Gothberg leads North Dakota over Bemidji St 4-2
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - One night after its nation-best winning streak ended, North Dakota beat Bemidji State 4-2 Saturday in men’s college hockey to extend its unbeaten streak to nine games.
UND goalie Zane Gothberg extended his personal unbeaten streak to nine games. He was in net in Friday’s 1-1 tie.
Connor Gaarder and Andrew Panzarella scored 55 seconds apart early in the first period to stake UND (12-7-3) to the early lead. Derek Rodwell and Derek Parks extended the lead to 4-2 in the second period and the teams skated to a scoreless tie in the third.
UND picked up where it left off Friday, piling up a 15-4 shots-on-goal advantage in the first period. It finished with a 33-17 advantage. UND’s first two goals were similar in that Gaarder and Panzarella deflected centering passes past Bemidji State goalie Andrew Walsh.
UND coach Dave Hakstol said it was just what the team needed.
Walsh was the key to Friday’s tie, stopping 42 shots. He had 29 saves on Saturday.
“After a great night for their goaltender last night, we knew we had to go to the net and get a couple of greasy ones,” Hakstol said. “We had some good fortune.”
UND’s cushion disappeared at 12:37 of the second period when Ward scored his second goal of the series on a blistering wrist shot following a turnover.
“We started off slow in the first period,” Ward said. “We knew getting out of the first period would be good.”
But it wasn’t good for long and the Beavers lost ground in the second period.
Rodwell made it 3-1 just 1:13 into the period when he skated hard to the net to Walsh’s right and slid the puck in. Parks scored on a wraparound at 6:58 before Gerbrandt scored for Bemidji State to make it 4-2.
The third period was scoreless.
