** Jordan Kawaguchi, UND, 3 assists
*** Mark Senden, 1 goal, 2 assists
Canisius 1, UND 0 -- Austin Alger (David Melaragni) 4:05. Canisius scores on its first shot on goal of the night as the Golden Griffins have a 2-on-1 rush and Alger, the Miami transfer, carries the puck up the right side and rockets one past Adam Scheel's glove.
Commentary: Canisius third-line right winger J.D. Pogue gets ejected for a kneeing major, going knee-to-knee with UND captain Colton Poolman. The penalty occurred with eight minutes left in the first. But for the second-straight night, UND failed to score on a major power play. . . Shots on goal after one period are 14-3 UND.
Canisius 1, UND 1 -- Mark Senden (Jordan Kawaguchi, Jacob Bernard-Docker) 7:24. Kawaguchi carries the puck up the left side and beats Canisius defenseman Blake Wareham by a step and sends a pass to the opposite side of the crease, where Senden fights off a check from Nick Hutchinson and buries his first of the season. Canisius challenges it for offside, but the play is onside and Canisius loses its timeout.
UND 2, Canisius 1 -- Collin Adams (Jordan Kawaguchi, Jacob Bernard-Docker) 13:50. Bernard-Docker makes a stretch pass to send Adams on a rush up the left side. Barczewski stops Adams's initial shot, then gets a piece of Kawaguchi's follow-up, but sends the rebound to the opposite circle. By this time, Adams has already circled the net and is there to pick up the rebound and fire it high glove before Barczewski can get over.
UND 3, Canisius 1 -- Gabe Bast (Grant Mismash, Matt Kiersted) 17:25 (pp). UND finally converts its first power-play chance of the season. Mismash knives through the Canisius defense, gets to the left side of the crease, pulls the goalie out of position, then he circles and feeds Bast out front. Bast hammers it home for his first of the season.
Commentary: Scary moment late in the period as Canisuis goalie Jacob Barczewski gets cut in the neck by the skate of Jordan Kawaguchi. Remember, it was last year when Kawaguchi accidentally cut Matt Stief on a bizarre play. Barczewski leaves the game for the final 33 seconds of the period, but returns to start the third. . . Shots through two periods are 30-7 UND.
UND 4, Canisius 1 -- Cole Smith (Jacob Bernard-Docker, Colton Poolman) 1:08. UND sets the tone to start the third, working the puck around the outside as Cole Smith battles Matt Stief down low. Finally, Bernard-Docker gets a lane and hammers a point shot that hits Smith and gets past Barczewski.
UND 5, Canisius 1 -- Harrison Blaisdell (Jacob Bernard-Docker) 1:57. Blaisdell gets his first of the year on a turnover. He finds a loose puck in the slot area on a broken play, hammers it toward the net and it gets past Barczewski, who gets yanked after the goal.
UND 6, Canisius 1 -- Andrew Peski (Shane Pinto, Jordan Kawaguchi) 4:56. UND continues its relentless play as Pinto walks the puck out of the corner and blasts one from the slot. Matt Ladd, who replaced Barczewski, makes the save, but the rebound goes off of Peski's leg and in the net.
UND 7, Canisius 1 -- Cole Smith (Mark Senden, Harrison Blaisdell) 11:35. And the Fighting Hawks aren't letting off the gas at all. Senden, flying up the right side, feeds Smith cutting down the slot for his first goal of the season.
UND 8, Canisius 1 -- Westin Michaud (Judd Caulfield, Gavin Hain) 18:31. Hain starts a 2-on-0 rush. Caulfield bears down on the goalie, makes a fake, then sends a pass to Michaud at the side of the net. Michaud buries it for his first at UND.
Grand Forks native Judd Caulfield and Moorhead's Ethan Frisch are set to make their college hockey debuts. Caulfield is coming in for Jackson Keane and Frisch is in for Jonny Tychonick. Casey Johnson is the extra skater again. . . Adam Scheel is making his second-straight start. . . Canisius makes a change in goal, starting rookie Jacob Barczewski, who entered in the third period Friday in relief for Matt Ladd. . . The Golden Griffins are making a couple of other changes -- MacGregor Sinclair is coming in for Keaton Mastrodonato on the right wing of the fourth line and Nick Parody is in for Logan Gestro on the third defensive pairing. Lincoln Erne is the extra skater instead of John Stampohar.
