Third Period Notes: Denver Wins 4-3

Scoring:

13:54 Dan Doremus from Shawn Ostrow and Nolan Zajac 4-2 Denver

Ostrow fed the puck from the corner out to Doremus in the high slot. Doremus fired a quick wrist shot over the left shoulder of Williams.

18:09 Jean-Paul LaFontaine from Matt Leitner and Zach Lehrke 4-3 Denver

Leitner fed LaFontaine with a nice feed from behind the net, and LaFontaine one-timed it into the net before Brittain had a chance to react.

Notes:

Minnesota State had an early power play in the third period, and had two or three Grade A opportunities to tie the game but weren't able to capitalize.

Minnesota State also brought more of a physical edge to the third period than they did in the first half of the game, and Denver seemed to struggle with it. The biggest hit was a crushing open ice hit by Max Gaede on Denver's Jarrod Mermis.

Minnesota State controlled play for a large chunk of the third period, but it was Denver that scored the games sixth goal. Another example of Denver making a nice skill play, while Minnesota State couldn't get a puck to bounce into the net off a scramble in front.

Down two goals, Minnesota State pulled Williams with 4:00 remaining in the game. Pulling the goalie earlier and earlier also seems to be a growing trend.

Jean-Paul LaFontaine took a checking from behind major with with 1:26 left in the game. I didn't see the hit in question, but I can say it was a very small player knocking over a very big player.
