College men's hockey: Saints grab extra point after tying Johnnies
Filimon Ledenkov had a pair of goals for CSS.
DULUTH — A see-saw battle at Mars Lakeview Arena ended with St. Scholastica taking a little extra from the playground on Friday.
After a game that was tied at 1, 2, 3 and 4, the Saints finished tied 5-5 with St. John's in the second game of a Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference men's hockey series.
CSS goaltender Jack Branby was perfect in the ensuing shootout and Arkhip Ledenkov scored the shootout winner as the Saints came away with an extra point in the MIAC standings.
Neither side ever led by more than a goal. CSS was up 2-1 after a period and then down 3-2 in the second frame before Karl Wright and Michael Talbot scored 22 seconds apart to give the Saints a 4-3 lead at the second intermission. However, SJU's Lewis Crosby tied it at 4 with 8:53 to play, then tied it at 5 with 4:24 left.
Branby made 32 saves for the Saints, who got a pair of goals from Filimon Ledenkov.
CSS (6-6-2, 3-4-1 MIAC) plays at Concordia (Moorhead) next Friday and Saturday.
