Second period

Minnesota Duluth 1, UND 0 -- Blake Biondi (Dominic James, Quinn Olson) 14:51. The Bulldogs finally break the 0-0 deadlock nearly 35 minutes into the game as James slips a nifty pass to Biondi in space and the sophomore forward rips one past UND goalie Zach Driscoll on the blocker side.

Minnesota Duluth 1, UND 1 -- Ethan Frisch (Chris Jandric, Riese Gaber) 19:54 (pp). UND takes advantage of a late power play in the second. Jandric has the puck at the top, fakes a shot and dishes a pass to Frisch in the left circle. Frisch collects the pass, takes a step toward the middle and snaps a shot past Minnesota Duluth goalie Ryan Fanti on the short side.

Third period

UND 2, Minnesota Duluth 1 -- Brendan Budy (Ashton Calder, Connor Ford) 5:05. After UND ices the puck three times in 38 seconds, it wins a defensive zone draw and skates it the other way for a goal. Calder makes a tremendous play to get around a Duluth defender enough on the right side to center a pass to Budy, who is cutting down the slot and taps it five-hole.
