‘Krush’ comes up big in OT
Colorado College junior forward Alexander Krushelnyski’s game-winning goal against Wisconsin 25 seconds into overtime Friday was the second OT winner and third game-winner of his career. He scored on a penalty shot on Dec. 2, 2011, to beat Denver in OT at the World Arena. The only Tiger to play every game these three seasons, Krushelnyski had an assist and has 10 multiple-point games.
Freshman forward Cody Bradley, who has three assists on the season, did not dress for the Tigers’ two-game set against the Badgers due to what is being termed by CC coach Scott Owens as an “upper-body injury.” … Rylan Schwartz’s assist in Friday’s overtime win over Wisconsin moved the senior forward into 62nd on CC’s all-time scoring list with 111 points (40g, 71a). He needs 15 more points to crack into the Tigers’ top 50. … For CC fans wanting to check out the Tigers’ big game against DU at the World Arena on Nov. 16, they may want to secure their tickets now, because only 500 remain. In addition, if fans purchase a CC-DU game ticket at the World Arena, they can also then purchase a matching CC vs. Bemidji State (Nov. 9-10) ticket for $5 each. … Nine of the Tigers’ next 10 games will be at the World Arena, with only a trip to Denver to play DU on Nov. 17 breaking up the home stand. CC next leaves the friendly confines of Colorado for a two-game series Dec. 14-15 at St. Cloud State, a weekend that will conclude the Tigers’ 2012 schedule. They return to action Jan. 4-5 at Nebraska-Omaha. … Saturday’s crowd of 10,694 at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wis., was the largest group to see CC play this season.
