SAULT STE. MARIE - Ohio State scored two power-play goals during the final 10 minutes of regulation, including the game-winner with eight seconds left, to beat Lake Superior State 4-3 Friday during Game 1 of a Central Collegiate Hockey Association series.

OSU (8-17-2 overall, 4-12-1 CCHA) was 2-for-2 on the power play in the third period and 2-for-4 for the game. Peter Boyd scored the game-winner at 19:52 with only one second remaining in the Buckeye power play.

The game was deadlocked, 1-1, after one period as OSU's Mathieu Picard and LSSU's Carter Lee traded even-strength goals.

Pat Aubry gave Lake Superior State a 2-1 lead with an even-strength goal at 5:51 of the second period, but Buckeye Tommy Goebel scored the first of his two goals to tie it, 2-2, at 19:16.

Zac MacVoy put the Lakers in front 3-2 at 6:15 of the third period, and Goebel answered again at 9:59.

Sophomore John Scrymgeour, who suffered a season-ending knee injury while playing against Ohio State exactly one year ago, earned assists on LSSU's first two goals. Steve Oleksy also drew an assist on Aubry's goal, while Dan Eves and Chad Nehring assisted on MacVoy's goal.

Lee's goal was his first as a Laker.

LSSU (3-16-4 overall, 1-13-3 CCHA) finished 0-for-3 on the power play.

Laker goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson totaled 35 saves as OSU out-shot Lake State, 39-28 for the game and 28-15 during the final two periods. Joseph Palmer had 25 saves for the Buckeyes.

Game 2 of the series is at 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Taffy Abel Arena.
