Player to Watch Senior Matt Read will make his final appearance at Sanford Center this weekend as the Beavers wrap up the 2010-11 season. In four seasons at BSU, Read has solidified himself among Beaver greats. In addition to garnering the program’s 82nd All-America pick in 2009-10, he holds BSU Division I-era records for goals (60), assists (78) and points (138).

The Match up

The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team returns to Sanford Center this weekend to wrap up the 2010-11 regular season. The Beavers host the University of Minnesota in the inaugural Western Collegiate Hockey Association meeting between the teams as the Golden Gophers make their first trip to Bemidji since an Oct. 14, 2000 game at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse to open the 2000-01 campaign. The Beavers, who enter the final weekend of league play tied with Minnesota State for 10th place in the WCHA standings and just two points behind Alaska-Anchorage for ninth, are coming out of a weekend during which they were swept by No. 1 North Dakota, 5-2 and 5-1, but have gained a point in five of the last seven WCHA games. Bemidji State is led in scoring by sophomore forward Jordan George, who has 32 points this season, which includes a career-high 15 goals and a team-leading three game-winning goals. Senior Matt Read is just two points behind (30) and leads the team with 17 assists. Minnesota arrives at Sanford Center as one of the hottest teams in the WCHA. Unbeaten in their last five games (4-0-1), the Gophers swept Michigan Tech at Mariucci Arena last weekend with a pair of 5-2 victories. Currently in fifth place in the league standings, Minnesota appears to have locked down home ice in the first round of the WCHA playoffs. The Golden Gophers are led in scoring by senior forward Jacob Cepis (12-17=29), while freshman Erik Haula is second (6-18=24) and paces the squad with 18 assists. Junior Kent Patterson has shouldered the bulk of Minnesota’s goaltender duties and has been in net for 13 of the Gophers’ 15 victories (13-7-5). He carries a 2.51 goals against average, while leading the WCHA with a .926 save percentage.

The Rivalry

Although the Bemidji State/Minnesota series features two of the most tradition-rich hockey programs in all of collegiate hockey, the rivalry dates back just 11 seasons and spans just eight games. The Golden Gophers hold a 7-1-0 advantage in the all-time series and has out scored BSU 41-16, but the Beavers got the best of Minnesota in the last meeting between the teams, Nov. 15, 2010. After falling 4-1 in the nonconference series opener, BSU got a pair of goals from Jamie MacQueen to bounced back and get a 6-2 win in the finale.

The Unparalleled Tradition

The 2010-11 season represents the 12th at the NCAA Division I level, and the 55th year of intercollegiate competition, for a BSU program which has assembled one of the finest traditions in all of American collegiate sport. u BSU owns 13 NAIA, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III national titles. u The Beavers have captured 21 conference titles in 54 seasons of intercollegiate competition. u In 2009, BSU became the first No. 16 seed to ever earn a spot in the Frozen Four. In just its 10th year at the NCAA Division I level, only one team, the 1958 Denver Pioneers, found its way to college hockey’s grandest stage faster. u BSU has developed six NHL players, six Olympians and 82 All-America honorees. u BSU has compiled an all-time record of 978-484-90 (.660) in 1,552 games.

Matt Read became Bemidji State’s 82nd All-America selection in the history of the program and second since the team made the move to the NCAA Division I ranks 12 years ago, when he was named RBK Second-Team All-America by the American Hockey Coaches’ Association, following a junior season in which he scored 19-22=41 points. This season, BSU again gained national attention when defender Brad Hunt was selected to the USCHO.com Preseason All-America Second Team.

Oh captain, My captain

Senior forward Matt Read (Ilderton, Ontario) captains the Beavers during the 2010-11 campaign. Senior defenseman Ryan Adams (Brandon, Manitoba) and senior forward Ian Lowe (Bradwardine, Manitoba) will have the “A” on their jerseys designating them as alternate captains.

Looking for No. 1

The 2010-11 season marks the Beavers’ first in their new home--Sanford Center. With any new building, there is a first time for everything. Junior forward Jamie MacQueen potted the first goal 1:52 into the Beavers’ Oct. 15 games versus North Dakota. Senior Ryan Cramer recorded the first assist and was the first to sent to penalty box (at the 6:29 mark of the same game), and the Beavers garnered the first victory and shutout in their new facility Nov. 13, 2010 in a decisive 4-0 blanking of the University of Alaska Anchorage. The Beavers first series sweep in their new digs came over then-No. 4 Nebraska Omaha Dec. 3-4.

New kids on the block

BSU’s 2010-11 move to the WCHA marks the fourth league home for the program. The Beavers entered 2010-11 with a perfect 3-0-0 mark in their league debuts, but dropped their WCHA opener, 5-2, North Dakota. As charter members of the ICHA, the Beavers defeated Lake Superior State, 3-1, Dec. 3, 1966. In its first season in the NCHA, BSU topped Wisconsin-Superior, 9-3, Dec. 10, 1980 and when the team moved to the CHA in 1999, BSU was victorious over Army Oct. 15, 5-2. The Beavers finished each of their previous inaugural league campaigns with a record of at least .500.

Playing close to home

Six of the 27 players on the Beavers’ 2010-11 roster hail form the state of Minnesota. Ryan Cramer and Drew Fisher call International Falls their hometown, Shea Walters is from Hibbing and Ben Kinne, from St. Paul, and Matt Hartmann, who calls Hugo home, are from the Twin Cities-metro area. Newcomer Sam Rendle played his high school hockey just 90 miles down Highway 2 in Grand Rapids.

Scoring contribution

Eleven BSU players have recorded at least five points this season and 22 of the Beavers’ 26 rostered players have worked their way into the scoring column. Sophomore Jordan George leads a group of seven BSU players with at least 10 points owning 15-17=32 in the Beavers’ first 32 games.

Familiar look

Tom Serratore returns 22 letter winners from a year ago including 2010 RBK Second-Team All-America pick Matt Read. BSU returners enter 2010-11 seasoned after carrying the bulk of the scoring load a year ago. Led by Read, Jordan George, Brad Hunt and Ian Lowe, who finished as Bemidji State’s top four scorers, BSU returns 86 percent of its goals (110-of118), 82 percent of its assists (156-of-191) and 83 percent of its scoring (266-of-319 points).

At home at Sanford Center

The Beavers have struggled to generate wins this season. BSU is 5-7-2 when playing on home ice in 2010-11 and is 4-6-2 in WCHA games at Sanford Center. However, the Beavers are 4-2-1 at home since Nov. 27, which includes three shutout victories.

Three is the magic number

2

In 2010-11, three goals have been a threshold for Bemidji State. The Beavers are 0-13-1 when allowing more than two goals and are 10-3-1 when scoring at least three. BSU has won just one game this season when scoring fewer than three times--a Feb. 12 1-0 victory at Michigan Tech and have garnered one point when allowing more

BSU 18th in all-time wins Bemidji State became the 18th program among the 58 current members of NCAA Division I to post its 900th all-time victory when it defeated Ala.-Huntsville, 3-2, on Dec. 15, 2006. BSU’s 978 victories currently rank 18th all-time among current members of Division I. Cornell is next ahead of BSU, in 17th alltime with 1,000 victories. Seventeen Division I programs have posted 1,000 wins, including 2010-11 BSU foe Minnesota which leads Division I with 1,630 all-time victories, and is the only program in the nation with 1,600 or more all-time wins, while Michigan is second with 1,526 victories.

Keep ’em under two

In 2009-10 when BSU allowed its opponents two-or-fewer goals, it was 19-1-2. BSU finished the 37-game season, ranked fifth in the nation in scoring defense, allowing a meager 2.35 goals per game, while giving up 2.22 in 18 CHA contests. This season, BSU is 12-3-2 when holding it opponent to two goals or fewer.

Senior Solute

Saturday’s game versus Minnesota marks the end of an era in BSU hockey. The BSU will honor its senior class before the game. The 2011 seniors make up a class that has been a part of three College Hockey America regular-season championships, a CHA Tournament title, BSU’s first at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament a trip to the 2009 Frozen four and the transition into a new building-Sanford Center--and the WCHA. BSU’s 2011 senior class includes: Ryan Adams, Emil Billberg, Ryan Cramer, Dan MacIntyre, Matt Read and Ian Lowe.

Quick to strike

Scoring first in 17 of their first 32 contests of 2010-11 the Beavers have lit the lamp during the first minute of play three times in 2010-11. Even more, the Beavers have found the back of the net on their first shot on goal in six games this season. BSU is 7-6-2 when scoring first.

Climbing BSU’s Division I assists li st

Brad Hunt has accumulated 66 assists during his first 106 games, or just under three complete seasons, as a Beaver to settle into fourth on the BSU Division I assists list. His two assists versus Colorado College Feb. 18-19 helped him to climb past former teammate Tyler Scofield (2006-09) alone into fourth place (65). He remains three helpers shy of Andrew Murray (2001-2005) and Luke Erickson (2003-07) and a tie for second place on the list.

BSU versus the nationally-ranked

In 2010-11 the Beavers have played 13 games against teams holding down one of the nation’s top 15 rankings, which includes three of the top four teams according to USAToday and USA Hockey Magazine. BSU is 4-7-2 versus the nation’s top 15 this season. After going 0-5-1 versus nationally-ranked competition during the first two months of 2010-11, the Beavers are 4-2-1 versus the top 15 since Dec. 3. Since the Beavers made the jump to the NCAA Division I ranks for the 1999-2000 campaign, BSU is 11-44-4 (.224) versus teams in the top-15. With that said, BSU is now 9-9-2 (.500) versus the top 15 since the beginning of the 2008-09 campaign.

Read Makes it better

There is really no way to get around it, the Bemidji State men’s hockey team is better when senior 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 35-14-3 when he scores a goal, but ironically, BSU is just 4-7-1 when he scores in 2010-11.

Offensive Defenseman

Junior defenseman Brad Hunt has been a big factor for BSU on both ends of the ice since becoming a Beaver in 2008-09. In addition to his duties in BSU’s defensive zone, he has been a true offensive threat--especially on the power play. As a freshman, he was third on the team scoring 9-23=32 points with a team-leading 7-16=23 coming on the man advantage. Last winter he had seven goals and a team-leading 26 assist to pace all BSU defenders, while ranking sixth among the nation’s top blueliners (0.89 ppg). His 17 points (5-12=17) on the power play again paced the team. This season, he has a goal and 17 helpers and 10 points (1-9=10) have come on the man advantage. He is fourth on the team in power-play scoring.

175 in the books

In his 10th season as a collegiate head coach, BSU’s bench boss Tom Serratore recently achieved another milestone--his 175th victory as a head coach. He is 175-144-37 (.546) since inheriting the Beaver hockey program from legendary R.H. “Bob” Peters prior to the 2001-02 season. Serratore is second at the school in victories by a head coach behind Peters who posted 702 wins at BSU from 1966-2001.

General notes Read all about BSU’s scoring leaders

In 142 games and three-plus seasons in a green and white uniform, senior Matt Read has piled up 138 points (60-78=138). With an assist Dec. 10, 2009 Read surpassed Luke Erickson (2003-07) to become BSU Division I-era (since 1999-00) scoring leader. In addition, he owns the top spot in assists (78) and has surpassed Brendan Cook (2001-05) for the top spot in goals scored (60). Read is 20th on BSU’s all-time scoring list.

Beaver scoring by class Buoyed by career scoring numbers from Matt Read and Ian Lowe, the 2009-10 junior class led the team posting 55 goals and 52 assists for 107 points. That class, now seniors, again leads the points race with 36 goals and 45 helpers. The sophomores (18-31=49) and juniors (10-39=49) are tied for second, while the freshman class, which has 16 points (8-8=16) to its credit, rounds out the group.

Put it in the books after two

Since making the jump to NCAA Division I in 1999-2000, the Beavers are 151-912 when leading after two periods of play, which includes a perfect 8-0-0 mark in 2010-11. BSU has not lost a game when taking a lead into the third period since Jan. 18, 2008 at Colorado College--a streak spanning 48 games (46-0-2). Quinnipiac dropped a 3-2 overtime contest versus Union Feb. 5 to end its NCAA Division I-leading streak at 59 games (54-0-5) leaving BSU with the nation’s longest current streak of wins without blowing a lead after two periods.

The Hunt for power-play goals

In his third season, defenseman Brad Hunt has piled up 13 power-play goals, including seven in 2008-09, which matched a BSU Division I-era record for power-play goals by a defender. Hunt, who potted his first power-play goal of the season Feb. 5, currently sits just one goal on the man advantage from matching Clay Simmons (1999-02) for BSU’s Division I-era mark for power-play goals by a defenseman.

Short-handed? No problem.

Netting another in BSU’s Feb. 27 loss to North Dakota, Matt Read has all three of the Beavers’ short-handed goals in 2010-11 for a career total of nine shorties in the green and white. He is now tied with Brendan Cook (9) in the BSU Division-era record book for career short-handed markers.

Don’t call it a shutout

Held scoreless in a Dec. 11 game at Wisconsin, BSU has now been shutout twice in 201011. The last time the Beavers were blanked three times in a season was 2000-01.

Penalty killers...

A BSU penalty-kill that entered the Feb. 26-27 series at No. 1 North Dakota allowing just five power-play goals in its last 10 games (39-44/.886) and has held opponents scoreless on the man advantage in 13 of its last 21 games, conceded three power-play goals in back-to-back games versus the high-powered Sioux. Three power-play goals allowed matched BSU’s season-high set in a 4-3 loss at Alabama-Huntsville. The unit is now at .799 (119-for-149) in penaltykill chances this season and ranks ninth in league play at .797.

Freaky Friday

Although Bemidji State has been victorious on Friday twice since the start of the new year, in 2010-11 BSU is a meager 3-10-3 in the first game of the weekend, while the team has experience much greater success on Saturdays posting a 9-6-1 record in the final game of a series. The Beavers have been out scored 50-35 on Fridays this season, which includes a 43-29 deficit in 13 Friday contests in league play.

Man Advantage

Bemidji State is coming off a weekend versus North Dakota during which it went 1-for-7 on the power play (.143). However, the BSU power-play currently ranks as the league’s most efficient unit scoring on over 21 percent of its opportunities (20-of-92/.217). With that said, BSU ranks 12th in the league in penalties taken with only 92 power-play opportunities in league play this season--that is 51 fewer opportunities than Colorado College which leads the lead in chances.

BSU vs. No. 1

Bemidji State is 1-6-0 versus the nation’s top team since making the jump to the NCAA’s Division I ranks prior to the 1999-2000 season. The last, and only time, the Beavers have dethroned a top-ranked team came in the form of a 3-2 win over Miami (Ohio) Nov. 27, 2009 at Ralph Engelstad Arena as a part of North Dakota’s Subway Holiday Classic.

Read on the man advantage

Matt Read now has 15 power-play goals during his career surpassing Clay Simmons (19992002) for ninth on BSU’s Division I-era power-play goals scored list last weekend only to tie teammate Ian Lowe for eighth on the list. His next power-play goal will slide him into a tie with former teammate Travis Winter (16) for seventh place on the list. His six power-play goals and 7-6=13 points in the man advantage in 2010-11 leads the team.

Shoot the Puck

The Beavers were out shot 62-31 last weekend at North Dakota, managing 15 shots, just one more than their season-low 14 in the season-opener versus UND, in Saturday’s 5-2 loss. BSU has been out shot 20 times in 2010-11 and has been out shot 924-788 overall and 771-608 in league play this season.

Academic Excellence

As a junior Matt Read had 19-22=41 points in 2009-10 making him the first BSU player to post back-to-back 40-point seasons during a Division I career and the first since Bernie Adlys accomplished the feat 1994-95 and 1995-96. With another 40-point season in 201011, Read will become the first BSU player to top 40 points in three consecutive seasons since Jamie Erb, who is tied for seventh on BSU all-time scoring list (86-94=180), posted 46, 50 and 53 between 1990-93.

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 the next evening. More recently, Climie was called up and saw time with the Phoenix Coyotes Dec. 20 and was recalled to meet the team in Denver Jan. 6. 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.

The key to a win is Billberg

Senior forward Emil Billberg has potted a career-high five goals in the first 26 games of his senior season. BSU is at 3-1-1 when Billberg scores a goal this season and is 6-3-2 when he posts a point.

Our share of OT

Extending their Feb. 18 game versus Colorado College to overtime, the Beavers have now played in nine overtime games during the 2010-11 season, marking its most since playing in a school-record 15 in 2002-03. In the 11 years since the Beavers moved to Division I, they have escaped overtime with at least a tie in 75.6 percent (62) of the 82 games that have needed extra time to decide the outcome. Since March 11, 2006, BSU is 10-5-16 in games extended to sudden death, including a 2-3-4 record in extra time in 2010-11.

Directions to the scoring column

Freshman forward Jeff Jubinville logged his first collegiate point Feb. 19, scoring in 14th collegiate appearance. The goal left fellow rookie Garrett Ladd and sophomore Matt Hartmann (0-0=0) as the only BSU skaters without a point to their name.

Scoring from the blue line

The BSU defensive corps have been offensive as of late. The blueliners have posted 9-40=49 points, have contributed to the scoring in 23 of the Beavers’ 32 games and are now averaging 1.53 points per game. All eight defensemen that have seen the ice this season have logged at least one point. In addition, goaltender Dan Bakala has even recorded a pair of assist in 2010-11.

Assistance from the crease

January 7, BSU’s blueliners produced a goal and three assist including a helper from goaltender Dan Bakala. The assist was the third of his career and first to come from between the pipes for the Beavers since Bakala contributed to a goal versus Nov. 12. He needs just one more in the Beavers’ remaining 14 games to match Matt Dalton for BSU’s Division I–era record for assists by a goaltender in a single season. With three in his career, he is just two behind Jim Scanlan who registered five during his career.

Read for 60

Matt Read scored the 60th goal of his collegiate career last weekend. In addition to holding the Beavers’ Division 1-era record for goals scored, he is one of just 20 players in Beaver hockey history to record 60-or-more goals in his career.

Goals down the stretch

Jordan George has scored six of the Beavers’ last 17 goals, which included a pair of gamewinning goals, a game-tying goal and has at least a point in five of BSU’s last seven games. He leads the Beavers with 15-17=32 points. Breaking the 30-point plateau for the second consecutive season, he joins teammate Brad Hunt as the only players in BSU Division I-era (since 1999-2000) to open his collegiate career with back-to-back 30-point seasons. He had 13=21=34 points as a freshman in 2009-10.

One-goal wins...

BSU’s victory at MTU Feb. 12 stands as just the sixth 1-0 in the history of the program and is the first since scoring the only goal of the game Dec. 1, 2006 to defeat Wayne State University. Since making the jump to NCAA Division I for the 1999-2000 campaign, BSU is 2-54-7 when scoring only one goal.

As Bemidji State has made inroads in its development as a Division I program, its progress in the classroom has been remarkable. In its ninth year under head coach Tom Serratore, the BSU program has become an academic juggernaut, annually dominating the Academic All-College Hockey America honor roll. In addition, BSU has had 12 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic AllDistrict V selections over the last seven years and has passed the NCAA’s first four Academic Progress Rate performance checks with flying colors. Overall, the BSU men’s ice hockey team carries a cumulative GPA of over 3.5. NCAA Academic Progress Rate Bemidji State men’s hockey received a score of 970 in the May 2009 release of the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) score. BSU helped the sport of men’s ice hockey achieve an aggregate score of 970, the third-highest of any men’s sport in the Division. The NCAA has established an APR cut rate of 925, which equates to a graduation rate of approximately 50 percent, for all NCAA Division I sports. Programs which fail to meet the cut rate when 2006-07 numbers are added to the 200506 and 2004-03 data risk reductions in scholarships. NCAA APR ‘05 ‘06 ‘07 ‘08 Bemidji St. 990 980 973 973

Academic All-CHA BSU has led College Hockey America in Academic A ll-CHA honorees each of the last eight years. BSU placed 18 skaters on the 2008 all-academic team, surpassing its own league record set in 2003 and matched in 2004 and 2006. BSU’s 17-member group for 2010 continued its recent domination of the Academic All-CHA Team. BSU has an all-time total of 140 Academic All-CHA picks and its 132 honorees in nine years under head coach Tom Serratore leads CHA by a significant margin. CHA Student-Athlete of the Year Kyle Hardwick was named 2010 CHA StudentAthlete of the year at the league’s 2010 awards banquet. The honor is the second to be garnered by a member of the BSU hockey team since the leagues inception. Andrew Murray became the first player in CHA history to be named Player of the Year and Student-Athlete of the Year, picking up the historic sweep at the 2005 CHA awards banquet. Murray, a unanimous First-Team AllCHA pick, became the first BSU skater to be named CHA Student-Athlete of the Year. Academic All-District V Over the last seven years, 13 Beavers have been honored on the CoSIDA Academic All-District V At-Large Team. In 2005, Peter Jonsson became just the second BSU men’s hockey player to be named Academic All-America. He was the only men’s hockey player in the nation to earn FirstTeam laurels in 2005. He was a two-time Academic All-District V selection, so honored in 2004 and 2005. BSU’s other Academic All-District picks include Riley Weselowski (2006-07-08), Andrew Murray (2005), Bryce Methven (2003-04), Bill Methven (2003) Travis Winter (2008-09), Cody Bostock (2009) and Kyle Hardwick (2009-10).

Cramer’s rule

Senior forward Ryan Cramer scored his second goal of the season Friday. Cramer, who has 2-6=8 points in 2010-11, has three points (2-1=3) in BSU’s last three outings. The goal, his first unassisted marker as a Beaver, was Cramer’s 40th collegiate point.

Lowe-Down

An assist Feb. 26 marked the 75th point of senior Ian Lowe’s collegiate career. He is currently 12th on BSU’s Division I-era scoring list with 36-39=75 points.

onventional sports wisdom has long contended it is never wise to follow a legend. However, sporting a remarkable laundry-list of achievements after nearly nine 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 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. BSU finished 4-26-4 in 2000-01, the year before Serratore took control of Serratore’s Milestone Wins the program. He led BSU to a 12-18-5 record during his rookie campaign and 1a 10/12/01 vs Minnesota St. 3/14/03 vs Findlay increased BSU’s win total each of the four years that followed. BSU finished 25 b 2/27/04 at Air Force 23-13-1 in 2004-05, giving the Beavers a school-record for wins in a Division 43 50 11/19/04 at Niagara I season and back-to-back 20-win campaigns for the first time as a Division I 75 11/11/05 at Wayne St. (Mich.) program. In 2008-09 Serratore led the Beavers through the regular season to 100 1/5/07 vs Wayne St. (Mich.) post their fourth CHA championship in six years before their third CHA Tourna- 125 11/29/08 vs. Michigan Tech ment championship, the program’s first NCAA Division I Tournament victory 150 11/21/09 vs. Ala.-Huntsville and a chance represent the university and the CHA in the Frozen Four for the 175 2/19/11 vs. Colorado College a- coaching debut first time. The 2009-10 campaign served as the Beaver’s last as a member of College Hockey America and Serratore’s BSU squad went out with a bang. The team posted a 23-10-4 overall record with a 14-3-1 mark in CHA play en route to the team’s third consecutive league regular-season championship and fifth in nine seasons as members of the league. Bemidji State capped the season by earning its first at-large bid and its fourth appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Under Serratore’s guidance, 28 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 (200607, Cody Bostock (2007-08), Brad Hunt (2009-2010) and Matt Read (2009-2010) with four Beavers earning CHA Rookie of the Year laurels. BSU has had multiple skaters named First-Team All-CHA seven of the last eight 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 132 Academic All-CHA picks over the last nine years. Niagara is second with 103 selections in the same span. In addition, BSU has had nine 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 five-time CHA Coach of the Year, winning the honor in 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in 10 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.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (Bemidji Regional Event Center) – The outcome was not quite as planned, but for the capacity crowd of 4,373 at the Bemidji Regional Event Center, Oct. 15, 2010 will go down as a dream come true. Friday the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey opened its new hockey home on the south shore of Lake Bemidji after years of dreaming, planning and building. No. 2 University of North Dakota may have gained a 5-2 victory over the Beavers in the teams’ Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) 2010-11 opener, but the true stars of show were the state-of-the-art building and the celebration of the tradition-rich program it houses, leaving those in attendance buzzing with excitement. More than 300 alumni traveled back to Bemidji from all corners of the earth to help BSU and the City of Bemidji initiate the building. After a brief introduction of many of the players who served as building blocks during the first five decades of the program, a torch passing ceremony, and ceremonial puck drop dedicating the Robert H. Peters Rink, the teams took the ice and the puck dropped on a new era in Beaver Hockey. Jamie MacQueen (Jr., St. Thomas, Ontario) christened the building just 1:52 into the game, becoming the first male to net a goal in the new facility. Ryan Cramer (Sr., International Falls, Minn.), owner of the final goal in the John S. Glas Fieldhouse, BSU hockey home from 1967-2010, etched his name in the annals of BSU hockey yet again assisting on the historic marker. However, the lead would last just over 17 minutes, when Matt Frattin would score in the final seconds of UND’s third power play of the evening, sending the teams into the first intermission locked in a 1-1 tie. The second period was all North Dakota. Jason Gregoire sparked a string a three goals in a span of 9:29 when he potted an even-strength goal 5:06 into the stanza. Frattin added his second power-play marker of the evening 5:05 later (10:11) and Gregoire gave the Fighting Sioux a three-goal cushion heading into the third period at the 14:37 mark. Midway through the third period, the Beavers seemed to get a second wind. Sophomore Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) was the benefactor of a hard-nosed play by Jake Areshenko (So., D, Port Coquitlam, British Columbia), who wrestled the puck from a UND player on the corner. Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) fed the puck up the ice to the speedy Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba), who then hit George on the doorstep for a nifty backhand over the shoulder of the North Dakota goaltender Brad Eidsness. But the Fighting Sioux slammed the door on any comeback attempt and reclaimed their three-goal lead when Frattin completed a hat trick at the 18:13 mark. The empty-net goal came with help from Even Trupp. In addition to out shooting the Beavers 38-14 on the evening, UND also held an edge on special teams. The Sioux were 2-of-5 on the power-play, while holding Bemidji State scoreless on four man-advantage opportunities.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (Bemidji Regional Event Center) – Matt Read (Sr., Ilderton, Ontario) and the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team gave No. 2 University of North Dakota all it could handle in front of a capacity crowd Saturday at the Bemidji Regional Event Center, but the battle tested Fighting Sioux outlasted the Beavers to gain a 5-2 victory and complete the series sweep. Despite allowing UND to light the scoreboard first, Bemidji State posted a pair of power-play goals to erase a deficit and build a 2-1 lead early in the second period. However, UND caught the Beavers on their heels late in the period to skate into the third owning a 3-2 lead. A pair of empty-net goals late in the game stretched the UND advantage to three goals, cementing the victory for the Sioux. North Dakota got is power-play unit clicking early. Chay Genoway scored his first goal of the season 8:43 into the game, capitalizing on UND’s second man advantage opportunity. BSU would answer, tying the score at 1-1 before the end of the period as Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) netted his second goal in as many games with help from Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) and Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia). Just 5:46 into the second frame, Read posted the Beavers’ second power-play goal of the evening to put BSU up 2-1, but the advantage would be short-lived. UND got and got goals from Derek Rodwell and Evan Trupp, to take the lead for good. “Nobody likes to lose so if you go in the locker room right now, the guys are disappointed,” said Bemidji State Head Coach Tom Serratore. “They are competitive and wanted to win a hockey game. They feel they can win a hockey game. I don’t think they look at moral victories, but as a coach I want to make sure we are getting better. “We are a better hockey team right now than we were last night at this time and that is one thing I am happy with right now. “[Last night] we had no jump, no energy and we didn’t take care of the puck very well. I think our guys recognized that. Serratore added, “We had a lot of energy tonight, we fore checked well and we moved the puck around on the power-play so our special teams were a factor.” The Beavers finished the game 2-for-6 on the power-play, while holding a potent Fighting Sioux unit to a goal on six opportunities. Crediting a good morning video session and the opportunity to get on the ice and compete in live game situations Friday, Serratore displayed a sense of satisfaction in the way his team performed in the back end of its inaugural Wester Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) series. “I am never happy with a loss, but I am happy with the progress we made.” Another bright spot for the Beavers was the play of Read. “This was the best game Matt Read has played for us,” said Serratore. “I thought tonight Matt was the best player on the ice tonight. He had great depth to his game and played great defensively. The first goal we got, he won a huge face off. The goal he got was a big time goal. He played well on both ends of the ice and he was great on face offs,” added the coach. “All that came against the best team in the country.” On the wrong end of back-to-back 5-2 contests, North Dakota swept the Beavers league series for the first time since Feb. 9-10, 2007 when former College Hockey America (CHA) rival downed the Beavers in consecutive games.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Bemidji Regional Event Center) – The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team battled nationally-ranked University of Minnesota Duluth to overtime and after several legitimate opportunities to earn their first victory at the Bemidji Regional Event Center, seemed poised to escape with at least its first Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) point, but the No. 3 Bulldogs got a goal to steal the game in the waning moments of overtime. “I was very proud of the resiliency our team showed,” commented BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “I thought the first 10 minutes was an extremely one-sided affair. We rebounded, got a couple goals to tie it up and the momentum came back. I thought it was a good toe-to-toe in second period and in the third period I thought we actually carried play. “Good players make good play and Oleksuk had a heck of a nice tip there from Olson on that third goal.” The Beavers were sluggish out of the gates, stymied by a penalty to Jake Areshenko (So., D, Port Coquitlam, British Columbia) just 27 seconds after the drop of the puck. That’s is all that one of the nation’s most potent line ups would need to get on the scoreboard. Mike Connolly scored his seventh goal of the season just 19 seconds later to put UMD up 1-0. For the next eight to nine minutes, the Bulldogs had their way with the Beavers, opening a 14-3 lead in shots on goal and dominating all aspects of play. A Shea Walters (Jr., F, Hibbing, Minn.) five-minute major penalty for contact to the head, opened the door for Minnesota Duluth to build a 2-0 lead. J.T Brown scored the Bulldogs’ second power-play goal of the night at the 10:03 mark, but until Oleksuk found the back of the net in overtime, the goal would serve as the high point of the game for UMD. Momentum began to build for the Beavers as they killed off the rest of the major. Less than two minutes later (15:19) senior captain Matt Read (F, Ilderton, Ontario) cleaned up a rebound off the power-play shot of Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) cut the deficit in half, 2-1. Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) knotted the game at 2-2 at the 16:59 mark on a nifty pass from Lowe to the right post. An evenly played second period was followed by a third period that featured inspired, aggressive play by the Beavers in which they posted a 11-4 edge in shots on goal. Despite multiple legitimate scoring opportunities, the Beavers were unable to convert before the end of the stanza forcing the first overtime period of 2010-11 for either team. BSU again came out as the aggressor in overtime, but when the Bulldog attach breached the BSU defense, Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) was forced to make a play from behind to prevent a clean break away attempt. The junior was whistled for tripping on the play, forcing the Beavers to play a man short for the remainder of the game. Although BSU successfully killed 1:51 of the penalty, Oleksuk redirected a shot from Dylan Olson into the net with just 7.9 seconds remaining in extra time to keep the Bulldogs unbeaten (6-0-1; 3-0-0 WCHA). Aaron Crandall won the goaltender showdown posting 26 saves, while allowing two goal in the win. BSU’s Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) was tagged with the loss despite turning away a season-high 31 shots. The win gives the Bulldogs a 19-9-0 advantage in the all-time series, while it stands as the first over BSU on the Beavers’ home ice since Feb. 26, 2005.

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- (Bemidji Regional Event Center) – No. 3 University of Minnesota Duluth and its goaltender Kenny Reiter kept the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team scoreless for over 58 minutes Saturday, but a late goal from Emil Billberg (Sr., F, Stockholm, Sweden) was all it would take to push the game to overtime and garner the Beavers’ first point as a member of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. “To me, tonight was a very good tie,” commented Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore. “I thought our guys had a gutty, three-minute span from about the seven-minute mark to about the four-minute mark of the third period where we finally applied some sustained pressure and Emil popped that one. So I am very proud of the resiliency of our guys.” Billberg’s goal came at the 58:29 mark of the third period when Drew Fisher (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) won a battle on the boards and chipped the puck out to Dan MacIntyre (Sr., D, Fort Frances, Ontario) who found the native of Sweden streaking towards the net. The Beavers and Bulldogs went toe to toe in a first period that saw UMD post a 10-9 edge in shots on goal, but each goaltender rose to the occasion stopping shot after shot, setting the stage for the remainder of the evening. The Bulldogs caught the first break of the game at the 6:08 mark of the second period when Bemidji State’s Fisher and Brady Wacker (So., D, Jensen, Saskatchewan), who was also issued a 10-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, were each set to the penalty box after being whistled for cross-checking, setting a full two-minute 5-on-3 opportunity for the visitors. Not only did the BSU penalty-kill unit successfully snuff out the UMD power-play opportunity, it also held the Bulldogs without a single shot on next during the span. After 40 minutes of scoreless, well-played hockey, it was the felling of the BSU coaching staff that one goal was all it would take to win the game. So when Justin Faulk scored on the power play to put UMD up 1-0 just 3:51 mark of the third period, the Beavers could have thrown in the towel, but instead, the tally served as a wake up call. The Beavers turned up the intensity and began to generate offense by tightening thier defensive pressure. Ultimately, BSU’s hard-nosed play resulted in a change of possession and Billberg gave the Beavers the break they needed beating Reiter high on a one-timer from the right faceoff dot. In overtime, BSU went on the power-play just 43 second in, but it was UMD that recorded the best scoring opportunities putting two shots on net. Just as in regulation, Mathieu Dugas (So., G, L’Assomption, Quebec) was steady between the pipes for Bemidji State, and would turn away both chances and the teams would settle for the tie. In his first start of the season, Dugas piled up 28 saves, including 10 stops in both the first and the second period, allowing just the third-period power-play goal in 65:00 minutes of play. He moves to 4-2-2 in his career. His counterpart, Reiter, turned away 19 BSU shots and moves to 3-0-2 on the season.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (National Hockey Center) -- Sophomore forward Jordan George recorded a goal and two helpers, while senior captain Matt Read added a goal and assisted on another, but the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team’s first road trip of 2010-11 didn’t get off to the start the team anticipated. Despite climbing to within a goal of the hosting Huskies midway through the third period, 4-3, SCSU added two goals late to separate itself from the Beavers and claim a 6-3 Western Collegiate Hockey Association victory Friday at the National Hockey Center in St. Cloud, Minn. Read put the Beavers up early, taking passes from Jake Areshenko, who logged his first point of the season with an assist on the play, and George before beating the SCSU goaltender, Mike Lee, just 3:11 into the game. But the lead would be short-lived. At the 12:04 mark of the period, Drew LaBlanc ignited a run of four consecutive goals by the Huskies, stretching to the 8:33 mark of the second period, when he scored his second power-play goal of the season. Ben Hanowski gave the Huskies their first lead of the night just three minutes later (15:13) sending SCSU to the first intermission owning a 2-1 lead. The Huskies capitalized with BSU in the penalty box during the second period netting a pair of goals to extend their lead to three goals heading into the final stanza. Hanowski netted his second goal of the night, this time on the powerplay, at the 6:08 mark of the second and Garrett Roe put St. Cloud State up 4-1 just 2:25 later. Sparked by a power-play goal by George in the opening minutes of the third period, his team-leading fourth marker of the season, the Beavers rebounded to within two goals of the Huskies. Ian Lowe continued the BSU comeback with an even-strength marker with 10 minutes to play, pushing the score to 4-3, but the Huskies got a goal from Aaron Marvin 1:24 later to snuff out any hope of a BSU rally. SCSU extended its lead to 6-3 in the closing moments of the game when Hanowski completed his hat trick with an empty-net goal. Out shooting the Beavers 33-26 in the game, St. Cloud State earned the victory with superior special teams play. The Huskies converted three of seven power-play opportunities into goals, while their penalty-kill until stymied three of four Beaver power-play chances. Lee piled up 23 saves in 60:00 minutes gaining the win between the pipes for the Huskies. His counterpart, BSU’s Mathieu Dugas recorded 27 saves, but allowed five goals and was tagged with the loss (0-1-1).

St. Cloud, Minn. -- (National Hockey Center) Held winless though the first five games of the 2010-11 season (0-4-1), a team with the proud history and tradition of Bemidji State University was due for a victory. Saturday at the National Hockey Center in St. Cloud, Minn., it may have taken extra time, but the Beavers got it done earning their first victory as a member of the WCHA, 3-2, over St. Cloud State University. The victory came in typical Beaver Hockey fashion: Hard-nosed play, a stellar effort by the penalty-kill unit and an opportune offensive attack. “I told the guys in the locker room this was the best regular-season win in the history of this program,” commented BSU Head Coach Tom Serratore after the game. “It was the way we did it. We flat out earned this victory. Period.” It was the Beavers’ top line of Jordan George, Matt Read and Ian Lowe that willed the team a win. After Lowe netted the game-tying goal with less than three minutes to play in regulation, the trio again combined to generate the game-winner just 46 seconds into overtime. For the second consecutive night, George, led the team with three points. Saturday, he had a hand in each of the Beavers’ goals posting three assists. The Madison, Wis. native finished the weekend leading the team with 4-5=9 points. Two of his assists came on goals scored by Lowe, which included the game-winner. Read was also credited with a helper on the game’s final goal. For the third time this season, Bemidji State was the first to light the scoreboard and Saturday it took just 44 seconds. With Chris Hepp headed to the penalty box for tripping, BSU senior Emil Billberg recorded his second tally of the season on the delayed penalty. But the lead would be snatched away as quickly as it was initially grabbed. Twenty-nine seconds into the Beavers’ first power play of the evening (1:11), St. Cloud State’s Nick Jensen netted a short-handed goal with help from Aaron Marvin and Travis Novack. After seeing a goal scored for each team during the first 71 seconds of play, the teams played the remainder of the period without a goal and skated into the first intermission tied at 1-1. The Huskies jumped out to a quick 2-1 lead 1:18 into the second period on a goal from Aaron Marvin. The even-strength marker would stand as the only goal of the second period putting the Huskies 20 minutes from what looked like a series sweep. Midway through the third period, BSU was whistled for a pair of minor penalties followed 31 seconds later by another setting the stage for a twominute 5-on-3 opportunity for SCSU. But the BSU penalty-kill unit played water-tight defense for the first 50 minutes and would stand tall again killing the penalties and setting the tone for the remainder of the game. At the 15:32 mark, the Beavers got the break they needed. SCSU’s was whistled for a minor penalty putting the Beavers on the power-play. Fortyseven seconds later, Lowe scored the equalizer with 3:41 left on the clock to set up Bemidji State’s third overtime game of the season. Just 46 seconds after the puck was dropped in extra time, Lowe put a shot past the SCSU goaltender to give BSU the victory. BSU won the special teams battle Saturday and earned the victory because of it. The Beavers were just 1-of-5 on the power-play, but got the goal they needed when it mattered. On the flip side, the Bemidji State penalty-kill was lights out, backstopped by junior goaltender Dan Bakala . The unit stymied all eight SCSU power-play opportunities, including four in the third period alone. Bakala totaled 19 saves in the 60:43 victory allowing two St. Cloud State goals. He improved to 1-3-1 on the season.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Bemidji Regional Event Center) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team scored twice in the first 45 seconds to grab an early 2-0 lead in its first ever meeting with the University of Alaska Anchorage, but the Seawolves rallied for a pair of third-period markers to edge the Beavers, 5-4, Friday at the Sanford Center. Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) scored two goals, including his teamleading fifth of the season to give the Beavers a 3-2 lead midway through the second frame, but UAA responded with three consecutive goals put the Seawolves up 5-3 with 4:40 to play. Despite a goal by Radoslav Illo (Fr., F, Bystrica, Slovakia) late in the period, a comeback was not in the cards for the Beavers and UAA skated off with the one-goal Western Collegiate Hockey Association victory. “It’s a different type of game when you have all that scoring in the first minute and a half,” said Head Coach Tom Serratore. “We had a two goal lead early, but gave one up 45 seconds later and the momentum changed from there.” “Ultimately, the difference in the game was that they out special teamed us 2-1.” The Beavers potted a power-play goal for the third consecutive game, finishing 1-for-4 on the man advantage, but allowed the Seawolves to score on 2-of-4 power-play opportunities, marking the fourth game in 2010-11 that BSU has allowed multiple special teams goals. Just 27 seconds into the game, BSU’s Sam Rendle (Fr., D, Grand Rapids, Minn.) opened the scoring by garnering the first goal of his collegiate career dribbling a rebound off a UAA defender and across the goalline. Fifteen seconds later, Read found the back of the net with help from Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) and Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) to put BSU up 2-0 after just 42 seconds of play. The Seawolves bounced back with a goal at the 1:27 mark when Daniel Naslund pushed the puck five hole on BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta), but the Beavers would cruise into the first intermission owning a 2-1 lead. Alaska Anchorage got its second power-play opportunity of the night at the 2:23 mark of the second period and would need just 55 seconds to capitalize. After an initial save, Matt Bailey stuffed the first of his two power-play tallies on the night across the line at the 3:18 mark knotting the score at 2-2. After a Read goal on the man advantage put the Beavers up 3-2, Sean Wills tied the game, 3-3, on an even-strength goal with 4:49 left in the frame. The Seawolves opened the third period on the man advantage and turned the special teams chance into a goal just 26 seconds in on Bailey’s second marker. Fifteen minutes later, UAA would get the eventual game-winner off the stick of Brett Cameron (15:20). Illo’s goal at the 15:46 mark, the freshman’s first point in the green and white, rejuvenated the Sanford Center crowd and BSU bench, but the big, physical Seawolves packed in their defensive effort in the game’s final minutes and the Beavers’ rally fell short. UAA’s Rob Gunderson posted 26 saves in 59:52 between the pipes, allowing four goals in the victory, while Bakala was tagged with the loss after turning away 18 Alaska Anchorage shots conceding all five UAA goals.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Bemidji Regional Event Center) -- Buoyed by a three-point night from senior captain Matt Read (F, Ilderton, Ontario) and a 16-save shutout by sophomore goaltender Mathieu Dugas (L’Assomption, Quebec), the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team gained a 4-0 victory over University of Alaska Anchorage Saturday at the Bemidji Regional Event Center. The win not only allowed the Beavers to salvage a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series split, it also stood as BSU’s first win over the Seawolves and the inaugural victory in its new hockey home. “This was a good win for us,” commented BSU Head Coach Tom Serraotre. “We really needed a win.” He continued, “I am happy for our fans and I am happy for our guys.” “I thought this was the best game we’ve played this year,” said Read. “Words can’t describe the feeling of finally winning a game after struggling here for the first couple weeks. Knowing that you’ve just out played a team for the whole 60 minutes, playing a great game. Now we know we can do it and want to keep that momentum rolling.” For the second consecutive evening, the Beavers jumped to an early twogoal lead. Read got Bemidji State on the board just 17 seconds into the game. A pair of nifty passes from Jake Areshenko (So., D, Port Cocquitlan, British Columbia) and Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) set Read up with the puck behind the UAA defense and the Ilderton, Ontario native beat the Seawolves’ goaltender Rob Gunderson high from the left face off dot on a tremendous individual effort. Midway through the period (11:19) Jamie MacQueen (Jr., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) put Bemidji State up 2-0 when he redirected a Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) from the point past Gunderson and into the back of the net. After a scoreless second period of play, BSU caught a break in the third when UAA was whistled for a pair of minor penalties just 28 seconds apart (12:27). The Beavers capitalized scoring 1:11 into the 5-on-3 power-play. Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) was the beneficiary of quick perimeter passing by the Beavers as Read and Hunt found the senior in the high slot for a one-timer and Lowe connected for his fourth goal of the season. As the visiting Seawolves pressed to make up some of the deficit, UAA pulled their goalie en leu of an extra attacker, but Read stepped in front of an Alaska Anchorage shot and posted his second marker of the evening to stretch the Beavers’ lead to 4-0 with 3:32 to play. The lead would hold as Dugas denied all eight of UAA’s third period scoring opportunities to preserve the victory and collect the second shutout of his collegiate career. The Beavers finished the night scoring on one of three power-play opportunities, while their penalty-kill unit held the Seawolves scoreless on five chances on the man advantage. Bemidji State (2-5-1; 2-5-1 WCHA) is back in action next week as it heads west for a series a University of Denver (6-4-2; 5-2-1 WCHA). The inaugural WCHA game between the teams is set for 8:37 p.m. at Magness Arena in Denver, Colo.

DENVER (Magness Arena) -- Despite a stout defensive effort, solid goaltending an early goal by freshman defenseman Sam Rendle (Grand Rapids, Minn.), the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team was unable to hold on for a victory Friday at the University of Denver. The Beavers allowed an even-strength goal each period, which included an empty-net marker late, dropping the Western Collegiate Hockey Association series opener, 3-1, at Magness Arena in Denver. For the sixth time in nine outings, BSU was the first to light the scoreboard and tonight it was Rendle who drew first blood. Senior forward Ryan Cramer (International Falls, Minn.) turned a DU attempted line change into a 3-on-1 opportunity for the Beavers. Jamie MacQueen (Jr., F., St. Thomas, Ontario) rang a shot of the pipe to cap the rush and the freshman defender corralled the rebound in the slot and netted his second goal of the season to put BSU up 1-0 at the 7:54 mark. Despite outplaying the Pioneers and controlling the puck for a majority of the first period, DU out shot the Beavers 7-2 and at the 16:25 mark, Matt Donovan evened the score. David Makowski found the blueliner with a drop pass in the high slot and Donovan fired a seeing-eye shot through traffic that snuck past BSU’s goaltender Mathieu Dugas (So., G, L’Assomtion, Quebec). After skating though most of the second period locked in the 1-1 tie, Jason Zucker scored giving the Pioneers their first lead of the evening at the 17:05 mark. Drew Shore got the play started winning a face off in the Pioneers’ offensive zone. He then dug the puck out of a scrum on the boards and found Donovan. The blueliner fired a shot on net and Zucker tipped, what would stand as the eventual game-winner, passed Dugas for his team-leading eighth goal of 2010-11. Opening the third frame trailing by one, 2-1, the Bemidji State penalty-kill unit was tested early and often. BSU was whistled for three penalties setting the Pioneers up with six minutes of 5-on-4 play, but for the second consecutive game, and the third time in four outings, BSU held its opponent scoreless on the man advantage not only snuffing out all three of DU’s third period opportunities, but finishing the game 5-for-5 on the penalty-kill. The Beavers had a flurry of scoring opportunities in the third period despite being out shot 12-5 in the frame. Running out of time, the Beavers got the break they needed when DU’s John Ryder was sent to the penalty box for holding, setting the Beavers up with their second power-play opportunity of the contest with 3:24 on the clock. The Beavers lost the ensuing face off and struggled to gain control of the puck for the first half of the power-play chance, but during the last 40 seconds, had the Pioneers scrambling and racked up four quality scoring opportunities. With 1:30 to go, BSU pulled its goaltender to get an extra attacker on the ice, but with 27 seconds to go, Denver would put the game away on a Luke Salazar empty-net goal. Brittian was credited with the win, allowing just one goal in 60:00 minutes of play. He improves to 6-3-1 on the season. BSU’s Dugas was tagged with the loss, conceding two goals, while turning away 26 Pioneer shots in 58:57 between the pipes. His 2010-11 record falls to 1-2-1.

DENVER (Magness Arena) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team battled back from an early 1-0 deficit to hold a one-goal lead at the conclusion of the first period, but a pair of rebound goals by No. 14 University of Denver vaulted the Pioneers past BSU, 4-2, Saturday at Magness Arena in Denver, Colo. After a 3-1 victory Friday, the win allowed DU to complete the series sweep of the Beavers marking the first time BSU has been swept in a road series since Jan. 16-17, 2009 at the University of Minnesota Duluth. “Tonight was very disappointing,” commented head coach Tom Serratore. “They are a good hockey team, we all know that, but we had a 2-1 lead and we it get away.” Denver got the scoring started at the 4:59 mark of the first period. With defenseman Dan MacIntyre (Fort Frances, Ontario) in the penalty box for tripping, DU’s David Makowski made the Beavers pay on the Pioneers’ first power-play opportunity of the game. With assists from Luke Salazar and Drew Shore, Makowski fired a shot from the point that found its way into the back of the net to put DU up 1-0. But Bemidji State got the spark it needed with just under three minutes left in the first, when Chris Knowlton was called for elbowing. Serratore pulled goaltender Mathieu Dugas (L’Assomption, Quebec) for an extra attacker and the move paid off. At the 17:47 mark Sam Rendle (Fr., D, Grand Rapids, Minn.) took a centering pass from Shea Walters (Jr., F, Hibbing, Minn.) and scored an extra attacker goal from the slot. Senior captain and BSU’s leading scorer Matt Read (Ilderton, Ontario) was also credited with an assist on the play. Although the Beavers evened the score at 1-1, the penalty on Knowlton set BSU up for a power-play with 2:13 left in the frame. It would take just 41 seconds for the Beavers to grab their first lead of the evening. On a tremendous display of passing and patience, Bemidji State got a pass from Emil Billberg (Sr., F, Stockholm, Sweden) out of the corner that was centered by Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) and Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) connected one-timer from the top of the crease to account for a BSU power-play goal. In a second period that saw each team go on the man advantage on two occasions, the only goal of the frame came with 1:23 remaining and both teams at full strength. DU’s Paul Phillips fired a shot on goal that was initially turned away by Dugas, but the BSU goaltender lost the puck and the rebound was flipped over his shoulder for Nick Shore’s first goal of the season. The tally knotted the score at 2-2 setting up a third period, 20-minute chase for the win. Anthony Maiani put the Pioneers up 3-2 at the 7:10 mark of the third corralling a rebound off the shot of Nick Shore and putting it past Dugas. The goal would stand as the game winner. With 1:18 left in the game, Bemidji State again pulled its goaltender for an extra attacker. The Beavers got a couple good looks at the net, but in an effort to clear the puck out of the zone, DU’s Jason Zucker fired the puck the length of the ice and buried an empty-net goal to solidify the 4-2 win and complete the series sweep. With the win, Denver extends its lead in the series to 7-0-0 and is a perfect 6-0-0 when hosting the Beavers.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Bemidji Regional Event Center) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team opened nonconference play Friday hosting Northern Michigan University at the Bemidji Regional Event Center. The Wildcats (6-6-2) stymied the Beavers’ offensive attack as goaltender Reid Ellingson turned away 37 shots to lead NMU to a 4-0 victory over the Beavers. Tied 0-0 through 17:30 of play, the Wildcats’ C.J. Ludwig was whistled for cross-checking penalty to set the Beavers up with their second power-play opportunity of the evening, but instead of giving BSU the spark it needed to take a lead into the first intermission, Bemidji State failed to record a shot on net and NMU took advantage of getting their skater back on the ice as Nicholas Kosinski took a pass from Ludwig and scored 12 seconds after the penalty had expired. “This was a disappointing loss. We gave up the first two goals and that made it tough,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “We had a few defensive breakdowns and one at the end of the power-play [in the first period] where our defenseman got trapped and we gave up a 2-on-1. You just can’t give up a goal with 18 seconds to go in a period. If you go into the locker room 0-0 its a just totally different game and the mind set is totally different.” NMU built a 2-0 lead with an even-strength marker at the 3:41 mark of the second period. Justin Florek led a 2-on-3 rush and fired a slapshot from the top of the left face off circle. While BSU goaltender Mathieu Dugas (So., L’Assomption, Quebec) kicked the attempt aside, the puck went right onto the stick of Phil Fox in the slot and he buried a wrister. Entering the third trailing the visiting Wildcats by two goals, the Beavers needed to generate offense early jump back into the game and get the 3,505 back on their side. Instead, NMU’s lead would grow to 3-0 just 2:11 into the frame. Erik Higby corralled a rebound off a Stephan Vigier shot and potted his second gaol of the season. Serratore pulled Dugas with just under three minutes to play in an attempt to shrink the deficit, but when Mike Maltese tipped a BSU pass out of the zone, NMU’s top scorer Tyler Gron won a footrace to the puck and got an empty-net tally with 1:34 to play to erase any BSU thoughts of a comeback. Special teams play was a non-factor in the game. NMU snuffed out all three of BSU’s power-play chances, while the BSU penalty-kill unit not only held the Wildcats scoreless on three opportunities, it allowed just one shot on net in six minutes of penalty time. Falling to 1-4-1 on the season, Dugas finished with 21 saves in 58:52 between the pipes. The win marks the first time Northern Michigan’s first versus the Beavers and evens the series at 1-1-1. The shutout not only stands as the first time the Beavers have been blanked this season, it is the first time the team has been held scoreless at home since Minnesota State University earned a 1-0 victory over the Beavers at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse Dec. 15, 2007.

(Bemidji Regional Event Center) -- Goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta) collected 17 saves and senior forwards Emil Billberg (Stockholm, Sweden) and Ian Lowe (Bradwardine, Manitoba) each posted a goal and an assist as the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team blanked Northern Michigan University, 4-0, to salvage a nonconference series split at the Bemidji Regional Event Center Saturday. “I thought tonight was a 60-minute effort for our team,” said BSU Head Coach Tom Serratore. “I was very proud of the way the guys came out on the first two shifts. I think we had a lot of energy and that set the tone for the whole game.” Although the Beavers failed to record a goal during the opening 20 minutes of the contest, they enforced a fast-paced, physical style of play that would wear the Wildcats down as the game progressed. Bemidji State began to reap the benefits of its high-motor play in the second period. The Beavers out shot NMU 19-3 in the stanza, had three powerplay opportunities and exited the frame with a 2-0 lead. Billberg, who was inserted on the wing of BSU’s top line Saturday, got the Beavers on the board just 94 seconds into the period. Alternate captain Ryan Adams (Sr., D, Deloraine, Manitoba) won a battle in the corner and made a pass out of the Wildcats’ zone to Lowe. The senior forward skated the puck into the offensive zone and fired a shot from right face-off circle that was kicked out by NMU goaltender Reid Ellingson directly to Billberg who was on the doorstep an deposited the puck into a virtually open net. The goal, which would stand as the game-winner, was all the offense the Beavers would need as Bakala and BSU’s team defense shut down Northern Michigan. In addition to Bakala’s 17 saves, BSU limited the Wildcats’ offensive chances will good puck pressure and blocked 10 shots. Midway though the period, the Beavers’ would see their lead swell to 2-0 as BSU would capitalize on its second power-play opportunity of the evening. With C.J. Ludwig in the penalty box for tripping, Scott Macaulay was booked for high sticking at the 12:33 setting up a 57-second 5-on-3 chance. Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) and the Beavers’ power-play unit would need just 24 seconds to see their lead swell to 2-0. Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) and Billberg were credited with assists on the play as Hunt unleashed a shot from the point that deflected off Billberg onto the stick of George who potted his fifth goal of the season. Lowe added an insurance goal, 3-0, with just 46 seconds to play in the game when he picked up an errant pass in the neutral zone and made NMU pay for pulling their goaltender. Holding the Wildcats scoreless on both of their power-play opportunities, the Beavers’ penalty-kill unit completed the weekend snuffing out all six of their power-play chances, while the team’s power-play crew was 1-for-5 on the man advantage Saturday and 1-for-8 on the weekend. Bakala, improved to 2-4-0 on the season posting the fourth shutout of his career. Ellingson made 34 saves in 58:53 between the pipes for NMU. He falls to 4-5-1 in 2010-11. Three of the four games in the history of the BSU/NMU series have been shutouts.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team got a 25-save shutout from goaltender Dan Bakala, while sophomore Jake Areshenko netted his first collegiate goal to push the Beavers past No. 4 University of Nebraska Omaha Friday at the Sanford Center. BSU got scoring contributions from nine players, while solid team defense, good puck pressure and a water-tight penalty-kill unit held Maverick offense, averaging over 4.5 goals per game scoreless on six power-play opportunities. “This was the best game we’ve played this year,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “We played 60 minutes, we played very well defensively and we had our share of offense so overall I could not be happier.” Bemidji State set the tone early getting an extra-attacker goal by Areshenko. When UNO’s Pasko Skarica got caught holding a BSU skater midway through the first period, the Beavers saw a chance to get an extra skater on the ice. Brad Hunt dug the puck out of the corner and got it to Jamie MacQueen who circled the zone before firing on net. Areshenko tipped the puck through goaltender John Faulkner’s five hole from his post just outside the crease. The goal turned out to be all the offense BSU would need as the BSU defense blocked 18 shots limiting UNO’s quality opportunities and as the Beavers’ last line of defense, Bakala was flawless. “I think we came to play tonight and they just weren’t ready for us in the first period,” commented senior forward Ian Lowe. “We played a full 60 minutes and I think we out played them tonight.” “[Bakala] stood on his head tonight,” added Areshenko. “Even in the third period he was flying all over the net making saves. It was big time.” Bakala’s 25-save night was highlighted by a third period in which the junior faced a flurry of UNO shots, piling up 12 stops in the final frame alone to post his fifth career shutout. After blanking opponents in his last two starts, Bakala has not allowed a goal in his last 124:40 between the pipes dating back to Nov. 12. He improves to 3-4-0 on the season. Leading 1-0, the Beavers were tested early in the second. Just 18 seconds into the frame, BSU lost its top defenseman in Hunt. The junior was assessed a five-minute major penalty and game misconduct for checking from behind, to put the Mavericks on the power-play for the second time. But it would get worst for BSU. Struggling to kill off the major, Matt Read was sent to the box for hooking, serving up the UNO power-play unit with more than 60 seconds of 5-on-3. But the BSU penalty-killers would stand tall igniting the 3,291 in attendance and fueling a second BSU goal. Lowe accounted for his seventh goal of the season at the 6:25 mark of the second stanza. The senior displayed tremendous drive as he was denied on his first shot from the slot before crashing the net and stuffing the puck past the UNO goaltender. The Beavers’ lead grew to 3-0 at the 8:32 mark of the third period when Emil Billberg scored his fourth goal of the season to put the game out of reach. The solid play of BSU’s special teams gave the Beavers boost again tonight. In addition to posting a power-play goal in the second period, the BSU penaltykill unit allowed just three shots on six UNO man advantage opportunities. Despite taking the loss, UNO continues to hold an edge in the all-time series 5-2-0.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- Down 1-0 to No. 4 University of Nebraska Omaha after nearly two periods of play, the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team used a power-play goal by Ian Lowe with 0.7 left in the second as a springboard to a 3-1 victory and its first Western Collegiate Hockey Association series sweep Saturday at the Sanford Center. “It definitely feels great,” commented sophomore forward Aaron McLeod, who was responsible for the game-winning goal. “Nebraska Omaha is one of the top teams in the nation right now so its definitely good to get two wins off of them.” He added, “I thought we executed well in the last 10 minutes of the second period and then going into the third period we continued to skate and we got the win which was huge.” “We needed to start establishing ourselves at home. We really dug a hole for ourselves at home during the first half of the year,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “We weren’t necessarily coming into the weekend looking to sweep, we just wanted to play good hockey. That is what it is all about. “The fans saw 120 minutes of not only great Beaver hockey, but exciting hockey this weekend. It was WCHA hockey at its finest.” Serratore continued, “The pace was great, there were a lot of great players on the ice, there were plays being made and it was physical.” The Mavericks drew first blood when Johnnie Searfoss fired an odd-angle shot from the goal line extend and the puck bounced off BSU goaltender Dan Bakala’s right shoulder before finding the back of the net. The goal snapped a streak of 134:14 flawless play between the pipes for Bakala, stretching back to Nov. 12, but that was all the Mavericks’ top-ranked offensive attack would manage as the junior netminder buckled down and turned away 39 UNO shots in 60:00 minutes of play to even his record at 4-4-0 on the season. Bemidji State played from behind for most of the second period and had a pair of unsuccessful power-play opportunities early, but when UNO’s Eric Olimb was whistled for high-sticking with just 1:14 left in the frame, it would provide the Beavers with the spark they needed to jump back into the game. BSU’s leading scorer Jordan George skated the puck into the zone with just seconds to go, he centered the puck to Matt Read in the slot who redirected the pass to Lowe who was on the doorstep to tap the puck into the net with less than a second remaining in the stanza to send the Beavers to the locker room with the score knotted 1-1. Sophomore forward Aaron McLeod scored the go ahead goal in the third after he intercepted a outlet pass from a UNO defender in the near corner and fired a shot from the left face off dot for his first goal of the season. BSU would manufacture another goal with just over four minutes to play (15:31) and the Beavers would ride the momentum and the emotion of the 3,737 in attendance to the two-goal victory. BSU’s special teams play was on target again. In addition to the power-play goal, BSU’s penalty-kill unit held the Mavericks scoreless on three man advantage opportunities. Bemidji State has not allowed a power-play goal in seven of its last nine games and is riding a streak of 33:33 of penalty time without allowing a goal. Although the Beavers earned the sweep, UNO continues to hold an edge in the all-time series 5-3-0, but the Beavers have gained victories in three of the last four meetings with the Mavericks.

MADISON, Wis. (Kohl Center) -- Up 2-0 after just 2:30 of play Friday at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wis., the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team saw the University of Wisconsin score three unanswered goals, one in each period, to gain a 3-2 victory and snap the team’s wining streak at three games. The Beavers jumped out to a lead just 2:01 after the drop of the puck. UW’s Jordy Murray was called for interference, but before the Badgers could gain control of the puck, BSU skated an extra attacker onto the ice and Radoslav Illo (Fr., F, Bystrica, Slovakia) took passes from Dan MacIntyre (Sr., D, Fort Frances, Ontario) and Shea Walters (Jr., F, Hibbing, Minn.) and flipped a backhand over the Wisconsin goaltender Scott Gudmandson and into the net. With Murray in the penalty box it took the Beavers just 29 seconds to build a two-goal lead, 2-0. In his first collegiate visit to his hometown, Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) got his friends and family on their feet when he netted a power-play goal from Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) and the Beavers’ Division I-era all-time leading scorer Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario), who pulled ahead of Luke Erickson (2003-07) with the helper. But the celebration was short-lived. The Badgers cut the lead in half, 2-1, before the end of the first period. Craig Smith capitalized on a penalty to Read at the 12:16 mark as he netted the first power-play goal allowed by BSU in 37:46 of penalty time--a streak stretching 20 opponent opportunities in six games since Nov. 20. Despite being out played for most of the second period, and out shot 7-1 in the first 10 minutes of the frame, the Badgers got the only goal of the session setting up a 20 minute race to the victory. Pogde Turnbull knotted the game at 2-2 with an even-strength marker on a wrist shot from the blue line that went off the fingertips of BSU netminder Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) at the 12:12 mark. The goal would stand as the fulcrum point of the game as momentum would swing in favor of Wisconsin. The Badgers caught a break with 2:32 to play in the period when Walters was whistled for a five-minute checking from behind penalty, serving the nation’s second-ranked power-play up with a five-minute man advantage. BSU snuffed out the first 2:33 of penalty-time before the end of the second, but the Badgers still have over two minutes on the man advantage to open the third period. The Beavers would kill off the rest of major, but before the BSU player escape the box and get back into play, and with Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) just 30 seconds into interference penalty, Smith would net his second power-play goal of the night to give the Badgers a 3-2 lead. From that point, UW packed it in limiting Bemidji State’s quality looks. Gudmandson and the Badgers held off a late BSU charge as the Beavers elected to pull Bakala late, but Bemidji State was unable to find the net and dropped the first half of the series by one goal, 3-2. Wisconsin tallied a pair of goals on five (2-5) power-play opportunities, while it held BSU to one marker on three (1-3) chances on the man advantage. Gudmandson turned away 25 BSU shots and allowed two goals in 60 minutes between the pipes to improve to 6-5-1 on the season, while Bakala made 25 saves in 58:39 in net, but conceded three goals, saw his personal three-game winning streak in net come to an end and fell to 4-5-0 in 2010-11.

MADISON, Wis. (Kohl Center) -- After scoring two goals in the first 2:30 of the series, the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team was held without a goal for the remaining 117:30 of its time in Madison, Wis., which included a 2-0 shutout loss to the University of Wisconsin Saturday at the Kohl Center. The Badgers used an even-strength goal in the final seconds of the first period to gain firm control of the momentum and would ride it into the third frame where it added an insurance goal to complete the series sweep and send Beavers to the holiday break with a 5-10-1 record overall and a 4-9-1 record in Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) play. Wisconsin gained the first lead of the game late in the first period. A BSU turnover on the blue line resulted in a 3-on-2 situation for the Badgers an they took advantage of the situation. In the end the trailer, Justin Schultz, found Michael Mersch on the right post with a back door pass and Mersch tapped his seventh goal of the season into the virtually open net. The teams would play through the second period without managing to change the score although Wisconsin held a 17-12 edge on the shot board through two periods. Leading 1-0 midway through the third (13:08), the Badgers got the benefit of a bouncing puck from Podge Turnbull to take a 2-0 lead and change the completion of the game. BSU pulled goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta) with just under three minutes to go, but was unable to hold the puck in their offensive zone long enough to benefit from the extra attacker or generate any serious scoring opportunities. A night after power-play goals were the difference, special teams play did not play a role in tonight’s contest. The BSU penalty-kill unit held UW scoreless on three man advantage opportunities, while BSU failed to convert on its two power-play chances. Bakala was tagged with the loss after allowing two Badger goals. He junior turned away 23 shots in 57:51 of play and falls to 4-6-0 on the season. Wisconsin netminder Scott Gudmandson piled up 21 saves en route to posting the second shutout of BSU this season. He improves to 7-5-1. The win gives the Badgers a 3-0-0 edge in the all-time series and a 2-0-0 edge in games played in Madison, Wis. In the three games BSU has now logged versus the Badgers, they have managed just two goal and both came in the span of 29 seconds of last night’s series-opener.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (Mariucci Arena) -- Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) was nearly flawless, making 35 saves on 37 shots, and saw teammates Matt Carlson (So., D, Grand Forks, N.D.) and Drew Fisher (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) net the first goal of their respective collegiate careers as the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team opened the Mariucci Classic with a 3-2 victory over Ferris State University (9-8-3) Friday afternoon. Returning from a two week layoff, the Beavers showed no signs of rust, getting a great goaltending effort and a nice wave of secondary scoring to earn the one-goal, non-conference win on the Olympic ice of Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis, Minn. BSU struck first. Carlson, who was trailing on the play, crashed the net from the point, took the a wide shot off the end boards and slid it past an out of position goaltender for his first collegiate goal. After a second look by the officiating crew, the sophomore was awarded the tally and assists were credited to Emil Billberg (Sr., F, Stockholm, Sweden) and Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) on the play. The marker stood as the first since for BSU since the first period of the Dec. 10 contest at University of Wisconsin--snapping a scoreless streak stretching 127:14. Bemidji State took the 1-0 lead into the first intermission. With the teams playing 4-on-4 midway through the second period (10:32), the Beavers’ lead grew to 2-0 on a tremendous display of individual skill by Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.). The sophomore took a pass from Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia), shook a pair of Bulldog defenseman and got a shot on goal from the slot. Taylor Nelson kicked the intitial attempt away, but directed it right to the tape of George who would not be denied again and buried a backhand for his team-leading eight goal of the year. After being out shot 9-4 in the first period, the Beavers turned the tables on FSU in the second out shooting the Bulldogs 13-9 to trail 18-17 on the shot board, but lead 2-0 where it mattered--on the scoreboard--after 40 minutes of play. Ferris State came out of the second intermission with something to prove. The Bulldogs recorded the first five shots of the period and got a deflection off the stick of Aaron Schmit at the 1:44 mark to cut the Beavers’ lead in half, 2-1. Bemidji State bounced back to reclaim a two-goal cushion just 63 seconds later (2:47). Darcy Findlay (Jr., F, Bristol, Quebec) dug the puck out from behind the Beavers’ goal and stretched a pass across the rink, off the boards ahead to Brance Orban (So., F, Lethbridge, Alberta). Orban found Fisher in front of the net and the International Falls, Minn. native’s first collegiate goal would stand as the eventual game-winner. Dominating play in the third period, out shooting BSU 19-5 in the frame, the Bulldogs made it interesting getting an extra-attacker goal with 1:01 left in the game. Jordie Johnson got a shot off through traffic that hit Bakala’s shoulder and rolled over into the net, but that was all FSU would manage as BSU regrouped and weathered the last 60 seconds to claim the victory. Bakala’s 35-save, 60-minute performance, which included 17 stops in the third period alone, was good enough to lift his 2010-11 record to 5-6-0 on the season. Despite each team being whistled for three penalties, each team was 0-for-1 on the power-play and special teams figured little into the final outcome. Despite taking the loss, the Bulldogs own a 5-4-0 advantage in the all-time series with BSU, but the Beavers have now won four of the last six meetings between the teams.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (Mariucci Arena) -- Matt Read scored two goals, while Dan Bakala turned away 30 of 31 shots to lead the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team to a 3-1 victory over No. 14 Union College Saturday at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis, Minn. The victory came on the heels of a 3-2 win over Ferris State University Friday and earned the Beavers the 2010-11 Mariucci Classic title. “Its always nice to win a championship and get some hardware,” said BSU Head Coach Tom Serratore. “We played a good third period and I guess that was the most gratifying thing to me.” Just 24 hours removed from allowing its first round opponent, Ferris State University, a pair of third period goals and let a 2-0 lead slip to 3-2 3-2 lead with just 61 seconds to play, Bemidji State buckled down in the final frame this afternoon. The team killed two penalties late and defended en extended extra attacker situation to protect a 3-1 lead and escape with a two goal victory. For the 11th time in Bemidji State’s 18 games of 2010-11, the Beavers were first to score and for the sixth time this season, BSU has scored on its first shot on net. Just 5:27 after the opening face off, Read gathered the puck behind the net, skated around the left circle and fired a shot from the high slot to put the Beavers up 1-0. Ian Lowe and Sam Rendle were credited with assists on the senior’s eighth goal of the season. But an offense averaging 3.72 goals per game can only be held at bay for so long and the Dutchmen bounced back to even the score, 1-1, before the first period concluded. Daniel Carr flipped an unassisted shot over the shoulder of Bakala with just 11 seconds remaining on UC’s second power-play opportunity of the game. Despite being out shot 20-11 after 40 minutes of play, BSU took a 2-1 lead into the locker rooms at the second intermission. Rendle recorded the first multi-point effort of his collegiate career as he contributed to the Beavers’ second goal of the afternoon. The freshman defender stepped in front of a Union centering pass before starting the scoring play with a rink-wide pass to George. The Madison, Wis. native then carried the puck into the zone, skated to a stop in the slot and deposited a shot low on the stick-side of the net. The Beavers dominated play to open the third period and lit the lamp at the 1:58 mark to stretch their lead to 3-1. A Union penalty just 1:21 into the fame served up a man advantage opportunity for Read and a BSU power-play unit seeking its first special teams marker in more than 10 periods of play. BSU’s captain took advantage threading a shortside shot high past Keith Kinkaid for his second goal of the game. In addition to providing BSU with some insurance, the marker gave Read his team-high third multi-goal game of the season. For the second straight game, Bakala made 30-or-more saves and improved to 6-6-0 on the season with the victory. In 60 minutes between the pipes, the junior turned away 30-of-31 Dutchmen scoring attempts and backstopped a penalty-kill unit that snuffed out 4-of-5 power-play chances of a special teams unit that came into the game leading the nation by scoring on 34 percent of is man advantage opportunities. The win is the first for BSU over Union in six all-time meetings, while Union continues to own a 2-1-3 advantage in the series that got its start during the 2000-01 campaign.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Von Braun Center) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team got two goals from Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) for the second straight game and freshman Kyle Brodie (D, Northglenn, Colo.) netted his first collegiate goal as the Beavers saw their current winning streak grow to three Friday with a 3-1 victory over the University of Alabama-Huntsville at Von Braun Arena. Trailing for more than 30 minutes and tied into the final five minutes of the game, the Beavers had their hands full from the opening face off to the final horn, but with just over four minutes to go, Brodie’s weak side goal that made the difference for the Beavers and allowed the team to improve to 8-10-1 on the season. Despite leading the Chargers 9-4 in shots on goal in the first period, the Beavers trailed UAH 1-0 after 20 minutes of play. Joey Koudys scored his third goal of the season at the 6:30 mark directly off a face-off win by Jamie Easton, who was credited with the assist. But the as time expired on the frame, Easton was whistled for an elbowing penalty giving the Beavers a one-man advantage as the second period got underway. But the Beavers were unable to capitalize on their first power-play opportunity of the evening. Bemidji State opened the second period on a flurry of unanswered shots and with 8:36 left, Read broke the seal on the gaol and evened the score at 1-1 with a low, glove-side shot from the face-off circle. Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) and Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia), who lead the team with 12 assists a piece, contributed to the scoring with assists on the play. BSU continued to control play to open the third, but when the Beavers would come up dry on a pair of power-play opportunities, it looked as though it would not be their night. However, a Chargers’ turnover picked up by Shea Walters (Jr., F, Hibbing, Minn.) would spark a play in the Beavers’ offensive end that reversed BSU’s fortune. Aaron McLeod (So., F, Ottawa, Ontario) and Radoslav Illo (Fr., F, Bystrica, Slovakia) found Brodie, who was playing in just his second game of the season, on the weak side for the game-changing goal at the 15:20 mark. Although they owned a 2-1 lead, things got interesting for the Beavers down the stretch. With just 1:20 left on the clock, senior forward Emil Billberg (Stockholm, Sweden) put UAH on the power play for the remainder of the game when he was sent to the penalty box for holding, but Read would come through with the Beavers’ first short-handed goal of the season to ice the game, 3-1, at the 19:35 mark. BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) improved to 7-6-0 on the season allowing just one goal, while turning aside 16 UAH shots in 59:44 of action. In addition, the goaltender was credited with his second assist of the season on Read’s goal late. Bakala has now won his last three starts and is 6-20 with a 1.26 goals against average and a .952 save percentage since Nov. 27. Unbeaten by the Chargers in 13 games (12-0-1), the win gives the Beavers a 36-27-4 advantage in the all-time series.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- (Von Braun Center) -- Matt Baxter scored twice to lead a trio of Chargers with three points as the University of Alabama-Huntsville men’s ice hockey team defeated Bemidji State University, 4-3, Saturday at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Ala. The one-goal victory not only earn a non-conference split for UAH, it marked the first time the Chargers have posted a win over the Beavers since Nov. 7, 2008. A BSU penalty-kill unit that had allowed just four power-play goals in its last 12 games (4-of-47), conceded three to the Chargers Saturday. Ala.-Huntsville capitalized on a its first two man advantage opportunities of the evening to take a 2-0 lead less than 15 minutes into the game and the Beavers would never recover. Baxter opened the scoring at the 9:06 mark, just 52 seconds into UAH’s first man advantage chance of the evening and would never relinquish the lead. Mac Roy and Jamie Easton were credited with assists on the play. Six minutes later, the Chargers’ lead swelled to 2-0 when Roy converted a BSU penalty into a power-play goal just six seconds after senior Ryan Adams (D, Deloraine, Manitoba) was escorted to the penalty box for interference. With 20 minutes of play in the books, the Chargers owned a 14-9 advantage in shots on goal and were up 2-0. BSU cut their deficit in half, scoring the only goal of the second frame. Emil Billberg (Sr., F, Stockholm, Sweden) potted his career-high fifth goal of the season at the 16:29 mark with help from Brady Wacker (So., D, Jansen, Saskatchewan) and linemate Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario). The Beavers opened the third with Ala.-Huntsville well within reach, but by the eight-minute mark, UAH scored twice to open up a three-goal lead, 4-1. In addition, to Baxter’s second power-play tally of the afternoon just 50 seconds into the stanza, Keenan Desmet posted Ala.-Huntsville’s only six-on-six goal at the 7:37 mark. Aaron McLeod (So., F, Ottawa, Ontario) trimmed UAH’s lead to two goals, 4-2, ten seconds later. With under five minutes to play, Read scored his second short-handed goal of the season, but that was close as BSU would come as time would run out on the Beavers’ comeback despite peppering the Chargers’ goaltender with 15 shots in the final 20 minutes. Special teams play was the difference in the one-goal game. UAH finished scoring on 3-of-5 power-play chances, while despite netting a short-handed goal for the second straight night, the Beavers’ special teams units failed to net a goal on two man advantage opportunities. Clark Sanders collected 32 saves in net for the Chargers and allowed three goals, while picking up his third win of the season. On the other end of the ice, Mathieu Dugas (So., G, L’Assomption, Quebec), who made his first start since Nov. 26, turned away 21 shots and fell to 1-4-1 on the season after allowing four UAH goals. Despite taking the loss, the Beavers continue to hold a 36-28-4 advantage in the all-time series and since Mar. 3, 2006, BSU is a dominant 23-3-2.

OMAHA, Neb. (Quest Center Omaha) -- Senior Ryan Cramer (F, International Falls, Minn.) recorded his first goal of the season along with an assist to figure in on both BSU goals as the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team battled back to gain a 2-2 tie versus No. 10 University Nebraska Omaha Friday at the Quest Center Omaha. Cramer’s goal with 3:58 left in the second period erased a BSU deficit and put the Beavers in position to gain a WCHA point. The Beavers were first to light the scoreboard, taking a 1-0 lead just 6:14 into the game. Cramer started the play with a backhanded centering pass from deep in the zone. The pass ended up on the stick of rookie Radoslav Illo (F, Bystrica, Slovakia), who tucked the shot passed the Maverick goaltender John Falkner. UNO battled back to knot the score at 1-1 before the period expired. With 6:38 left in the frame, UNO’s leading scorer Matt Ambroz took advantage of a Rich Purslow rebound kicked aside by Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta). The senior collected the puck on the right post and as he was being pushed beyond the goal line, he flicked a shot back towards the crease and deflected off Bakala and into the back of the net. Eric Olimb was also credited with an assist on the play. With 3:29 left in the frame, Tony Turgeon was whistled for contact to the head, took and early exit and set the Beavers up with a power-play opportunity for the remainder of the first and the first 91 seconds of the second period. The Mavericks’ penalty-kill stood tall on the major penalty killing all five minutes to keep the score 1-1. An Emil Billberg (Sr., F, Stockholm, Sweden) hooking infraction at the 6:40 mark of the second gave UNO its fourth chance on the man advantage and the Mavericks converted. Just 15 seconds into the penalty, the trio of Ambroz, Purslow and Olimb combined for a power-play goal to give the home team the lead, 2-1. The Beavers were out played for a large portion of the second period and were out shot 8-4 in the stanza, but BSU made good on one of four shots on net to keep the score even after 40 minutes of play. The Beavers came back to tie the game, 2-2 just over 16 minutes into the second stanza. Aaron McLeod (So., F, Ottawa, Ontario) started the play by corralling the puck behind the Beavers’ goal before hitting Cramer with a long pass up the center of the rink. Cramer then got a step on the UNO defensive pair and flipped a backhand top shelf for his first goal since Mar. 13, 2010. Each team bucked down in the third period and despite a total of 20 shots on net, 10 for each team, the score remained locked 2-2 and for the fourth time of the 2010-11 season the Beavers needed extra time to decide the game. BSU failed to record a shot on net in the overtime period, but Bakala turned away both Maverick attempts to come out of the game with a 2-2 tie and a point in the WCHA standings. Bakala finished the game with 30 saves, while conceding both UNO goals in 65:00 minutes. His record moves to 7-6-1 on the season, while he has been unbeaten in seven of his last nine starts (6-2-1). Falkner, now 12-6-2, stopped 24 shots in the tie. For the third straight game, the BSU power-play unit was held scoreless (0-for-2), while its penalty-kill unit allowed a UNO goal on five man advantage opportunities.

OMAHA, Neb. (Quest Center Omaha) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team needed extra time for the second consecutive night, but a Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) goal 52 seconds into the extra frame spared the Beavers from back-to-back stalemates with No. 10 University of Nebraska Omaha. The senior’s second goal of the evening gave BSU a 3-2 victory over the Mavericks at Quest Center Omaha, where UNO was 7-1-0 coming into the series, and allowed the Beavers to escape holding three of four points from the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) series. Read scored twice and Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) added a pair of assists to propel BSU to its fourth victory over a nationally-ranked opponent this season (4-5-2) as the Beavers improved to 9-11-2 overall and 5-9-2 in the WCHA. The Beavers, who put UNO on the power-play four times and were out shot 14-8, including the first eight shots of the game, in the first period, were lucky to escape the frame trailing just 1-0. Solid penalty-kill play and sharp goaltending by Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta) kept the sluggish Beavers in the game during the first 20 minutes. UNO’s Matt Ambroz accounted for the only score of the first period, netting a man advantage marker, his third of the series, at the 6:14 mark. However, the tide would turn for Bemidji State in the second period. Midway through the stanza (10:16), Read took a passes from fellow senior Emil Billberg (F., Stockholm, Sweden) and George at the bottom of the left circle and evened the score, 1-1, with a power-play marker of his own. Less than three minutes later (13:12), the Beavers’ would take their first lead of the game when Matt Carlson (Jr., Grand Forks, N.D.) pocketed the second goal of his career. Trailing the play, the junior corralled a rebound from a George shot in the slot and fired a rocket passed John Falkner. Taking a 2-1 lead into the third period, Bemidji State saw its lead vanish at the 4:46 mark. Ryan Walters put an unassisted shot in the back of the net to set up the teams’ second consecutive overtime contest. The Mavericks took it to the Beavers to begin the sudden death overtime, but a BSU rush by the line of Read, Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) and Billberg ended the game, 3-2, as Read found a Lowe rebound, skated down the slot and lifted a shot over the shoulder of Falkner. Bakala collected 36 saves, while allowing just two goals in 60:49 between the pipes. Unbeaten in seven of his last 10 starts (7-2-1), Bakala improved to 8-6-1 on the season. Falkner falls to 12-7-2 after allowing conceding all three BSU goals, while making 28 saves. Read’s first goal of the evening stood as the Beavers’ first power-play goal in nearly four games. The Beavers power-play unit finished scoring on one of four man advantage opportunities. After allowing a power-play goal in the first period, BSU’s penalty-kill unit snuffed out the Mavericks’ last final three opportunities to finish holding UNO scoreless on four of five power-play chances. BSU is now 2-1-2 in overtime this season. Despite going winless versus BSU this weekend, the Mavericks continue to cling to a 5-4-2 record versus the Beavers all-time, while Bemidji State is unbeaten in five of the last six games between the teams (4-1-1) and are 3-0-1 versus UNO as WCHA foes.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- St. Cloud State University stole a 2-1 overtime victory and two points in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) standings from the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team Friday in front of a capacity crowd of 4,373 at the Sanford Center. Nic Dowd flipped in the game-wining goal with just 28.5 seconds remaining in the extra frame to end the game after the teams played 52:08 with the score tied. The Huskies took a 1-0 lead in a well-played, evenly-matched WCHA contest 6:37 into the second period when Nick Jensen scored with help from Garrett Roe and Cam Reid. Bemidji State looked to have tied the game on a Jake Areshenko (So., D, Port Coquitlam, British Columbia) goal poked through a scrum in front of the net at the 13:15 mark, but after a review of the scoring play, the officials determined that a BSU player contacted the SCSU goaltender and the crew waved the goal off. But the Beavers bounced back to get the goal they needed with 1:15 left in the second period and headed into the second intermission with the score even, 1-1. Senior Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) netted his team-leading 15th goal of the season to set up a 20-minute race for the victory. The team captain took a pass from Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) in the high slot and patiently waited for a clear shot before firing a wrister through heavy traffic in front of the crease and past SCSU’s Mike Lee. Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) was also credited with an assists on the power-play goal. A scoreless third period set the Beavers up with overtime for the third consecutive game and the sixth time this season. BSU entered the game 1-1-2 in extra time to this point in 2010-11 and had not lost an overtime contest since Oct. 29 when University of Minnesota Duluth’s Travis Oleksuk scored a powerplay goal with seven seconds left in the extra frame--a streak spanning four overtime games. So when the score was still 1-1 with the clock ticking below a minute, it looked as if BSU would salvage a tie, but Jensen would have a say in that. A narrowly missed scoring opportunity by BSU’s Dan MacIntyre (Sr., D, Fort Frances, Ontario) was followed by a rush into the Huskies’ offensive zone. Jared Fessler got the puck on net and after a rebound shot was blocked by BSU’s goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta), Dowd collected the puck in the slot, lifted the it up and over a pair of BSU defenders and past the Beavers’ netminder to allow SCSU to escape with the win and extend its winning streak to five games. Solid defensively through the game, the Beavers piled up 19 blocked shots in front of Bakala’s 21-save night. Bemidji State’s penalty-kill unit was flawless snuffing out all five of SCSU’s power-play opportunities, which included a fiveminute major early in the second period. With five man advantage opportunities, Read potted BSU’s only power-play goal of the evening. Despite being handed a disappointing loss Friday, the Beavers maintain a handle on the all-time series with the Huskies. BSU owns a 44-38-3 mark versus St. Cloud State since 1948.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- This wasn’t how they planed their return to Sanford Center after an absence of nearly six months. Just one week removed from a three-point weekend versus nationallyranked University of Nebraska Omaha team in Omaha, Neb. to wrap up an eight game road swing, the Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team retuned to the Robert H. Peters Rink Jan. 21-22 only to be swept by St. Cloud State University (11-11-2; 7-8-1 WCHA). The Huskies capped the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) series by pinning a disappointing 5-1 loss on Beavers to extend their winning streak to six games Saturday. St. Cloud State scored on three of their first seven shots on goal, building a 3-0 lead during the first 10:03 that would prove to be insurmountable for a shellshocked Bemidji State team playing in front of a stunned capacity crowd of 4,373. “You want a better start than that,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “It just didn’t happen. You are down 3-0 ten minutes into the game and you’ve obviously dug a pretty big hole for yourself. “We just didn’t manage the puck very well tonight,” added Serratore. “[St. Cloud State] has a ton of skill. If you give up out numbered rushes, they will obviously convert every one of them.” SCSU sophomore David Eddy scored a pair of goals and assisted on another to lead the Huskies, while Garrett Roe and Cam Reid each contributed a goal and posted two assists as St. Cloud State handed the Beavers their worst loss of the season. The 5-1 loss marked the first time BSU has dropped a game by four goals or more since Mar. 27, 2010 when University of Michigan defeated the Beavers by the same score in the 2010 NCAA Tournament’s Midwest Regional Semifinal in Fort Wayne, Ind. “They all sting,” commented Serratore about the loss. “They never feel good. You just have to try to block these out. Hopefully this will serve as a wake up call. You just have to try to learn from this type of game.” Trailing 3-0 to open the second stanza, the Beavers played with a bit more urgency and finished the frame out shooting the Huskies 16-10, but St. Cloud State would make it 5-0, on a Jordy Christian tally at the 8:11 mark and Eddy’s second goal of the game just over four minutes later (12:35), before the Beavers would find the scoreboard. After a pair of near misses early in the second, including a point-blank shot that rung off the near post, junior Jamie MacQueen (F, St. Thomas, Ontario) made good on a power-play attempt from the right face-off circle. Shea Walters (Jr., F, Hibbing, Minn.) and Sam Rendle (Fr., D, Grand Rapids, Minn.) were credited with assists on the play as the Beavers cycled the puck around the top of the zone to MacQueen for the open look. Down 5-1 after 40 minutes of play, the Beavers opted for a goaltending switch putting sophomore Mathieu Dugas (G, L’Assomtion, Quebec) between the pipes. The sophomore held SCSU without a goal for the remainder of the game, but the change didn’t translate into the same spark on the offensive end of the rink as the Beavers were also held scoreless in the final 20 minutes of play. Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta) posted 15 saves before being pulled from the game. He falls to 8-8-1 on the season. Dugas turned away 10 shots in relief. Each team finished with a power-play goal. BSU’s penalty-kill unit allowed a SCSU special teams goal on five man advantage opportunities, while BSU converted one of its three power-play chances.

MANKATO, Minn. (Verizon WIreless Center)-- Bemidji State University goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta) stopped a career-high 41 shots and Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) potted his 10th goal of the season to match Minnesota State University, Mankato, 1-1, with just over two minutes to play, but Bemidji, Minn. native Channing Boe netted a blast 2:32 into overtime to give MSU the win, 2-1. On a night that the Beavers struggled to generate offensive opportunities, defense, goaltending and special teams play gave the team a chance for a victory as BSU and MSU opened a WCHA series at Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato, Minn. In addition to Bakala’s career night between the pipes, the BSU penalty-kill unit held MSU scoreless on all four of its power-play opportunities and the Beavers blocked seven shots in front of their goaltender. The Mavericks dominated play in the first period and found scoreboard first. Peppering Bakala with a steady stream of shots during the first 20 minutes, MSU owned a 16-2 advantage in goats on goal and one, at the 13:14 mark, found the back of the net. A turnover in the Beavers’ offensive zone sparked a four-on-two rush by the hosts resulting in a pass from Tyler Elbrecht to Ben Youds on left post. Youds put a shot on net that trickled through the legs of Bakala for a goal. The Beavers came out of the first intermission down 1-0, but established a physical presence and to gain momentum in the game. Although the team was held scoreless in the period, BSU recorded several solid scoring chances. On the other end of the ice, Bakala proved to be on his game stopping all 14 of the Mavericks’ 14 shots in the second stanza. The third period belonged to the BSU penalty-killers. With 12:28 left in the game, the Beavers’ blueliner Matt Carlson (Jr., Grand Forks, N.D.) was tagged for checking from behind along with a game misconduct, leaving the BSU defense short-handed for the remainder of the game and setting the Mavericks up with a five-minute power-play. Already 0-for-2 in the game on the man advantage, the MSU power-play was again held at bay as the BSU penalty-kill unit seldom allowed a shot during the major penalty to stay within a goal. Seventy-seven seconds later, the Beavers again found themselves shorthanded when Darcy Findlay (Jr., F, Bristol, Quebec) was whistled for boarding. But the BSU penalty-kill again stood tall giving the Beavers just over four minutes to mount a comeback. With less than three minutes to go in regulation, Bemidji State got the break it needed. Senior forward Emil Billberg (Stockholm, Sweden) came up with a loose puck following a collision by a pair of MSU players at the blue line. The forward skated the puck into the zone and fired a shot that Maverick netminder Phil Cookkicked aside but was unable to collect. George was on the doorstep to deposit the backhand into the back of the net with 2:15 left in the game. BSU followed the goal with a flurry of shots, but Cook was up to the challenge and sent the game to overtime with a handful game-saving stops. Midway through the extra frame (2:32), deep in the Maverick zone, Boe stepped in front of a BSU attempt to clear the puck and fired a bullet from the left point that snuck past Bakala to steal the game 2-1 and garner two points in the WCHA standings.

MANKATO, Minn. (Verizon Wireless Center) -- Sophomore Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) recorded two goals and Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) added three helpers to power the Bemidji State men’s ice hockey team to a 4-1 victory over Minnesota State at the Verizon Wireless Center Saturday. The win not only ended the Beavers’ three game losing skid and helped BSU salvage a series split, it also snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Mavericks dating back to Dec. 14, 2007. One night removed from the BSU penalty-kill unit snuffing out all four of the Mavericks’ power-play opportunities, the unit again achieved perfection holding Minnesota State scoreless on six power-play opportunities, which included 70 seconds of 5-on-3 early in the second period, while its power-play unit scored a pair of man advantage markers. For the second time in as many games, the Mavericks scored first. BSU’s Drew Fisher (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) came up with the puck following a face-off deep in the zone, but turned it over in front of the Beavers’ net and Michael Dorr made the Beavers pay. He collected the puck and put it past Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) at the 14:06 mark to send the Mavericks into the intermission holding a 1-0 lead. As the second period got underway, the Beavers were thrown into the fire. BSU spent 4:51 of the first 5:24 of the period on the penalty kill. Bemidji State opened the frame a man short and 51 in, Dan MacIntyre (Sr., D, Fort Frances, Ontario) joined Ryan Adams (Sr., D, Deloraine, Manitoba) in the penalty box supplying the Mavericks with a 1:10 5-on-3 opportunity. The BSU penalty-kill had the answer. Just 33 seconds later, Bakala and the penalty-kill unit was again called upon again when Drew Fisher (Jr., F, International Falls, Minn.) was whistled for tripping, but Minnesota State again came up dry. BSU’s solid defensive effort provided the bench with a spark. At the 8:16 mark, the Beavers, who were on a power-play of their own, cycled the puck to Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia). Hunt fired a rocket though traffic from the point and the puck found the back of the net to tie the game with his first goal first since Jan. 22, 2011--a streak spanning 40 games. Just 1:26 later, Read picked up a loose puck and found George in front of the net with a nifty pass and the sophomore tapped it in to give BSU its first lead of the series. BSU skated its power-play unit for the first 1:38 of the third period and capitalized. Again it was Read that served as the playmaker. With just seconds left in the penalty, he corralled a blocked shot, skated around a Maverick and fired a shot that was redirected in front of the MSU goaltender by George. George’s second marker of the evening and 11th of the season, put the Beavers up 3-1 with 10:18 to play. Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) put the game on ice with an unassisted goal at the 17:09 mark of the third. Holding MSU scoreless on six power-play opportunities, the Beavers finished the series a perfect 10-of-10 on the penalty-kill. Conversely, a night after misfiring on both of its man advantage chances, BSU made good on 2-of-4. Bakala was the game’s unsung hero posting his second stright 40-plus-save performance, while backstopping the flawless penalty-kill. He allowed just one goal in the 60-minute win, evening his record to 9-9-1 on the season.

HOUGHTON, Mich. (John MacInnes Student Ice Arena) -- A hard luck Michigan Tech team took advantage of a pair of Bemidji State University miscues to earn a 2-2 tie with BSU and snap an 18-game Western Collegiate Hockey Association losing streak Friday at John MacInnes Student Ice Arena in Houghton, Mich. After taking an early lead on a goal from Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba), the Beavers needed an Aaron McLeod (So., F, Ottawa, Ontario) marker with just over nine minutes to go to erase a 2-1 deficit and push the game to overtime for the fifth time in seven games. The teams played the five-minute extra frame without a goal and settled for a tie and a point in the standings. “We’ll take it,” commented BSU Head Coach Tom Serratore. “We got our point. Now lets worry about tomorrow. If we can take care of tomorrow, we will end up with a productive weekend.” In a high-tempo, evenly-played first period, Michigan Tech may have out shot BSU 10-7, but it was the Beavers that accounted for the only goal. Lowe netted his 10th lamplighter of the season at the 16:24 mark after Jake Areshenko (So., D, Port Cocquitlan, British Columbia) hit fellow sophomore Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) with an outlet pass. George skated the puck into the zone before finding Lowe on the post and his senior linemate took care of the rest. The Huskies caught their first break at the 8:42 mark of the second period. Patrick McCadden potted his second goal of the season in a virtually empty net. BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) left the crease to play the puck and fire it up the ice, but hit one of his own defenders in the process. The puck fell to the skates of McCadden and he tied the game 1-1. With the score even at 1-1 after 40 minutes of play, the Huskies again capitalized on a BSU miscue to brake the deadlock at the 7:13 mark of the third period. BSU misplayed the puck behind Bakala. Jacob Johnstone collected the loose puck and found MTU’s leading scorer Milos Gordic in front of the net for the freshman’s team-leading 13th of the season. McLeod and the Beavers bounced back 1:24 later. After a nifty display of stick handling to cut through the MTU defense, the sophomore buried his third goal of 2010-11 high on the glove side of the net evening the score at 2-2. The play was started by the defensive pair of Dan MacIntyre (Sr., Fort Frances, Ontario) and Matt Carlson (Jr., Grand Forks, N.D.). Despite a penalty to MacIntyre that put the Huskies on the power-play for the final 1:03 of regulation, the score remained locked at 2-2 necessitating overtime. BSU opened the extra frame short one man for 53 seconds, but its penaltykill unit stood tall holding MTU scoreless to complete the night a perfect 5-for-5. The Beavers out shoot Michigan Tech 5-2 in overtime, to grab a 34-29 lead on shots goal to out shoot opponent for the first time in its last seven games, but were unable to find the back of the net in overtime and settled for the tie. The stalemate leaves the Bemidji State-Michigan Tech series even at 2-2-1. Although the Beavers salvaged a point in the tie, in the five-game history of the rivalry, no road team has ever won a game. Bakala turned away 27 shots, while allowing two goals in 65:00 minutes of play. The tie pushed his record of 9-9-3. Special teams did not figure into the game’s scoring. In addition to the BSU penalty-kill unit snuffing out all five of Michigan Tech’s power-plays, the Beavers were 0-for-3 on the man advantage.

HOUGHTON, Mich. (John MacInnes Student Ice Arena) -- Bemidji State University and Michigan Tech played more than 58 minutes without a goal Saturday, but with 1:33 left in regulation, BSU sophomore Jordan George (F, Madison, Wis.) scored an unassisted goal to break the scoreless tie and propel the Beavers to a three-point Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) weekend and the 2011 Winter Carnival Championship at John MacInnes Student Ice Arena in Houghton, Mich. “I thought it was a great hockey games both ways,” said BSU head coach Tom Serratore. “I thought we played very well for 60 minutes. I was pretty happy with our energy and I thought we had several quality scoring chances.” “This was a critical two points if we are going to stay in the hunt and try to advance in the standings,” Serratore added. “It is still going to be awful tough, but we had to win.” George’s 13th goal of the season stood as the only point of the game and earned the BSU forward the Winter Carnival Most Valuable Player Award. With just under two minutes to play, George put his body in the line of fire to block a Michigan Tech shot from the point. The Madison, Wis. native then corralled the loose puck and took it to the other end before he finished the breakaway by flipping a backhand over the glove-hand shoulder of MTU goaltender Kevin Genoe. “It’s amazing that at the end of the shift [Jordan] George can find legs,” commented Serratore. “He is deadly on those breakaways.” BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta) turned away 23 of 23 shots for his sixth collegiate shoutout and served as the last line of defense for a penalty-kill unit that held the Huskies scoreless on all three of their power-play opportunities to improve to 10-9-2 on the season. On the other end, Genoe made 31 saves and took his own shutout bid inside the game’s final two minutes. Tagged with the loss, he falls to 2-13-2 on the season. For the second consecutive night, special team’s play didn’t impact the scoreboard. While BSU held the Huskies scoreless on three power-play chances, the Beavers came up dry on both man advantage opportunities. The 1-0 triumph marks just the fifth time in the history of Beaver hockey that a BSU team has earned a 1-0 win and the first since Bemidji State defeated Wayne State University with the games’ only goal Dec. 1, 2006. Saturday’s win not only gave the Beavers a 3-2-3 advantage in the all-time series with Michigan Tech and made BSU undefeated in the last four games versus MTU (3-0-1), it also stands as the first victory by the road team in the history of the rivalry.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- The Bemidji State University men’s ice hockey team trailed No. 18 Colorado College on four different occasions Friday, but used a season-high scoring output to earn a 5-5 overtime tie with the Tigers. Senior Ian Lowe (F, Bradwardine, Manitoba), who recorded a goal and two assists, led a contingent of nine BSU players that contributed scoring. Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) added the game-tying goal and was one of three BSU players with two points and Jeff Jubinville (Fr., F, Edmonton, Alberta) recorded his first collegiate lamplighter in stalemate. The Tiger’s first visit to Bemidji, Minn. opened with a flurry. After just 10 minutes of play, the game was tied 2-2. CC opened a 1-0 lead 2:29 in on a Tyler Johnson goal. The Beavers mounted their first comeback 90 seconds later when Sam Rendle (Fr., D, Grand Rapids, Minn.) intercepted a cross-ice pass in the neutral zone and found Jamie MacQueen (Jr., F, St. Thomas, Ontario) streaking into the zone. The junior fired a shot from the right face off circle and tied the game, 1-1. Bemidji State got its first power-play opportunity of the game at the 8:07 mark, but the Tigers spoiled the man advantage turning a BSU turnover into a 2-on-1 opportunity and Tim Hall would pot CC’s second goal of the game. Before the penalty expired, BSU again evened the score when Lowe got a shot on net that the Tiger goaltender, Joe Howe, could not handle and Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) buried the rebound for his team-leading 16th goal of the season. Hall scored his second goal of the evening at the 14:59 mark to send the Tigers to the locker room after 20 minutes owning a 3-2 lead. After combining for five goals during the first 15 minutes of play, BSU and CC would play the first 15 minutes of the second without a goal. Nick Dineen would change that at 15:02 mark of the period, making good on the only power-play opportunity of the second. The goal put Colorado College up two goals, 4-2. The resilient Beavers bounced back yet again with a pair of goals during the final three minutes of the second period to tie the game 4-4. Jubinville cut the deficit to a goal when Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) found him in the slot with a pass from behind the goal. Ninetyfour seconds later, Read started a scoring play by digging the puck out of the corner and finding George with a pass behind the net. After shaking a defender with a nifty display of stick work, George found Lowe in the high slot and the senior banked a one-timer off the right post for his 11th goal of 2010-11. After missing 15 games due to injury, CC’s Jaden Schwartz pushed the Tigers back into the lead in the opening moments of the third period (1:09) deflecting a shot past BSU’s Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta). Down a goal, 5-4, with time ticking away, the Beavers climbed on the back of their leading scorer for one final comeback. George, who finished the game with 31 points (14-17=31), potted his 14th goal of the season with 2:55 left in the game. Lowe and Hunt were each credited with their second assist of the game on the play. Each team was held scoreless during the remainder of regulation and for the entire five-minute overtime period. The teams settled for the tie and each garnered a point the WCHA standings. Bakala turned away 16 shots for BSU, while allowing five goals in 65 minutes between the pipes. With the tie, he extended his unbeaten streak to four games, while his record moved to 10-9-3 on the season.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- Entering its series finale with Colorado College owning the Western Collegiate Hockey Association’s most efficient power play, the Bemidji State men’s ice hockey team reinforced its top-billing Saturday riding a strong special teams effort to a 2-1 victory over the Tigers at Sanford Center. The Beavers got goals from Brance Orban (So., F, Lethbridge, Alberta) and Jamie MacQueen (Jr., F, St. Thomas, Ontario), while Shea Walters (Jr., F, Hibbing, Minn.) and Ryan Cramer (Sr., F, International Falls, Minn.) each added pair of assists as the Beavers completed the home series by claiming three of four points in the WCHA standings. Colorado college broke the ice getting power-play goal from Stephen Schultz 57 seconds into a penalty on BSU defenseman Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia). The goal came with just 1:37 left in the first period and sent the Tigers to the locker room for the first intermission with a 1-0 lead in their possession. The Beavers, who are now unbeaten in their last five games (3-0-2), bounced back in the second to claim the lead on a pair of power-play markers. Orban evened the score, 1-1, midway (11:19) the period with his first goal of the season. As the Beavers past the puck around the perimeter, Cramer found Walters on the point and the junior fired a shot through traffic that was deflected by Orban at the top of the crease and into the back of the net. Three minutes later, Bemidji Sate’s second power-play goal of the evening came on a bullet off the tape MacQueen’s stick from the top of the left face-off circle. Leading 2-1 after 40 minutes of play, the Beavers rode a strong defensive effort in the third period, sparked by the play of goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta). Bakala made 10 saves during the final 20 minutes of play, which included a point-blank kick save that closed the door on CC’s fifth power-play of the game. Bakala finished the night with 34 saves, while allowing one goal in the win. He improved to 11-9-3 on the season and is unbeaten in his last five starts (3-02). In addition to generating a pair of goals with its special teams play, the Beavers held the Tigers scoreless on four of five power-play opportunities. The win over Colorado College is the first for Bemidji State since a 3-2 triumph over the Tigers in Colorado Springs, Colo. Dec. 29, 2006. However, CC still holds a slight edge in the series 3-2-1.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Ralph Engelstad Arena) -- Top-ranked University of North Dakota potted three power-play goals en route to a 5-2 victory over Bemidji State University to open the Western Collegiate Hockey Association series Saturday at Ralph Engelstad Arena. Ryan Cramer (Sr., F, International Falls, Minn.) and Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) scored for the Beavers, but it was not enough as Jason Gregoire and Matt Frattin each collected two goals in the UND victory. The Fighting Sioux made good on their first power-play opportunity of the afternoon to break the scoreless tie 9:14 into the first period. With Dan MacIntyre (Sr., D, Fort Frances, Ontario) in the penalty box for boarding, Brett Hextall fired a pass deep into the zone that found Brock Nelson behind the net. Nelson sent the puck to the top of the crease where Jason Gregoire tapped it past BSU goaltender Dan Bakala (Jr., Calgary, Alberta). UND stretched its lead to 2-0 at the 17:10 mark. Mario Lamoureux took the puck off the right side boards and made a cross-ice pass to Derrick LaPoint. LaPoint unleashed a slap shot from the top of the left face-off circle that Brent Davidson redirected in front of the net to send the Fighting Sioux to the locker room with a two-goal lead at the first intermission. In a lopsided first period, the Sioux established the tempo out shooting BSU 10-2. North Dakota would add to its lead in the opening moments of the second period. Just 55 seconds into its third power-play chance of the afternoon, Matt Frattin fired a bullet from the point that found the back of the net. Evan Trupp and Corban Knight were credited with assists on the play. Cramer got the Beavers back into the game at the 6:11 mark of the second. The senior forward picked the pocket of a UND defenseman on the red line skated into the zone and let a wrister fly from the top of the left face-off dot for his second lamplighter of the season. The goal was just the Beavers’ fifth shot on net in the game. As quickly as Bemidji State started to gain momentum, North Dakota caught a break and quickly stole it way. With 2:43 left in the second frame, BSU was whistled for a cross-checking penalty, setting UND up with its fourth power-play opportunity and and UND’s lethal power-play unit responded with its third goal on the man advantage. Hextall took a shot from the point and Frattin deflected it into the back of the net. Trailing 4-1 with 20 minutes to play, the Beavers held the Sioux at bay for the first 10 minutes of the third period, but when the UND attack squeezed past the Bemidji State defense, Trupp found Gregoire on the door step to put UND up 5-1. The Beavers responded with another goal late (19:40) to bring the score to its final resting place. While attempting to kill UND’s sixth power-play opportunity of the game, Ian Lowe (Sr., F. Bradwardine, Manitoba) got a shot off from the point. A UND defenseman blocked the attempt, but Read picked up the loose puck, skated to the left post and beat the UND goaltender for his team-leading third short-handed tally of the season. In a game where special teams made the difference, the BSU power-play was 0-for-3 on the man advantage, while UND finished the game 3-for-6. Bakala was tagged with the loss after conceding all five of UND’s goals. He made 28 saves in the game, including 11 in the third period alone. He falls to 11-10-3 on the season.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Ralph Engelstad Arena) -- No. 1 University of North Dakota used a four-goal second period to drop Bemidji State University, 5-1, Sunday at Ralph Engelstad Arena and completed the Western Collegiate Hockey Association season series sweep. For the second straight afternoon, the Fighting Sioux potted three powerplay goals as special teams play again proved to be the difference in the game. After a lackluster series-opener, BSU jumped out to an early lead Sunday. Sparked by a trio of power-play opportunities, the Beavers drew first blood taking advantage of a Fighting Sioux penalty for the first time in the series. Brad Hunt (Jr., D, Ridge Meadows, British Columbia) and Matt Read (Sr., F, Ilderton, Ontario) found Jordan George (So., F, Madison, Wis.) in the right face-off circle. George waited, picked his spot and sniped his 15th goal of the season to give the Beavers a 1-0 lead 7:06 into the game. Bemidji State had a tremendous opportunity to build on its lead late in the period. With UND’s Andrew MacWilliam already in the penalty box, Radoslav Illo (Fr., F, Bystrica, Slovakia) drew a hooking penalty to give BSU a 5-on-3 advantage for 21 seconds. BSU managed two shots on the power-play opportunity, but the best the team could muster was a high slot shot from Hunt that rung off right post. Dan Bakala (Jr., G, Calgary, Alberta) stood tall for BSU in during the first 20 minutes turning away nine UND shots to protect the team’s 1-0 lead. UND played the second as the clear aggressors and by the end of the period had four goals and the lead to show for it. Opening the second period on the penalty kill for the first 1:30, the Beavers protected their lead for UND’s first power-play, but 67 seconds later, BSU was again forced to play a man down when Ian Lowe (Sr., F, Bradwardine, Manitoba) was whistled for interference. It took the lethal UND power-play unit just five seconds to even the score at 1-1. Brad Malone was credited with he goal, while Matt Frattin and Dillon Simpson earned the assists. Midway through the second, the Fighting Sioux power-play was at it again, this time needing just 1:49 to take their first lead of the game, 2-1. The goal came when goaltender Aaron Dell chipped the puck up the ice to Corban Knight on the right side boards. Knight skated the puck into the zone and found Jake Marto in the high slot and the senior flipped a backhand over Bakala’s glove hand and into the back of the net. With the Beavers on their heels, UND got even-strength goals from Frattin and Jason Gregoire in the final 4:01 of the second to take a 4-1 lead into the locker room for the second intermission. UND added a third power-play goal at the 13:20 mark of the final period to bring its lead to 5-1. Knight started the play from behind the net finding Malone in the left face-off circle. Malone slid a back door pass across the crease to Evan Trupp who tapped in his 14th goal of the season. Bakala, who was tagged with the loss after conceding all five of UND’s goals, saw his record fall to 11-11-3. He made 24 saves in the game. UND’s Dell turned away 15 shots and allowed just one goal in the win stretching his record to 23-6-2 on the season. North Dakota’s win marks its 12th consecutive versus the Beavers, while it improves its grip on the all-time series to 21-1-1.
