11/15 Recap: Eidsness stellar in win

Brad Eidsness put forth a spectacular performance in the North Dakota crease, making 23 saves in the Sioux's 3-1 win over Alaska-Anchorage. The freshman bailed out the NoDak D on more than one occasion, with the only goal against coming on a funky deflection. The rookie moves to 4-3 on the season and is firmly cemented as the #1 goalie in Grand Forks. Freshman Corey Fienhage was a scratch for the winners. In the OHL, Nick Crawford was on the ice for one goal against and one goal for in Saginaw's lengthy 4-3 shootout loss Windsor. The Spirit made things difficult for arguably the CHL's top club all night including in the shootout, where it took 14 rounds before the Spits could get their second (and game deciding) goal. Crawford was stopped in the tenth round. Top 2009 draft prospect Taylor Hall scored two goals to help put the Spits at 21-2 on the year, while Saginaw falls to 12-7-0-1. Drew Schiestel (-1) had a power play assist in Niagara's 6-2 win over Peterborough. The helper was his 11th of the season with the man advantage and 20th overall. Alex Pietrangleo collected three assists for the Dogs in his first game back after playing eight NHL games with the Blues. In the CCHA, Corey Tropp (-1) scored the only Spartan goal as #17 Michigan State lost to #10 Miami, 3-1. The goal, his first of the year, stemmed from a solid effort down low to score on a slapper with less than ten minutes to play in the third. With the weekend sweep, the Spartans are likely to drop out of the Top 20. Senior Andrew Orpik picked up an assist in BC's wild 8-6 win over #6 New Hampshire. Jimmy Hayes (TOR) notched a hat trick and an assist to pace the #5 Eagles. Alex Biega (2 PIM, 4 SOG) was held scoreless in Harvard's 1-0 shutout of #19 St. Lawrence. The junior did however play a pivotal part in killing off a :90 5-3 power play that spanned the second and third periods. Matt Generous posted two shots on goal for the Saints in the loss. Justin Jokinen did not dress for the second straight game as #11 Minnesota State lost to Colorado College, 4-3.
