After giving up the first goal eight minutes into the first period, Miami found the net six straight times en route to a 6-1 win at Colorado College on Saturday.
Cody Bradley gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead at the eight-minute mark of the first period.
But six minutes later, sophomore forward Riley Barber scored on the power play to tie the score.
The RedHawks would find the net five times in a seven-minute span of the second period.
Barber gave Miami the lead with 13:30 left in the middle stanza.
Freshman forward Justin Greenberg gave the RedHawks the lead with his first career goal less than two minutes later. Freshman forward Anthony Louis made it 3-1 off a feed from Barber.
Just 26 seconds after Louis’ goal, sophomore defenseman Matthew Caito made it 4-1.
Junior defenseman Ben Paulides capped off the scoring with 6:37 to play in the second stanza.
Barber finished with two goals and an assist, and Louis notched his first career three-point game, tallying a goal and two helpers.
Miami was outshot, 17-3 in the first period but scored on its lone shot on the man advantage. The RedHawks were 3-for-3 on the power play in the second period.
Miami is off next weekend and will host Western Michigan on Feb. 7-8.
MORE MISERABLE CRAP: Obviously the win is welcome – it was the RedHawks’ first since Dec. 7 – but a team that was ranked No. 2 entering the season should blow out a bad team.
And by the way that team should also not lose to the same team by three goals the night before.
What does one take from this game? Miami didn’t lose to team that was previously 2-16-4 with no wins in a month and a half for the second straight night, and maybe – just maybe – this team might’ve realized that it has its back against the wall and it needs to buy into Coach Enrico Blasi’s system.
Another week off increases the likelihood junior forward Blake Coleman returns as well.
Miami is tied for 29th in the PairWise, so urgency doesn’t begin to describe the situation
