NCAA Game Night: 3-21-13

WCHA Final 5 Quarterfinal

F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 27 GP, 2-8-10, E, 18 PIM

Brendan O’Donnell had an assist on UND’s first goal, but he and his teammates won’t be advancing in the WCHA Final 5 after their overtime loss on Thursday. O’Donnell’s assist came when he won a battle in the right wing corner, using his skate to knock a puck to Habs prospect Danny Kristo, who swung around the net and roofed a wrist shot into the net. North Dakota later battled back to force overtime, but a CC shot banked off a UND defenseman and into the net in overtime to send the Tigers on to face the top-seeded Minnesota Golden Gophers and Lightning prospect Adam Wilcox in the semifinals on Friday. North Dakota will now wait for an at-large bid to the national tournament, to be announced on Sunday.
