UND 1, Colorado College 0 -- Riese Gaber (Matt Kiersted, Shane Pinto) 14:26 (pp). UND gets its first power-play chance of the game late in the second period and it takes all of eight seconds for UND to score. Pinto wins the draw back to Kiersted, who gives it to Gaber in the right circle. Gaber walks around a Tiger defender and snaps a shot that Tiger goalie Dominic Basse stops. Gaber crashes the net and buries the rebound.
UND 1, Colorado College 1 -- Ben Copeland (Jackson Jutting, Chase Foley) 19:01 (pp). The Fighting Hawks continue playing with fire, taking their third penalty of the period and this one comes back to bite them. The Tigers break UND's 23-straight penalty kill run when Copeland fires a shot from the left circle five-hole on UND goalie Adam Scheel, whose shutout streak ends at 132:15.
UND 2, Colorado College 1 -- Grant Mismash (Collin Adams, Brendan Budy) 1:41. UND's most dangerous duo of the night gets on the board early in the third. Adams and Tiger defenseman Bryan Yoon go for a puck at the point. Adams wins it and starts a two-on-one with Mismash. Adams has it on the left side, he threads a pass to Mismash, who wires it past Basse for his sixth of the season and second of the series.
