The Colorado College Tigers won their exhibition game against McGill, 3-2.

One day after the Denver Pioneers drew a 2-2 tie with the McGill University Redmen, the Colorado College Tigers were able to defeat the Redmen, 3-2. The Tigers used the power play to their advantage in the first period, as they scored all three of their goals then.

Early in the first period, forward Alexander Krushelnyski found the back of the next at 3:33 with the help of Michael Boivin and Jaden Schwartz, a contender for WCHA Player of the Year and the Hobey Baker Award. Almost five minutes later, Schwartz added his second assists of the game when Scott Winkler had his power play goal.

McGill added its first goal of the game nearly two minutes after Winkler's score. But Colorado College answered back with its third power play goal. Nick Dineen scored the goal on a poke with less than a minute left in the first period. Rylan Schwartz, Jaden's older brother, had an assist on the play.

The two teams went scoreless in the second period, but McGill's Nicholas Biniek put one past Josh Thorimbert with less than three minutes to play in the final period. Thorimbert made nine saves over the second and third periods while Joe Howe started the game, picked up the win and made 10 saves.

The Tigers will host the U.S. Under-18 Team on Saturday, one day after the Pioneers play them.
