Vermont took a 1-0 lead at 10:26 of the first period. Conor O'Neil's shot from the right wing careened around the boards to Trey Phillips at the left point. Phillips sent a pass across the high slot to Mitch Ferguson, whose low shot sailed inside the right post.

UVM extended the advantage to 2-0 on Chris Muscoby's power-play goal at 8:08 of the second stanza. Alexx Privitera initiated the scoring sequence with a pass from the slot to Mario Puskarich at the top of the right circle. Puskarich slipped the puck to the high slot, where Muscoby's screened slapshot eluded Danny Tirone (Trumbull, Conn.).

UNH pulled within one goal, 2-1, with a power-play goal of its own at 10:41. Andrew Poturalski (Williamsville, N.Y.) looped from the left circle to the slot, where he eluded a defender before wristing a shot into the cage. Matias Cleland (Longmont, Colo.) was credited with an assist.

The Wildcats were outshot 12-6 in the third period but scored the only goal in the stanza to level the score and send the game into overtime. The puck slipped off the stick of Jamie Hill (Glassboro, N.J.) on his wraparound attempt at the left post but Shane Eiserman (Newburyport, Mass.) was in position to jam the puck into the net. John Furgele (Glen Mills, Pa.) was credited with the secondary assist.


This marked the 1,000th game UNH head coach for Dick Umile. He is the fifth active coach and 12th coach in NCAA men's hockey history to reach that milestone. Now in his 25th year, Umile has compiled a record of 570-328-101 (.621 win percentage).

Poturalski extended his point streak to seven games. He has nine points (4-5-9) in that span.
