OMAHA, Neb. - Lake Superior State's nationally-touted defense came back to life following Friday's 8-0 loss and kept the Lakers within reach of Nebraska-Omaha in Game 2 of their Central Collegiate Hockey Association series.

The Lakers (14-8-6 overall, 10-8-3 CCHA) fended off UNO's attack in the third period and overtime to salvage a 2-2 tie and remain in the top four in the CCHA standings.

The nation's point leader, Scott Parse of Nebraska-Omaha (15-11-4 overall, 9-9-4 CCHA), tied it 2-2 with an even-strength goal at 8:12 of the second period.

The Mavs out-shot LSSU 15-9 in the third period and 40-32 for the game. LSSU goaltender Jeff Jakaitis was tested throughout the night and totaled 38 saves. Jerad Kaufmann totaled 30 saves for UNO.
