Tigers 5, Mavs 2, final

Minnesota State thought it had freshman goaltending sensation Richard Bachman figured out when it took a 2-0 lead on No. 4 Colorado College. But Bachman stopped 20 shots in the second period and finished with 33 to allow his team to score five unanswered goals.

The Tigers scored three power-play goals, including Scott McCulloch's game-winner with 3:07 remaining in the second period.

The Mavericks had a prime chance to take that 3-2 lead during a 5-on-3 power play with about five minutes left in the second, but Bachman nearly did a cartwheel to kick away Kael Mouillierat's open shot below the right circle.

"I was stunned," Mouillierat said.

Shane,

What is wrong with the Mavs penalty kill it has drop off the face of the earth the second half of the year. What changes should they make to improve it?
