SCSU Swept Out Of NCHC Playoffs
The St. Cloud State University men’s hockey team was swept out of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference playoffs with a 4-3, last second loss to Miami University. The RedHawks advance to play at Target Center next weekend, while the Huskies will learn their NCAA Tournament fate next Sunday.
The Huskies charted a pair of second period goals for a 2-0 lead entering the third period. The RedHawks tied the game with a pair of goals early in the third before Nic Dowd’s goal on a 5-on-3 power play gave SCSU a 3-2 lead at 9:20.
Miami University scored on a power play following a Ryan Papa cross check at 12:08 of the third period to tie the game, then scored the game-winner with just 2.6 seconds remaining.
