Minnesota 2 - Bemidji 2 After Two

The Gophers looked much better after a lackluster first and Nick Bjugstad scored the only goal of the period halfway through the period on a fifteen second 5×3. It was fitting for Bjugstad given he started off the period by winning the faceoff and creating his own opportunity seconds into the period. His goal, which came four seconds after Ian Lowe hit Erik Haula with a high stick, was the product of a cross-ice pass by Jay Barriball.

Bemidji had their share of chances outshooting the Gophers (whatever) but Kent Patterson stood tall. The Beavers also continued to be more aggressive and physical throughout the period which ended in Aaron Ness and Taylor Matson both leaving the game at times with injuries. Both teams are still in the game and have a chance to win. It should be an interesting third period.
