Scoring Summary

Goal #1 (LSSU, 0-1): Max Humitz’s second goal of the weekend broke a scoreless deadlock 37 seconds into the second period. Brayden Gelsinger entered the zone from the right side off a pass from Humitz and skated the puck underneath the dots. He then found Humitz with a backhand pass to the slot, and the latter went hard to the crease and punched the puck in on his second attempt after initially being denied.

Game Notes

— Senior Craig Pantano made his first start of the season in net and was very strong, stopping 23-of-24 shots he faced (.958 SV%).

— Freshman Chase Gresock, who picked up his first career assist in Saturday’s season opener, was equally impressive on Sunday despite not recording a point. He led all players with six shots on goal and was buzzing all night, particularly in the final minutes of the game with the Warrior net empty.

— Senior Derek Petti won 10-of-19 faceoffs to account for the Warriors’ top performance on the dots.
