A heartbreaker for the Mavs, who tied the game with 18 seconds left in regulation on a goal by Jerad Stewart but fell in extra time when Mike Connolly intercepted a pass a neutral ice and went in on a breakaway.
Minnesota State dominated the third period despite losing Zach Harrison and Kael Mouillierat to misconducts (after the game Mouillierat's penalty was changed to a DQ). Duluth scored goals on each major penalty and led 3-1 late in the second period.
Michael Dorr's 5x3 power-play late in the second made it 3-2, and the Mavericks outshot the Bulldogs 12-4 in the final frame. Stewart's goal came with Austin Lee (26 saves) out for an extra attacker. Kurt Davis made a game-saving play at the blue line to keep the play alive.
Crazy, crazy game.
