The men’s hockey team came back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Ohio State, 3-2, in the semifinal of the NCAA tournament’s West Regional on Saturday night at Mariucci Arena.

The Red’s first goal was scored by freshman Doug Krantz on an assist from sophomore Byron Bitz just 18 seconds after the Buckeyes took a two-goal lead. Cornell’s second tally came off the stick of junior Chris Abbott on an assist from his brother, Cam, while the game-winner was scored by senior assistant captain Mike Iggulden, with helpers going to classmate Charlie Cook and junior assistant captain Matt Moulson. The point was Moulson’s 100th of his career.

The Red will be hosted by Minnesota, the top seed in the West Regional, on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. The Golden Gophers advanced after a 1-0 overtime win over Maine.
