HOW IT HAPPENED
= Adrian sophomore Bryan Yim stuffed home a rebound on the edge of the crease to make the score 3-1 with his 13th goal of the season at the 6:45 mark into the second period.

= The Bulldogs outshot the Saints by a 42-27 margin, including 17-9 in the first period.
= The teams traded goals in the third period. Phee scored just 37 seconds in on the power play to close within 3-2 and freshman Vincent Paquette countered almost 2 minutes later to restore the Bulldogs' two-goal lead.
= Adrian and CSS combined for 5-for-18 on the power play with the Bulldogs 4-of-8 and Saints 1-for-10.
= On two occasions, Adrian's penalty-kill successfully defended against a 5-on-3 for about a minute each time with the game close.
= Dunn put Adrian on the board at 12:48 in the first period when he skated coast-to-coast and snapped a shot between the circles.
= Star evened the score 1-1 only 29 seconds later when he intercepted a pass at center ice and outraced two defenders to beat Entmaa between the leg pads.
= The Bulldogs, however, regained the lead for good before the opening stanza ended. Team captain Thompson scored with 1:42 left on nice passing while on the power play.
BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
