MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Ice Bears sure didn’t play like the 23rd-ranked team in the nation, but they couldn’t derail the defending national champs, either. Visiting Missouri State gave the No. 1-ranked Minot State Beavers a battle, but a pair of third-period goals helped Minot State skate away with a 5-3 victory Thursday night at the Maysa Arena. Minot State (7-0-0 overall) is back in action again Friday night hosting Waldorf (Iowa) in the first of two games with puck-drop at 7:30 p.m. The game is “Food Drive Friday” night and anyone donating 3 nonperishable food items at the door gets in free.
Thursday against the Ice Bears (4-2-1), Minot State started off strong as Brayden Pawluk scored a power-play goal with 9 minutes, 32 seconds gone in the first to open the scoring, then Trenton Curtis netted his first of the night with 57 seconds left in the opening stanza for a 2-0 Beaver lead. But the visitors made it interesting, scoring a pair of early second-period goals just a minute apart to draw even. Minot State captain Carter Barley broke the tie with the Beavers’ second power-play goal of the night with 11:49 gone in the second, but Missouri State evened the score once again, tying it 3-3 with 3:30 left in the second on a power-play goal of their own. Locked in a tight battle through the first 40 minutes, Minot State took control in the third as Curtis scored what proved to be the game-winner 7:28 into the final period, then Colby Joseph added an insurance goal with 7:16 left to help ice the win. Jake Anthony finished with 27 saves as he earned his fifth victory in goal on the season for the Beavers.

Joel Eriksson Ek assisted on Faber’s goal and scored on a 4 on 3 in the second period, and Gustavsson took it from there to pick up where he left off in goal in his strong debut last season with the Wild. The Wild are 9-1-1 in season openers at Xcel Energy Center and 11-2-3 at home against the Panthers. Faber, the native of Minnesota who starred in college for the home-state Gophers and joined the Wild for the final two games of the regular season, skated on the first defensemen pair with Jonas Brodin. He a snagged a drop pass from Matt Boldy at the blue line, waited a second to find a seam and ripped a slap shot past Panthers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky’s stick. The Wild play at Toronto on Saturday. Fourteen of their first 17 games are against Eastern Conference foes.
