Penn State's Nick Spillane scored his second goal of the day right after but Kirst kept the Villanova offense going.  He assisted Colin Crowley's first career goal with just over 11 to play in regulation.
Christian Cuccinello would score two of the Wildcats final four goals in the fourth, Jared Nugent and Seibel scored the others, this put the Villanova up 16-15 with just over four left.  The Nittany Lion's called a time out with a minute remaining, they were able to capitalize when Kevin Hill completed his hat trick to tie the game up. 
It only took Kluh 40 seconds into the first overtime to score the game winner on a fast break where he was able to loss his defender and get his shot to fall in the top corner.
