KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Richard Zehnal scored 35 seconds into overtime to give No. 11 Western Michigan a 3-2 victory over Colorado College on Friday night.

Zehnal took a pass from Hugh McGing and placed a backhander past CC goalie Alex Leclerc, who had 40 saves, to make WMU 8-0-1 over the Tigers in Kalamazoo.

The Tigers (9-11-3, 3-8-2-1 NCHC) rallied from a 1-0 deficit to take a 2-1 lead midway through the third period thanks to goals from Trevor Gooch and Troy Conzo. Gooch evened the score at 1-1 with his eighth goal of the season at the 2:15 mark of the final frame on an assist from Branden Makara.

Conzo then gave CC the lead at the 12:16 mark with the second goal of his career. Christiano Versich found Conzo, who went top shelf against Ben Blacker. After Gooch was called for delay of game just over a minute later, Paul Stoykewych made it 2-2.

Stoykewych is the younger brother of former Tigers defenseman Peter Stoykewych, who played at CC from 2011-15.

The Broncos (13-9-1, 8-5-0-0 NCHC) scored twice in five power plays, while the Tigers were blanked on seven power plays.

"We have nobody to blame but ourselves," Colorado College coach Mike Haviland said. "We had nine minutes of power play in the second period and only two shots. ...

"Alex played well tonight."
