First period: Fasching goal gives McClanahan lead

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Hudson Fasching scored the only goal of the first period, giving Team McClanahan a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes at the inaugural CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.

Ryan Fitzgerald carried the puck down the left side into the Team Housley zone and showed great patience waiting for Fasching to find space at the far post, where he tapped the puck past Team Housley goalie Eamon McAdam at 15:54.

Team Housley outshot Team McClanahan 6-4 in the period, and play was fairly even and high-paced.

Each team had strong scoring chances midway through the first period. Team McClanahan's Cole Cassels and Jacob Montgomery had a 2-on-1 break, but McAdam made a strong save to deny Cassels. Less than a minute later, play went the other way, with J.T. Compher and Ross Olsson breaking away from the pack for Team Housley. Compher dropped a pass for Ian McCoshen, but his shot went wide of the net.

Cal Peterson, in goal for Team McClanahan, played well in the final minute of the period to preserve the lead.

Back with more after the second period.
