Leask came up the right board and passed ahead to freshman forward Mason Mitchell. Mitchell collected his third goal on the season, firing from inside the circle, blocker side.

The Seawolves held on tight to their lead until sophomore Austin Azurdia was tagged for a five-minute for interference, leading to the Nittany Lions power-play strike at 6:31. Luke Juha captured his second on the year with assists going to David Goodwin and David Glen.

PSU went 1-for-3 on the power play, while UAA was kept scoreless on four attempts. UAA placed 21 shots on target to PSU's 37.
