ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud State Huskies Men's Hockey team came out on top after a 5-4 back and forth affair Saturday evening.

Both teams led at different times throughout the contest. SCSU scored early when Jimmy Schuldt blasted a one-timer from the point on the power-play putting SCSU up 1-0.

The Huskies thought they scored a few minutes later when a puck was redirected off of Ryan Poehling's skate. Officials waved off the goal as they said it was a kicking motion that directed the puck into the net.

Poehling would get redemption late in the game. With SCSU down 4-3 late in the third Poehling finished a one-timer past a sprawling Alaska goalie to send the game into overtime.

In OT it was another Poehling that was the hero. Jack Poehling sent a feed to Nick Poehling that he finished to earn the Huskies the 5-4 OT win over the University of Alaska - Fairbanks.
