Engineers tie game with goal late in second period

Rensselaer and Colgate will head to the third period tied 1-1 in Game 3 of their ECAC Hockey playoffs quarterfinal-round series.
The Engineers pressured the Raiders net for much of the period but didn't create any Grade A chances. Their perserverance paid off when Mike Bergin put a shot on net. There was a scramble in front for the rebound, with players on both teams swatting at the puck.
A Colgate defender fanned on a clear try and Tyler Helfrich, on his backhand, lifted one past a screened CU goalie Eric Mihalik to tie the game.
RPI has outshot Colgate thus far, 22-12.
