Skating with an extra attacker and on the power play, the Badgers got the tying goal from Schultz at 19:20. It was his second goal of the game and the second power-play goal by Wisconsin in the final five minutes of regulation.

Matt Paape's goal with a man-advantage at 15:41 pulled Wisconsin within 3-2.

Gabe Guentzel had two goals on the power play in the second period for the Tigers. Jaden Schwartz scored the winning goal with a man-advantage at 13:33 of the third period.

The Mavericks had the game's only even-strength goal by Andrej Sustr. Ryan Walters scored shorthanded for UNO, which had a 47-27 advantage in shots on goal.
