Ferris State 4, Ohio State (Guenin) 5 (OT)
The No. 7 Ohio State men's hockey team scored three unanswered goals, capped off by freshman John Dingle's overtime gamewinner, to come back and defeat Ferris State, 5-4, Sunday in Value City Arena. The win gives the Buckeyes the Central Collegiate Hockey Association first-round series victory, sending the squad to the CCHA Super Six at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit March 17-19. The Buckeyes trailed, 4-2, with just under 14 minutes remaining in regulation, but Matt Beaudoin scored shorthanded at 9:55 to cut the FSU lead to one and Jason DeSantis tied the game with a goal with just 50 seconds left. Dingle's goal came 4:40 into the extra session. The No. 2-seed Buckeyes now are 26-9-4 on the year, while the No. 11 Bulldogs end their season 13-22-4. Ohio State won the series opener, 4-2, before Ferris State won the second game in overtime, 1-0, to send the series into the decisive third game. OSU blueliner Nate Guenin collected two penalty minutes and three blocked shots in the win.
