Lawrence (1-2-0, 1-2-0 MCHA) got a pair of goals from both senior Brad Scurfield and freshman Rudi Pino. Peter Emery made 15 saves to pick up the win.
The game was tied 1-1 early in the second period when Phil Bushbacher scored on the power play to give Lawrence a 2-1 edge at the 5:38 mark.
Pino then got his first collegiate goal at the 10:04 mark, and the Vikings racked up three more goals in the next 5:34. Scurfield and Gustav Lindgren scored, and freshman Matt Moore capped the outburst with his first collegiate goal, a short-hander, at the 15:39 mark for a 6-1 lead.
