Shots: 10-9 Minnesota
Minnesota came out and dominated the first nine or so minutes of the game. Thatcher Demko made a couple great saves, including two back-to-back about five minutes into the game, and allowed his team to settle in.
The line of Vinni Lettieri-Connor Hurley-Anthony Louis has been the most effective so far for the under-18s. Louis rang the post on a nice pass from Lettieri earlier in the period at a time when the rest of the NTDP team wasn't really generating much.
Nic Kerdiles had a quiet first period, which is understandable since he's playing in his first game. His best shift was his last one, when he knocked down a tough pass off the boards with his glove and led a nice rush up the ice that ended up stalling because of a bad pass,
