BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - The Colorado College Tigers scored three times on the power play Tuesday night on their way to a 4-1 win over the UConn Huskies in a non-conference match-up from Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Conn. The Tigers finished 3-for-5 on the power play and got goals from four different skaters on the way to ending a seven-game winless streak with the win.
UConn went 0-for-6 with the extra skater and were outshot 35-24 on the night. Sophomore goaltender Rob Nichols (Dallas, Texas) made 31 saves, eclipsing the 30 save mark for the fourth-straight game and 10th time this season. The Huskies fall to 5-10-4 with the loss.
The Tigers scored their first power play goal of the night at 16:20 in the first period, following a high sticking call on Cody Sharib (Needham, Mass.). Nichols tried to clear a puck but Fejes Hunter picked off the clearing attempt and shoveled it to Zach Aman who got a shot off. The rebound found Charlie Taft at the far left post who buried it on the empty net for a 1-0 lead.
The Huskies answered right back, scoring off the ensuing face-off just 18 seconds later. Freshman Kasperi Ojantakanen (Helsinki, Finland) cleared the zone to classmate Corey Ronan (Franklin, Mass.) into the neutral zone. Ronan hit a streaking Spencer Naas (Minnetonka, Minn.) up the middle of the ice, who beat his defender and shoveled a backhanded shot past Tyler Marble for his seventh on the year, knotting it at 1-1.
Ronan was called for boarding at 7:28 in the second period and Colorado College capitalized on the power play again, taking a 2-1 lead at 8:43. Defensemen Jacob Slavin blasted a shot from the left wing and Scott Wamsganz was set-up in front of the net, getting a deflection past Nichols for the Tigers second power play goal of the night.
The Tigers struck for their third extra-skater goal early in the third period to take a two-goal edge. UConn's Joey Ferriss (Novi, Mich.) was whistled for hooking at 1:21 and the Huskies nearly killed it off before Colorado College struck with just three seconds left on the power play. Slavin took a slap shot from the high point and beat Nichols low, glove side through some traffic for his first of the season and a 3-1 advantage.
UConn got three-straight power play chances in the third following the Slavin goal but came up empty. The Tigers finished off the scoring at 17:07 as Zach Aman banged in a rebound in front to produce the 4-1 final. Colorado College goaltender Tyler Marble made 23 saves in goal to register his third win on the year.
The Huskies will close out the non-conference portion of their schedule on Friday night with a trip to West Point to take on former Atlantic Hockey foe Army in a 7:00 pm start.
