The Saints got on the board at the 3:01 mark of the first period with a power play goal by Jacob Pritchard. The play was set up by Drew Smolcynski as he sent a pass behind the net over to Joe Sullivan. He slid a pass to Pritchard who from one knee shot a one-timer that went off the post and into the net.

SLU took a 2-0 lead at 11:50 of the first period with a goal by Ben Finkelstein. Ryan Lough won the faceoff to Finkelstein who garnered the pass along the boards. He threw a shot at the UNH net that went through traffic and past netminder Adam Clark (Sherwood Park, Alberta).

At 7:47 of the second period, the Saints took a 3-0 lead on a goal by Woody Hudson. Ryan Lough and Ryan Garvey each tallied assists on the play.

Freshman Patrick Grasso (Ankeny, Iowa), notched his first-career goal to cut the deficit to two goals while on a power play. Sophomore forward Ara Nazarian (Boxford, Mass.) cued up the play with a pass from the corner of the boards to Matias Cleland (Longmont, Colo.) at the point. Cleland fed the puck to Grasso who was to the right of Saints' netminder Kyle Hayton and ripped a shot into the net.

St. Lawrence tallied two more goals in the second period to bring the score to 5-1 through two. Gavin Bayreuther scored at 14:37 with assists from Michael Laidley and Carson Gicewicz.
