RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — University of North Dakota Vs. University Of Minnesota-Duluth, December 11, 2015

The University of North Dakota’s men’s hockey team hasn’t been outshot many times this season,  but that’s where the Fighting Hawks found themselves Friday night in a National Collegiate Hockey Conference game against the University of Minnesota-Duluth. But that didn’t matter. UND goalie Cam Johnson stopped all 40 shots he faced as the Fighting Hawks shut out the Bulldogs 3-0 before a sold-out crowd of 6,836 in AmsOil Arena in Duluth. The shutout was Johnson’s second in a row and his fifth straight win since returning from an early-season groin injury. Johnson also became UND’s first goalie with back-to-back shutouts since Aaron Dell five years ago. UMD goalie Kasimir Kaskisuo had 19 saves. Brock Boeser — his 12th — Joel Janatuinen (No. 2) and Shane Gersich (No. 5) scored for the Fighting Hawks, who are now 15-2-2 overall and 8-1-0 in the NCHC. Duluth fell to 4-4-1 in the NCHC and 7-6-3 overall. UND holds a three-point lead over second-place St. Cloud State in the NCHC standings. The two teams meet again tonight.
