The Wildcats struck first at 5:06 of the first period as freshman forward Patrick Grasso (Ankeny, Iowa) notched his 11th goal of the season. Senior captain Matias Cleland (Longmont, Colo.) dished a pass to freshman Brendan van Riemsdyk (Middletown, N.J.). He found Grasso inside the faceoff circle to the left of Big Red netminder Mitch Gillam. Grasso fired a shot from his knees that squeaked past Gillam and into the net.

The Big Red tied the score at 11:59 of the first stanza with a goal by Trevor Yates. Patrick McCarron tallied the assist on the play as he fired a shot in on net that was initially saved by UNH netminder Danny Tirone (Trumbull, Conn.), but Yates got the rebound and put it away.

CU gained a 2-1 lead with 3:13 left in the second period on a deflection goal by Noah Bauld. Dan Wedman swung the puck along the point from left to right to Matt Nuttle. He then fired the puck on net that took a deflection off the stick of Bauld and into the net.
