Lakers lose final home game in overtime

Ryan Reid

March 1, 2003

SAULT STE. MARIE - Bowling Green's Mike Falk jammed the puck past Lake Superior State goaltender Matt Violin with nine seconds remaining in overtime and left the Lakers with a split during their final home series of the season.

LSSU (6-24-4 overall, 3-22-1 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) was within seconds of its first three-point weekend in league play since December, 2000, but couldn't clear the puck out of its zone. Both teams had good scoring opportunities during the final minute.

"These are two programs that have known glory but don't have a lot right now," LSSU coach Frank Anzalone said of the CCHA's 11th and 12th-place teams. "I give Bowling Green credit because they played hard and did a great job controlling rebounds."

The Lakers came from behind twice to tie the game. Freshman Alex Dunn scored at 6:07 of the second period to make it 1-1. Sophomore Ryan Reid fired a shot from the point past BGSU goaltender Jordan Sigalet at 16:45 of the third period, knotting the score, 2-2.

"It was a great goal we got at the end to tie the game," Anzalone said. "It was very emotional and a lot of fun. I was disappointed to give up that goal at the nine-second mark. It was not something that should happen. The guy walked out at the corner. We missed the coverage and he buried it. We would have liked to end the weekend with a win and a tie."

Reid, Adrian Kremblewski, Bo Cheesman and Kyle Anderson drew assists on LSSU's goals.

D'Arcy McConvey scored the Falcons' first goal at 17:57 of the first period and assisted on Tyler Knight's short-handed goal at 11:57 of the second period. It was BGSU's fifth short-handed goal of the season and the fifth allowed by the Lakers this season.

Sigalet (6-10-2) totaled 33 saves as the Lakers out-shot the Falcons 35-29. LSSU out-shot an opponent for the first time in five games. Bowling Green improved to 6-24-4 overall, 3-22-1 in the CCHA.

Violin (4-19-3) totaled 26 saves.
