Parting shot

Colorado College took No. 11 Western Michigan to overtime twice last weekend, leaving the building with its first-ever win thanks to Nick Halloran’s quick, top-shelf shot through several bodies right off a faceoff.

It was named NCAA Hockey’s No. 2 play of the week.

“We’ve talked about not stick-handling and just getting your releases off quicker. (Halloran) got it off and didn’t waste any time,” CC coach Mike Haviland said.

“Unbelievable shot.”

Filling in

The CC freshmen rose to the challenge again at Western Michigan, with the Tigers missing several regulars and losing even more as the weekend went on, including co-captain Tanner Ockey and forward Kade Kehoe. Defenseman Cole McCaskill hasn’t played since Dec. 30.

“Tanner’s day to day right now, so our faceoffs become really crucial with him out of the lineup,” Haviland said.

As the Tigers saw again in Kalamazoo, one draw can be the difference between a win and a loss. Mason Bergh won that faceoff in overtime but hasn’t been as steady as he wants to be.

“It’s an area he knows he has to get better at,” Haviland said. “It’s an art, and I think he takes it personal.”
