DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Caleb Herbert’s goal early in the third period gave Minnesota Duluth the lead for good, as the top-ranked Bulldogs edged Alabama-Huntsville 4-3 Saturday in men’s college hockey.

Minnesota Duluth (17-4-3), which won Friday’s game 2-1, struggled for the second straight night against the Chargers (2-24-1).

Andrew Creppin had a goal and an assist for UAH. Teammate Tom Durnie scored to send the game into the third period tied 3-3.

Herbert scored at 2:52 of the third.

The Bulldogs outshot UAH 47-17. Chargers goalie Clarke Saunders kept the game close with 43 saves. UMD had a 99-35 shots-on-goal advantage in the two games.

Aaron Crandall made 14 saves as UMD extended its home winning streak to eight games.
