For the second night in a row Miami and Vermont battled in a back and fourth game but tonight it ended in a tie 3-3 in Burlington, Vt.
The first period was a battle with lots of pushing and shoving in front of each net. After a penalty was given to Will Weber for holding it looked like Vermont might strike first. Tommy Wingels had other ideas as he intercepted a neutral ice pass and scored the first RedHawk shorthanded goal of the season to give the Red and White a 1-0 lead.
The RedHawks lead grew in the second, when Alexandre Lacombe found the net on assists from Bill Loupee and Brandon Smith. The point for Smith is the first of his career.
Vermont would battle back as Corey Carlson found the net at 15:58 of second. Peter Lenes found Carlson in the slot and he beat Connor Knapp to make it a one score game. Fifty-five seconds later, Kevan Miller evened the score at two as he slammed home a shot from the blue line with assists from Dean Strong and Wahsontiio Stacey.
In the third period Miami took the lead with 1:35 into the period when Brian Kaufman picked off a pass from in neutral ice and netted his first goal of the season. Peter Lenes tied the game at 5:25 of the third off assists from Dean Strong and Kyle Medvec.
