UND 1, Minn. Duluth 0 -- Westin Michaud (Matt Kiersted, Shane Pinto) 3:52. For the second-straight night, the Cloquet, Minn., product gets UND on the board first. Michaud throws a puck from behind the goal line to the top of the crease, attempting to connect with Judd Caulfield. Instead, it appears to go off the stick of Bulldog forward Justin Richards and past goalie Hunter Shepard.
UND 1, Minn. Duluth 1 -- Luke Loheit (Scott Perunovich) 3:42. UND's opening four minutes of the third are poor -- icings, turnovers and failed zone exists. It comes back to haunt. On the same shift that Jesse Jacques hit the post, Loheit gets it in the left circle and snipes it in the corner of the net to tie the game.
Minn. Duluth 2, UND 1 -- Scott Perunovich (Jackson Cates, Noah Cates) 7:42 (pp). Noah Cates wins a battle for the puck with UND forward Mark Senden behind the net and feeds his brother, Jackson, in the left circle. Jackson leaves a feed for Perunovich at the point and the defenseman hammers one past UND goalie Peter Thome for a power-play goal.
Minn. Duluth 2, UND 2 -- Matt Kiersted (Jasper Weatherby) 10:24. Kiersted, who was in the box for a slash during Minnesota Duluth's go-ahead goal, ties it up on a blast from the point with Cole Smith screening Shepard.
UND 3, Minn. Duluth 2 -- Jonny Tychonick (Cole Smith, Andrew Peski) 11:58. UND rallies to take the lead when Tychonick has two attempts from the left point. He puts the second one through a maze of bodies.
For the second consecutive Saturday night, Peter Thome is getting the start in net. Dixon Bowen is out with an undisclosed injury. Jackson Keane is coming into the lineup. Jonny Tychonick is coming in for Ethan Frisch on defense. . . UND is juggling its defensive pairings to put Jacob Bernard-Docker back with Colton Poolman on the top pairing. . .

The Bulldogs are using the exact same lines as Friday. . . UND is wearing its black jerseys for the sixth time this season. The Fighting Hawks are 5-0 in them entering the game.
