Ryan Poehling started the game on Friday night and St. Cloud State drew a penalty four seconds into the game. Interestingly, he did not start the power play, and one would think it was not because he was tuckered out after four seconds. He played the second half of the power play but didn’t accomplish much, sitting back and not getting involved in the play.
His second shift also involved more watching than doing, and Omaha ended up opening the scoring with a point shot.
Third shift Poehling got his feet moving and drove the possession on two rushes where he fed teammates who failed to capitalize on the resultant scoring threats.
