No. 6 North Dakota 4, No. 1 Miami (Ohio) 2
OXFORD, Ohio -- North Dakota got goals from four different juniors and sophomore goalie Zane Gothberg made 36 saves as UND defeated Miami (Ohio) 4-2 in the first National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) game.
Each member of the forward line of Michael Parks, Mark MacMillan and Brendan O'Donnell found the net to build a 3-0 lead for UND. Miami rallied with a pair of second-period goals, but UND junior defenseman Nick Mattson sealed the win with a power-play goal in the third period.
Gothberg was strong between the pipes, his 36 saves just one short of his career high.

No. 7 Boston College 9, No. 2 Wisconsin 2
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- Boston College honored its legendary coach in electric fashion, exploding for a 9-2 victory against Wisconsin on Jerry York Night at Kelley Rink on Friday evening. The Eagles’ coach, in his 20th season at The Heights, was honored in a pregame ceremony for breaking the NCAA all-time mark for coaching victories. After Friday’s triumph, York has won 937 games in 42 years of collegiate hockey coaching.
Fifteen different skaters scored a point, including junior Johnny Gaudreau’s second consecutive three-point performance (1-2-3) to crack the 100-point plateau for his career, to help thrust the Eagles past a highly touted Badgers club. He scored his 44th career goal and 57th and 58th assists in 82 games to become the 74th Eagle in program history to reach that benchmark.
Rookie Austin Cangelosi registered his first two career goals and added an assist while classmate Adam Gilmour turned in a playmaker with three helpers on the night. Seniors Kevin Hayes and Patrick Brown joined freshmen Ian McCoshen and Ryan Fitzgerald as one of seven BC multi-point getters.
Junior goaltender Brian Billett earned his first win of the season via 14 saves through two-and-a-half periods before classmate Brad Barone cleaned up the remaining 9:05 with five stops. Wisconsin’s Landon Peterson took the loss after stopping 16 shots on 22 attempts before Adam Miller coughed up three tallies on 27 shots.
The Eagles netted four goals within a span of 4:39 to set the precedent midway through the first stanza.
No. 3 Minnesota 6, Bemidji State 3
BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Six different Golden Gophers scored as Minnesota picked up a 6-3 victory at Bemidji State on Friday night.

Bemidji State took a 1-0 lead behind a power-play goal from Danny Mattson, but about a minute later, Boyd scored to tie the game. The Gophers would take a 2-1 lead into the break thanks to a goal from Marshall on a power play.
Ten minutes after Cory Ward tied the game in the second period, Warning scored the game-winning goal.
The Gophers got three more goals in the third period, starting with Fasching's even-strength goal less than a minute into the period. Radoslav Illo added a goal for Bemidji but both Condon and Reilly responded with goals of their own.

Steven Fogarty got Notre Dame on the board first, scoring a goal 5:48 into the first period. Robbie Russo added a goal onto the lead about 12 minutes later while the Fighting Irish were on the power play.
In the second, goals by CJ Eick and Ryan Furne tied the game at two. But Tyna's third-period goal on an assist from Mario Lucia would be the game winner.
Steven Summerhays stopped 22 of the 24 shots he faced in the win.

Michigan finished the night 8-for-8 on the penalty kill, including three UNH power plays in the third period.
At 1:41 of the third period, Racine (19 saves) exited the game due to injury, making way for Nagelvoort's debut in net. Nagelvoort, a freshman, was tested immediately, stopping a Trevor van Riemsdyk drive from the point on UNH's first power-play opportunity of the third period at the 5:26 mark.
UNH outshot Michigan, 2-1, in the scoreless extra frame.
The Wolverines struck first for the third consecutive time this season, converting on an extended power-play opportunity in period one after UNH's Dalton Speelman was called for a major contact to the head penalty at 13:11.
During the man-advantage, freshman JT Compher fired a hard pass to Motte, who redirect a shot past Wyer at 15:32 to put Michigan up 1-0. Andrew Copp was also credited with an assist on the play.
While UNH was unable to capitalize on its early power-play chances, the Wildcats tied the game shortly after their sixth-man advantage of the night expired. Nick Sorkin batted a rebound chance out of the air past Racine at 1:49 of the middle period to tie the game at 1-1, just as DeBlois exited the penalty box.
No. 14 Quinnipiac 3, No. 9 Massachusetts-Lowell 1
LOWELL, Mass. -- Quinnipiac defeated Massachusetts-Lowell 3-1 in a non-conference match-up at Tsongas Arena. With the win, Quinnipiac improves to 2-1-0 on the season while UMass-Lowell drops to 1-2-0 on the year.

Two minutes into the second period, Quinnipiac got on the board when Samuels-Thomas scored his first goal of the season on the power play. Peter Quenneville saw Samuels-Thomas skating through the opposite face-off circle and zipped a pass through the River Hawks' zone to Samuels-Thomas' tape.
Samuels-Thomas picked up his second point of the night midway through the second period. Samuels-Thomas took control of the puck in the corner to the left of the UMass Lowell net. He skated up the boards and pushed the puck up to Connor Clifton at the point. Clifton fired a shot from just below the blue line, and with Connor Jones screening Hawks goalie Connor Hellebuyck, Clifton's shot found the back of the net to give Quinnipiac a 2-0 lead.
Quinnipiac jumped out to a 3-0 lead when Derek Smith took a blast from the point that found its way through traffic in front of the River Hawks net. The puck glanced off a player in front of Hellebuyck and clanged in off the cross bar to give the Bobcats a three-goal lead. Samuels-Thomas was credited with his second assist, and third point, of the night while Connor Jones was also credited with an assist.
Less than two minutes into the third period, UMass Lowell's Adam Chapie scored off a rebound with assists going to Jake Suter and Joe Gambardella.
