The Lakers took the lead again at 6:15 of the third period with Zac MacVoy scoring his 4th goal of the season, with Dan Eves and Chad Nehring assisting. Ohio State tied the game up again, at 3-3, on the power play at 9:59 of the third with Goebel’s second goal of the game. Matt Cowie took a hooking penalty at 17:53 and Ohio State’s Peter Boyd put in the game winner with 8 seconds remaining in the game, after Nathan Perkovich broke his stick trying to clear the puck from the zone.
