Michigan Tech outplayed Colorado College when the two teams were even strength, but could not stop the Tigers on the power play and ended up getting swept on the road, 4-1 and 8-5, this past weekend.
The Huskies were unable to stay out of the box and keep the Tigers from finding the back of the net on the penalty kill. While the defense allowed 12 goals on the weekend, only one of the 12 goals scored were even strength, two were on an empty net, one was shorthanded and eight were power-play goals.
MTU captain Malcolm Gwilliam scored the only goal for the Huskies Friday night and put two more in on Saturday. MTU also received goals from Anthony Schooley, Alex MacLeod and Deron Cousens. Tech had a two-goal lead twice in the second period on Saturday, but could not keep it.
Huskies head coach Jamie Russell summed up the weekend, saying, "Power play sucked, didn't it?"
Michigan Tech (1-3-0, 0-2-0 WCHA) continues WCHA play at home this upcoming weekend against St. Cloud State.
