Josh Monk ripped a one-timer into the upper-right corner with 0.9 seconds left to send the Friars into the first intermission with a 1-0 lead.

- It remained a one-goal game until the last three minutes of the game, when Ryan Tait netted goals at 17:18 and 19:39.

- Junior netminder Danny Tirone (Trumbull, Conn.) made 27 saves for UNH in the game, including 11 in the first period and in the second period.
