New Hampshire freshman defenseman Max Gildon scored three goals in the first two periods and Colorado College's special teams had a bad night in a 6-3 loss in Durham, N.H.

The No. 17 Wildcats (5-0) took four trips to the penalty box with CC down in the third period, but the Tigers (3-2) couldn't get back into the game. Colorado College went 1 for 6 on the power play and the penalty kill gave up two goals on three power plays.

"Certainly we've got to shore up that PK a little bit more, but we had a lot of chances to score," coach Mike Haviland told KRDO after the game.

The Wildcats pounced early as Gildon scored 1:58 into the game after Kristian Blumenschein took a tripping penalty. Brendan van Riemsdyk got behind the Tigers defense and scored 6:55 into the second period to double the lead.

Freshman Troy Conzo picked up a loose puck and wristed in his first career goal 1:17 later to pull Colorado College within one. 

Gildon, a Florida Panthers draft pick, scored his second of the night past a screened Alex Leclerc, then completed his hat trick on an odd-man rush 1:05 later.

Mason Bergh scored in his third straight game before the end of the second period. Linemates Trey Bradley and Nick Halloran earned assists.

New Hampshire's Liam Blackburn scored early in the third to make it 5-2. Tigers defenseman Andrew Farny scored his first of the season on the power play with 2:59 to play, but Colorado College got no closer and the Wildcats tacked on an empty-netter. The Tigers put 48 shots on New Hampshire goaltender Danny Tirone.

CC will seek a series split Saturday night.
