On the second night of the matchup between the No. 1 Denver Pioneers and the No. 3 North Dakota Fighting Hawks it was a different type of hockey game than the previous night. The Fighting Hawks had a desire to play physical which led to too many penalties and the Pioneers got to put their skill on full display. It was a 1-1 hockey game heading into the third period but the Pioneers came out like a team on a mission, scoring three goals in the third period to win 4-1.
