ANN ARBOR, Mich.; February 21, 2014 - After sophomore Casey Bailey (Anchorage, Alaska) tied the game with five seconds left in regulation, freshman David Goodwin (Des Peres, Mo.) completed the comeback as his overtime game-winner lifted the Penn State men's hockey team to a 5-4 victory against No. 10/10 Michigan at Yost Ice Arena Friday night.

The Nittany Lions, who improved to 6-19-2 overall and 2-10-1-0 in the Big Ten, exploded for five goals against a Michigan (14-10-3, 6-6-1-1 Big Ten) defense that entered the game averaging fewer than two goals against per game at home. Penn State, which defeated the Wolverines Feb. 8 for its first conference win, sent Michigan to its fourth straight loss with its first conference road victory.

The Nittany Lions erased a 3-1 deficit after the first period to tie game with Bailey's power-play goal in the second and Dylan Richard's (Sherwood Park, Alta.) shorthanded breakaway less than five minutes into the third. After Michigan secured the go-ahead tally with 2:02 left in regulation, Bailey's second marker tied the game as Matthew Skoff (McKees Rocks, Pa.), who made 32 saves, was pulled for an extra skater.

With less than a minute to play in the extra frame, Goodwin and linemate Zach Saar (Richland, Mich.) entered the offensive zone on a two-on-one before Goodwin wired a shot high blocker.

Bailey, who netted his first two-goal game since Dec. 29, 2012, finished the game with six points in his last six games. Goodwin scored the first two-goal game of his career, while Richard added an assist for his second multi-point game of the year.

Penn State, which out shot the Wolverines by a 44-36 margin, went 1-for-4 on the power play, while Michigan finished 1-for-5 with the man advantage. Michigan netminder Zach Nagelvoort made 39 saves.
