Andrew Creppin had a goal and an assist for UAH. Teammate Tom Durnie scored to send the game into the third period tied 3-3.

The Bulldogs outshot UAH 47-17. Chargers goalie Clarke Saunders kept the game close with 43 saves. UMD had a 99-35 shots-on-goal advantage in the two games.

Aaron Crandall made 14 saves as UMD extended its home winning streak to eight games.
