McGraw, who is committed to play hockey at West Point Army Academy, tied the game up at 2-2, 17 and a half minutes in, before New Hampshire took back the lead again with less than a minute remaining in the first to make it 3-2.


New Hampshire scored the lone goal in the second period to make it 4-2 six and a half minutes in, before defenseman Matthew DeSpirit fired in his fifth of the season to make it 4-3 only 43 seconds into the final frame. The home sided Mountain Kings responded again with two, this time eight and nine minutes in, to make it 6-3, before forward Jacob Wilson scored his 15th of the season 17 and a half minutes in to make it 6-4, which stood until the final buzzer in the defeat.
