SCSU 1, UND 0 -- Spencer Meier (Chase Brand, Jami Krannila) 6:46 (pp). St. Cloud State gets its second major power play of the weekend and becomes the first team to score on UND with a major power play this season. Brand has the puck along the goal line and spots an open Meier in the left circle. Meier catches the pass and beats Thome high glove.
SCSU 1, UND 1 -- Collin Adams (Ethan Frisch) . Adams enters the zone on a two-on-two rush with new linemate Harrison Blaisdell, who drives the net. Adams pulls up in the zone and wrists a shot through Husky defender Nick Perbix and Blaisdell's traffic and over goalie David Hrenak.
SCSU 2, UND 1 -- Jack Poehling (Nick Poehling, Nick Perbix) 5:54. After UND dominates the opening five minutes of the period, St. Cloud State comes down on a three-on-two rush and takes the lead on a Jack Poehling slap shot from the top of the left circle that beats Thome high glove side.
UND's leading scorer and Hobey Baker Award candidate Jordan Kawaguchi is out with an undisclosed injury. I'm told the injury is not a serious or longterm one. UND continues to be cautious with its injured players, just as it was with Colton Poolman and Matt Kiersted. Kawaguchi is expected to be in the lineup next weekend against Western Michigan. Fourth-line center Jasper Weatherby is moving up to the top line to fill Kawaguchi's spot. The fourth line has some slight shifting with Dixon Bowen moving to center, Zach Yon skating a regular shift and Jackson Keane coming in for Casey Johnson. Jonny Tychonick is in as the extra defenseman. Gavin Hain will miss his fourth-straight game with a lower-body injury. Peter Thome will start his seventh-straight game in net. St. Cloud State only has one change -- Zach Okabe is in on the fourth line right wing for Kyler Kupka. St. Cloud State great Matt Cullen is expected to attend the game. UND is wearing black jerseys. The Fighting Hawks enter the game 6-0 in the black sweaters.
