Huskies’ bark no match for Dinos’ offensive bite

By Ashton Chugh, January 15 2015 —

Spring cleaning came early for the Dinos men’s hockey team as they swept the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in back-to-back games on Jan. 9 and 10.

Game one featured a balanced offensive from the Dinos as they scored two goals each period on route to a 6–3 victory. Huskies goaltender Ryan Holfeld allowed six different Dinos to find the back of the net.

Dinos forward Phil Tot scored his first Canadian Interuniversity Sport goal three minutes into the game on a power play. Defenceman Alex Dzielski made it 2–0 midway through the period on a nifty tip-in off a shot from the blueline.

The Huskies tied up the game in the second frame. Five minutes into the period, defenceman Zak Stebner scored to make it 2–1. Six minutes later, forward Jesse Ross evened the score for the Huskies with a shot that beat Dinos goalie Kris Lazaruk.

Forward Chris Collins countered a minute-thirty later to give the Dinos a 3–2 lead.

Collins crashed the net through a sea of traffic to put in his 11th goal of the season. With a minute left in the period, forward Brooke Myers took advantage of a two-on-one opportunity by scoring the eventual game winner for the Dinos.

Lazaruk made 35 saves in the win for the Dinos. His 1.76 goals against average leads the CIS.

The Dinos tested Huskies rookie goaltender Jordon Cooke throughout game two as they outshot Saskatchewan 30–16 on their way to a 5–2 win.

Kevin King scored the game-winning goal on a shorthanded opportunity five minutes into the third period. King beat Huskies goalie Jordan Cooke on his blocker side after pilfering the puck.

Forward Ryan Harrison scored twice for the Dinos in the third period, while goalie Jacob DeSerres made 14 saves.

The win improves Calgary’s record to 15–7–0, which is good for second place in the Canada West division.

The Dinos will take on the Mount Royal Cougars in a crucial back-to-back series on Jan. 15–16.  Their game goes at 7:45 p.m. following the women’s match at the Saddledome.
