ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Drew LeBlanc scored twice in the second period to lift St. Cloud State to a 2-1 men’s college hockey win over Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on Friday.

LeBlanc’s first goal on the power play at 12:54 of the second period tied the game 1-1. RPI (5-7-4) had taken a 1-0 lead on Matt Tinordi’s goal just 2:43 into the game. LeBlanc netted the winner at 19:37 of the second.
