Just 39 seconds into the first period sophomore forward Riley Tufte got the Bulldogs on the board. Nick Wolff then followed up with another Bulldog goal at the 8:32 mark in the first period. However, UMD opened up scoring opportunities as Michigan Tech netted 2 power play goals to even things before the period was over.

The Huskies added another goal on a power play to go up 3-2 in the second period. Freshman defenseman Scott Perunovich responded with the equalizer, also notching his first goal of the season to tie things up 3-3. Michigan Tech's only goal not on a power play came at 10:14 in the second period. That was the final goal and difference maker.

Sophomore goaltender Nick Deery earned the loss. Deery tallied 33 saves.

UMD next week travels to Bemidji for a Home and Home series, returning to Amsoil Arena on Saturday.
