1/15 Recap: Eidsness sharp as Sioux tie

In a Big Ten Network match-up, Brad Eidsness made 24 saves as #4 North Dakota skated to a 3-3 tie at Minnesota. Sioux defenseman Corey Fienhage finished the night +1 with a shot on goal.

After an 11-save first period, Eidsness was beaten by a Jordon Schroeder power play shot from the right point at :53 of the second to tie the game 1-1. The Gophers would take a 2-1 lead just 1:45 later when a deflected shot landed on the stick of Patrick White in the slot for an easy goal.

The sophomore was sharp down low throughout, but also flashed some leather in a one-on-one with 2008 prospect camp invitee Jake Cepis midway through the third. The 5'10 Cepis would later score the game-tying goal on a wrister through a pair of collapsing D, and was excellent overall on a line with Schroeder and Zach Budish.

Elsewhere in the NCAA, Corey Tropp was -2 with a shot on goal as #7 Michigan State was outgunned in a 5-2 loss to Notre Dame.

Justin Jokinen was -1 as Minnesota State lost to #10 Duluth, 2-1.

Nick Eno allowed one goal in relief as Bowling Green was hammered by Northern Michigan, 6-0. Eno entered the game with 7:38 remaining in the second period after freshman Andrew Hammond surrendered five goals on 26 shots.

Drew MacKenzie was -1 as #18 Vermont lost to Northeastern, 3-1.

Connor Knapp watched as creasemate Cody Reichard made 23 saves in Miami's 4-0 shutout of Ferris State.

In the OHL, Nick Crawford (-1) picked up a power play assist as Barrie defeated Plymouth, 4-2.

Marcus Foligno played even as Sudbury needed a shootout in a 4-3 win over Oshawa.

In the USHL, Mark Adams was +1 with a checking from behind minor as Chicago lost to Sioux City, 3-2 in the shootout.
