After tie, Beavers edged by Michigan Tech in 3-on-3 overtime

HOUGHTON, Mich. (MacInnes Student Ice Arena) -- Charlie Combs scored twice and Adam Brady added a goal and an assist to help the Bemidji State University men's hockey team erase a one-goal deficit late in the third period. The Beavers officially earned a tie after a scoreless five-minute 5-on-5 overtime period, but the Huskies would capitalize in the 3-on-3 period to earn an extra point in the standings.

The Beavers jumped out to a 1-0 lead at the 8:55 mark of the first period on a goal form Brady and would cling to the lead until the Huskies posted back-to-back tallies separated by 1:44 midway through the second frame. A Combs' power-play strike at the 18:36 mark allowed the Beavers to even the score, but a 4-on-4 goal put MTU up 3-2 with just over 16 minutes to play.

Combs buried his second goal of the night and fourth of the season at the 14:18 mark, unleashing a blast that was deflected in front by a MTU stick and past the Huskies' goaltender Devin Karo.

An action packed overtime period oped with an MTU penalty just 35 seconds in. The Beavers were unable to convert the opportunity. Despite both teams getting chances during the extra five minutes, neither was able to light the scoreboard and the teams settled for a draw.

The BSU power-play unit was 1-for-6 counting only the Combs' power-play marker in six tries. The Beavers' penalty-kill unit was 4-for-5 on the night.

Henry Johnson, who collected 27 saves for the Beavers, including a pair of game-saving stops at the buzzer, moved to 3-3-1 following the draw.

The Beavers move to 6-5-2 overall and 4-2-1-0 in WCHA play.

BSU and MTU will play game two of the league series tomorrow. Opening face off is set for 6:07 p.m. (CT) from MacInnes Student Ice Arena.
