Minnesota/NTDP U18 Third Period/Overtime Notes

Third Period Scoring

No scoring in the third period. Shot totals after three periods were 36-25 Minnesota

Nick Bjugstad had the best chance of the period when he stripped the puck from an NTDP blueliner while shorthanded and came in alone on Thatcher Demko. Bjugstad made a nice deke and went to his left, but Demko used his big frame to get his pad down and make the save. Tyler Motte also had a breakaway early in the period, but failed to beat Shibrowski five hole.

The NTDP had a couple chances on the power play, including a Nic Kerdiles shot from the slot that bounces off a couple bodies before making its way to Shibrowski.

Minnesota's defense looks like it's going to continue to live on the razor's edge all season. With three minutes left in a tie game, they had four skaters down below the top of the circles in the attacking zone, and lost the puck, leading to what was almost an odd-man rush for the NTDP in the other direction. There's a fine line between being dangerous and reckless.

Casey Parenteau left midway through the period with a right leg injury and never returned to the bench. He was putting no weight on that leg as he left the ice.

Overtime

No scoring

Clint Lewis had a lane to shot from at the point, and got a nice tip in front that Shibrowski stopped.

Minnesota almost scored on a puck off the back boards that kicked in front of the goal, but Demko was able to recover and smother the puck.
