Late goal lifts St. Thomas to second win, giving Blasi career victory No. 400

The Tommies were outshot 41-16 but John Schuldt's goal with 3 seconds left was enough.

BIG RAPIDS, Minn. -- St. Thomas is playing .500 ball -- against Ferris State -- thanks to John Schuldt's game-winning goal with 3 seconds left on Saturday, Jan. 15, at Ewigleben Ice Arena.

The Tommies, in their inaugural season as a Division I program, went into Saturday night's CCHA game against the Bulldogs, owning a 1-22 record. With a 4-3 win -- despite being outshot 41-16 -- the Tommies split their season series with Ferris.

The win was also the 400th career victory for head coach Rico Blasi, who formerly coached at Miami.

The Tommies raced ahead 3-0 with goals by Cameron Recchi and two by Tim Piechowski (including one shorthanded) before Ferris State stormed back in the third period.

Skating with an extra attacker, Blake Evennou tied the game for the Bulldogs at 19:06 before Schuldt's heroics.


Peter Thome of the Tommies stopped 38 shots for the win.
