3:09 Josh Nelson from Teddy Blueger and Johnny McInnis (power play) 5-0 Minnesota State
Blueger picked up his third assist of the night by finding Nelson in the high slot, and Nelson fired a one-timer to beat Dugas.
7:23 Eriah Hayes from Jean-Paul LaFontaine and Brett Knowles 6-0 Minnesota State
Just as the major penalty was expiring, Hayes got a pass right in front of the net from LaFontaine and one-timed it for the goal.
13:07 Jordan George from Matt Prapavessis and Brad Robbins (power play) 6-1 Minnesota State
George fired a low angle shot and it looked like Williams had it trapped underneath him, but it slid into the net. The goal came right as the first of two major penalties called against Minnesota State expired.
There were three major penalties called in this period. The first was against BSU's Brady Wacker. Wacker stepped up into an on-rushing defender, and laid what would have been considered a great check five years ago. It was a really tough call to go against BSU. Minnesota State's Jon Jutzi was called for a check from behind later in the period. Normally, I'd say that was a questionable major, but given that two had been called on BSU, it was a call the officials had to make. I didn't see the final one called against Zach Lehrke.
Penalties had a big effect on the play in this period. Minnesota State controlled the first part of the period during their two major power plays. Bemidji State controlled the latter half with their two major power plays.
