Broncos Blanked by Tigers, 3-0
Lukas Hafner made 27 saves in net but the Broncos were blanked after Josh Thorimbert made the necessary 17 saves to earn the shutout. WMU was outshot 30-17 on the night and held scoreless on four power play opportunities.
Charlie Taft netted a goal on a breakaway just 21 seconds into the third period to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead.
Just after a Bronco power play ended, Colorado College was able to capitalize on a scrum around the net and Luc Gerdes netted his first career goal to push the lead to 2-0 at 3:26.
Sam Rothstein netted his second goal on the weekend with 3:05 left in the third period to ice the game for Colorado College, giving them a 3-0 lead. Jaccob Slavin fired a shot from the left point and the rebound bounced to the right side of the net where Rothstein punched it into an open goal.
