud State 1 — Lexi Slattery (Amanda Arobogast, Kelsey Saelens) 16:04. The Huskies get the puck to the net and swing away during a scramble. Eventually, Slattery puts it away to snap a goal drought of 332:10.

UND 1, Omaha 1 — Tyler Vesel (Jake Randolph, Justin Parizek) 8:12. Omaha comes down and ties it on the next shift. Randolph makes a fantastic play, pulling the puck off the end wall and making a perfect spin pass with his backhand out front to Vesel, who one-times it in.
