      COLUMBUS, Ohio –
       The Ohio State men’s hockey team scored three late goals to down No. 19 Bowling Green, 3-2, Friday in BGSU Ice Arena in Bowling Green, Ohio. The Buckeyes tied the game at one at 15:28 of the third on freshman Matthew Weis’ goal and went ahead 2-1 at 18:26 on a tally from junior Tyler Lundey. The Falcons tied the game just 18 seconds later (18:44), but junior Anthony Greco scored the gamewinner at 19:26, following a Weis faceoff win, to lift the Buckeyes to the victory.

       

      The Buckeyes (3-5-1, 0-0-0 B1G) and Falcons (7-3-1, 5-1-0 WCHA) will close the weekend series at 7 p.m. Saturday in Value City Arena in Columbus.

      Friday in Bowling Green, the Falcons scored the only goal of the first period, as Brent Tate tallied at 8:41. The Buckeyes, who had two power play chances in the period, outshot Bowling Green in the stanza, 8-6. The Falcons’ only power play chance of the game came in the first.

       

      Bowling Green carried play in the second, outshooting the Buckeyes, 11-4, but Buckeye sophomore goalie Matt Tomkins stopped all 11 Falcon attempts on net. Ohio State had two opportunities with the man advantage in the period.

       

      Ohio State continued to trail 1-0 until less than five minutes remained in regulation. Weis tied the game at 1 at 15:28 with his first collegiate goal, driving the net after taking a pass from junior Sam Jardine. At 18:26 Lundey netted his first goal of the season, as he put in the rebound of a shot by classmate Craig Dalrymple, who was playing his first game of the season. Freshman Christian Lampasso had the second assist on the goal. Just 18 seconds later, the Falcons’ Tate converted a 3-on-2, tying the game at two all. Less than a minute after that, Weis won a faceoff and Greco converted, putting Ohio State ahead at 19:26. The goal, Greco’s team-best fifth goal of the season, stood as his second gamewinner this year and the fifth of his career (out of 17 goals). Ohio State outshot Bowling Green, 12-10, in the period.

       

      For the game, the Buckeyes were outshot, 27-24. Tomkins had 25 saves in 59:29 for the Buckeyes, while Bowling Green’s Tommy Burke made 21 stops in 59:35. Ohio State blocked 15 shots, led by defensemen senior Justin DaSilva and sophomore Drew Brevig with three each.

       

      Ohio State was scoreless on four power play chances in the game, with BGSU unable to convert its one chance.

      ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Five different players scored for the University of Michigan men's ice hockey team in its 6-3 victory over American International on Saturday night (Nov. 15) inside Yost Ice Arena on Military Appreciation Night. The Wolverines finished off a weekend series sweep against AIC, and improved to 3-1 at Yost Ice Arena this season.

       

      Senior Travis Lynch notched his first career two-goal game, Zach Hyman and Alex Kile each had a goal and an assist, and freshman Zach Werenski added two assists to lead the Wolverines, who scored two power play goals to snap an 0-for-18 skid on the man advantage. Michigan outshot AIC 46-24 on the night, and Zach Nagelvoort made 21 saves to pick up his second straight win in net.

       

      AIC struck first on a power play when Carson Grolla beat Nagelvoort with a wrist shot at 17:44, but Michigan would bounce back and go on to dictate the pace for the remainder of the first period. At the 10:55 mark, Hyman pounced on a loose puck during a scramble in front of the net to tie the score at 1-1. The Wolverines scored again just a minute later, when Lynch deflected in a slap shot from sophomore Kevin Lohan to give U-M the lead midway through the first frame.

       

      Michigan didn't take long to score another goal, as Kile put home a rebound during a man-up opportunity to bring the score to 3-1 with 7:21 to go in the first. The Wolverines outshot AIC 19-6 in the first 20 minutes.

       

      At the 12:41 mark of the second period, sophomore JT Compher found junior Boo Nieves open in the slot, and Nieves beat AIC goaltender Hunter Leisner (40 saves) over the shoulder for his first goal of the season.  

       

      AIC's Austin Orszulek scored over the right shoulder of Nagelvoort at 8:31 and again at 15:56 to cut the Michigan lead to 4-3, and it would stay that way heading into the second intermission.

       

      Sophomore Tyler Motte came inches from scoring midway through the third, but Leisner made a great save to deny the goal. Then with 9:34 left, Lynch whipped one past the goalie from the left faceoff circle for his second goal of the night. Less than two minutes later, junior captain Andrew Copp's wrister from the goal line during a power play, putting U-M up 6-3.

       

      Freshman Sam Piazza earned his first career point on the night, an assist on Copp's highlight reel goal.

       

      Senior Andrew Sinelli almost scored Michigan's seventh goal late in the final period, but his shot rang off the post.

      Badgers bested, 5-2, by Colorado College

      Wisconsin loses first of two games this weekend against Colorado opponents

      http://www.uwbadgers.com/sports/m-hockey/recaps/112214aaa.html

      COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Wisconsin men’s hockey team fell Friday, 5-2, as Colorado College killed four penalties and assembled a three-goal second period to fend off the Badgers at the Broadmoor World Arena.

      “We did some good things,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said. “The power play gave us energy and we had some chances. Our face offs were good tonight. Wags (Ryan Wagner) was really good (with face offs) on the penalty kill.

      We still haven’t got over that hump. We’ve talked about in practice getting that confidence back. We feel good there, but we haven’t transposed that into the games yet.” 

      After killing a Cameron Hughes elbowing penalty early in the first period, the Badgers (0-7-0) were not as successful the second time around.

      Gliding from the left point toward the middle of the ice, Stevens Point, Wisconsin native Aaron Harstad fed the puck to his defensive partner Ian Young along the right boards. Harstad then received a pass back and loaded a wrist shot that missed multiple players in front of the net and snuck behind Wisconsin goaltender Landon Peterson.

      The goal marked the sixth time in seven games, UW’s opponent scored first.

      A close first 20 minutes was no indication of the second frame, as CC (3-7-0) exploded for three goals.

      Wisconsin controlled the puck in the Tigers’ zone for the opening 30 seconds of the period, but was quickly silenced.

      A blocked slap shot off the stick of a Colorado College player landed in the slot and was tipped back to Hunter Fejes on the blue line. The Anchorage, Alaska product directed the puck toward the net, which was tipped up and over the shoulder of Peterson by Luc Gerdes.

      A Wisconsin goal by Morgan Zulinick—his first of the season—broke up the three-goal ambush.

      CC rung a breakout pass around the boards that Adam Rockwood collected and eventually guided to the top of the left face off circle. Zulinick controlled the pass and fired a slap shot past Tigers net minder Chase Perry. Joseph LaBate was also credited with an assist on the play.

      UW kept the score within one for just over eight minutes before Scott Wamsganz extended Colorado College’s lead.

      Leading a 2-on-2, Wamsganz skated across the Badgers’ blue line and moved toward the middle of the ice. He put a shot on Peterson and trailed his teammates as they crashed the net. The 6-4 senior tracked the bouncing puck and backhanded it top shelf. 

      The final goal of the period came on a Jared Hanson one-timer.

      Wisconsin and Colorado College split the scoring in the third period, as Cody Bradley netted a goal for the Tigers to make it 5-1.

      Jason Ford registered his first tally of 2014-15 on a shot in the low slot. After protecting the puck along the boards, Ford banked a pass off those same boards to Tim Davison at the point. Ford headed straight for the slot, and after Davison fed Grant Besse along the side boards, the Plymouth, Minnesota native spotted Ford in front for the one-time finish.

      Peterson faced 29 shots in the game, while Perry was forced to make 24 saves.

      Wisconsin failed to score on four attempts with the man advantage, while CC succeeded once on its four chances.

      UW’s loss snapped a seven-game losing streak for the Tigers and put the all-time series record at 111-67-9 in UW’s favor.

      Tim Davison led all skaters with four shots on goal, as he finished the night at even in the plus/minus column.

      “We have this quote on our t-shirts that we work out in that says, “Earned, Never Given,” Eaves said. “We have to earn this. It’s not going to happen magically.”

      The Badgers head to Denver to play DU Saturday at 8 p.m. CT. ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain airs the game live on television.

       Behind 29 saves from sophomore goaltender Matt Tomkins, the Ohio State men’s hockey team skated to a 3-0 shutout win over Michigan State in a Big Ten game Friday in Value City Arena. Ohio State had goals from seniors Matt Johnson and Darik Angeli, along with a goal and an assist from sophomore Nick Schilkey, in the victory. After a scoreless first period, the Buckeyes scored twice in the second and then added a goal early in the third for the victory.

       

      The Buckeyes (4-7-1, 1-1-0-0 B1G) head to South Bend, Ind., next week for the Shillelagh Tournament. Friday (Nov. 28), Ohio State will face Western Michigan in the first round, with host Notre Dame taking on defending NCAA champion Union. Championship and consolation games will be held Nov. 29.

       

      Ohio State and Michigan State (4-7-0, 1-1-0-0 B1G) combined for 25 shots in the first period, with Ohio State, which had the only power play chance, putting 14 on the Spartan net. Tomkins stopped all 11 shots he faced in the stanza.

       

      In the second period, Ohio State took a 1-0 lead on Johnson’s third goal of the year. The goal was not called on the ice during play. At the next break, more than a minute later, the officials went to video replay and it showed the puck had crossed the line, giving Ohio State the lead at 2:16. A pass from senior Chad Niddery, who was led into the zone by freshman Christian Lampasso, went off Johnson and over the line with the MSU goaltender deep in the net. At 7:54 Schilkey, standing just outside the crease, had a perfect redirection of a shot from classmate Drew Brevig with the Buckeyes on the power play, giving Ohio State a 2-0 lead. A third sophomore, David Gust, had the second assist on the goal. Shots were 7-6 in favor of the Spartans in the period. Ohio State had two power play chances and stopped the Spartans on one opportunity, which came at 5:01 and was shortened after a MSU penalty.

       

      At 3:14 of the third period, Angeli completed a rush up the ice, scoring off a pass from Schilkey, with junior Sam Jardine on the second assist. Jardine is tied for first on the team with six assists this year and has a helper in four of his last five games. Tomkins stopped all 11 Michigan State attempts in the period and helped the Ohio State penalty kill stop two Spartan chances. The Spartans pulled Hildebrand with more than three minutes left for the extra attacker, but could not convert and a MSU penalty at 18:11 ended the threat.

       

      The Spartans ended the game outshooting the Buckeyes, 29-28. Tomkins played all 60 minutes in his first career shutout, making 29 saves. He now has a 2.11 goals-against average and .917 save percentage on the year, playing in eight games. Hildebrand played 58:22 for the Spartans and made 25 saves. Ohio State blocked 16 Spartan shots, with Schilkey and junior Craig Dalrymple blocking three each to lead the way.

       

      The Buckeyes were 1-for-4 on the power play, marking their first power play goal in four games. The squad was 3-for-3 on the penalty kill after giving up a goal in each of the last two games.

       

      The shutout was the Buckeyes’ first since Logan Davis blanked Canisius Nov. 15, 2013. It was the program’s fourth shutout of the Spartans in 125 games between the schools and the first since a 1-0 win Nov. 30, 2012.
