MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Minnesota State was down by two goals heading into the third period, but stormed back with a pair of late goals to force overtime before claiming a road nonconference win at Minnesota in Minneapolis Saturday night.
Gopher forward Justin Kloos one-timed a blast from the top of the left circle past Jason Pawloski at 19:49 of the first period with Minnesota on the power play for the game's first goal. It became a 2-0 Minnesota lead at 18:58 of the second frame after Tyler Sheehy deflected a shot from the point from Jack Glover into the Maverick net.
Senior forward Bryce Gervais deflected Casey Nelson's shot from the point past Eric Schierhorn at 16:28 of the third period. The tally is the fourth of the year for Gervais and his 55th career marker allowed the Mavericks to pull within one. Senior forward Brett Knowles took a feed from Max Coatta and one-timed a shot past Schierhorn to tie the game at 19:15 with an extra attacker on the ice. The goal, the second of the season for Knowles, forced overtime.
In overtime, senior forward Teddy Blueger showed great patience in the offensive zone before skating to the front of the net before sliding the puck along the ice under Schierhorn's left pad for the game-winning goal at 4:17 for his third goal of the year. Blueger and Gervais both finished with a goal and an assist in the win.
The Maverick blue line corps took a hit during the course of the second period when senior John Jutzi and sophomore Jaden Schmeisser were both felled by Minnesota shots. Neither player returned for the third period.
The Mavericks went zero-for-for in power play chances on the night (the Gophers were one-for-four) and freshman Jason Pawloski turned aside 24 shots for Minnesota State in the contest in bringing his record to 3-0-0 for the year. The Mavericks owned a 31-26 shots on goal advantage in the game.
Minnesota State, which stands 6-6-0 overall and owns a 5-1-0 WCHA mark, resumes Western Collegiate Hockey Association next weekend with a two-game set at Northern Michigan.
