UMD scores off turnover, fluky goal to tie game after one

CC Mike Boivin actionA turnover and little bad luck erased an early Colorado College lead during the first period.

Minnesota-Duluth’s Keegan Flaherty forced a turnover by CC’s Jared Hanson and fired a centering pass on net that went in off Tigers defenseman Ian Young with 2:03 left in the opening period to tie the game at 1-1.

The fluky goal erased an early 1-0 CC lead when senior defenseman Mike Boivin scored his 11th of the year when he skated over a step and fired a hard shot high glove side from between the circles to beat UMD freshman goalie Matt McNeely. That power play goal is just the second McNeely has allowed in his last 10 starts.
