LSSU tops Michigan in Overtime Play

Lake Superior State University was able to rally from behind to beat the University of Michigan Friday night to snap a 10 game losing streak against U of M, including 6 in a row at Yost Ice Arena.

The Lakers silenced the 6740 in attendance at Yost with Laker Captain Steve McJannet scoring his 6th goal of the season at 6:28 of the first period with assists going to Jeff Rainville and Kory Scoran. The University of Michigan countered with goals at 10:40 and 12:52 of the period by Jason Dest and T.J Hensick to give the Wolverines the 2-1 lead heading into the locker rooms after the first period.

Trent Campbell was able to tie the game at 2-2 with a goal midway through the second period (9:19), his 11th of the season, off of a sweet pass from Troy Schwab, the other assist went to Dominic Osman.

LSSU was able to control the flow of play for much of the third period putting 11 shots on goal and holding Michigan to just 8 shots, neither team was able to connect on the go ahead goal in the third period.

Three minutes into an evenly played overtime period McJannet was able to notch his second goal of the game with Michigan goaltender Noah Ruden just able to get a piece of the puck as it headed into the net. Kory Scoran picked up the sole assist on the game wining goal.

LSSU was able to maintain a slight, 55% (41 to 33), faceoff advantage over the Wolverines.

Lake Superior went 0 for 2 on the power play while Michigan went 0-4 with the extra man. Referee Steve Piotrowski did not call any penalties after the second period. The win gives the Lakers their second win of the season when committing more penalties than their opponent (Bowling Green 27 Jan).
