Colorado College senior goalie Joe Howe made 17 saves as the host Tigers weathered an early storm by Minnesota Duluth, which led in shots on goal by an eye-popping 14-0 margin only 8:41 into the game, beefore CC took a 1-0 lead.
That spurt included the Tigers’ league-worst penalty kill handling three minutes of UMD power play (seven shots) before the CC power play generated the team’s first shot of the game; by senior defenseman Mike Boivin with 10:52 left.
CC out shot Duluth 10-3 for the rest of the period and capitalized on it when freshman Cody Bradley passed from the corner across to the right faceoff circle to freshman Hunter Fejes who skated a couplee strides forward and lifted the puck past UMD goalie Matt McNeely’ glove for a 1-0 lead with 1:58 left in the opening period.
