Miami 3, UND 2 The story: UND outshot Miami 37-23 but was stymied by RedHawks goalie Ryan Larkin. Miami scored back-to-back goals to break a 1-1 tie in the third period and get the win and a series split. Three stars: 1. Ryan Larkin, Miami, 35 saves; 2. Jordan Kawaguchi, UND, 2 goals; 3. Casey Gilling, Miami, goal, assist.
OXFORD, Ohio -- In one month at UND, freshman Mark Senden has gone from a healthy scratch to someone who was used Friday night on the power play, on the penalty kill, five-on-five and to protect a one-goal lead in the final minute. Not bad for someone who wasn’t supposed to be at UND this season.
OXFORD, Ohio—Adam Scheel returned to his home state Friday night. His family members who made the four-hour drive from the Cleveland area got to see exactly what has made this UND hockey team difficult to beat early this season. Scheel was sharp in net once again, the players in front of him allowed just 17 shots on goal and UND produced enough offense to get a 3-1 victory over Miami University in Goggin Ice Center. It's the fifth-consecutive win for the Fighting Hawks (5-2-1 overall, 1-0 National Collegiate Hockey Conference).
UND 3, Miami 1 The story: Playing in front of friends and family in his native Ohio, goalie Adam Scheel stops 16 of 17 shots to give UND its fifth-straight win. The goals were scored by Matt Kiersted and Mark Senden in the first period, while Rhett Gardner iced it with an empty-netter. Three stars: 1. Mark Senden, UND, game-winning goal; 2. Adam Scheel, UND, 16 saves; 3. Matt Kiersted, UND, goal.

OXFORD, Ohio—The players walked through the loading dock Thursday afternoon to haul their gear back into Goggin Ice Arena. It was sunny, the temperature was around 50 degrees. The players were upbeat, on a four-game winning streak ahead of this weekend's series against Miami University. It was different the last time they walked through the same loading dock. Last February, they hauled gear in pouring rain after a fateful winless weekend that ultimately sealed their season's fate.
Jonny Tychonick wasn't worried. Sure, he saw Minnesota forward Brent Gates Jr. on a breakaway with a chance to give the Gophers the lead in the third period of the Las Vegas showdown. But he was familiar with this situation. He played with UND freshman goaltender Adam Scheel a year ago with the Penticton Vees in the British Columbia Hockey League and had taken plenty of shots at the netminder. "He gives you an option, then takes it away really quickly," Tychonick said. "He's quick, especially on penalty shots or shootouts. He's really good at reading fakes."
We're more than halfway through the nonconference portion of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference schedule. It's nearly 60 percent complete. And the NCHC, once again, appears set to establish itself as the league with the best nonconference record. After UND's two-game sweep of Wisconsin last weekend, the NCHC holds a 31-13-5 (.684) nonconference record. That's more than 100 points ahead of the Big Ten, which comes in second with a 22-16-3 (.573) nonconference record.
There was a two-minute break between regulation and overtime. So, UND coach Brad Berry didn’t need to change players on the five-on-three power play. They got their rest and he had the ability to stick with the same unit that started the two-man advantage. But the Fighting Hawk coaching staff did not. They put freshman Jacob Bernard-Docker on the ice -- and the rookie defenseman delivered.
UND 3, Wisconsin 2, OT The story: UND had a five-on-three power play for the final 1:23 of regulation and the first 21 seconds of overtime. It took almost the entire power play until rookie Jacob Bernard-Docker ripped a shot into the corner of the net to give UND the sweep and its fourth-straight win. Three stars: 1. Jacob Bernard-Docker, UND, game-winning goal; 2. Daniel Lebedeff, UW, 32 saves; 3. Nick Jones, UND, goal. Did you notice? UND is now 10-1-2 in its last 13 games against Wisconsin.
