No. 4 CC 1, No. 10 Minnesota State-Mankato 2 (end of 1st period)

The Tigers nearly worked their way out of an early deficit, but Minnesota State goaltender Mike Zacharias played a brilliant first period, saving 13 of 14 shots, including three on a CC power play with less than two minutes to go.
CC went down after 48 seconds when Kael Mouillierat intercepted a pass at the blue line and scored from the left circle. At 13:50, Mavericks center Zach Harrison hit left wing Jon Kalinski as he streaked in the slot. Kalinski made a nifty move and flicked the puck to right wing Mick Berge who finished for the 2-0 lead.
The Tigers capitalized on their first power play, scoring on a play that has provided three of their last four goals. Defenseman Jack Hillen got the puck in the high slot, drew a Minnesota State penalty-killer, and passed to center Chad Rau at the left circle. Rau gathered the puck and ripped a wrist shot past Zacharias' glove side.
