Player to Watch Freshman forward Jordan George has posted his share of success in his short history with the Colonials. In four games, the rookie has 5-2=7 points. Only Matt Read has more career goals versus RMU (7), but he’s also logged nine more games versus Robert Morris. George also enters the series having posted 5-4=9 points, including a game-winner, in the last five games in which he has skated.

The Match up

The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team looks to close the book on their third consecutive College Hockey America regular-season championship this weekend in Pittsburgh, Pa. Entering the weekend series with Robert Morris University toting a 10-2-0 record and 20 points in league play, a win over the Colonials and a loss by University of AlabamaHuntsville or a sweep over RMU will put the Peters Cup out of the reach of the rest of the league in the grasp of the Beavers. The series marks BSU’s final regular-season, league games versus Robert Morris and the teams last trip to “The Steel City” a members of the CHA. With the league disbanding at the conclusion of the 2009-10 season, the Colonials have plans to join Atlantic Hockey, along with Niagara University, while the Beavers will begin play in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) in the fall of 2010. The Beavers (18-6-2; 10-2-0 CHA) come into the weekend series after a week free of competition. In BSU’s last action, Jan. 29-30, it hosted the Colonials at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. The teams split the series as the Beavers took game one in convincing fashion, 5-1, behind a career-high four-point effort from Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba). Saturday, RMU returned the favor, handing Bemidji State its second CHA loss, 5-2. Robert Morris (8-14-5; 4-5-3 CHA) was also off last weekend, but squeezed in a make-up game with Niagara Wednesday, Feb. 3. NU’s Sam Goodwin scored with just 89 seconds to go to knot the game at 4-4 and send the teams to overtime before settling for a tie. The game was originally slated for Dec. 11, but was postponed due to inclement weather in New York. The Purple Eagles and Colonials

The Rivalry

The Bemidji State / Robert Morris rivalry dates back just five years to 2004-05 when RMU became a member of the CHA. BSU was victorious in the first meeting (1/14/05), 5-1, and would go on to pile up wins in seven of the first eight occasions the teams went head-to-head. BSU now owns a 17-9-2 all-time record versus the Colonials, which includes a 6-5-1 mark in Pittsburgh, Pa. The Beavers are 3-1-0 versus RMU this season and come into the series winners of five of the last six meetings with the Colonials, the most notable of which, was a 3-2 overtime thriller for the 2009 CHA Tournament title. The dramatic win served as a launching pad for the Beavers’ historic run to the Frozen Four.

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 961-464-84 (.665) in 1,509 games and has the highest all-time winning percentage of the 58 programs which currently comprise NCAA Division I ice hockey.

BSU caps 2008-09 at 20-16-1

Bemidji State wrapped up its 2008-09 CHA campaign, its 10th as a member of the NCAA Division I ranks, with a record of 12-5-1 to gain its fourth CHA regular-season title in the last six seasons. A pair of wins in the CHA Tournament and two more in the Midwest Regional guaranteed Tom Serratore and his gang it’s seventh consecutive season with a record of .500 or better as it finished at 20-16-1 overall--the team’s fourth 20-win season under Serratore.

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 2008-09 BSU scoring by class by its upper classmen...but not by much. The Juniors 38g 41a 79 pts seniors led the charge with 50-52=102 points, Sophomores 23g 50a 73 pts but it was the freshman that gave BSU a boost Freshmen 19g 31a 50 pts in scoring totalling 25-48=73 points to finSeniors 11g 23a 34 pts ish second. The class may be a year older -through 2/10/10 in 2009-10, but the trend remains the same. Now sophomores, the class sits second the team in scoring with 23-50=73 points, while the juniors lead with 38-41=79.

Keep ’em under two

In 2009-10 when BSU has allowed its opponents two-or-fewer goals per game, it is 14-1-1. Through 26 games, BSU currently sits third the nation in scoring defense, allowing a meager 2.15 goals per game, while giving up 2.16 in 12 CHA contest.

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 16-4-0 when scoring first and 2-2-1 when its opponent gets on the board first.

D-Men On the Scoreboards Bemidji State’s defensive corps recorded an assists in the series versus Robert Morris, giving BSU defensive players at least one point in 76 of the last 91 games. Averaging 2.25 points per game, the 2009-10 blueline corps is on pace for its most productive season since the 2003-04 defense pitched in a BSU Division I-era record 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 +57 and the Beavers are 286-1 when he scores a goal, which included a 12-2-0 mark during the 2008-09 campaign and a 11-1-0 mark this season.

We’re goin’ streakin’

Two BSU players enter the Robert Morris series looking to extend scoring streaks. Jordan George leads all BSU players having scored in the Beavers’ last four games, while Ryan Cramer has potted at least a point in BSU’s last three. Since Jan. 22, BSU’s last four games, George has four goals and three assists for an average of 1,75 points per game. Cramer has a point in each off the last three games and has a helper in BSU’s last two.

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 seven goals and a team-leading 19 assist to pace all BSU defenders and is fourth among the nation’s defenders, with 26 points (1.00 ppg). His 15 points (5-10=15) on the power play paces the team.

Running up the score

Bemidji State has managed to score three or more goals in six of its last seven outings, giving the Beavers a 3.62 goals per game average to enter the weekend-a figure that seats them sixth in the country. BSU has netted five or more goals nine times this season. That’s 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 44 games, the Beavers have posted a 32-9-3 record--that’s a winning at an 77-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 2004-05 squad when it squashed 192-of-221 opponent opportunities. In 2009-10, the team has allowed just 22 power-play goals on 135 opponent opportunities (.837), but has been downright stingy in CHA play. BSU has allowed just seven power-play goals in 68 opponent opportunities spread over 12 league games (.897). The Beavers have allowed just five power-play goal in their last eight games.

Put it in the books after two

In 2009-10, BSU is 15-0-0 when it has taken a lead into the third period. Since making the jump to NCAA Division I in 1999-2000, the Beavers are 134-9-12 when leading after two periods of play.

Read all about BSU’s scoring leaders

In 98 games and just over two seasons in a green and white uniform, junior Matt Read has piled up 99 points (38-61=99). Sitting seventh on the BSU Division I-era scoring list, he ranks fifth in assists (61) and seventh in goals scored (38). He needs just one point to become the seventh Beaver to crack 100 points in the Division I Era.

George finds rookie scoring Chart

Just 25 games into his freshman season, Jordan George has been a pleasant surprise for the Beavers. He’s settled into the top line and currently sits second on the team with 29 points (12g-17a). His 29 points rank him third among the NCAA’s top rookies.

Top of the line

The Beavers top line of Jordan George, Matt Read and Ian Lowe have accounted for 45-percent of BSU goals (42) and 36 percent of its total scoring (86 pts).

The hunt for the hat

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.

Help from the crease

Dan Bakala recorded his first collegiate assist in a 5-1 loss to Minnesota State Dec. 11. He became the first BSU goaltender to record a helper since Matt Dalton made a pass that led to a goal Mar. 13.

I’ll do it on my own, thank you

Through 26 games of the 2009-10 season, the Beavers have already posted 12 unassisted goals to set a new BSU Division I-era record, surpassing its 2001-02 mark of 11.

Climbing BSU’s Division I Assists list

Brad Hunt has accumulated 42 assists in a season and a half. He currently sits alone in 12th on BSU Division I-era assists list. He needs three assists to move past Peter Johnson for 11th.

Bak-stopping the Beavers

Dan Bakala enters this weekend’s series second in the nation with 15 wins, ranked fifth among all goaltenders with a .926 save percentage, a goals against average of 2.10, while backstopping a team that ranks third in scoring defense at 2.15 goals per game.

One man wrecking crew

In the 15 games junior Matt Read has played versus Robert Morris during his career at BSU, he has accumulated seven goals, four of which are game-winners, and 11 assists for 18 points. In addition he is +15.

Buzzer Beater

Sophomore Ben Kinne is quickly becoming the Beavers clutch performer when the game is on the line. Saturday’s game-tying goal with 1.8 seconds left in regulation was Kinne’s second “buzzer beater” of the season. The St. Paul, Minn. native also scored an extra attacker goal with 10 seconds left in the third to tie the Oct. 23 game at Western Michigan at 3-3 and send it to overtime.

What’s your 20?

Div. I-Era Records Penalties

The Beavers enter February with 18 wins. A sweep over RMU at the Island Sports Center would give the Beavers 20 wins for the fifth time under Tom Serratore and the 29th time in the program’s history.

onventional sports wisdom has long contended it is never wise to follow a legend. 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.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- Minnesota State University, Mankato handed the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team its first home loss of the 2009-10 season, using four power-play goals to defeat the No. 4 Beavers 5-1 Friday at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. With the score tied 1-1 6:40 into the third period, BSU’s Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) was whistled for a major penalty. The infraction set up a five-minute power-play opportunity for the visitors and they would make the Beavers pay. At the 8:40 mark Jerad Stewart would score the eventual game winner on the man advantage with help from Zach Harrison and Ben Youds, both of whom would end up with two helpers in the game. During the next 1:59, MSU would post two more power-play goals and Harrison would add another before the period was over to put the game out of reach for the Beavers. The Mavericks, who never trailed in the game, got a Tyler Thompson goal midway through the first period and held on to tote a 1-0 lead into the third. Bemidji State’s Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) scored the Beavers’ only goal of the night to even the score to 1-1, 4:11 into the frame. Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) and Dan Bakala (So., G, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) were credited with assists on the play. The point put an end to a five-game scoreless streak for Hunt, the Beavers’ top scoring defenseman, while it marked the first career helper for Bakala. The goal seemed to be the spark the Beavers needed. The team immediately began to pick up the pace, pepper the MSU goaltender with shots and fly around the rink challenging every pass with a hit. But that aggressive play cost the Beavers as Read was sent tot the box for elbowing. In a game played without a single penalty called during the first 40 minutes of play, penalties end up playing a significant role in the final outcome. The Beavers and Mavericks combined to go 5-for-8 on the man advantage in the third period, with MSU scoring on 4-of-5 chances, while be was 1-for-3 on the power-play. MSU’s Phil Cook posted his first collegiate win in the game, turning away 30 BSU shot attempts and allowing just one goal. He improves to 1-00 on the season. Bakala was tagged with his second loss of the season, snapping a four-game unbeaten streak. He allowed five goals and stopped 26 Maverick shots in 60:00 of play. His record moves to 10-2-1 on the season. The loss ended the Beavers’ hopes of a perfect home season after eight straight wins and stands as the first time BSU has lost on its home ice since Mar. 6, 2009--a streak spanning 11 games. MSU has now defeated the Beavers in the last five meetings between the teams and continues to close the gap in the all-time series. The Mavericks now trail BSU by 10 games, 44-34-13.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team was swept for the first time this season as Minnesota State University followed its 5-1 rout Friday by holding the Beavers off, 3-2, Saturday to gain its second win in as many nights at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. Trailing 3-1 with just under two minutes to go in the game, the Beavers pulled their goaltender in exchange for an extra attacker. The gamble looked like it might pay off as Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.) potted his seventh goal of the season to reel the Mavericks to with a goal with 63 seconds left, but that was all the Beavers could muster as they fell in back-to-back games for the first time since Jan. 17 and 23 of last season. BSU jumped out to a lead just 54 seconds into the game. Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) stepped off the bench for his first shift of the game and into a MSU passing lane. After picking off the pass, Read skated past the Maverick defensive pair and placed a shot over the right shoulder of the MSU goaltender and into the back of the net. Minnesota State’s Eriah Hayes evened the score at 1-1 at the 4:29 mark of the period. He took a pass from Kael Mouillierat and Kurt Davis and fired a slap shot that Mathieu Dugas (Fr., G, L’Assomption, Quebec), the BSU goaltender, couldn’t handle and it dribbled in for a goal. Just 10 seconds into the second period, the game would swing in favor of MSU. BSU’s top scoring defenseman, Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) was whistled for a checking from behind major penalty and was sent to the showers. The Mavericks took the lead just 35 seconds into the five-minute power-play opportunity on a Mouillierat tally. Minnesota State added to its lead in the third period. Michael Dorr converted a BSU turnover on the red line into the first goal of his career as he beat the BSU goaltender one-on-one. Dorr is the brother of Frannie Door, a senior forward on the BSU women’s ice hockey team. In the final minutes the Beavers would mount a comeback but would fall short, 3-2. BSU failed to score on five power-play opportunities on the night, while MSU converted one of three chances into a goal. The Beavers kept Austin Lee busy tonight out shooting MSU 31-14. Lee made 29 saves and allowed to goals in 60:00 minutes between the pipes. He improves to 7-5-0 on the season. Dugas takes his second loss of the season, falling to 3-2-0 after posting 11 saves and allowing all three Maverick goals. The loss marks the sixth straight to MSU matching a losing skid that stretched from Dec. 20, 1996 to Dec. 17, 2000 and stands as the longest streak without a win over the Mavericks since the series began in 1974. MSU still trails BSU 44-35-13 in the all-time series.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- (Lawson Ice Arena) -- For the first time in 54 years of storied collegiate hockey history at Bemidji State University, the Beavers skated to a 0-0 tie. Saturday the Beavers failed to score in 60 minutes of regulation and the five-minute overtime period, while Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) posted his second career shutout versus Western Michigan University in the scoreless tie at Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo, Mich. Bakala turned away 31 saves in the game, equalling a career-high set in a 2-1 victory over the University of Alabama-Huntsville Nov. 1 of this season. In addition to Bakala’s flawless effort between the pipes, BSU’s team defense came up with 11 blocked shots. Brady Wacker (Fr., Jansen, Saskatchewan) led all Bemidji State players with three blocks. Although the game officially goes in the books as a tie, Western Michigan earned bragging rights, taking the exhibition shootout, 2-1, in three rounds. The Beavers sent Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario), Jamie MacQueen (So., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) and Shea Walters (So., F, Hibbing, Minn.) to the ice for the shootout. Read was stymied by a kick save from Riley Gill, who posted his eighth career shutout in the contest. Bakala responded with a save of his own. Then MacQueen made good on his shootout attempt and the Broncos knotted the score at 1-1 with a goal form Max Campbell. Finally after Walters missed on his attempt, WMU’s J.J. Crew lit the lamp to send the WMU faithful home happy. Western Michigan held a slight edge on the shot board peppering Bakala with 31 shots on goal, while the Beavers managed to fire 29 on target at the other end of the ice. The Beavers’ penalty kill unit got back on track holding WMU scoreless on three power-play opportunities after allowing five goals on eight opportunities in the series versus Minnesota State University Dec. 11-12. On the flip side, the Beaver power-play unit was held without a goal on four chances, managing just three shots on net. The BSU/WMU all-time series remains deadlocked at 2-2-1. Entering the series each team own a pair of wins in the rivalry (2-2-0) dating back to 2004.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- (Lawson Ice Arena) -- Water-tight goaltending and a potent power-play propelled the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team to a 3-0 nonconference victory over Western Michigan University Sunday at Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo, Mich. Sophomore goaltender Dan Bakala (Calgary, Alberta) turned away 26 shots en route to his second consecutive shutout, the third of his career, while Ben Kinne (So., F, St. Paul, Minn) matched a career-high by netting two goals and Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) and Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) each pitched in three assists as the Beavers snapped a season-long three game winless streak (0-2-1) and improved to 14-4-2 on the season. Special teams play was pivotal in the Beavers’ 14th win of the season. A power-play that had been held scoreless in its last 11 opportunities, a streak spanning nearly seven periods, accounted for all of Bemidji State’s scoring on the afternoon as the Beavers were an efficient 3-for-6 on the man advantage. In addition to special teams offense, the Bemidji State penalty-kill unit snuffed out all five of the Broncos’ power-play chances to finish the weekend holding WMU scoreless on nine man advantage opportunities. After the first period of play, the score remained tied at 0-0, bringing immediate flashbacks of a game between the teams just 24 hours earlier that was played in its entirety without a single goal. But just 35 seconds into the second stanza, BSU’s junior winger Ian Lowe (Bradwardine, Manitoba) broke the scoreless streak after four periods with his career-best eighth goal of 2009-10 with help from Read and Hunt. The goal came with just eight seconds remaining on a power-play that carried over from a hooking infraction called on WMU’s Tyler Ludwig late in the first period. Kinne put Bemidji State up by two goals at the 9:53 mark when he took passes for Hunt and Read and converted the Beavers’ fourth power-play chance of the afternoon into his fifth goal of the season. Bakala piled up 11 of his 26 saves in the period and kept the Broncos off the scoreboard as the Beavers skated to the locker room after 40 minutes of play up 2-0. Kinne added his sixth lamplighter of the campaign at the 11:01 mark of the third period to give Bemidji State a 3-0 advantage. Adding their third assists of the game on the play, Read set a new career-best, while Hunt equaled a personal-best of three helpers set Mar. 7, 2009 versus Robert Morris University. Bakala was again spectacular in net versus the Broncos posting backto-back shutouts for the first time in his career as he improved to 11-2-2 on the season and climbed to third in the country in goals against average (1.71) and fourth in save percentage (.937). Jerry Kuhn was tagged with the loss after allowing three power-play goals while totaling 27 saves in 60:00 minutes of play. He falls to 1-3-1 on the season. The victory gives the Beavers an 3-2-1 edge in the all-time BSU/WMU series, while it improves the team’s record to 3-1-2 versus teams hailing from the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

LEWISTON, N.Y. (Dwyer Arena) -- All good things must come to an end. Tonight the Bemidji State men’s ice hockey team’s bid for a perfect College Hockey America season ended after eight games. A hard-nosed Niagara squad battled back from an early two-goal deficit to rattle off six consecutive goals and protect its home ice with a 6-4 league victory tonight at Dwyer Arena in Lewiston, N.Y. Although No. 11 BSU opened the game with dominant play during the first 20 minutes and skated into the second period holding a 2-0 lead, Niagara tallied three unanswered goals in the second and piled up three more in the first 13:51 of the third to put the game out of reach for the Beavers. “The first period might have been one of our better periods of the year,” commented head coach Tom Serratore. “Whether we self destructed after that, I don’t know. But once we took a few shortcuts and they converted on them, momentum began to shift.” “You knew those kids were going to play a better second period after that tough first period.” He added, “I wish we would have responded a little better, kept our foot on the gas and paid more attention to detail. But you have to give credit to Niagara. The bottom line is that they played with a lot of intensity, they took it to us in the second and third periods and they earned it.” It took the Beavers just 8:54 to get on the scoreboard. Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) netted his ninth goal of the season with help from Brad Hunt (So., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) and Shea Walters (So., F, Hibbing, Minn.) just nine seconds into BSU’s first power-play opportunity of the evening. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) fired a puck from the top of the right circle, through traffic and past the NU goaltender Chris Noonan, to stretch the Beavers’ lead to two goals just under 10 minutes later (18:06). The game’s first even-strength lamplighter and Cramer’s seventh of the season, sent Bemidji State to the locker room after the first stanza with a comfortable 2-0 lead. Maybe too comfortable. The Purple Eagles struck back at the 7:35 mark of the second to reel the Beavers to within a goal, 2-1. Paul Zanette fired a rocket that was initially saved by Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta), but C.J. Chartrain put the rebound past the BSU goaltender to get the hosting Purple Eagles on the scoreboard. Niagara evened the score, 2-2, at the 18:47 mark. Just 10 seconds after BSU newcomer Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.) was whistled for slashing, the Bemidji State penalty-kill unit gave up its first power-play goal since Dec. 12--a streak spanning 203 minutes and two seconds. Thirty-two seconds later (19:12), Derek Foam scored to give NU its first lead of the game and swing the momentum to NU as the teams exited for the second intermission. Niagara would ride that wave of momentum into the third period piling three more goals onto their lead. Marc Zanette capitalized on a BSU turnover after a face off in their own zone to net the first of his game-high two goals on the night and Bryan Haczyk scored what would stand as the game winner 57 seconds later (5:53), before Zanette potted his second of the game to put NU up 6-2. Down four goals with just over six minutes to go in the game, the Beavers played with urgency. The team finished the period with a 21-6 advantage in shots on goal and got goals from George and Hunt in the final 90 seconds but it was too little, too late. George and Hunt led the way for the Beavers as each netted a goal and an assist in the loss. Niagara had five players garner two points in the game led by Marc Zanette’s two-goal effort. Bakala, who played just 45:53 and posted 23 saves before being pulled for Mathieu Dugas (Fr., G, L’Assomtion, Quebec), was tagged with the loss after allowing five NU goals. He moves to 11-3-2 on the year.

LEWISTON, N.Y. (Dwyer Arena) -- It’s been a long time coming. Freshman Brance Orban (F, Lethbridge, Alberta) has put in his time at practice, watched his teammates contribute and waited patiently for his turn to prove he belongs. Saturday, Orban got his chance and he made the most of it. In his first collegiate start, Orban, who found himself flanking the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team’s top line along side the Beavers’ top scorer Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) and Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba), not only held his own, he led the Beavers to a 4-3 College Hockey America victory over Niagara University at Dwyer Arena in Lewiston, N.Y. Orban notched a pair of goals, including the game winner, while adding an assist. “Brance is a smart player,” commented BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “We put him in there with a couple other smart players in Matt Read and Ian Lowe for Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.) and Brance filled in just great.” For the second consecutive night, the Beavers skated out to a 2-0 lead getting goals from a pair of unlikely contributors. Junior Dan MacIntyre (D, Fort Frances, Ontario) got the Beavers on the board 16:30 into the game firing a shot through traffic from the point for the first goal of his career. Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F. Park Rapids, Minn.) and Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) were credited with assists on the even-strength goal. Just 12 seconds later (16:42), Orban found the back of the net with help from Read to put the Beavers up 2-0. A power-play opportunity in the final 90 seconds of the period set the Beavers up in position to take a three-goal lead to the locker room after 20 minutes of play, but a turnover in the neutral zone cost the Beavers that chance and Paul Zanette beat Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) for a short-handed goal with 67 seconds to play in the first period. The teams skated off the ice for the beak with the Beavers leading 2-1. Twenty-four hours after opening the second period flat only to watch an early lead stolen from them, the Beavers exploded into the second period Saturday. It took Read just 1:57 to grab his team-leading 13th goal of the season as Orban collected the first assist of his career at BSU. BSU killed a 5-on-3 lasting 1:14 midway through the second, but the Purple Eagles would capitalize on a man advantage late in the period to stay within striking distance, 3-2. Leading by a goal, Bemidji State opened the third period just as it did the second. Orban posted his second tally of the evening with help from Brady Wacker (Fr., D, Jansen, Saskatchewan) just 1:42 into the stanza. The goal, putting BSU up 4-2 would be a big one for the Beavers. It would stand as the gamewinner after Ryan Oldis recorded his 12th goal of the season with just 6:09 left in regulation. Bakala and the Beavers held off a late charge by NU for a 4-3 win to salvage a series split. Bakala posted 26 save, including 14 in the final frame, to collect his 12th victory of the season. He is now 12-3-2. Chris Noonan turned away 27 BSU shots, but allowed four goals and was tagged with the loss. He falls to 4-7-0 on the season. The win allows the Beavers to climb to within a game of taking control of the all-time series with Niagara. NU owns a 21-20-8 advantage since the series began in 1999. The Purple Eagles may hold 14-8-3 record over the Beavers when playing at Dwyer Arena, the site of the final CHA Tournament Mar. 12-13, 2010, but BSU has won four of its last five on the NU’s home ice.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) posted two goals and an assist and Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) piled up 29 saves as the No. 14 Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey topped No. 4 University of Minnesota Duluth, 4-1, to open a nonconference home-andhome series at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. In the premier match up on the college hockey docket Friday, the Beavers prevailed in typical BSU fashion playing stingy team defense and out working the Bulldogs to create scoring opportunities. Lowe netted his 10th goal of the season to open the scoring at the 11:03 mark of the first period. BSU’s play making defender Brad Hunt (So. Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) found freshman Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) behind the net, who in turn, passed the puck to Lowe crashing the net. The Beavers took the 1-0 lead into the locker room at the conclusion of the first period and held it through the second, thanks to selfless defensive play and a hot goaltender. Bemidji State killed off all four of the Bulldogs’ power-play opportunities during the first 40 minutes, including, 44 seconds of 5-on-3 play, and held the one-goal lead despite being out shot 12-6 in the second stanza alone. BSU opened the third period on the attack. Hunt and the Beavers capitalized on their first power-play opportunity of the final frame when the sophomore rifled a shot from the point that made its way through traffic and past Kenny Reiter to put the Beavers up 2-0. Jamie MacQueen (So., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) and Lowe were credited with assists on the play. With a two-goal lead just four minutes into the third, the Beavers kicked the pedal to the floor and buried the Bulldogs with goals from Lowe and Brance Orban (Fr., F, Lethbridge, Alberta) prior to the 12-minute mark. Lowe simply out hustled everyone on the ice taking a shot off the pipe in his own zone and though traffic in the neutral zone before deflecting the puck off Reiter’s back for the second two-goal night of his career (9:54). Seventy-six seconds later, Orban struck for the third time in BSU’s last two games, firing a shot from the right face off circle to end Reiter’s night. The Bulldogs would get on the board with just 4:26 to play as their top scorer, Jack Connolly, put a power-play marker past Bakala with help from Rob Bordson and Mike Connolly. The BSU penalty-kill unit held UMD scoreless in their first five man advantage chances and finished the night 5-for-6. The unit has allowed just three power-play goals in the Beavers’ last five outings--a streak spanning 24 opportunities (.875). The BSU power-play unit scored on one of its four chances. Bakala was sharp tonight to say the least, but had plenty of help from his teammates who watered down the potent Bulldog offensive attack by deflecting 27 shot attempts before they had a chance to reach the crease. The sophomore improved to 13-3-2 with the win, allowing just one goal in 59:53 between the pipes. Reiter was tagged with the loss after giving up all four BSU goals in 51:05 of work. He finished with 20 saves. Brett Hjelle stopped two shots and held BSU scoreless working the final 8:42 of play. After being swept by Minnesota Duluth last year, BSU used Friday’s victory to close the Bulldog’s lead in the all-time series to 18-8-0 and close their game at the Glas with a 4-3-0 edge over UMD. The victory over the nationally-ranked Bulldogs also allowed the Beavers to improve to 2-0 versus top 5 teams in 200910. BSU also knocked off No. 1 Miami University (Ohio) Nov. 27.

Duluth, Minn. (Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center) -- What a finish. Trailing 2-1 after 40 minutes of play, the No. 14 Bemidji State men’s ice hockey team tied the game three times in the games final 13 minutes and would need less than a minute of extra time to send the capacity DECC crowd home in disappointment, but not before giving them their monies worth. BSU posted its third consecutive win earning a 5-4 overtime victory versus No. 4 University of Minnesota Duluth. After Ben Kinne (So., F. St. Paul. Minn.) sent the game to overtime with a goal at the horn, freshman Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) secured the win for the Beavers taking advantage of a UMD turnover in front of the net. Once the puck was on his stick he accelerated past the Bulldog defensive pair and beat the goaltender with a back-hand flip. Not only did the Beavers claim the nonconference series sweep with the gutty victory, they also improved to 3-0-0 versus teams ranked among the nation’s top five spots in 2009-10. The Beavers struck first as senior captain Chris McKelvie (F, New Brighton, Minn.) potted his seventh goal of the season at the 10:11 mark of the first period. Fellow senior Tyler Lehrke (F, Park Rapids, Minn.) started the play intercepting a pass on the blue line in stride and skating it into the offensive zone before giving it up to Jamie MacQueen (So., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) who, in turn, found McKelvie on the left doorstep for a quick tip into the back of the net. The Bulldogs knotted the game at 1-1 with 1:50 remaining in the first on a Chad Huttel laser from the top of the right face off circle. Beaver goaltender Dan Bakala (So., Calgary, Alberta) collected six saves and was aided by the post on two occasions during the first 20 minutes of play as BSU was out shot 11-7. The Beavers and Bulldogs skated to their respective locker rooms deadlocked at 1-1 at the conclusion of the first. The Bulldogs had the Beavers on their heels for a good portion of the second and took its first lead of the series 10:27 into the second frame. Jordan Fulton skated the puck behind Bakala, wrapped around and found an opening between the BSU goaltender’s pad and the post for his first goal of the season. UMD clung to the onegoal lead, 2-1, after two periods, out shooting the Beavers 13-5 in the second. Bemidji State entered the third period facing a deficit for just the fifth time this season and was 0-3-1 in previous four games. But tonight would be different. Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) scored a short-handed goal 7:14 in to tie the game at 2-2 to kick start the see-saw battle. Minnesota Duluth got a power-play goal from Travis Oleksuk 1:07 later to regain ownership of the lead, 3-2. At the 13:37-minute mark, Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) scored his fifth goal in the Beavers’ last five games and his third of the series to even the score at 3-3. But the Bulldogs looked to drive the dagger 49 seconds later. Mike Seidle buried a shot from the top of the right face off circle to put the home team up 4-3 with just under six minutes to play. But the Bemidji State would find another gear. With its goaltender off the ice for the final 38 seconds in lieu of an extra attacker, Kinne willed the puck in the net with 1.3 ticks left to tie the game at 4-4 and extend it to overtime. It took just 36 seconds for the Beavers to claim the victory, their first sweep over the Bulldogs since the 2005-06 campaign and to regain ownership of the coveted Babe the Blue Ox traveling trophy. Bakala turned away 31 shots en rout to his 14th victory of the season. He improves to 14-3-2 overall and has not lost in his last three starts.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- The John S. Glas Fieldhouse has been the site of countless historic events since its erection in 1967 and Friday evening it was host to yet another. Behind two-goal, two assist efforts from Ian Lowe (Jr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba), the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey program recorded its 500th victory in its hallowed hockey barn with a 5-1 triumph over Robert Morris University. The Beavers, who are in their 43rd and final season calling the Glas home and are just months from moving into the new 4,300-seat, state-of-the are Bemidji Regional Events Center, have logged 683 games on their current home ice and have compiled a record of 500-143-41. That’s a winning percentage of over 76-percent or an average of nearly 12 home games per season. Talk about home ice advantage. BSU got out to a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of play and would not look back. The Beavers would sandwich the Colonials’ only marker of the night with two more goals before registering an empty-netter to bring the score to a final at 5-1. No. 6 Bemidji State improves to 18-5-2 overall and are the first team in the country to claim its 18th win this season. The Beavers also saw their lead in the College Hockey America standings swell to 12 points over secondplace RMU as they climbed to 10-1-0 in league play. George posted his 10th goal of the season just 1:24 into the first when Lowe and Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) found the rookie on the right post for an easy tap in 63 seconds into the Beavers’ first power-play opportunity of the weekend. Just over 12 minutes later (13:56), Lowe added a goal of his own to send BSU to the locker room grasping a 2-0 lead. In an up-and-down, fast-paced first period, BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (So., G, Calgary, Alberta) posted 13 of his 32 saves as the shots were locked at 13-13. Bakala would go on to push his season’s record to 15-3-2 and extended his winning streak to four games with the victory. Just as he did to open the game, George got the Beavers out the gates quickly as the second stanza got underway, netting his second goal of the night just 34 seconds into the period. Linemates Lowe and Matt Read (Jr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) were credited with assists on the play. At the 8:04 mark, James Lyle got the best of Bakala firing a shot from the right face off circle into the back of the net to reel the Beavers to within two goals, 3-1, but Bemidji State would respond to extend their lead to three goals five minutes later (13:10). Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.) crashed the net and pounded a Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) rebound past Brooks Ostergard, the RMU goaltender, for his fifth goal of 2009-10. The score remained locked a 4-1 through 19 minutes of the third frame, but when Robert Morris head coach Derek Schooley elected to pull his goalie with just over a minute to play, BSU would need only 35 seconds to make him pay. Lowe picked off a pass in front of the Beavers’ net, chipped the puck past the Colonial defensive pair and chopped at the puck sliding into the offensive zone from his belly for his first empty-net goal of the season. The game would end with RMU holding a slight lead in shots, 33-32. The Beavers scored the game’s only special teams goal of the night, finishing 1-for-5 on the man advantage, while BSU held the Colonials scoreless on six chances.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (John S. Glas Fieldhouse) -- Robert Morris University stung No. 6 Bemidji State University Saturday handing the Beavers a 5-2 setback in the team’s final appearance in the John S. Glas Fieldhouse. The Beavers fall to 18-6-2 overall and saw its College Hockey America record dip to 10-2-0 on a night when it honored its 2009-10 senior class of Kyle Hardwick (Sr., D, Warroad, Minn.), Tyler Lehrke (Sr., F, Park Rapids, Minn.), Chris McKelvie (Sr., F, New Brighton, Minn.) and Chris Peluso (Sr., D, Wadena, Minn.). RMU out played the Beavers from wire-to-wire scoring just three minutes into the game, adding another midway through the second and recording three unanswered goals to close out the win. Nathan Longpre scored 42 seconds into the Colonials’ first power-play opportunity of seven power-play chances of the evening. The visitors would take the 1-0 advantage into the second period of play. RMU was first to strike in a penalty-riddled second frame. Zach Hervato put the Colonials up 2-0 at the 9:47 mark of the period. Despite taking three penalties in the stanza, the Beavers struck back to climb to within a goal after 40 minutes of play. Ryan Cramer (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) scored his eighth marker of the season and he was assisted by Brance Orban (Fr., F, Lethbridge, Alberta) and Ben Kinne (So., F, St. Paul, Minn.). Jordan George (Fr., F, Madison, Wis.) level the score at 2-2 8:43 into the third period. But the tie would be short-lived. Thirty-nine second later, Denny Urban would bead BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (So., Calgary, Alberta) with a laser from the point. Robert Morris would go on to add a goal from Stefan Salituro and an empty-net tally from J.C. Velasquez as the final horn sounded to bring the score to 5-2. The Beavers were out shot for the second consecutive night, 30-28. Bakala collected 25 saves but was tagged with the loss after surrendering four RMU goals in 57:03 between the pipes. He moves to 15-4-2 on the season. The Colonials’ Brooks Ostergard bounded back from a 5-1 loss 24-hours earlier by posting 26 saves en route to his seventh victory of the season. He improves to 7-11-2. With the 5-2 victory, RMU put an end to a five-game losing skid a the hands of the Beavers. But BSU still holds a commanding 17-9-2 lead in the all-time series and an impressive 11-2-1 mark in games played in Bemidji, Minn.
