Huskies Advance with Game 3 Overtime Thriller
The #1 St. Cloud State Men's Hockey team (24-7-6) came back to beat Miami University (12-20-5) 4-3 last night in overtime. The Game 3 win earns the Huskies a trip to the NCHC Frozen Faceoff next weekend at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
The Huskies trailed 2-0 at the end of the first period, but opened the scoring in the second to bring it to 2-1 -- only to see Miami fire right back and expand their lead to 3-1. SCSU would add another in the 2nd, and the score stood at 3-2 Miami after two.
St. Cloud State eventually tied the game at 3-3 at 14:08 in the third, and went on to score the game winner at 8:14 into overtime.
