UND 1, Omaha 1 — Matt Miller (Jack Randl, Jake Pivonka) 7:59. Randl attempts a wraparound and gets UND goalie Drew DeRidder down and out of the play. The puck trickles to the slot, where Miller backhands one past DeRidder.

UND 2, Omaha 1 — Chris Jandric (Owen McLaughlin, Dylan James) 16:58. James sees McLaughlin in space at the top of the zone and gives it to him. McLaughlin walks it down the slot, stick handles around Mav defenseman Victor Mancini and feeds Jandric, who buries it. It's two goals by two seniors on Senior Day.
