UND 4, Alaska Anchorage 3

The story: Trailing by two goals in the third, UND scores three times in the span of 1:24, including two by senior center Rhett Gardner in the span of 41 seconds and UND escapes with the win. Defenseman Jacob Bernard-Docker had two assists for a four-point weekend.

Three stars: 1. Rhett Gardner, UND, 2 goals; 2. Jacob Bernard-Docker, UND, 1 goal, 1 assist; 3. Nicholas Erb Ekholm, UAA, 2 goals.

Did you notice? UND honored longtime NHL referee Thor Nelson, a former Minot High player, before the game. Nelson retired in 2013 after more than 20 seasons and 1,000 NHL games.

Lineup notes: Both teams changed starting goalies from Friday night. UND went with freshman Adam Scheel, while the Seawolves started rookie Kristian Stead. UND played its fifth-straight game without senior center Nick Jones. UND also scratched forward Zach Yon, defenseman Andrew Peski and defenseman Josh Rieger.
