Colorado College outlasts SCSU
12/14/2009 - 2:05 AM
It was one of the more entertaining games in recent memory on Friday night at the National Hockey Center between Colorado College and Saint Cloud State but it was a letdown on Saturday that will ultimately leave a bad taste in the mouths of the Huskies.
Saint Cloud rallied down 3-0 on Friday night and scored a shorthanded goal by Brian Volpei late in the 3rd period to draw a 4-4 tie with the Tigers. Saint Cloud was down 4-2 in the 3rd until a goal by Garrett Roe drew the Huskies within one. Brian Volpei then ignited the crowd when he came out of the box and stripped a C.C. player with the puck and scored on a breakaway goal.
The Huskies killed off a 5 on 3 power play and a 5 minute major penalty in the 3rd to keep things status quo and eventually drawing the tie.
The emotions unfortunately didn't carry over for the Huskies on Saturday as SCSU was scored on early and often. C.C. scored within the 1st minute of the 1st period and went on to beat the Huskies 4-1.
Saint Cloud still sits at 19th in the nation after the weekend and is off until January 2nd and 3rd when they continue their home stand against Brown University. Both games start at 6:07 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday night and KVSC is providing all of the coverage from this non-conference matchup.
