C.C. Beats North Dakota, Gets Gophers Friday Night in St. Paul
Peter Stoykewych scored just his second goal of the season in overtime, lifting Colorado College to a 4-3 win over North Dakota in the quarterfinals of the WCHA Final Five.
The Tigers trailed 2-1 after 20 minutes and were out-shot throughout the game, but got a second period short-handed goal by Alexander Krushelnyski for a 2-2 tie, then took the lead in the third when Hunter Fejes scored his second goal in as many games.
Drake Caggiula had two goals and Danny Kristo also scored for North Dakota, which had won three consecutive Final Five titles. Clarke Saunders had 19 saves for North Dakota. Joe Howe had 29 saves for Colorado College, which will face Minnesota in the tournament's semifinals on Friday.
