Tigers jump out to 2-0 lead after one period

An excellent first period by the Tigers’ second line, centered by captain Nick Dineen, sparked No. 8 Colorado College to a 2-0 lead.

A good forecheck, led by some vicious hits by Dineen set up the opening goal. A turnover forced by CC junior Scott Winkler and controlled by defenseman Mike Boivin led to a breakaway for Alexander Krushelnyski, who scored his sixth of the season when his shot trickled between SCSU goalie Ryan Faragher’s leg pads for a 1-0 lead with 11:31 left in the opening period.

After a fast start by the Huskies and a 3-0 edge in shots, the Tigers came back, outshooting the visitors 12-6 for the period.

Dineen made it 2-0 when he banged home a rebound off a shot by Krushelnyski with 4:48 left in the period.

The Colorado College defense performed well, keeping the Huskies to only one shot below the slot.
