SCSU Hockey Heads To Frozen Faceoff
The #1 St. Cloud State University men's hockey team rallied past Miami University 4-3 in overtime Sunday night at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. The Huskies advance to play in the Frozen Faceoff Friday against North Dakota.
The Huskies trailed 2-0 after one period, but got on the board early in the second period on a Jimmy Schuldt goal. Schuldt's tally came on a one-timer, with a pass across the blue line from Robby Jackson setting up the score.
However, the RedHawks responded five (yes, literally five) seconds later when Karch Bachman scored on a breakaway to restore Miami's two-goal lead.
Mikey Eyssimont scored for St. Cloud State with just 1:47 remaining in the second period to get the Huskies within a goal, and captain Judd Peterson scored late in the third period to send the game to overtime.
Eyssimont notched the game-winner on a goal assisted by Patrick Newell at 8:14 of overtime, sending the crowd of just over 2,000 at the HBHNC into hysterics.
