ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Tournament most outstanding player Josh Langfeld tied the game and tournament Jed Ortmayer scored the game-winner as Michigan came back from a one-goal deficit to defeat Alaska-Anchorage 4-3 and win the Johnson Nissan Classic on Saturday.
The Seawolves led 3-2 with less than six minutes remaining before the Wolverines scored a pair of goals just over two minutes apart to steal away the victory.
Langfeld tied it with 6:11 remaining off a feed from Jay Vancik. Ortmayer broke the tie with 3:48 left.
A pair of goals by Anchorage’s Matt Shasby, sandwiched around Ortmayer’s first goal of the game, gave the Seawolves a 2-1 lead after one period. After Andy Hilbert tied things for the Wolverines 6:13 into the second, Vladimir Novak once again gave UAA the lead with 27 seconds left in the period.
Josh Blackburn made 23 saves in earning the win for Michigan. Chris King took the loss in his collegiate debut for Anchorage. He stopped 28 shots.
