ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The University of Alaska Anchorage hockey team entered the second half of the season with one of its best performances, showing no signs of a 35-day layoff. The Seawolves blistered 17th-ranked Colorado College, 4-1, scoring all four goals on special teams.
UAA's power play ranked dead last in the WCHA, coming in at just under 13 percent, but the Seawolves scored three times on the man advantage against the Tigers. Tommy Grant buried a power-play strike and an unassisted shorthanded goal in the first period to give UAA a 2-0 lead. Grant's 10 goals led the Seawolves.
Craig Parkinson took a nice feed by Jordan Kwas and made it 3-0 on another power-play goal in the second. Mitch Bruijsten's man-advantage goal in the third stood as the final margin.
Freshman goalie Rob Gunderson made 21 saves to grab the win. The victory puts UAA alone in 8th place in the WCHA, at 5-8-2.
