The Eagles (2-0-0) took over in the second period, scoring three goals in four minutes to take a 5-2 lead.

"It was a good hockey game to that point and we stubbed our on toe," North Dakota coach Dave Hakstol said. "We let one mistake turn into another one and that absolutely changed the hockey game."
