SCSU 1, UND 0 — Kyler Kupka 9 (Josh Luedtke) 7:31. St. Cloud State swarms UND in the opening seven minutes of the game and finally gets rewarded as Luedtke cuts across the slot and leaves a feed backdoor for Kupka, who taps it in for his ninth of the season.

SCSU 1, UND 1 — Jackson Blake 15 7:39. UND answers St. Cloud State's first goal in just eight seconds as Husky defenseman Jack Peart fumbles a puck in the neutral zone, Blake picks it up, skates in on a breakaway and launches a wrist shot off the post and in. It's his third goal and fourth point of the weekend.

SCSU 2, UND 1 — Grant Ahcan 3 (Zach Okabe) 17:01. At the tail end of a shift, Blake and Owen McLaughlin go on a two-on-two rush. McLaughlin shoots far pad, but Husky goalie Dominic Basse makes the save. Okabe picks up the rebound, spots Ahcan behind the UND defense and sends him on a breakaway. UND goalie Ludvig Persson gets a piece of it, but not enough and the Huskies take the lead.

Hunter Johannes is out with a lower-body injury he sustained Friday night. Johannes did not play in the last 6:45 of the series opener. There's no immediate word on the extent of his injury. . . Jackson Kunz is moving up to Johannes' spot in the lineup. It appears the coaches are trying to keep Lines 2 and 3 in tact and move a similar big-bodied player to fill in for Johannes on the top line. . . Portz is playing for the first time since Nov. 18.
