Denver, North Dakota advance to WCHA semifinals
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Brock Nelson scored twice as North Dakota beat St. Cloud State 4-1 in the quarterfinals of the WCHA Final Five.
Nelson got off a wrist shot from 15 feet out that fooled Huskies goalie Mike Lee, breaking a 1-1 tie in the second period and added an empty-net goal as the Fighting Sioux got one step closer to a three-peat in the WCHA's postseason tournament. Corban Knight got North Dakota's first goal, and Danny Kristo had another empty-netter.
