Lighting The Lamp


Michigan Tech 3, Denver 2: The Huskies got their first win since October 15th as Patrick McCadden had a goal and an assist. Kevin Genoe made 23 saves and Ryan Furne got the game winner.

North Dakota 3, St. Cloud State 3: Matt Frattin had two goals, including one with just 3 and a half minutes left as the Sioux salvaged a point in St. Cloud. North Dakota actually increased their WCHA lead as both Denver and Duluth lost.

Minnesota 5, Wisconsin 2: The Gophers got two goals from Taylor Matson and a goal and an assist from Jacob Cepis and are now tied for the 6th and final home ice playoff spot.

St. Lawrence 5, RPI 3: Despite being ranked in all the national polls, the Engineers sit in 6th in their own conference. Jordan Dewey had a goal and an assist, and Aaron Bogosian and Jacob Drewskie each had two assists for the Saints.

Colgate 5, Dartmouth 3: I don’t want to call the ECAC race (though it has probably been virtually decided for awhile), but the loss to Colgate ended Dartmouth’s slim title hopes. Francois Brisebois had two goals, including the game winner, and held onto his spot on college hockey’s all name team.

Michigan 6, Western Michigan 3: The Wolverines got two goals from David Lynch, and Craig Pateryn had a goal and three assists as the Wolverines kept pace with Notre Dame. Western Michigan sits in 4th in the CCHA but will need a late charge to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive. A win tomorrow and a good showing vs. first place Notre Dame next weekend will help.
