- The Friars took a 1-0 lead at the 9:27 mark of the second period as Brian Pinho lit the lamp for the seventh time this season. Jake Walman played a pass to Josh Monk to dished the puck to Pinho. He fired a shot that made its way past Tirone.

- Kelleher notched the equalizer at 18:16 of the second period while the Wildcats were on a power play to bring the score to 1-1. Senior captain Matias Cleland (Longmont, Colo.) played a pass over to junior Michael McNicholas (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) at the right point and his diagonal pass found Kelleher low on the left side for the goal.

- Brandon Duhaime put PC back in front, 2-1, at 4:50 of the third period.

- Bryan Lemos extended the advantage to 3-1 at 13:44. Josh Monk initiated the scoring sequence when his pass from the right point ricocheted off Josh Wilkins' stick in the slot to Lemos, who scored from close range on the left side.

- UNH's Matt Dawson (Delta, British Columbia) ripped a rising slap shot from the high slot through traffic into the net with just over a minute remaining in regulation, but the goal was reviewed and disallowed because of interference with the goalie in the crease.

- The Wildcats pulled Tirone and once again shot the puck into the net and this time the goal trimmed the deficit to 3-2 with 40 seconds to play. Jason Salvaggio (Hanson, Mass.) moved the puck from the right corner along the end boards to Kelleher behind the net. Kelleher slipped a pass to Grasso in front and he scored on a one-timer.
