An exciting Friday night

Duluth wins in overtime, Mankato wins a shootout (not an actual shootout, but a figurative one), St. Cloud dominates Minnesota, UND is flattened by Maine and Nebraska-Omaha wins for just the second time ever at Yost Arena.

Performance of the night: Chase Grant -- Minnesota State
Grant scored the first and third goals of the night for the Mavericks, both in the second period, helping turn a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead and changing the tone of the game. The second goal was a power play marker and Grant's third goal of the season.

Non-performance of the night: Alex Kangas -- Minnesota
Yuck. Kangas allowed five goals on just 23 shots in just over 30 minutes of action in a 5-2 loss to St. Cloud State. The Gophers are now 0-3-0 in WCHA play and Kangas' below average play is one of the main reasons.

I am in Mankato tonight to work on a story on Rylan and Jaden Schwartz of Colorado College. Look for it on College Hockey News sometime in the coming days.
