Kristo's production, which included three goals and two assists, helped North Dakota take three of four WCHA points from the Bulldogs. The Eden Prairie, Minn., native scored a pair of goals in Friday's 4-4 overtime tie, then added a goal and two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win. He set up linemate Mark MacMillan (So., Penticton, British Columbia) for the game-tying goal in the third period and the game-winner with 34 seconds remaining in overtime.
Kristo produced nine shots on goal in the series, including a game-high seven in Friday's tie, and was a +2. He was named the game's No. 1 star on Friday and the No. 2 star on Saturday.
Kristo has reached the scoresheet in all but one of his eight games this season, and leads UND with 12 points (four goals, eight assists).
