Box Score

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State scored two goals in a 2:20 span of the second period to come from behind, then fended off a flurry of shots late in the third period to beat Lake Superior State, 3-2, in a Central Collegiate Hockey Association game Saturday at Value City Arena.

LSSU (6-9-5 overall, 4-8-3 CCHA), which played much better following Friday's 5-0 loss, out-shot OSU 11-7 in the third period and pressured Buckeye goalie Mike Betz while playing with an extra attacker during the final 1:41. The Lakers, however, failed to tie the game in the third period after striking twice in the second.

The line of Dominic Osman, Chris Peterson and Bo Cheesman accounted for both Laker goals. Osman worked hard behind the net to get the puck to Cheesman, who scored a power-play goal at 3:21 of the second period, tying the game, 1-1. Osman added another power-play goal at 11:09 for a 2-1 LSSU lead. Cheesman drew an assist on the second goal. Peterson, a senior making his fourth appearance in the lineup this season, assisted on both goals.

The Lakers finished 2-for-5 on the power play, while Ohio State (15-10-0 overall, 10-7-0 CCHA) was 1-for-4.

Paul Caponigri scored OSU's first goal of the game at 12:09 of the first period, while OSU was on a power play. Andrew Schembri and JB Bittner also scored for the Buckeyes, with Bittner tallying the game-winner at 14:57 of the second period.

Betz (12-9-0) totaled 27 saves. LSSU starting goaltender Jeff Jakaitis (2-3-2) stopped 20 shots through two periods. Violin took over in the third period and totaled seven saves in 18:21.

LSSU returns home to play host to Providence in a non-conference series on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 23-24. Providence is coached by former Laker associate head coach Paul Pooley, who is making his first appearance in the Sault since taking over the Friars' program 10 years ago.
