On their fourth power play of the game, Adam Fantilli scored to tie the score for the Wolverines at 12:08 in the third period.Neither side was able to score for the remainder of the quarter; therefore, the game went into overtime for the first time this tournament.

On April 6 at 8:30 p.m. EDT, that game will be played. Should Michigan prevail, they will play either the Minnesota Vikings or the Boston Celtics on April 8.
