LSSU goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson recorded 30 saves in the game while the Lakers put 30 shots on the NMU net, neither team was able to score on the power play despite each having 4 opportunities in the game.

In the shootout LSSU struggled again with MacVoy scoring the Lakers only goal, while Steven Kaunisto and Rick Schofield both where stopped. NMU was 2-for-3 on their chances to record the win.
