Just as it had at the start of the game, UMD flew out of the blocks in the third period and regained the lead early on. Brown’s second goal of the night put the Bulldogs ahead for good at 2:45 of the period, with a helper from linemate Travis Oleksuk.
Brown and Oleksuk then combined again 28 seconds later to bring UMD’s lead back to two goals. Brown’s hat trick goal at 3:13 of the period brought the score to 4-2, with Brown taking an Oleksuk centering feed from the left circle before beating Faulkner low from in tight.
Mike Seidel and Joe Basaraba later clinched the two points for UMD. Seidel scored an empty-netter at 15:37 before Basaraba scored a weird goal that went in off of a UNO defenseman at 18:22.
UNO’s ‘Sell Out Duluth’ marketing campaign appears to have worked. An attendance figure of 16,138 was announced during Friday’s third period, although that was the number of tickets sold as opposed to the number of people that made it to the game…Friday’s game could have ended up 7-2 to UMD if Seidel had scored on his penalty shot. Faulkner was up to the task, though, poke checking the puck away from the shooter…Friday’s game was televised live on the NBC Sports Network, formerly known as Versus.
