GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Two goals in less than two minutes of the third period helped St. Cloud State rally to a 3-2 win over North Dakota In a National Collegiate Hockey Conference game on Friday.

The ninth-ranked Huskies (1-0-0, 4-0-1) trailed 1-0 entering the third period before rallying against fifth-ranked North Dakota.

The Huskies are off to their best start since going 8-0-1 in the 2003-04 season.

While North Dakota's penalty kill continued to shine, it's power play was punchless, going 0-for-3.

The Huskies netted three even-strength goals in the third period.

Kevin Gravel and Kalle Kossila scored just 1:58 apart early in the third period. Andrew Prochno added a goal at 12:36.

Prochno's goal proved to be the game-winner as UND's Mark MacMillan closed the gap to one with 15:39 left.
