About Last Night Senior Austin Poganski (St. Cloud, Minn.) scored his first two power-play goals of the season and classmate Cam Johnson (Detroit, Mich.) returned from injury to earn his 50th career win as North Dakota edged Western Michigan 4-3.
Poganski’s two goals and a single tally by Ludvig Hoff (So., Oslo, Norway) staked UND to a 3-2 first-period lead, and freshman Collin Adams (Brighton, Mich.) notched the eventual game-winner midway through the second period.
Johnson made 18 saves in his return from an 8-game injury absence.
Both teams went 2-7 on the power play in a game that featured 16 minor penalties.
