Colorado College 2, Omaha 2

Omaha, Neb.: Alec Calvaruso made a career-high 34 saves in his second career start and Nick Halloran scored the game-tying goal as Colorado College and Omaha tied Saturday night.

The Tigers' Mason Bergh scored in the 3-on-3 overtime period to give CC the extra point in the NCHC standings and create a three-way tie for fifth place between the Tigers, Omaha and Western Michigan with one weekend remaining in the regular season. The Tigers are set to host Western in the regular-season finales.

Tanner Ockey opened the scoring, deflecting a Christiano Versich shot between the legs of Evan Weninger.

The Mavericks scored twice in the second period. In the third, Halloran's shot was saved by Weninger, but a clearing attempt went off an Omaha player's skate and into the net. Halloran was credited with his team-high 19th goal of the season.

"It wasn't the prettiest," Tigers coach Mike Haviland told KRDO after the game.

Air Force 2, Robert Morris 2

Pittsburgh: Air Force and Robert Morris skated to a overtime tie in a regular-season finale.

Air Force finished tied for third in the Atlantic Hockey Conference with Holy Cross and RIT. Due to tiebreakers, Air Force is the No. 5 seed in the AHC Tournament. The Falcons get a bye in the first round and will travel to No. 4 seed Army in the AHC Quarterfinals, March 9-11, in West Point.

Air Force (18-13-5 overall, 13-11-4 AHC) took the first 10 shots of the second period and tied the game off of an offensive zone faceoff. Brady Tomlak won the draw and Phil Boje whistled a shot from the center point that tied the game at 1-1 at 9:08.

Four minutes later, Tomlak gained the zone down the left wing and centered the puck from the bottom of the circle. Freshman Marshall Bowery tipped it in at 13:06 for a 2-1 lead.
