BOSTON (AP) — Matt Frattin’s goal at 7:33 of the third period was the game-winner as North Dakota came from behind to beat Harvard 4-3 Saturday for a sweep of their two-game series.
It was the first sweep of the season for the Fighting Sioux (7-8-1), who won a penalty-marred first game 10-1.
The physical play carried over to Saturday and UND lost Chris VandeVelde in the first period to a checking from behind major and game misconduct. Five of the seven goals were on power plays.
Harvard’s Alex Killorn opened the scoring on the power play to give the Crimson a 1-0 lead at 2:07 of the first period. But the Fighting Sioux responded with two power-play goals, one by Ryan Duncan at 6:59 and another by Chay Genoway at 7:53.
Harvard went ahead 3-2 on a second-period goal by Michael Del Mauro and a goal by Daniel Moriarty just 8 seconds into the third period.
The Sioux got the equalizer when David Toews redirected a pass from Ryan Martens for a power-play goal at 6:03 of the third. Frattin netted the winner a minute and a half later.
Brad Eidsness had 33 saves for UND, while Harvard’s Matt Hoyle had 22 stops.
