Jason Blain

Feb. 2, 2008

SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake Superior State skated to a 1-1 overtime tie with Ferris State on Saturday to garner its first three-point weekend of the season.

Jason Blain knocked in a rebound off a shot by Nathan Perkovich for LSSU's lone goal at 5:01 of the first period. Perkovich stole the puck in the neutral zone and skated to FSU's net to set up the scoring opportunity. It was Blain's first goal of the season.

Ferris State answered on a power-play goal by Justin Menke at 14:16 of the second period.

LSSU (5-16-5 overall, 3-13-4 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) shut out the Bulldogs in the third period for the second straight night. The Lakers got several key saves from goaltender Pat Inglis, who started for the first time since Jan. 18 at Miami.

LSSU held the Bulldogs scoreless in the second and third period Friday to win 4-3. Seven of the Lakers' last 13 games against FSU have been decided in overtime. LSSU is 3-1-1 in its last five games against FSU with all but the tie being one-goal decisions.

Inglis totaled 36 saves, including 15 in the penalty-ridden second period and 11 in the third. He was forced to make five stops, including two stellar saves in overtime.

Ferris State (10-12-4 overall, 7-10-3 CCHA) finished 1-for-5 on the power play, while LSSU was 0-for-6. FSU goaltender Mitch O'Keefe totaled 23 saves.

The Lakers, who are unbeaten in their last three games, head to Western Michigan on Feb. 8-9.
