Less than four minutes away from a much-needed road victory, a defensive lapse forced Colorado College to settle for a tie.

Alaska-Anchorage’s Scott Allen spun and got enough on a shot to get the puck to trickle past CC goalie Joe Howe to tie the game with 3:55 remaining to help the Seawolves scratch out a 2-2 tie with the Tigers late Friday night.

It was the fourth time in five games Colorado College (10-14-3, 7-10-2 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) built a 2-1 lead, and the Tigers are 2-1-1 in those games.

“It’s a shame, after getting the go-ahead goal on the power play, that we didn’t close it out,” said CC coach Scott Owens, whose team was outshot 31-21 by the conference’s last-place team. “But it’s a point on the road. We played a pretty good road game.

“We’ve just got to come back better tomorrow.”

Andrew Hamburg’s redirect of an Ian Young shot on the power play gave the Tigers a 2-1 lead with 6:33 remaining, but CC could not hold the lead.

The Seawolves (3-16-6, 1-15-5) turned a Scott Wamsganz turnover deep in Colorado College’s zone into a 1-0 lead on a Blake Tatchell goal just 3:13 into the game, and UAA had a great chance to take a two-goal lead late in the first.

CC’s Jeff Collett was given a five-minute major and game misconduct that resulted in his ejection with 6:44 left in the period after checking the Seawolves’ Scott Warner hard into the boards from behind, but UAA penalties nullified the advantage.

Alexander Krushelnyski tied the game with 2:49 remaining in the period with a 4-on-4 goal off a pass from Peter Stoykewych.

The teams finished their two-game set late Saturday night.
