Cornell opens series vs. Northern Michigan with 2-2 tie

Freshman forward Ben Berard scored a power-play goal 3 minutes, 23 seconds into the third period, and for a second straight game the Cornell men’s hockey team erased a third-period deficit to salvage a tie — this time by a score of 2-2 against Northern Michigan on Friday night at Lynah Rink.

Playing for the first time since it gained the top spot in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine nation polls, Cornell (12-1-3) killed off two major penalties to remain unbeaten in its last five games. Berard’s goal came on a one-timer set up by junior forward Brenden Locke after 17th-ranked Northern Michigan (13-7-3) had taken its second lead of the game late in the second.
