Michigan Tech scored only three goals on the weekend, but were able to beat Colorado College in a best-of-three series behind the pads of Micheal-Lee Teslak.
Teslak (pictured) recorded his record-tying fourth shutout of the year in the third game of the series, which advanced the Huskies to the WCHA Final Five for the first time since 1996.
Friday, MTU took the lead in the series when they beat CC in overtime, 2-1, as Jimmy Kerr tapped a rebound past the CC netminder 39 seconds into the extra frame. Peter Rouleau scored Tech's first goal in the second stanza. Teslak also made 27 saves to secure the win.
Saturday saw the Tigers come back and get a 2-0 win with a dominant performance. MTU was outplayed from the drop of the first puck to the end. Teslak played solid in net, but was unable to stop the shots. He made 20 saves.
Sunday night, the Huskies regained their confidence and scored the only goal of the game in the first period. It was Ryan Bunger who was credited with the goal as he tapped home a rebound. From there on out it was Teslak who stole the show, making a handful of unbelievable saves. He ended the night 18 saves.
Michigan Tech (18-16-5, 11-12-5) will meet Wisconsin in the Thursday night game at the Xcel Energy Center in Minneapolis.
