Chad Nehring

Feb. 9, 2008

KALAMAZOO - The Lake Superior State hockey team posted its second straight three-point weekend, but this time the Lakers did it on the road, tying 3-3 Friday and winning 3-2 Saturday at Western Michigan.

LSSU (6-15-6 overall, 4-13-5 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) scored a goal in each period both nights. WMU (7-20-3 overall, 3-17-2 CCHA) answered every goal on Friday, but the Broncos couldn't solve the Lake Superior State defense on Saturday until they spoiled sophomore goaltender Pat Inglis' shutout with 1:34 to go.

Freshman Chad Nehring scored LSSU's first goal of the game for the second straight night, giving the Lakers a 1-0 lead at 3:04 of the first period. Dan Eves and Dillin Stonehouse were credited with assists.

Troy Schwab made it 2-0 with a goal at 13:51 of the second period, and Zac MacVoy gave the Lakers a 3-0 lead by scoring at 1:45 of the third period. No assists were reported.

Western Michigan's Nathan Ansell scored on a slapshot from near the boards to cut the lead to 3-1 at 18:26 of the third period. With WMU goalie Jerry Kuhn pulled in favor of an extra attacker, Bronco Jeff LoVecchio made it 3-2 with four seconds remaining.

Inglis totaled 33 saves, while Kuhn finished with 34. It was the Lakers' first win of the season when out-shooting an opponent. They edged the Broncos in shots on goal in both games of the series.

LSSU was 0-for-3 on the power play, while WMU finished 0-for-2.

The Lakers, who took three of four points from Ferris State during last weekend's home series, travel to Michigan for two televised games next weekend.
