Improbably, CC leads 1-0 after one

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.
