CC Tigers swept by St. Cloud State after 5-1 loss

Posted: Updated:

Second-ranked St. Cloud State scored four times in the third period, including a pair just 33 seconds apart early in the frame, and completed a sweep of Colorado College with a 5-1 victory Saturday night at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.

The Huskies (9-2-0, 4-2-0 NCHC) took a 1-0 lead into the third period and killed off 39 seconds of a Tiger power play to open the frame. After a tripping call to CC’s Kade Kehoe, Easton Brodzinski gave SCSU a 2-0 lead at the 2:45 mark with its second power-play goal of the game.

Luke Jaycox put the Huskies ahead 3-0 just 33 seconds later with a one-timer from the point that eluded Tiger goalie Alex Leclerc for his first collegiate goal.

Following a scrum in front of the Husky net that resulted in a 5-minute major facemasking call and game misconduct for Kehoe and a pair of roughing calls on St. Cloud State, Mason Bergh cut the lead to 3-1 with a power-play goal at the 6:20 mark. He took a pass from Nick Halloran and fired a wrister over SCSU goalie Jeff Smith’s right shoulder for his team-high ninth goal of the season.

However, SCSU scored its third power-play goal of the night and extended the Husky lead back to three when Patrick Newell poked the puck past Leclerc at the 8:02 mark following a scramble right in front of the net. Judd Peterson closed the scoring with a shorthanded, empty-net goal with 3:41 remaining after CC coach Mike Haviland pulled Leclerc for an extra attacker during a power play.

“We played really well for the first 40 minutes tonight,” Haviland said. “Then we took a couple of undisciplined penalties and they made us pay.”

Jacob Benson opened the scoring with a power-play goal midway through the first period. Benson took a cross-ice pass from Mikey Eyssimont and fired a shot from the left circle into an open net.

Neither team scored in the second period, but each goalie came up with some spectacular saves. Leclerc made 15 in the frame, including a couple with a teammate’s stick, and Smith stoned Westin Michaud from the slot and Trevor Gooch on the rebound midway through the frame.

Colorado College (7-7-0, 3-5-0 NCHC), which lost for the first time on Saturday away from home this season, was 1-for-5 on the power play, while the Huskies were 3-for-7. SCSU outshot CC for the second straight game, 39-23. Leclerc finished with 34 saves, while Smith had 22.

The Tigers have a couple of weekends off before a home-and-home series with in-state rival Denver, Dec. 8-9.
