Miami allowed three goals in the first 16 minutes and was unable to recover, falling back into last place in the NCHC.
The RedHawks dropped to 2-9-2 in their last 13 games.
Just 92 seconds into the game, Alex Roos found the net to give the Tigers the lead.
Colorado College’s Gustav Oloffson made it 2-0 less than five minutes later, and Charlie Taft extended Colorado College’s lead to three with 4:46 left in the opening frame.
Miami was shut out until the final minute when junior forward Cody Murphy cut the lead to two. But the Tigers sealed it on an empty netter by Alex Krushelyski.
The RedHawks were outshot, 12-9 in the first period and 10-7 in the middle stanza before taking 15 of the 20 shots in the third period.
This was the first time the RedHawks dropped to two games below .500 since Nov. 5, 2011.
MORE MISERABLE CRAP: This team had not won a game since Dec. 6, and Miami’s last opponent, Nebraska-Omaha, had not won since Nov. 23 before beating the RedHawks.
Colorado College had two wins all season entering this game. This was the second time this season the Tigers netted four goals in a game.
There’s little else to say – a Miami team with one of the most talented offensive corps in the country rarely completed simple passes and its defense gave up too many scoring chances.
The RedHawks have won at least 23 games each season during their eight-year NCAA tournament run, but with 11 games remaining in the regular season they would need to win out just to get to 20.
At that point they would need to get hot in the inaugural NCHC Tournament.
Does anyone who has watched Miami the past couple of months think that’s going to happen after consecutive losses to teams that hadn’t won in nearly two months each?
