Ferris State scored a power play goal in each period on their way to blanking the University of Toronto 5-0 in Sunday's exhibition.
Both teams remained deadlocked until the less than four minutes remained in the opening period, when sophomore forwards Jordie Johnston and Matthew Kirzinger helped to set-up a man-advantage marker for defenseman Scott Czarnowczan.
Just over two minutes later, freshman forward Justin Buzzeo added an insurance goal after finishing off a pass from senior defenseman Chad Bilins.
A slashing call against the Varsity Blues midway through the second allowed the Bulldogs to set-up another power play goal, which would be the lone score of the period. Johnston banged one in with 12:34 elapsed to give both Billins and Kirzinger their second assists of the contest.
In a third period chock full of penalties and misconducts, Ferris State continued to protect their lead, adding goals from junior Kyle Bonis and freshman T.J. Schlueter.
Bulldogs' head coach Bob Daniels had all three of his netminders (Taylor Nelson, C.J. Motte and Rob Granett) each play separate periods, with Nelson tallying a team-high 10 saves.
Ferris State officially opens the 2011-2012 season this Friday and Saturday when they travel to St. Lawrence, New York for a two-game tilt against the Saints.
