Senior captain Chris McKelvie enters the weekend fifth on the team in scoring with a careerhigh 6-5=11 points. In the Beavers’ last four games, McKelvie has recorded two goals and four assists, which includes the game-winning goal in BSU’s Nov. 27 3-2 victory over No. 1 Miami (Ohio).

The Match up

The No. 4 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team again puts its unbeaten record at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse in 2009-10 on the line this weekend when it welcomes long-time rival Minnesota State University, Mankato for a nonconference affair to close the book on the first half of the season. The Beavers enter the series 13-2-1 overall and seek to protect an 8-0-0 mark in the Glas this season-the team’s 43rd and final campaign in the hallowed hockey barn. BSU has won over 76-percent of its home games since opening the Glas for the 1966-67 campaign, posting a 498-142-41 all-time record in the building. Minnesota State travels north toting a 7-8-1 overall record. Winners of three of their last four contests, the Mavericks split a WCHA series with Minnesota last weekend tripping up the Golden Gophers at Mariucci Arena Friday, 3-1, before dropping the second half of the home-and-home series, 6-2, on their own ice.

The Rivalry

This weekend’s series marks the continuation of one of BSU’s most often revisited rivalries. The series got its start Nov. 25, 1974 and has included 90 previous meetings which places it third to only WisconsinSuperior (129 games) and St. Scholastica (91 games) as BSU’s most familiar opponent of all time. The Beavers enter the weekend toting a 44-33-13 record versus the Mavericks all-time and are 29-11-5 versus MSU at the Glas. Since the teams each made the jump to the major college hockey level in the late 1990s, MSU owns a 13-5-2 record and has defeated the Beavers in the last four head-to-head match ups. BSU and MSU built a large portion of their series in the NCAA Division II and III ranks as members of the NCHA. The teams even met in the 1985 quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III championship with a young Tom Serratore in uniform for the Beavers, while the Mavericks featured a forward by the name of Troy Jutting--nearly 25 years later, the two now have very different roles for their respective teams.

The Unparalleled Tradition

The 2009-10 season represents the 11th at the NCAA Division I level, and the 54th year of intercollegiate competition, for a BSU program which has assembled one of the finest traditions in all of American collegiate sports. u BSU owns 13 NAIA, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III national titles. u The Beavers have captured 21 conference titles in 53 seasons of intercollegiate competition. u BSU won the CHA regular-season championship in 2003-2004 and 2004-2005, becoming the league’s first repeat regularseason titlest and captured the 2008-09 championship on the heels of a 2007-08 crown. BSU has also won CHA Tournament titles in 2005, 2006, and 2009 en route to participating in the NCAA Tournament. u In 2009, the Beavers became the first No. 16 seed ever to reach the Frozen Four. In just its 10th year of competition at the NCAA Division I level, only Denver reached hockey’s grandest stage faster. u BSU has developed six NHL players, six Olympians and 81 All-America honorees. u BSU has compiled an all-time record of 958-460-83 (.665) in 1,499 games and has the highest all-time winning percentage of the 58 programs which currently comprise NCAA Division I ice hockey.

The Beavers are coming off another successful College Hockey America campaign pulling down their fourth regular-season title in six years with a 12-5-1 record. In the last six seasons, no NCAA Division I men’s ice hockey team has a better winning percentage in league play than the Beaver’s .717 mark (82-29-11) versus the CHA, which includes a 4-0-0 mark in 2009-10.

Our share of OT

Extending their Nov. 28 games versus Ohio State to overtime, the Beavers have now played four overtime games in 200910, matching their season totals from each of the last two seasons. In the 11 years since the Beavers moved to Division I, they have escaped overtime with at least a tie in 77.6-percent (52) of the 67 games that have needed extra time to decide the outcome. Since March 11, 2006, BSU is 7-2-10 games extended to sudden death, including a 2-1-1 mark in extra-time games in 2009-10.

Preseason All-CHA

This season the Beavers had two players picked to the six-member squad. Forward Matt Read and defenseman Brad Hunt, both First-Team All-CHA picks last winter, were named 2009-10 Preseason All-CHA with Read pulling down Preseason Player of the Year laurels.

Oh captain, My Captain

Senior forward Chris McKelvie (New Brighton, Minn.) will captain the Beavers during 2009-08 campaign. Senior defenseman Kyle Hardwick (Warroad, Minn.) and junior forward Matt Read (Ilderton, Ontario) will have the “A” on their jerseys designating them as assistant captains.

Beaver scoring by class

As could be expected from any team, the Beavers’ scoring output was headlined in BSU scoring by class 2008-09 by its upper classmen...but not Sophomores 20g 31a 51 pts by much. The seniors led the charge with Juniors 24g 26a 50 pts 50-52=102 points, but ironically it was the Freshmen 10g 23a 33 pts freshman class that gave BSU a boost in Seniors 9g 17a 25 pts -through 12/4/09 scoring totalling 25-48=73 points to finish second. The class may be a year older in 2009-10, but the trend remains the same. This year’s sophomore class currently leads the team in scoring with 20-31=51 points followed closely by the juniors (24-26=50) who pace the team with 24 goals.

Keep ’em under two

In 2009-10 when BSU has allowed its opponents two-or-fewer goals per game, it is 11-1-0. Through 16 games, BSU currently leads the nation in scoring defense, allowing a meager 1.75 goals per game, while giving up just 1.37 in eight CHA contest.

Three is the magic number

In 2008-09 three was the threshold for BSU. The Beavers allowed three or more goals on 18 occasions and were 2-15-1 in those games. Conversely, when BSU scored three or more goals, they were 16-5-1. In 2009-10, BSU is 2-1-1 when allowing three or more and are a perfect 10-0-1 when posting three or more goals.

The early goal gets the win

Of the Beavers’ 37 2008-09 contests, the team to score first won 26 times. BSU opponents won 12-of-21 of the games they were first to light the lamp while BSU was unbeaten 14-of-16 times it scored first. This season, BSU is 11-2-0 when scoring first and 2-0-1 when its opponent gets on the board first.

D-Men On the Scoreboards Bemidji State’s defensive corps recorded two assists in the Subway Holiday Classic last weekend, giving BSU defensive players at least one point in 69 of the last 81 games. Averaging 2.44 points per game, the 2009-10 blueline corps is on pace for its most productive season since the 2003-04 defense pitched in 2.31 points per game. During the 2008-09 campaign, BSU defensemen combined for 1762=79 points (2.19 ppg). BSU’s blue liners accounted for five goals and 22 assists in the team’s final 10 games.

Read Makes it better

There is really no way to get around it, the Bemidji State men’s hockey team is better when junior forward Matt Read is on the ice. Since stepping on campus in the fall of 2007 Read has a plus/minus rating of +44 and the Beavers are 265-1 when he scores a goal, which included a 12-2-0 mark during the 2008-09 campaign and a perfect 9-0-0 mark this season.

BSU versus the Nationally ranked

BSU is coming off its first meeting with a nationally-ranked opponent of the 2009-10 in a No. 1 Miami (Ohio) team Nov. 27--a game which BSU won. Since the Beavers made the jump to the NCAA Division I ranks for the 1999-2000 campaign, BSU is 5-36-2 versus teams in the top-15 according to USAToday/ USA Hockey Magazine.

Bemidji State vs. No. 1

The Nov. 27 meeting with No. 1 Miami marked the fifth time Bemidji State had gone head-to-head with a top-ranked team. The win, the first over the nation’s No. 1 team, helped BSU improve to 1-4-0 all-time version the to team in the land. Prior to the victory over Miami, BSU fell to St. Cloud State 4-2 and 11-3 Dec. 14-15, 2001 and dropping a 6-2 contest to Denver Jan. 18, 2002 an 4-3 overtime heartbreaker in the Northeast Regional semifinal Mar. 14, 2005.

having scored in each of the Beavers’ last two games. Chris McKelvie, Ben Kinne, Jamie MacQueen and Tyler Lehrke each posted at lease one point in each game of the sweep last weekend, with McKelvie leading the charge with a goal and three assists.

Offensive Defenseman

Sophomore defenseman Brad Hunt was a big factor for the Beavers on both ends of the ice in 2008-09 and that trend is extending into 2009-10. In addition to his duties in BSU’s defensive zone, he has become offensive threat--especially on the power play. A year ago, he led all BSU blue liners and was third on the team scoring 9-23=32 points with a teamleading 7-16=23 coming on the man advantage. This winter he already has five goals and a team-best 11 assist to pace all BSU defenders and is fourth among the nation’s defenders, with 16 points. His nine points (4-5=9) on the power play paces the team.

Running up the score

It may just be 16 games into the 2009-10 campaign, but the Beavers enter the weekend scoring at 4.00 goals per game--a figure that seats them third in the country. BSU has netted five or more goals eight times this season and posted six in five of the last eight outings. That is just what the doctor ordered for a team with three goaltenders that opened the season without a single collegiate start under their belts.

Quite a run

Owner of the nation’s longest unbeaten streak to start 2009-10 (7-0-1), BSU has been on quite a run. But it gets more impressive when you take into account the second half of the 2008-09 campaign. Since Jan. 24, 2009, the team’s last 34 games, the Beavers have posted a 27-5-2 record--that’s a winning at an 83-percent clip!

Then there were six

Matt Climie, a 2008 graduate of Bemidji State and the Beavers’ goaltender in the 2005 and 2006 National Tournament runs, was called up to join the Dallas Stars Friday April 4,2009 and got his first NHL start Saturday. His 24 saves led the Stars to a 5-4 overtime victory over St. Louis. Climie’s trip to the NHL makes six products of the Beaver Hockey program to skate in the NHL ranks. He joins former BSU teammate Andrew Murray (2001-05) as the only other former Beavers currently in the NHL.

Penalty-kill power

The current school mark for power-play efficiency is .868 and was posted by the 200405 squad when it squashed 192-of-221 opponent opportunities. In 2009-10, the team has allowed just 12 power-play goals on 86 opponent opportunities (.860), but has been downright stingy in CHA play. BSU has allowed just four power-play goals in 47 opponent opportunities spread over six league games (.915).

Put it in the books after two

In 2008-09, when BSU took a lead into the third period, it was a perfect 14-0-0. The team is 11-0-0 this season. Since making the jump to NCAA Division I in 1999-2000, the Beavers are 130-9-12 when leading after two periods of play.

Read all about BSU’s scoring leaders

In 89 games and just over two seasons in a green and white uniform, junior Matt Read has piled up 90 points (35-55=90). Sitting tied for seventh on the BSU Division I-era scoring list, he ranks fifth in assists (55) and eighth in goals scored (35).

Nov. 21, Brad Hunt led the Beavers to a 6-3 victory over Ala.-Huntsville posting four points (3-1=4) and his first collegiate hat trick. He became the first BSU blueliner to achieve the scoring feat since Mar. 13, 2004 (John Haider), the 10th hat trick for BSU at the NCAA Division I level and just the sixth D-man in the history of the program.

It’s good to be home

The Beavers have won the last 11 games on their home ice, including a 8-0-0 mark to start the 2009-10 campaign. The last time BSU lost at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse was Mar. 6, 2009 to Robert Morris, 3-2. BSU’s 11-game winning streak pales in comparison to its school-record 57game winning streak at home stretching from Dec. 16, 1981 to Dec. 14, 1985. The 2009-10 season is the 43rd and final season in the Glas at the Beavers have plans to move into their new state-of-the-art facility, the Bemidji Regional Events Center, prior to the 2010-11 season. Since opening the Glas in 1967-68, the Beavers have posted an astounding 498-142-41 overall record and recorded just one losing season in the life of the building (2000-01 / 3-11-2). BSU needs just two wins to gain victories in 500 games in the hallowed hockey barn. BSU is 16-47-3 all-time versus the WCHA, but this year is 1-1-0 after splitting with Minnesota Nov. 14-15.

Just 16 games into his freshman season, Jordan George has been a pleasant surprise for the Beavers. He’s settled into the top line and currently leads the team with 13 assists and sits tied for second on the team in goals (6) and total points (19). His 19 points rank him second among the NCAA’s top rookies.

However, sporting a remarkable laundry-list of achievements after eight years as head coach at Bemidji State, it appears Tom Serratore is more than comfortable in the role. The legacy Serratore was asked to continue upon accepting the role as Bemidji State’s seventh head coach in 2001 is one of the finest in all of collegiate athletics. Serratore walks by the trophy case running the length of the John Glas Fieldhouse concourse on his way to practice each day, in full view of the 13 small-college national championship trophies enshrined therein, trophies won by future hockey Hall of Fame member R.H. “Bob” Peters. Serratore not only had the challenge of inheriting one of the true dynasties in the history of collegiate athletics, he also was called to oversee its growth into a Division I program. While Serratore will be the first to admit he’ll not be able to replicate Peters’ achievements, there can be little doubt the program is in the right hands. Serratore’s Milestone Wins BSU finished 4-26-4 in 2000-01, the year before Serratore took control of 1a 10/12/01 vs Minnesota St. 3/14/03 vs Findlay the program. He led BSU to a 12-18-5 record during his rookie campaign, and 25 b 2/27/04 at Air Force has increased BSU’s win total each of the four years that followed. BSU finished 43 50 11/19/04 at Niagara 23-13-1 in 2004-05, giving the Beavers a school-record for wins in a Division 75 11/11/05 at Wayne St. (Mich.) I season and back-to-back 20-win campaigns for the first time as a Division I 100 1/5/07 vs Wayne St. (Mich.) program. In 2008-09 Serratore led the Beavers through the regular season to 125 11/29/08 vs. Michigan Tech post their fourth CHA championship in six years before their third CHA Tourna- 150 11/21/09 vs. Ala.-Huntsville ment championship, the program’s first NCAA Division I Tournament victory and a- coaching debut a chance represent the university and the CHA in the Frozen Four for the first time. Under Serratore’s guidance, 23 BSU skaters have earned All-CHA honors, including two-time First-Team All-CHA picks Marty Goulet (2002-03), Bryce Methven (2003-04), Matt Climie (2006-07), Travis Winter (2006-07 and Cody Bostock (2007-08) with three Beavers earning CHA Rookie of the Year laurels. BSU has had multiple skaters named First-Team All-CHA six of the last seven seasons, including a school-record three first-teamers in 2003. Academic excellence has been a staple of the BSU program under Serratore. The Beavers had a CHArecord 18 skaters named Academic All-CHA in 2008, and under Serratore’s guidance have a league-high 116 Academic All-CHA picks over the last eight years. Niagara is second with 90 selections in the same span. In addition, BSU has had eight CoSIDA Academic All-District V selections under Serratore, including 2005 FirstTeam Academic All-America selection Peter Jonsson. Serratore’s achievements have not gone unnoticed. He is a four-time CHA Coach of the Year, winning the honor in 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2009 and in eight years as a collegiate head coach he has been named a finalist for the Spencer Penrose Award, given annually to the American Hockey Coaches Association’s National Coach of the Year, five times, including a runner-up finish in 2009. Serratore took the reigns as the seventh head coach at Bemidji State in 2001 after having spent the previous three seasons as the associate head coach for Peters.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) turned away 20 shots and Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) scored the first gamewinning goal of his collegiate career Friday as the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team opened the 2009-10 season with a 3-1 victory over the United State Air Force Academy at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. In a continuation of a series that has traditionally been all Bemidji State, the Beavers rebounded from a rare pair of road losses a the hands of the Falcons a year ago, with a commanding performance versus Air Force tonight. The Beavers held a 22-10 advantage in shots on goal through two periods and a 28-21 edge in the game as BSU improved to 24-8-2 all-time versus the Falcons and 15-1-2 versus USAFA at the Glas. BSU dominated play, especially early, winning battles in the corners, earning face off victories and beating USAFA to loose pucks. Senior captain Chris McKelvie (New Brighton, Minn.) was the first to see the fruits of that steady hustle when he opened the scoring midway through the first period, one-timing a pass from Jamie MacQueen (So., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) into the back of the net. Linemate Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn) was credited with his first assist of the season after starting the play with a pass out of a scrum on the boards. Taking a 1-0 lead into the second period, the Beavers would stretch their lead to 2-0 a the 9:47 mark of the frame when newcomer Jordan George (Fr., F, Verona, Wis.) found Lowe streaking down the slot for a one-timer over the left shoulder of the Air Force goaltender Andrew Volkening. Matt Read (Jr., G, Ilderton, Ontario), BSU’s leading-scorer in 2008-09, extended his scoring streak to seven games with an assist on the play. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) put the Beavers up 3-0 with just over five minutes to play netting his first goal since Feb. 15, 2009 to close out the BSU scoring effort. Eric Artman would snap a wrister shot from between the circles past Bakala to get the Falcons on the board with 1:49 to play. The goal would spoil Bakala’s run at a shutout, but it was too little, too late for Air Force as the Beavers protected their home ice and sent the electric following of 2,148 in attendance home with smiles on their faces and a win in their pocket. The subplot of the Beavers-Falcons series is the sibling rivalry of the teams’ head coaches. Younger brother Tom Serratore got the best of his older brother Frank, a 1982 graduate of Bemidji State and former goaltender for the Beavers, for the 19th time in 24 career meetings (19-3-1) and for the first time since USAFA left College Hockey America for Atlantic Hockey following the 2006-07 campaign.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) recorded a careerhigh four points as the Bemidji State men’s ice hockey team completed the series sweep over the United State Air Force Academy, 7-3. The Beavers jumped out to a 4-1 lead after just 12:24 in the fast-paced, heated battle between the former College Hockey America foes, and would hold the pedal to the floor to post seven goals for the first time since a 7-5 triumph over Wayne State Feb. 29, 2008. A smorgasbord of goal scoring, the match up featured even-strength, power-play, short-handed and unassisted goals. In all 10 Beavers got in on the scoring. In addition to Read’s career night, Aaron McLeod (Fr., F, Ottawa, Ontario), Brady Wacker (Fr., D, Jansen, Saskatchewan) and Jordan George (Fr., F, Verona, Wis.) each registered their first collegiate goal in the victory. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) got the scoring started 4:13 into the game on passes from Shea Walters (So., F, Hibbing, Minn.) and Ben Kinne (So., F, St. Paul, Minn.). The goal, already the second of the junior’s season, matched his total from the 2008-09 campaign. But the BSU lead would be short-lived. Just 21-seconds later, AFA’s Jacques Lamoureaux evened the score at 1-1. Twenty-four hours removed from a contest during which the BSU defensive pairings were held without a single point, a pair of blueliners put the Beavers in front for good. Wacker netted his first lamplighter in the green and white at the seven-minute-mark on a seeing-eye bullet from the point with help from Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.) and Chris Peluso (Sr., Wadena, Minn.). Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) recorded his first point in the waning moments of the Beavers’ second powerplay opportunity, marking BSU’s first special teams goal of the season. Read picked up his first assist of the night on the play. The first goal of Read’s junior campaign came 1:06 later when the Falcons’ goaltender, Andrew Volkening, misplayed the puck and left the Beavers’ leading scorer with an open net for his fourth career short-handed goal. Air Force was the first to strike in the second stanza. Jeff Hajner took advantage of a five-minute major penalty that sent Walters to the showers early, for his first marker of the season just 46 seconds in to the power-play opportunity, effectively cutting the Beavers lead in half, 4-2. It was Read again who stretched the BSU advantage to three goals midway through the period. The junior benefited from a battle in front of the AFA bench won by Cramer. The International Falls, Minn. native swept the puck up the boards into the neutral zone, where Read picked it up, skated it into the zone and beat Volkening for the second time of the night. The BSU lead would swell to four goals, 6-2, at the 12-minute mark when George, who was positioned on the left post, stuffed a Hunt rebound past the Falcon goaltender on the power play, ending Volkening’s night after 32:12 of play. AFA would add a third goal in the opening minute of the final frame, but McLeod, in just his second collegiate game, would pick off an errant pass on the Falcons’ blue line and register an unassisted goal to seal the Beavers’ non-conference win. Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) turned away 21 AFA shots and allowed three goals en route to his second collegiate win in as many nights.

MARQUETTE, Mich. (Berry Events Center) -- Down 3-2 with just 10.6-seconds left in the game, sophomore forward Ben Kinne (St. Paul, Minn.) nudged the puck past Brian Stewart from a scrum in front of the net to even the score to 3-3 and help the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team salvage a tie in a series-opener at Northern Michigan University’s Berry Events Center Friday. Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) and Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.) each contributed their second points of the night on the play, while netminder Dan Bakala (So., Calgary, Alberta) piled up 25 saves to improve to 2-0-1 on the season. Trailing the Wildcats 2-1 after 40 minutes of play, it was George’s powerplay goal at 3:18 in the third that sparked the Beavers’ come-from-behind win. Bemidji State began the third period on the man advantage for 4:01 and after a flurry of shots, the freshman potted his second goal of the season, with 1:17 remaining on the penalty (2-2). “I think it would have been mothballs if we would not have scored there,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore after the game. “That can really deflate you if you don’t score [on a five-minute major] when you are down 2-1 in the third period on the road.” The Beavers would go on to out shoot NMU 12-5 in the third, pulling Bakala with 1:06 left to set up the Kinne extra-attacker, equalizer 56-seconds later. “Northern Michigan is a good team boy,” commented Serratore. “There is no question there were times that we were a little flat-footed, but over all I thought it was a great tie...a terrific night. I am very proud of the guys. I thought they played with a lot of heart and a lot of want-to in the third period.” The Wildcats struck first catching the Beavers while they shook off the rust after the week off. Billy Smith pushed his first goal of the season past Bakala on a pass from Mark Oliver just 1:30 into the game. But the goal would serve as a wake up call to BSU. Captain Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) forced a turnover just over a minute later and Jamie MacQueen (So., St. Thomas, Ontario) flipped a backhand over the shoulder of Stewart for the first lamplighter of his sophomore season to knot the score at 1-1 (2:49). Stuck killing eight minutes worth of penalties in the seconds period, the Beavers were simply never able to generate any offense. Northern Michigan held a 12-3 advantage in shots on goal in the period and took advantage of a penalty to MacQueen to get a goal from Ray Kaunisto at the six-minute mark to give the hosts a 2-1 lead heading into the third period. BSU would battle back to tie the game twice in the final stanza on goals from George and Kinne. Despite peppering the Wildcat goaltender in the third period, the Beavers were out shot for the first time this season, 28-26. On an Olympic ice sheet, like the Berry Events Center, special teams can often be the difference in the game, but tonight, both teams were whistled for six penalties and each converted one power-play opportunity to finish 1-for-6. With a goal and an assist on the night, George registered the first multipoint game of his young collegiate career. Hunt, turned in his sixth multiassist effort in the first 40 games of his career to move into a three-way tie for the team lead with three assists.

MARQUETTE, Mich. (Berry Events Center) -- Mathieu Dugas (Fr., G, L’Assomption, Quebec) turned away 13 shots to shut out Northern Michigan University in his collegiate debut and help the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team to a 5-0 victory over the Wildcats Saturday at the Berry Events Center. The Beavers turned in one of their more impressive performances in recent memory. BSU scored goals on its first two shots on net to take a 2-0 lead into the first intermission and then clamped down defensively allowing just 13 shots on goal in the game en route to the five-goal non-conference victory. “This was a great effort. I am very proud of the way we played,” commented Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore following the game. “You look back, over the course of the last ten years in Division I, at some of our most gratifying wins and this ranks right up there. This is not an easy place to play. Its tough to get one point out of Marquette, let alone three.” Serratore went on to say, “It’s how we did it. We were stingy defensively and our guys played with a ton of jam. I am very proud of our guys.” Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) got the scoring started with a shorthanded goal at 3:19 of the first period. Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.) was credited with assists on the eventual game-wining goal-the first of McKelvie’s career. Eight minutes later, Lehrke would put the Beavers up 2-0 when he onetimed a shot just under the blocker of the Wildcat’s goaltender, Brian Stewart, with help from Brady Wacker (Fr., D, Jensen, Saskatchewan) and Chris Peluso (Sr., D, Wadena, Minn.). Up 2-0 entering the second period, it didn’t take the Beavers long to add their lead. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) followed shots by Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) and Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) to shove the third rebound past Stewart. The goal put BSU up 3-0 after 40 minutes of play. BSU saved its best for last. The Beavers dominated play during the final 20 minutes. They out shot the Wildcats 12-3 and scored a pair of goals before the game’s final horn to cruise to the 5-0 win. Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) chipped a rebound, from a Hunt shot, past the NMU goaltender for his second goal of the season at the 8:24 mark. The goal drew the curtain on Stewart’s night after allowing four goals on 20 shots. Read collected his second assist of the game on the play. McKelvie bookended BSU’s scoring at the 12:07 mark. He stepping in front of a pass and used his speed to flat out beat the NMU defense down the ice before flipping a backhand into the back of the net. Credited with the win in his first appearance in the green and white, Dugas became just the third BSU goaltender to post a shutout in his collegiate debut. He finds himself in pretty good company joining Beaver greats Jim Scanlan (1978-82) and Matt Climie (2004-08) on the exclusive list. “This was great for Mathieu,” said Serratore. “We’ve got a lot of inexperience this year but I think we’ve had some great goaltending. Danny Bakala has been outstanding and Mathieu played great today.” Serratore added, “I thought he was very poised in the net.”

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Von Braun Center) -- It may not have been pretty and it may have taken extra time to finally settle it, but a win is a win in the season standings and tonight the No. 14 Bemidji State men’s ice hockey team found a way to protect its unblemished record and open the 2009-10 College Hockey America season with a 2-1 victory over the University of Alabama-Huntsville at the Von Braun Center. Junior Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ont.) added to his team lead in scoring providing all of the offense for the Beavers, bookending the game with a pair of goals--his second multi-goal night of the young season. Read and the nation’s top-scoring offense wasted little time before getting on the board, but a funneled puck that found its way to the back of the net on the Beavers’ first power-play opportunity of the night was all BSU could muster in regulation. A second period plagued with penalties made it tough for either team to generate any kind of offensive momentum as the Chargers were whistled for five penalties and the Beavers were pegged for four. Ala.-Huntsville out shot the Beavers 13-8 in the period, en route to a 30-22 advantage in the game, but BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (So., Calgary, Alberta) was sharp between the pipes keeping UAH off the scoreboard. After playing a good portion of the second frame with their special teams units on the ice, the teams began to find flow in the third as not a single penalty was called. The Chargers were the first to benefit from consistent five-on-fine play when Neil Ruffini knotted the game with his third goal of the season on a pass from Brennan Barker at the 3:44 mark of the period. After struggling to impose its normal pace and style of play for the 60 minutes of regulation, the Beavers dominated the overtime period from the opening face off. BSU out shoot UAH 3-0 with the final attempt by Read standing as the difference maker. Ryan Adams (Jr., D, Deloraine, Manitoba) started the play in transition hitting Read who broke the seam between a pair of defensemen caught in a change and skated into the slot, hesitated to the right enough to get UAH goaltender Cameron Talbot off balance and bounced the puck off his leg to give the Beavers the victory. “It was kind of ugly but we won’t apologize for it.,” commented Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore. “You’ve got to win games like this and I am glad we found a way to win, but we’ve got to be better than this.” After scoring on its first shot on the man advantage, BSU failed to score on its next six chances to finish the game 1-for-7. The Chargers also struggled on the power play finishing 0-for-6. Bakala picked up his third collegiate win stopping a career-high 29 shots, while allowing just one goal, in 63:44 of action. He improved to 3-0-1 on the season. Talbot was tagged with the loss allowing two goals in 63:34. He made 20 saves in the game but fell to 3-4-0.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Von Braun Center) --It was Déja Vu all over again. For the second straight game, Bemidji State University and University of Alabama-Huntsville found themselves locked in a 1-1 tie after 60 minutes of play. And just as they had 18 hours earlier, the Beavers found the back of the net in overtime to gain a 2-1 victory and completed the College Hockey America sweep over the Chargers Sunday at Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Ala. This time Ben Kinne (So., F, St. Paul, Minn.) played the role of the hero. The sophomore picked up a UAH turnover on his own blue line, sliced through the Chargers’ defense and fired a slap shot over Cameron Talbot’s shoulder to clinch the game for BSU just 61 seconds into the extra frame. The overtime victory keeps the Beavers’ six-game unbeaten streak in tact at 5-0-1. In addition to sharing the nation’s longest unbeaten streak with Alaska (5-0-1), BSU is off to its best start since the team went 11-0-0 to open the 1984-85 campaign. Despite the absence of goals during the opening 40 minutes of play, there was no lack of scoring opportunities. The Chargers held a 12-9 lead in shots after the first period and a 24-19 advantage after two, but the goaltenders were sharp and their stingy play set up a third-period battle for two points in the College Hockey America standings. Kevin Morrison scored his second goal of the season to put the Chargers up 1-0 just 1:31 into the final 20-minute stanza with help from Cody Campbell and Andrew Coburn. The goal put Bemidji State on its heels and left the visitors just 18:29 from a series split and their first loss of 2009-10. But just as he has all season Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) came through in the clutch. The junior recorded his third goal of the weekend at the 9:29 mark, picked off a UAH pass on the fore check, skated to the net, beat Talbot with a hesitation move and delivered the unassisted equalizer. Each team went on the power-play one last time in the game’s final 10 minutes, but the goalies proved to be impenetrable and for the second time in an many contests and the third time in four games, the Beavers were headed to overtime. BSU began the five-minute, sudden death period on the man advantage for the first 40 seconds, but it was UAH that got the best scoring chance, short-handed, forcing Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) to make his career-high 31st save to keep the Beavers’ hopes alive. Just seconds later, a turnover in BSU’s defensive end would spark a Bemidji State rush and Kinne lifted the puck past Talbot to seal the win. A total of eight penalties were called in the game, but special teams were a non-factor as BSU failed to score on three power-play opportunities, while UAH came up empty on five tries. Bakala’s fourth career victory extends his personal unbeaten streak to five games, 4-0-1, and accounted for BSU’s fifth win. He finished the weekend 2-0-0 with 60 saves and just two goals allowed in 124:45 between the pipes. Talbot made 20 saves Sunday, but took the loss and falls to 3-5-0 on the season. The Beavers have now needed extra time to decide their fate in three of their first six games and remain unbeaten in overtime this season posting a 2-0-1 record.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- The No. 12 Bemidji State men’s Ice hockey team continues to find ways to win. After simply out scoring their opponents in the opening weeks of 200910, it was the Beavers’ defense that gave them the edge Saturday at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. Sophomore goaltender Dan Bakala (Calgary, Alberta) turned away 23 shots en route to a 2-0 College Hockey America victory over Robert Morris University. The shutout was the first of the sophomore’s collegiate career, the second of the season for BSU and helped the Beavers improve to 6-0-1, the team’s best stretch to open a season since it went 11-0-0 in 1984-85. Goals were not easy to come by during the first two periods of action. Despite holding a 26-17 advantage in shots through 40 minutes, the Beavers were unable to solve Brooks Ostergard and it may have been the Colonials that had the best scoring opportunity. Thirteen minutes into the second period, Bakala moved to the right post to make a save, but was unable to corral the loose puck leaving the net wide open for J.C. Velasquez. Just as the winger fired the shot, BSU defender Brady Wacker (Fr., Jansen, Saskatchewan) dove across the crease and deflect the shot wide to preserve the scoreless tie. The Beavers took the first lead of the contest 8:23 into the final period. Jake Areshenko (Fr., D, Port Cocquitilan, British Columbia) recorded his first point in a BSU sweater starting the play with a pass out of the corner and up the boards to fellow rookie Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.). The forward then threaded a pass to Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) just inside the Beavers’ offensive zone and Read fired a shot over the left shoulder of Ostergard and into the back of the net. The goal, which would stand as the difference maker, is the junior’s team-leading third game-winning goal of the season. With 43 seconds to play, RMU head coach Derek Schooley pulled Ostergard in favor of the extra attacker, but the plan would backfire. BSU blueliner Chris Peluso (Sr., D, Wadena, Minn.) picked off a pass and the duo of George and Read would hook up again with 23 seconds left on the clock to solidify the win, 2-0. It was George’s third goal of the season. The power-play was a non-factor in the game as the Beavers were 0-for-3 on the man advantage and RMU was scoreless on four chances and managed just two shots on net on the power-play. Bakala improves to 5-0-1 on the season with the win and is 3-0-0 in CHA play. In his last three outings, he has posted three victories, allowed a goals against average of 0.65 and has a save percentage of .976. Ostergard finished with 37 saves, allowed one goal and was tagged with the loss, dropping his season record to 1-4-0.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- The nationally-ranked Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team swept College Hockey America foe Robert Morris University Saturday at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse, 6-1, enlisting scoring help from 13 different skaters. The victory brings the Beavers’ record to 7-0-1 overall and 4-0-0 in CHA play, while it extends their NCAA Division I-leading unbeaten streak to eight games. Undefeated through its first eight games, BSU is off to its best start since the 1984-85 squad opened the season 11-0-0. For the seventh time in eight games, the Beavers were first to light their side of the scoreboard and once head coach Tom Serratore and his crew got the ball rolling, they didn’t look back. Darcy Findlay (So., F, Bristol, Quebec) opened the scoring, netting his first goal of the season 8:46 into the first period. Emil Billberg (Jr., Stockholm, Sweden) and Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia), who each posted multi-point nights, were each credited with an assist on the play. While the multi-point night was the first of Billberg’ career, Hunt’s three-assist outing is the third of the season and the 12th of his career. Bemidji State built a 3-0 lead midway through the second when Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.) and Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) potted goals separated by 1:48. RMU got an odd goal to break up the shutout before time would expire on the second period. A Denny Urban shot touched both posts and after a conference by the crew of officials, the Colonials were credited with a powerplay goal and the teams skated to the third period with the Beavers ahead 3-1. The power-play marker was the first allowed by the Beavers in CHA play this season, snuffing out their opponents’ first 15 man-advantage opportunities. The floodgates opened for BSU during the final 20 minutes. Already up by two goals, the Beavers added three more in the final stanza to win the game going away. Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) put an end to the Beavers’ power-play slump netting his team-leading seventh goal of 2009-10 just 45-seconds into the third. The goal extended the junior’s scoring streak to five games and stood as his second point of the night and 22nd multi-point effort of his career. Down 4-1, just 1:36 into the third, Robert Morris was supplied with its best opportunity of the night. BSU forward Jamie MacQueen (So., St. Thomas, Ontario) was whistled for a five-minute, high-sticking penalty setting up with a five-minute RMU power-play opportunity, but the BSU penalty-kill unit stood strong keeping the Colonial scoring opportunities to a minimum to protected the three-goal lead. Rookie Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.) potted his second goal in as many nights to put BSU up 5-1 with 2:39 to play. Ryan Adams (Jr., F, Deloraine, Manitoba) started the play with a pass out the boards to Aaron McLeod (Fr., F, Ottawa, Ontario), who found George on the left post. Billberg netted his first goal of the season 50-seconds later to give the Beavers a five-goal lead, 6-1. Each team was successful on 1-of-5 power-play opportunities, while the Beavers out shot the Colonials 40-28, which included a 17-shot first period for BSU. Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) turned away 27 RMU shots in 59:44 of action, picking up the win to improve to 6-0-1 on the season.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (Mariucci Arena) -- The No. 7 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey program felt the sting of defeat for the first time of the 2009-10 season Saturday as the University of Minnesota, buoyed strong special teams play, handed the Beavers a 4-1 non-conference loss at Mariucci Arena. “Overall I thought it was a pretty good hockey game,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “Did we put 60 minutes together? Obviously not.” As always, special teams play was the difference. The Beavers were whistled for eight penalties and allowed a pair of power-play goals while failing to convert any of their four man advantage opportunities. “[Minnesota] won the special teams battles tonight and typically the team that wins the special teams battles wins the games.” The Beavers were the first to strike. Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) picked up a loose puck just inside the Beavers’ offensive zone, skated onto the doorstep alone and beat the Minnesota goaltender Alex Kangas one-onone with a flip over his left shoulder just 2:03 into the game. But the lead would not last long. After BSU netminder, Dan Bakala (So., Calgary, Alberta) denied the Golden Gophers on two point-blank shots, Nico Sacchetti found the puck unattended sitting on the goal line and put his first goal of the season in the back of the net to knot the game at 1-1. The Beavers’ water-tight penalty-kill unit was put the test early in the second. At the 3:52 mark of the period, Chris Peluso (Sr., D, Wadena, Minn.) was sent to the penalty box to join Emil Billberg (Jr., F. Stockholm, Sweden), who was just 46 seconds into his penalty, giving the Golden Gophers a fiveon-three advantage for 1:14. Minnesota would capitalize 45 seconds into the power-play with a Mike Hoeffel goal. Then its was Bemidji State’s turn. Four Minnesota infractions win the span of 57 seconds gave the Beavers 2:27 of five-on-three play midway though the second stanza. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) got the BSU faithful out of their seats in a hurry when a wrister that rang of the right post slid along the goal line and through the crease, but that was all the Beavers would muster. BSU put six shots on goal, but Kangas stood strong and with every save, momentum grew for the Gophers. Although BSU had its chances in the final 30 minutes of play, it would never recover. The Gophers took a 2-1 lead into the second intermission and piled on two goals in the third to move to 4-4-1 on the season. Minnesota used the win to continue its dominance in a series that got its start early in the 2000-01 season. Seven times the Beavers have gone head-to-head with the Gophers and seven times BSU has come up short. Bemidji State finished the game 0-4 on the power-play while the Beavers’ penalty-kill unit allowed two goals for the first time since Mar. 7, 2009-a streak spanning 12 games. Bakala took the loss, allowing all four Minnesota goals, while piling up 25 saves in 60 minutes of work. He moves to 6-1-0 following his first collegiate loss. Kangas turned away 21 BSU shots on goal and allowed just one goal improving to 4-3-0 with the victory.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (Mariucci Arena) -- It was bound to happen. Minnesota could not hold off Bemidji State forever and tonight, the Beavers’ had their number called. After dropping the first six meetings of the all-time series, including game one of the series 4-1, seventh-ranked BSU secured its first victory over the Golden Gophers, 6-2, to leave Mariucci Arena with a series split. “It’s a monumental win. [Minnesota] is one of the premier teams in the country and obviously Minnesota’s Pride on Ice,” commented BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “Anytime you can win a game in this building you take it. Mariucci Arena is a very difficult place to play. I am very proud of our guys.” When asked what the difference was between the play of the Beavers in tonight’s win and the loss last night, Serratore ironically attributed the team’s offensive explosion to its defense. “I thought the biggest thing we did tonight was that we defended extremely well. I thought we took the middle of the rink away and I think that led to a lot of our success.” For one reason or another, the Beavers have been better in the second game of a series this season coming in to the weekend averaging five goals per game--two and a half more per outing than in series openers. BSU hit the mark again tonight, surpassing its average as nine players found the scoring column and sophomore Jamie MacQueen posted the first two-goal night of his career. Shea Walters got BSU on the board first when he picked off a pass on the Golden Gophers’ blue line, split the Minnesota defensive pair and placed a shot over the left shoulder of the Gophers’ goaltender Alex Kangas and into the back of the net. The unassisted goal at the 8:02 mark of the first period was the first of the season for Walters. The Beavers extended their lead to 2-0 at the 19:20 mark of the first. Matt Read fired a shot from the top of the circle that found its way through traffic past Kangas for his team-leading eight goal of the season. Jordan George assisted on the play. Despite being out shot 10-4 in the period, the Beavers skated to the locker room holding a 2-0 lead. With Kent Patterson replacing Kangas between the pipes to begin the second period, Minnesota cut the BSU lead to one goal at the 9:19 mark capitalizing on its third power-play opportunity of the game. Jordan Schroeder posted his second goal in as many nights one-timing a shot from the point that squeezed between BSU goaltender Mathieu Dugas and the right post. The goal put the Beavers on their heels as wave after wave of Golden Gopher scoring opportunities rolled in on the BSU goalie over the course of the next five minutes, but Dugas and the Beavers weathered the storm. Bemidji State caught the break it needed at the 6:10 mark of the period, when a major penalty was assessed to the Golden Gophers’ Zach Budish for checking from behind. The infraction put BSU on the man advantage for the next five minutes and set up the team’s third goal of the game--the eventual game-winner. MacQueen was credited with BSU’s first power-play goal of the series. Up 3-1 with 20 minutes to play, the Beavers opened the third period with a flurry. Brad Hunt, MacQueen and Aaron McLeod each scored during the first 3:04 of the final frame forcing Minnesota head coach Don Lucia to rotate the veteran Kangas back between the pipes. Patterson’s night came to an end after allowing four goals in 23:04, while posting just six saves and fell to 2-1-0 on the season. The Gophers closed the deficit to four, 6-2, midway through the third when Jake Hansen redirected a Kevin Wehrs’s shot from the top of the crease, but it was too little, too late as the Beavers cruised to the non-conference victory. Dugas sealed his second collegiate victory of the season stopping 25 Minnesota shots, while allowing two goals, in 59:42. He improves to 2-0-0 in his career.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- The No. 8 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team extended its home winning steak to eight games and remained undefeated after five games in College Hockey America play Saturday with a 6-1 series-opening victory over the University of Alabama-Huntsville. Eleven BSU players contributed scoring in the rout, but freshman Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) paced all Beavers posting his first collegiate three-point game, netting a goal and tacking on a pair of assists. Bemidji State jumped out to a commanding lead early, potting three goals in just 3:21 midway through the first frame. BSU’s leading scorer Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) got the ball rolling recording his team-best ninth goal of the season with help from George and Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) at the 13:21 mark. Forty-six seconds later, Ryan Cramer (Jr., International Falls, Minn.) buried his fourth goal of the season, the eventual game-winner, to put BSU up 2-0. Before the period was over, George found the back of the net with his six lamplighter of 2009-10 as Cramer and Read collected assists to send the Beavers to the locker room with a three-goal cushion. In a penalty-littered second period, it was the Chargers that capitalized on a BSU miscue to cut the BSU advantage to two goals when Brennan Barker scored UAH’s only power-play goal. The tally would come at the 13:16 mark of the period and account for all the scoring as UAH out shot BSU 14-8 in the frame. The Beavers would sandwich the Chargers’ second period marker between three-goal periods as the team exploded for three more goals in the third, including a power-play tally, to put the game out of reach and power through to their ninth win of the season (9-1-1). Lowe, Jamie MacQueen (So., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) and captain Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) accounted for BSU goals during the final 20 minutes. MacQueen’s power-play marker helped the Beavers to go 1-for-9 on the man advantage, while UAH scored on just one of its eight power-play opportunities. From there it was all Dan Bakala (Calgary, Alberta) and BSU’s staunch defense. The sophomore goaltender posted 25 saves, which included 13 in the final period alone, while allowing just one goal in 59:56 between the pipes to improve his record to 7-1-1 overall and 5-0-0 in league play. In addition, the Beavers knocked down 19 shots in front of the netminder holding the Chargers to just 26 shots on net. BSU finished the contest with the slightest of leads on the shot board, 27-26. Cameron Talbot played 44:51 and allowed five BSU goals before being replaced by Blake MacNicol in the third period. The duo combined to save 21 shots with Talbot posting 17 in the loss. He falls to 3-8-0 on the season. The victory was the ninth consecutive versus Ala.-Huntsville and helps the Beavers to improve to 33-27-3 lead in the all-time series.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) scored three goals and added an assist to lead the No. 8 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team to a 6-3 victory over the University of Alabama-Huntsville Saturday in College Hockey America (CHA) play at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. Hunt’s hat trick led an offensive surge by the BSU blue line as the Beavers’ defensive unit accounted for four goals and an assist in the win, while it stands as the first three-goal effort by a Beaver defenseman since Mar. 13, 2004 when John Haider scored three. Bemidji State looked sluggish out of the gates and its tentative play put the team in a hole early. Whistled for four penalties during the first 10 minutes, the Beavers gave Ala.-Huntsville a full 2:00 5-on-3 when Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) and Ian Lowe (Jr., F. Bradwardine, Manitoba) went to the box at the 8:03 mark. The Chargers took a 1-0 lead just 26 seconds into the twoman advantage when Andrew Coburn put a rebound past Mathieu Dugas (L’Assomtion, Quebec). The goal would essentially serve as a wake up call for the Beavers. Ryan Adams (Jr., D, Brandon, Manitoba) evened the score with his first goal of 2009-10 firing a bullet from the right face off dot at the 15:27 mark. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) and Shea Walters (So., F, Hibbing, Minn.) were each credited with assists on the play. Less than two minutes later, Hunt would give the Beavers the lead, 2-1, on a slap shot from the point that found its way through traffic on the power-play. BSU would see its lead swell to 3-1 just 2:03 into the second period when Hunt netted his second marker of the game. But the two-goal cushion would last only 1:50 before Kevin Morrison posted his fourth goal of the season to reel the Chargers to within a goal, 3-2. But when Cramer and Read combined to post a pair of goals in just 20 seconds, BSU would not look back. UAH’s Cale Tanka netted a goal in the final minutes of the second, but Hunt would complete the hat trick with his second power-play goal of the evening just 3:16 into the third period to seemingly put the game out of reach. Despite holding a three-goal lead well into the third period, the Beavers left the door open for a Charger comeback. Darcy Findlay (So., F, Bristol, Quebec) was tagged with a major penalty that set UAH up with a 5:00 powerplay. But the BSU penalty-kill rose to the occasion killing the entire penalty and slamming the door on the Chargers. The victory was the 10th consecutive versus Ala.-Huntsville and helped the Beavers to improve to 34-27-3 lead in the all-time series. Dugas collected his third win in as many collegiate starts Saturday posting a career-high 28 saves, while allowing three UAH goals in 60:00 minutes of action. He is now 3-0-0 on the season. The Chargers tried both goaltenders during the course of the game, but neither was able to solve the Beavers offensive attack. Blake MacNicol allowed three goals in 22:03 and made six saves before being replaced with Cameron Talbot. Talbot turned away 15 shots, but allowed three goals in the final 38 minutes and fell to 3-9-0 with the loss. The Beavers’ special teams unit seemed to be firing on all cylinders Saturday as Hunt scored a pair of power-play tallies on four BSU opportunities (.500). The penalty-kill unit finished by snuffing out seven of the Chargers’ eight power-play chances (.875).

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Ralph Engelstad Arena) -- They’ve done it again. The 2009-10 edition of the No. 6 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team added yet another chapter to one of the most tradition-rich legacies in all of collegiate sport. The Beavers skated out of the Ralph Engelstad Arena with a 3-2 victory over No. 1 Miami University in the first game of the Subway Holiday Classic. The win versus the nation’s top-ranked RedHawks marked the first time BSU has knocked off NCAA Division I’s top team. With the score knotted at 2-2 after 56:41, senior captain Chris McKelvie followed Matt Read into the zone as a trailer, collected a rebound from the leg of Miami goaltender Cody Reichard and fired it into the back to account for the difference maker as he was being hauled to the ice by a RedHawk defender. The Beavers would protect the lead for the remaining 3:19 to post their 11th victory of the season. “There aren’t many guys in college hockey faster than Chris McKelvie,” BSU head coach Tom Serratore commented after the game. “Chris sensed it, he saw it and he went. When you beat people to pucks, good things happen.” “All week we’ve been talking that this is the No. 1 team in the nation and we had to have our best game to show the nation that we are for real,” said Read. “It took 60 minutes but we had some play back to deal with tonight. I thought we played a good game and ended up on top.” The first period panned out just as you would imagine of a game between the nation’s top two defenses. A grand total of nine shots made it to the goaltenders. Despite recording just two shots on goal during the period and trailing 7-2, the Beavers held a 1-0 lead over the RedHawks after 20 minutes. The Beavers captured their first lead at the 8:37 mark when Darcy Findlay stuck with a play and muscled a shot on goal despite being partially blocked. The puck bounced up and over the right shoulder of Reichard. Findlay’s second goal of the season was assisted by freshman Aaron McLeod. Bemidji State went up 2-0 6:02 into the second. Tyler Lehrke corralled a rebound off McKelvie’s shot and buried his third goal of the season. The tally put the RedHawks down two goals for the third time this season and the first time since they were defeated by Michigan State University Oct. 24, 3-2 in overtime. The Beavers spent the much of the remainder of the period pinned deep within their defensive zone. The RedHawks piled up a 10-6 advantage on the shot board, but came up empty as Dan Bakala slammed the door on the Miami barrage to preserve the two-goal lead heading into the final 20 minutes of play. The RedHawks battled back to score the game’s first power-play marker taking advantage of a Dan MacIntyre interference call at the 14:13 mark. MU capitalized on the man advantage one minute, 11 seconds later (15:24) getting a Camper goal from the point. Just under three minutes later, MU got a second goal from Camper to knot the game at 2-2 and erase their largest deficit of the season. But with 3:19 to play, McKelvie was in the right place at the right time, netting his fifth goal of the season on the rebound. Miami won the special teams battle going 1-for-3 on the man advantage, while BSU failed so score on any of its four power-play opportunities. Bakala finished the night with 20 saves, including 10 in the second period alone to post his eighth victory of the season.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Ralph Engelstad Arena) -- Twenty-four hours removed from knocking off the nation’s top-ranked team, Miami University (Ohio) 3-2, the No. 6 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team stumbled dropping a 2-1 nonconference match up to the Ohio State University in overtime. The Beavers wrapped up play at the Subway Holiday Classic at Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D. with a 1-1 record. For the tenth time in 14 games of 2009-10, BSU was first to light the scoreboard, but tonight, different than any of the previous nine occasions, the Beavers were not on the winning end when all was said and done. Ohio State battled back to tie the game in the second period and got an even-strength goal from Kyle Read, 48 seconds into overtime just seconds after a Buckeye power-play had expired to hand the Beavers their second loss of the season. Bemidji State’s fourth line accounted for all of its scoring on the night. Aaron McLeod (Fr., F, Ottawa, Ontario) netted his third goal of the season and second point of the of the weekend beating the Buckeyes’ Cal Heeter at the 17:29 mark of the first period. He was assisted on the play by Darcy Findlay (So., F, Bristol, Quebec) and Ryan Adams (Jr., D, Deloraine, Manitoba) who also each recorded their second points of the classic. Trailing 1-0 after the first period, OSU evened the score, 1-1, with just 2:21 left in the second period. Ian Boots accounted for the goal, his first of the season, with help from Devon Krogh and Sean Duddy. A scoreless third period in which each team put eight shots on net, sent the Beavers to an extra frame for the fourth time of the season. Playing the first 45 seconds of overtime on the power-play, OSU peppered Dugas with three shots in 48 seconds. The last, off the stick of the Buckeyes’ Read found the back of the net. Mathieu Dugas (Fr., G, L’Assomtion, Quebec), in his fourth start as a Beaver, played 60:48 between the pipes recording 20 saves and allowing two goals in his first collegiate loss. He moves to 3-1-0 on the season. Heeter improved to 5-2-1 in 2009-10 with the win. He turned away 25 of BSU’s 26 shots on goal and allowed just one tally in 60:41. Ohio State opens its series with BSU taking a 1-0-0 with a win. BSU falls to 2-1-1 versus teams hailing from the CCHA in 2009-10. The Beavers (11-2-1; 6-0-0 CHA) return to the John S. Glas Fieldhouse for a College Hockey America (CHA) match up with Niagara University (2-82; 1-1-1 CHA) next weekend (Dec. 4-5). The Beavers open the series with the Purple Eagles at 7:35 p.m. Friday and will play the second half of the two-game set Saturday at 7:05 p.m.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- Fourteen of Bemidji State University’s 18 skaters factored into the scoring as the No. 4/5 Beavers routed Niagara University 8-2 tonight in College Hockey America competition at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. After taking a 1-0 led late in the first period, the Beavers netted three goals in the second to take a commanding 4-1 lead heading into the final 20 minutes of play and piled on a season-high four tallies in the third, which included a short-handed goal and three power-play markers, to cruise to the 8-2 victory. Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) led the Beavers with a pair of goals, while Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.), Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario), Dan MacIntyre (Jr., D, Fort Frances, Ontario), Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) and Shea Walters (So., F, Hibbing, Minn.) each netted multiple points as the Beaver offense accounted for its highest output of the 2009-10 campaign and scored eight for the first time since it posted an eight spot on the Purple Eagles Dec. 3, 2005. BSU looked a bit sluggish out of the gates, but regrouped to take over in the final eight minutes of the first period out shooting NU 12-6 in the frame and got a goal from Lowe at the 17:49 mark with help from his linemates Read and George to put BSU up 1-0 at the first intermission. Despite being out shot 14-9 in the second, allowing Niagara to tie the game on a Ryan Olidis goal just 3:43 into the period and playing the frame without a power-play opportunity, the Beavers potted three goals to head into the final 20 minutes of play up 4-1. Lowe posted his first collegiate multi-goal contest lighting the lamp for the sixth time this season, before Cramer netted the eventual game-winner and Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.) stuffed a Jamie MacQueen (So., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) rebound past the Niagara goaltender Adam Avramenko for his fourth goal of the season. BSU dominated play in the third. Read got the period started on a tremendous individual effort, short-handed goal. His team-leading 11th goal of the season came after he blocked a NU shot, beat two defenders to the slot, fired a shot of the right leg of Avramenko and pounded his own rebound past the goalie on his way past the right post while he was being hauled down by a Purple Eagle blueliner. Niagara scored its lone power-play goal, on six chances, at the 7:03 mark cutting the BSU lead to 5-2, but a trio of unanswered power-play goals for the Beavers during the final 10 minutes of play put the game out of reach for the Purple Eagles. NU’s Avramenko turned away 31 BSU shots in 59:43 between the pipes but was credited with the setback after allowing all eight of BSU goals. He falls to 2-3-2 on the season. Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) improves to 9-1-1 overall, allowing two goals in a 27-save preference in the net for BSU. After skating through the last two games without a power-play goal, BSU piled up a season-high three tonight on just five chances, while adding a four special team’s goals on the Read shortie. The victory was the Beavers’ fourth straight over Niagara and helped BSU to improve to 18-20-8 in the all-time series.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team completed a series sweep over Niagara University Saturday at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse, holding off the Purple Eagles’ late charge to take a 3-2 College Hockey America victory. Senior captain Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) led the way for the Beavers posting a goal and an assist. After a scoreless first period, McKelvie gave the Beavers a 1-0 lead just 1:53 into the second frame. The senior used his blazing speed to pick off a NU pass, beat the Purple Eagle defenders and stuff the puck past Chris Noonan for his six goal of the season. Ten minutes later, the Beavers would double their lead to 2-0 when Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.) left the puck on the door step for Ben Kinne (So., St. Paul, Minn.), who backhanded the puck into the Purple Eagles’ net for the Beavers’ only power-play marker of the contest. Bemidji State came into the game with a perfect 10-0-0 record in games in which it has taken a lead into the third period this season. Despite a bit of excitement late, BSU stayed perfect holding off NU to take the conference game 3-2. Giancarlo Iuorio cut the BSU lead in half, 2-1, 2:44 into the third period scoring an even-strength goal from Brendan Sheehan. But Jamie MacQueen (So., St. Thomas, Ontario) would give the Beavers a two-goal cushion, netting what would eventually stand as the game-winning goal, at the 16:15 mark. Linemates Lehrke and McKelvie each collected their second points of the night adding assists on the play. Down 3-1, NU head coach Dave Burkholder elected to pull his goaltender in the game’s final minutes for an extra attacker. The decision would pay off as Ryan Olidis potted his ninth goal of the season with just 43 seconds remaining in regulation, reeling the Beavers to within a goal, 3-2, but were unable to make up any additional ground and the Beavers skated away with the one-goal victory to complete their first series sweep over Niagara at home since 2002. Out shot 31-22 in a game that the Beavers struggled to generate any offensive rhythm, special teams played a big role in BSU’s win. The Beavers converted one of their three man advantage opportunities, while the team’s penalty-kill unit was flawless snuffing out all five of the Purple Eagles’ powerplay opportunities. Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) became the first goaltender in the country rack up 10 wins in 2009-10, turning away 29 NU shots to post his fourth consecutive victory. He used the win to improve to 10-1-1. Noonan was pinned with the loss and falls to 0-4-0 this season. He stopped 19 shots but allowed all three of the Beavers’ goals. The victory was BSU’s fifth straight versus Niagara and helped the team to come within a game of evening the all-time series, 19-20-8.
