UND 1, Denver 0 -- Matteo Costantini (Judd Caulfield, Brady Ferner) 7:02. Denver defenseman Kyle Mayhew goes hard into the boards and is slow getting up as the puck heads to the neutral zone. Ferner gets the puck and sends it back up the ice to start a 2-on-0 for Caulfield and Costantini. Mayhew emerges from behind the net and almost breaks up the pass from Caulfield to Costantini, but it gets through and the rookie forward buries it.
UND 2, Denver 0 -- Louis Jamernik (Mark Senden) 7:51. Senden forechecks hard behind the net, seals off Denver defenseman Antti Tuomisto from the puck and centers it to Jamernik, who taps it five-hole on Chrona.
UND 2, Denver 1 -- Cameron Wright (Massimo Rizzo) 19:26. UND defenseman Chris Jandric tries a no-look stretch pass from in his own zone at the end of a Fighting Hawks power play. He puts it on Rizzo's tape as Rizzo exits the box to start a three-on-one. Rizzo gives it to Wright, who snipes his third goal of the season.
UND 3, Denver 1 -- Louis Jamernik (Ethan Frisch) 19:31 (pp) (en). Jamernik ices it into the empty net from a tight angle.
