CC recruits Tim Hall and Nick Dineen, both tabbed to join the Tigers next fall, each picked up goal and an assist in a come-from-behind 7-6 overtime victory over Belarus in the World Junior A Challenge.
The win pits the U.S. against Canada East in a sell-out game tonight in Nelson, B.C.
Trailing 4-1 in the second period, the U.S. drew within two goals thanks to Hall's power-play goal, assisted by Blake Kessel (New Hampshire commit). Hall picked up an assist on Kessel's 4-on-3 score with two minutes left in the period to cut Belarus' lead to 4-3.
At 4:20 of the third, Belarus ahead 5-3, Dineen scored to keep the U.S. within a goal. Just 24 seconds later, Dineen assisted a game-tying goal by Ben Blood (North Dakota commit).
