North Dakota earned a 2-1 victory over UNO on Friday night in a tight and tense opener of an important Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.
Danny Kristo scored the game-winning goal just past the midway point of the second period and also assisted on the first goal as No. 7 North Dakota (15-8-6 overall, 10-5-6 WCHA) overcame an early 1-0 deficit and jumped into a second-place tie with the Mavericks.
