UND’s Top Players Take Over

In the third period of last night’s game, the action was fast and furious. At the 4:04 mark of the third period, Hawks defenseman Christian Wolanin gave the hometown team a brief lead, 4-3 UND.  The Hawks lead would evaporate four minutes and 25 minutes later with a goal from Fredrik Olofsson. Tie game, once again.

After watching their favorite teams lose games at home, the Fighting Hawks gave the fans some to cheer about.  UND’s top players took over the game. It was like they found another gear. At the 14:11 mark of the third period, Jost would score his second goal of the game to give UND a 5-4 lead. Before the crowd could sit down, Boeser scored his second goal of the game to give UND a 6-4 lead.

Earlier in the night, I tweeted, “At some point, UND’s top players like Gersich, Boeser, and Jost could break out. No time like the present”

 

On Friday night, the Hawks got a must-needed boost from their top players. The top line had an impressive showing, Jost scored two goals and three points. Boeser broke a nine-game goalless streak scoring two goals and two points. After going six games without scoring a point, Boeser has now scored six points in the last four games.
