The Blugolds would outshoot Stout by one in the middle period, but neither side lit up the lamp. In the third, the Blugolds got back into it with an evensided goal at 5:26. Andrew Johnson (Jr.-Andover, MN/Anoka) put it in and John Kearns (Fr.-Park Ridge, IL) assisted. Less than a minute later, however, the Blue Devils made it two goals again on an advantage strike. Then, shortly after at 7:55, Stout struck again for the final goal of the night on another power-play.
