SAULT STE. MARIE - A Miami hockey team that was winless when out-shooting its opponent converted four of five power-play opportunities to beat Lake Superior State 5-2 Friday at Taffy Abel Arena.

The RedHawks (2-4-1 overall, 2-1-0 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) scored five unanswered goals to come back from a 2-0 deficit. They out-shot LSSU 35-23 for the game to improve to 1-4-1 when out-shooting their opponent.

LSSU (1-1-1 overall, 0-1-0 CCHA) dominated the first 10 minutes of the game, getting an even-strength goal from Alex Dunn at 3:13 and a short-handed goal from Nathan Ward at 9:29. Bo Cheesman drew the assist on Dunn's goal, while Trent Campbell assisted on Ward's.

The Lakers nearly made it 3-0 when Miami goalie Brandon Crawford-West deflected a puck skyward and didn't realize it had fallen behind him. He kicked the puck back through his skates to keep it out of the net.

Miami came back with a power-play goal by Andy Greene at 15:41 of the first period. LSSU lost its momentum early in the second period after Laker Dominic Osman broke a piece of glass with his skate, and the game was delayed for 20 minutes. Matt Christie tied it 2-2 for the RedHawks with a power-play goal at 8:23. Joe Cooper scored an even-strength goal at 13:00 to give Miami its first lead, 3-2.

Greene and Greg Hogeboom scored power-play goals in the third period to put the game out of reach.

Crawford-West (2-0-1) totaled 21 saves to earn the win, while Laker goalie Matt Violin (1-1-1) stopped 30 shots.

Miami finished 4-for-5 on the power play, while LSSU was 0-for-3.

The Lakers and RedHawks meet again at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday.
