DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Michigan Tech goalie Josh Robinson had 29 saves to beat top-ranked Minnesota Duluth 5-0 Saturday, handing the Bulldogs their first shutout in 104 games.

One night after scoring four straight goals to earn a 4-4 tie, Michigan Tech (12-13-1, 9-8-1) scored four times in the first period. The Huskies' nine Western Collegiate Hockey Association wins exceeds their total of the last three seasons combined.

Robinson had a game-high 11 saves in the second period.

UMD goalie Kenny Reiter gave up four goals on 14 shots in the first period and was replaced by Aaron Crandall, who made 17 saves.

Michigan Tech took advantage of the Bulldogs' two first-period penalties. Blake Pietila and David Johnstone scored power-play goals. Pietila added two assists.
