Brett Gravelle recorded his second consecutive two-goal game and the host Tommie Men's Hockey team scored the go-ahead and insurance goals in the last 3:00 as UST scored a 6-4 win over St. Olaf Saturday night in Mendota Heights. That capped a weekend sweep for UST.

St. Thomas (14-6-1 overall, 9-2-1 MIAC) extended its season win streak to seven and moved alone into the conference lead with four games left in the regular season.

Broydon Stufko scored with 2:03 remaining to break a 4-4 tie. Johnny Panvica scored an empty-net goal in the closing seconds. Panvica and Brian LeBlanc scored power-play goals.

UST outshot the Oles 36-23.

The Toms play St. John's next weekend -- Friday night in St. Cloud and Saturday night in Mendota Heights.
