First period

UND 1, Colorado College 0 -- Tyler Kleven (Judd Caulfield, Matt Kiersted) 9:43 (dp). Caulfield starts a rush in his own end, flipping a puck behind the defenders, racing around them and getting it. He ran out of room to get off a shot on the near side, so he tried a wraparound. That didn't work, but he got the puck back and left a pass for Kleven at the point. Kleven launched a shot through a screen by UND freshman Louis Jamernik, who is making his NCAA debut.

Second period

UND 2, Colorado College 0 -- Grant Mismash (Collin Adams, Jordan Kawaguchi) 5:52. UND goalie Adam Scheel starts this play by catching Colorado College in a line change and sending a stretch pass to Kawaguchi, who makes a touch pass to Mismash on the right side of the zone. Mismash dishes it back to Kawaguchi at the top of the right circle. Kawaguchi finds Adams on the left side of the crease and hits him with a pass. Adams leaves it backdoor for Mismash.


UND 3, Colorado College 0 -- Collin Adams (Riese Gaber, Matt Kiersted) 13:20 (pp). UND gets on the board with the extra man as Pinto leaves a pass for Kiersted at the point. Kiersted hammers a point shot that goes off of Gaber before Adams tips it. The puck goes way up in the air, but lands just behind Vernon and trickles across.

Pregame notes

UND is back at full strength with Jake Sanderson and Tyler Kleven back from the World Junior and Harrison Blaisdell back from injury. Shane Pinto, who left the last game in the Pod with an injury, doesn't miss any games. Louis Jamernik is making his NCAA debut as center on the fourth line. Colorado College has three surprises in its lineup: 1. Captain Grant Cruikshank, the team's leading scorer, is out due to appendicitis; 2. Defenseman Connor Mayer is playing left wing on the third line; 3. Goalie Matt Vernon is getting the start after Dominic Basse started the last seven games. It is Vernon's first start since Dec. 11 against Western Michigan.
