SAULT STE. MARIE - Eighth-ranked Ohio State came back from one-goal deficits in the second and third periods to defeat Lake Superior State 3-2 in overtime in a Central Collegiate Hockey Association game Saturday at Taffy Abel Arena.

LSSU (7-15-6 overall, 6-9-5 CCHA) played its league-leading 10th overtime game of the season and dropped to 2-2-6 in overtime contests.

OSU's Bryce Anderson chipped the winning goal past LSSU goaltender Jeff Jakaitis at 1:04 of the extra period. The Buckeyes (20-7-3 overall, 17-4-1 CCHA) came from behind to tie the score, 2-2, on Dan Knapp's goal at 1:45 of the third period.

Colin Nicholson scored a power-play goal at 6:30 of the first period to give the Lakers a 1-0 lead. Matt Restoule and Steve McJannet were credited with assists.

OSU's Kyle Hood tied it at 1-1 at 8:53 of the second period.

Laker Ren Fauci regained the one-goal Laker lead at 10:45 of the second period. Nathan Ward and Mark Adamek drew assists on Fauci's second power-play marker of the series.

LSSU finished 2-for-3 with the man advantage and scored three power-play goals for the weekend to end an 11-game scoreless drought. The Buckeyes, who have the No. 1 power play in the CCHA, were 0-for-2 with the man advantage.

Jakaitis totaled 18 saves, while OSU goaltender Dave Caruso stopped 11 shots. Ohio State out-shot the Lakers 9-2 in the third period during which the Lakers came up empty on Trent Campbell's break-away with six minutes to go. His shot went wide of OSU's goal.

The Lakers travel to Miami for a Feb. 11-12 series.
