Naclerio Leads Brown Back for 3-3 Tie with Denver

Mark Naclerio - Eric Peterson (Brown Athletics)

Brown was playing its first game in almost two months with a fully healthy roster.

Denver, Colo -- Mark Naclerio scored his sixth and seventh goals of the season in the third period to help Brown overcome two one-goal deficits and salvage a 3-3 tie with host Denver University.

Matt Lorito assisted on all three goals and scored the only goal in the shootout that is unofficial. The result will go down in the record books as a tie. Tyler Steel made 24 saves on 27 shots for Brendan Whittet's Bears.

Pioneers defenseman Joey LaLeggia scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play. Emil Romig and David Makowski scored the other goals for Jim Montgomery's squad. Sam Brittain stopped 40 shots.

The two teams will meet again Saturday night at Magness Arena for the series finale.
