UND 2, St. Cloud State 2, tie The story: UND gave up a two-goal lead in the third period but managed a 2-2 tie to get a point and clinch home-ice advantage for a 16th consecutive season. Grant Mismash and Rhett Gardner scored for UND. Ryan Poehling and Jacob Benson scored for St. Cloud State. UND got the extra point by winning the three-on-three on a goal by Rhett Gardner.
Whether or not UND gets home ice for the first round of league playoffs for a 16th straight season is no longer in the team's hands. UND lost that control when St. Cloud State's Ryan Poehling scored a power-play goal 2 minutes, 48 seconds into overtime to give the Huskies a 4-3 victory in front of 11,923 in Ralph Engelstad Arena. It was another punch to the gut for the Fighting Hawks, who outshot the top-ranked team in the country for all three periods of regulation, only to find another way to lose a close game.
SCSU 4, UND 3, OT The story: Ryan Poehling scored on an overtime power play from the top of the crease to give St. Cloud State the win. It was Poehling's second goal of the game. UND had tied the game with 4:18 to go in regulation to force overtime. Three stars: 1. Ryan Poehling, SCSU, two goals, game-winning goal; 2. Jon Lizotte, SCSU, goal, assist; 3. Nick Jones, UND, goal, assist.

Johnny Simonson grew up in Grand Forks following the UND men’s hockey program and all of its feats. Nobody needs to tell him that the program has reached the NCAA tournament 15 years in a row -- the second-longest stretch in college hockey history. Nobody needs to tell him that UND has been at home for the first round of the playoffs every season since he was eight years old. Simonson already knows all about that.
GRAND FORKS -- In his last game at the 2018 Winter Olympics, University of North Dakota sophomore Ludvig Hoff played against former NHL superstars Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk of Russia. Datsyuk even came over and talked to Hoff and another Norwegian player after the quarterfinal game.
Last summer, the UND women's hockey locker room was empty, except for one stall in the corner. Goalie Kristen Campbell, who was set to transfer to the University of Wisconsin after UND's program was cut, was the last remaining member of the team in Grand Forks. Campbell spent countless hours in the summer in Ralph Engelstad Arena with twin sisters Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando working on their skills.
Grand Forks natives Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux and Warroad's Gigi Marvin appeared on The Ellen Show on Tuesday afternoon. Ellen honored the Lamoureux twins, Marvin and the U.S. Women's Olympic hockey team for winning gold by displaying their jersey on the wall of her set. The Americans won gold by defeating Canada 3-2 in a shootout in the gold-medal game in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Monique scored the game-tying goal late in the third period and Jocelyne scored the game-winning goal in a shootout.
Olympic gold medalists Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando of Grand Forks and Gigi Marvin of Warroad are starting their Victory Tour around the United States today. It will include appearances on The Ellen Show with Ellen DeGeneres and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
