December 8: The St. Lawrence men's hockey team was shut out by No. 16 Clarkson, 3-0, on Saturday night at Cheel Arena in Potsdam, as the teams split the home-and-home series to close out the 2018 schedule. With the loss, the Saints fall to 3-12-1 and 1-4-1 in ECAC Hockey contests, while Clarkson improves to 9-6-0 and 3-3-0 against conference opponents. Junior goaltender Daniel Manella finished with 37 saves, as the Woodbridge, Ontario native made his second consecutive start against the Golden Knights on Saturday. After 37 scoreless minutes, Clarkson's Jere Astren put the home team on the board with his first of the season and the eventual game winner with the teams skating four aside. Astren took a feed from Nico Sturm and beat Mannella with a wrister from the bottom of the right circle high on the glove side at 17:17 to send Clarkson into the second intermission with a 1-0 lead. Clarkson extended its lead to 2-0 midway through the final frame, as Devin Brosseau was able to capitalize on an extremely long shift for the Saints, as they were pinned in the Clarkson zone for two full Golden Knight changes. Brosseau ripped a shot from the slot that went bar down at 10:57 with Nick Campoli and Jack Jacome assisting on the play.   Just over two minutes later, Aaron Thow made it 3-0 in favor of the home team as he picked up a turnover at the St. Lawrence blue line and took a quick shot that beat Mannella on the glove side.   In the final minute of play, Mannella stopped Clarkson from adding a fourth with a big right pad save from point-blank range even after his stick was pushed into the corner seconds earlier.   Cade Gleekel finished with a team-high four shots on goal, while Michael Ederer and Michael Laidley finished with three apiece, but the Saints were outshot 40-15 on the night.   Both teams failed to convert with the man-advantage, as the Saints finished 0-for-2 and Clarkson went 0-for-3.   The Saints will return to action after the New Year on January 4 against Air Force in the first of two games at the Ice Vegas Invitational in Las Vegas.

December 7: On a night dedicated to two of the best former St. Lawrence hockey coaches, the Saints' men's hockey team put together it's best game of the season and downed No. 16 Clarkson, 4-2, at Appleton Arena on Friday night in the first half of an ECAC Hockey home-and-home doubleheader. First-year Ted McGeen scored his first collegiate goal to get the Saints on the board and Ryan Garvey, David Jankowski and Michael Laidley followed with goals of their own in the win. McGeen and Keenan Suthers led the Saints with two points apiece on Friday night. Junior Daniel Mannella made a career-high 48 saves, including 19 in both the second and third periods, to earn his first win of the season and help snap a four-game winless slide for the Saints, both on the season and in the series against Clarkson. With the win, the Saints improve to 3-11-1 on the season with a 1-3-1 mark in conference play. Clarkson drops to 8-6-0 and 2-3-0 against ECAC Hockey opponents. McGeen's first for the Scarlet and Brown at 4:07 of the first period came of a rush into the zone with Suthers, as he was stopped by Clarkson netminder Jake Kielly, but McGeen's shot from the half wall off the rebound ricocheted off a Clarkson defender on the far post and in for a 1-0 St. Lawrence lead. Garvey extended the lead to 2-0 at 7:30 of the second period off another rush with Suthers, burying a rebound as Kielly moved left to right for his second of the season. Clarkson cut the deficit to 2-1 later in the frame with a shorthanded tally from Nico Sturm, as he roofed a shot over Mannella's right shoulder for the Golden Knights' first of the game at 11:41. But with time winding down in the second, David Jankowski was able to regain the two-goal lead for the Saints with his second against Clarkson this season, which served as Friday's game-winning goal. Jankowski picked up the puck at the top of the offensive zone after a long chip from captain Dylan Woolf was mishandled by the Clarkson defense and pushed it over to McGeen on the left-wing side. Rather than shoot, McGeen slipped a pass between a pair of defenders to Jankowski on the far post for a one-time finish behind Kielly at 18:28. Early in the third, Clarkson cut the deficit to one goal once again when Haralds Egle dug the puck out a scrum along the end boards and weaved through the Saints' defense before waiting out Mannella for a forehand tuck inside the far post at 5:20. Senior Michael Laidley gave the Saints some breathing room with 5:50 to play when he ripped a one-time shot from a knee in the slot and beat Kielly high blocker to push to the final 4-2 margin. Rookies Carson Dimoff and Kaden Pickering assisted on the play. Clarkson pulled Kielly for the extra attacker with 2:38 remaining in regulation and kept the Saints pinned in their defensive zone for a majority of that time, but weren't able to put one behind Mannella to close the gap or find the equalizer. Clarkson finished with a 50-30 advantage in shots on goal. Both teams failed convert on the power play on Friday night. The Saints will travel to Cheel Arena for the second half of this weekend's home-and-home for a 7 p.m. puck drop on Saturday night. … St. Lawrence inducted the newest Legends of Appleton Paul Flanagan '80 and Mike McShane during an on-ice ceremony following the first period on Friday night.

More of the Latest Clarkson Women's Hockey Stories

December 8: Some excellent work on the penalty kill and three goals in a stretch of just over 11 minutes gave the Clarkson University Women's Hockey team a weekend sweep of St. Lawrence University as the fifth-ranked Golden Knights claimed a 3-1 victory on Saturday afternoon at Cheel Arena. The Golden Knights moved to 14-4-0 overall and improved to 5-3-0 in ECAC Hockey, while the Saints dropped to 9-10-1 and 4-4-0 in league play. Clarkson will be off for close to a month, returning to action in early January when it takes on Northeastern in the Friendship Four in Belfast, Ireland. Despite an early deficit in shots, it was St. Lawrence that would get on the scoreboard first as the Saints quickly reversed offensive pressure by the Golden Knights. Clarkson was working the puck around in a reset in the St. Lawrence defensive zone when Rachael Smith put pressure on the Clarkson blue line, poking the puck away for a breakaway. Smith skated in unimpeded and tried to beat Clarkson goalkeeper Kassidy Sauve on her stick side, but Sauve stopped the initial attempt before the rebound was banged back in by Smith at 5:54 for a 1-0 St. Lawrence advantage. The goal marked the Saints' first score against Clarkson in 125 minutes, 54 seconds as the Golden Knights had previously posted back-to-back 4-0 shutouts on October 20th and December 7th. The Saints would only enjoy the lead for about five minutes, as Clarkson's top line came through at 11:26. Elizabeth Giguere took a shot from a stride or two inside the blue line and Sonjia Shelly made the save, but was unable to maintain the rebound. Loren Gabel collected the loose puck near the goal line extended and skated up to the middle of the circle, taking a shot at the net. Giguere was there to redirect the attempt, tying the game up 1-1. Less than three minutes later, Clarkson took the lead and would not relinquish it for the rest of the contest. What proved to be the game-winner for Clarkson began with a strong defensive effort. Sauve stopped one shot by the Saints and then Emma Keenan dropped down to block another St. Lawrence attempt. The strategy worked to not only deny an attempt on the Clarkson goal, but the puck was deflected to the stick of Morgan Helgeson. The freshman then tapped a pass forward to Kristy Pidgeon, who skated alongside the left side boards all the way into the St. Lawrence zone. Pidgeon drew the St. Lawrence defense along with her before dropping a centering pass back to Helgeson, who beat Shelly at 14:19. Although Clarkson trailed in shots 13-6 in the second period, the Knights picked up an insurance goal early in the period when St. Lawrence was called for a tripping penalty. It didn't take long for the Green and Gold to cash in with the extra skater, doing so just five seconds after ensuing faceoff. Michaela Pejzlova won the draw and Gabel collected the puck at the top of the right circle, sending a cross ice pass to Giguere, who had floated out to the far post. Giguere then tipped the puck back to T.T. Cianfarano in the slot, and the grad student finished off the play for her 10th goal of the year at 2:33 in the second period. St. Lawrence would have its chances on a power play late in the period, but the Saints got just one shot on goal while another went wide and a third was blocked before the penalty ran out. Clarkson was able to maintain its two-goal advantage in the third thanks to some strong specialty teams play. Clarkson was whistled for two penalties in the third, but the first one was ended with just two shot attempts, both which were blocked by Kelly Mariani. The second power play opportunity for St. Lawrence came in the final five minutes, but again the Saints could not get around Clarkson's defense as two shots went wide and two more were blocked by the Golden Knights defenders. Sauve finished with 26 saves on the afternoon, allowing just the single breakaway goal, while Shelly stopped 27 shots for the Saints. Clarkson possessed a modest 30-27 advantage in shots and went 1-for-2 on the power play, while the Saints were stopped in all four of their extra-skater chances.

December 7: A three-goal burst early in the second period and a 21-save effort from Kassidy Sauve (Whitby, ONT) powered the 5th-ranked Clarkson University Women's Hockey team past St. Lawrence 4-0 in ECAC Hockey action at Appleton Arena in Canton on Friday afternoon. The Golden Knights and Saints will close out their season series with a 3:00 p.m. game at Cheel Arena on Saturday afternoon. Clarkson, which split a non-league weekend with St. Lawrence earlier in the season, improved to 13-4 overall. The Knights snapped a three-game league losing skid to move to 4-3 in conference play. After a scoreless first period, Clarkson broke the rivalry game open with three quick scores in a span of 2:19 to start the second. Sophomore Elizabeth Giguere (Quebec City, QUE) started things off at 3:33, knocking in a centering pass from senior Kelly Mariani (Mississauga, ONT) at the doorstep for her 12th goal of the season. Just 19 seconds later, senior Cassidy Vinkle (Belleville, ONT) finished off a pass from junior Michaela Pejzlova (Pardubice, Czech Rep.) for her second goal of the year and first since the opening game of the season. T.T. Cianfarano (Oswego, NY) started the play by forcing a St. Lawrence turnover in the neutral zone. At 5:52, sophomore Kristy Pidgeon (Ingleside, ONT), found a loose puck at center ice and skated into the Saints' zone where she fired in a shot from the bottom of the right circle for her third goal of the season. Sophomore center Tia Stoddard (La Mesa, CA) added the fourth goal midway through the final period. Just out of the penalty box, Stoddard scored into an empty net at 12:00 for her third goal of the season. Clarkson's penalty-killing unit, backstopped by Sauve, was in top form, shutting down all five of St. Lawrence power play opportunities. The Knights went scoreless on their lone man-advantage. Clarkson outshot the Saints on their home ice 29-21. Sauve posted eight first-period saves, seven in the middle frame and six more stops over the final 20 minutes to record her third shutout of the season and second straight whitewash of St. Lawrence. She also made 22 saves in the 4-0 win over the Saints at Cheel on October 20.

December 8: St. Lawrence University senior forward Rachael Smith scored the first goal of the game, but fifth-ranked Clarkson scored the next three goals to defeat the Saints' women's hockey team 3-1 in an ECAC Hockey contest at Cheel Arena in Potsdam on Saturday afternoon. The loss was the fourth in a row for the Saints, and the second straight against the Golden Knights; Clarkson defeated St. Lawrence 4-0 at Appleton Arena on Friday. "Today's game was a lot like yesterday's game," said St. Lawrence head coach Chris Wells '92. "We had a pile of chances and we just didn't score many goals. It was nice to get out to a 1-0 lead early, and I thought we played great in the second and third periods. We created a lot of chances and put pressure on them. Both goalies made highlight-reel saves and we just couldn't finish. It's a good time to go on break." Smith gave the Saints a 1-0 lead less than six minutes into the game, creating a breakaway by stealing the puck at her own blue line and tucking the puck into the lower left side of the net for her team-best eighth goal of the season. Elizabeth Giguere tied the game for Clarkson, redirecting a feed from Loren Gable into the top right corner of the net. Smith had a chance to give the Saints a 2-1 lead with a look at a wide open net on a rebound, but the puck bounced over her stick. Just moments later, the Golden Knights took a 2-1 lead, as Morgan Helgeson buried a loose puck after Kristy Pidgeon's tough-angle shot went off the side of the net and the puck slid right into the slot. The Golden Knights took a 3-1 lead on a power play goal early in the second period, with T.T. Cianfarano finishing a tic-tac-toe passing play after an offensive zone faceoff with a hard shot from the slot. The goal was just the second power play goal given up by the Saints this season and snapped a run of 11 straight games without giving up a power play goal. Justine Reyes had a great opportunity for the Saints later in the second period, collecting a loose puck in the slot and firing a wrist shot towards the top right corner, but Clarkson goaltender Kassidy Sauve snagged it in her glove to preserve the two-goal lead. After getting outshot 15-5 in the first period, the Saints had a 22-15 advantage in shots on goal in the second and third periods.  Sauve made 26 saves for the Golden Knights, while Sonjia Shelly made 27 saves for St. Lawrence. St. Lawrence, now 9-10-1 overall, 4-4-0 in ECAC Hockey, have five weeks off before their next game, when they will go on the road to face Union and Rensselaer. Clarkson improved to 14-4-0, 5-3-0. 

December 7: The fifth-ranked Clarkson University women's hockey team scored three goals in two minutes and 19 seconds early in the second period to take control of the game, and St. Lawrence University was unable to mount a comeback as the Golden Knights defeated the Saints 4-0 in an ECAC Hockey contest at Appleton Arena on Friday afternoon. Kassidy Sauve made 21 saves to record the shutout for the Golden Knights. Between the second and third periods, former St. Lawrence women's hockey coach Paul Flanagan '80 P'13 was recognized as part of the Legends of Appleton ceremonies taking place this weekend. "There was a lot of energy in the building with everyone back for Legends weekend and unfortunately we couldn't set the siren to create a little more," said St. Lawrence head coach Chris Wells '92. "Sauve made some big saves and we hit three pipes. It would have been nice to see where the game would have gone if we had scored the one midway through the second on the power play. Our team battled all night to score. Fortunately we have another opportunity to play tomorrow." Elizabeth Giguere got the Golden Knights rolling, backhanding a pass across the crease from Kelly Mariani into the net three and a half minutes into the second period for the first goal of the game. Cassidy Vinkle increased the lead to two just 19 seconds later, with Michaela Pejzlova feeding Vinkle from the right side on an odd-man rush. Kristy Pidgeon scored exactly two minutes later, lifting a shot from a tough angle over St. Lawrence goaltender Grace Harrison's shoulder into the top shelf. Tia Stoddard added an empty-net goal with eight minutes to play for the Golden Knights. St. Lawrence was scoreless on five power play opportunities, but had several great scoring chances on the power play, including shots off the post by Lydia Grauer and Rachael Smith. The Saints held the Golden Knights scoreless in their lone power play opportunity, improving their nation's best penalty kill to 32-for-33 on the season (97.0%). Harrison made 25 saves for the Saints. Clarkson, which improved to 13-4-0, 4-3-0 in ECAC Hockey, held a 29-21 edge in shots on goal. St. Lawrence fell to 9-9-1, 4-3-0.

November 16: The second ranked Plattsburgh State Cardinals (4-0, 3-0 NEWHL) defeated the SUNY Potsdam women's hockey team (3-3-1, 2-2-1 NEWHL) 5-0 on Friday night. Bears junior goalie Alexa Pfeiffer (Sylvania, Ohio/Little Caesar's) made 31 saves.   Plattsburgh controlled the play in the first period, outshooting Potsdam 17-4. Sophomore forward Annie Katonka (Pittsburgh, Pa./Pittsburgh Pens Elite) tipped a shot from the point past Pfeiffer to open the scoring at 9:34. Nearly seven minutes later, sophomore forward Kaitlin Drew-Mead (Niagara Falls, N.Y./Buffalo Bisons) scored a similar goal to make it 2-0. The teams headed into the intermission with the score unchanged.   Thanks in part to three power plays in the second period, Potsdam fired 15 shots on Cardinals senior goalie Kassi Abbott (Medford, Mass./Boston Shamrocks Elite). However, the goaltender stopped each one and Plattsburgh added another goal. At 7:59, freshman forward Sara Krauseneck (Saginaw, Mich./Northern Cyclones) finished a two-on-one with a wrist shot that made it 3-0.   The third period saw plenty of penalties and back-and-forth play, but two Plattsburgh goals in a 1:24 span put the game away. Sophomore forward Abby Brush (Mount Prospect, Ill./Chicago Young Americans) poked home a shot in the slot to make it 4-0 at 12:11. At 13:35, freshman defenseman Hanna Rose (Chaumont, N.Y./Northwood School) scored a power-play goal on a high shot from the left point to close the scoring at 5-0.   Abbott made 27 saves and still hasn't allowed a goal this season. Plattsburgh outshot Potsdam 36-27 and was 1-for-4 on the man advantage. The Bears were 0-for-7.   The two teams go at it again tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in Plattsburgh.

November 2: The SUNY Potsdam women's hockey team (2-1) downed the Buffalo State Bengals (1-1-1) 6-1 on Friday night in the team's NEWHL opener. Potsdam took control of the contest early with great passing and their disruptive defense. Sophomore forward Natalie Wasielewski (Carnegie, Pa./Pittsburgh Penguins Elite) recorded a hat trick. Junior defenseman Delphine Léonard (Anjou, Quebec/Dawson College Prep) had a goal and an assist and sophomore forward Alexis Clark (Niagara Falls, N.Y./Buffalo Bisons) and junior forward Miranda Kolb (Watertown, N.Y./SUNY Cortland) netted the other two goals for the Bears.   After the period opened evenly, Potsdam jumped out in front on a shorthanded goal from Wasielewski at 7:53. Sophomore goalie of the Bengals Bri Gawronski (Dunkirk, N.Y./Buffalo Bisons) couldn't react to the speed of the Bears offense in transition and Wasielewski capitalized with a high shot. At the 14:00 mark, the Bears took advantage of their second power play of the night and extended their lead to 2-0. After the faceoff, the Bears' passing kept the Bengals on their heels. Gawronski made a diving stop on one shot, but Kolb stayed with the play and scored while the goalie was down. Junior forward Lucy Condon (Waterloo, Ontario/Waterloo Ravens) assisted on the goal. The score was unchanged at the first intermission.   Buffalo State cut the lead with its own shorthanded goal just 17 seconds into the second period. After a turnover by Potsdam in the offensive zone, senior forward Emma Ruggiero (Amherst, N.Y./Buffalo Regals) picked up a pass from junior forward Lila Toczek (North Tonawanda, N.Y./Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles) and went the length of the ice uncontested. Potsdam answered shortly after with two goals. First, Clark went through two defenders and loaded up her shot as she went around a third before depositing the puck just under the crossbar. The second goal came after Wasielewski intercepted a pass from Buffalo, split through the defense and buried her second goal of the night from the left circle. Despite being outshot 9-6 in the middle 20 minutes, the Bears had increased their lead to 4-1.   Léonard pushed the lead to 5-1 at 11:08 of the third after a she took a pass from sophomore forward Allie Banas (Buffalo, N.Y./Buffalo Bisons) and weaved all the way down the ice before scoring from the right side. Wasielewski scored her third goal of the night after Condon gained control of the puck and dished it to her. She finished the play with a bullet from the right circle. The goal gave the Bears a 6-1 lead and closed out the win.   Junior goalie Alexa Pfeiffer (Sylvania, Ohio/Little Caesar's) stopped 24 shots for the 15th victory of her career. She is now tied for second place on the program's wins list. Gawronski made 19 saves for the visitors.

November 16:  The No. 2 Plattsburgh State women's ice hockey team posted its fourth consecutive shutout to start the 2018-19 season, as the Cardinals cruised to a 5-0 Northeast Women's Hockey League (NEWHL) win over SUNY Potsdam on Friday evening at the Maxcy Ice Arena.   Plattsburgh State is ranked at No. 2 in both the USCHO.com Women's Division III Top-10 Poll and the D3hockey.com Women's Top-10 Poll.   The Cardinals finished with a 36-27 edge in shots on goal in addition to going 1-for-4 on the power play. The Bears were scoreless in seven chances with the extra skater.   Plattsburgh State rises to 4-0-0 overall (3-0-0 NEWHL) with the win, while Potsdam drops to 3-3-1 overall (2-2-1 NEWHL) with the loss. The two teams will wrap up the weekend series tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. at the Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena in Plattsburgh, N.Y.   Sophomore forward Annie Katonka (Pittsburgh, Pa./Pittsburgh Pens Elite) put the Cardinals on the board 9:34 into the first period, tipping a shot that junior defenseman Hannah Kiraly (Glendale, Ariz./Northern Cyclones) took from the point past the Bear goaltender. Sophomore defenseman Emma Killeen (Watertown, Conn./The Gunnery) also earned an assist on the play.   With 16:30 gone in the first, sophomore forward Kaitlin Drew-Mead (Niagara Falls, N.Y./Buffalo Bisons) made it a 2-0 game. Senior forward Mackenzie Millen (Anchorage, Alaska/North American Hockey Academy) took control of a loose puck along the end boards and skated behind the back of the goal from left to right before wrapping the puck around the right post. Potsdam's junior goaltender Alexa Pfeiffer made a pad save, but Drew-Mead poked in the rebound.   Freshman forward Sara Krauseneck (Saginaw, Mich./Northern Cyclones) scored her first collegiate goal with 7:59 elapsed in the second period. Killeen sent a stretch pass forward to Kiraly, and Kiraly centered a pass into the slot to Krauseneck from the right face-off circle. Krauseneck then one-timed a shot past the Bear goalie blocker side to give the Cardinals a 3-0 advantage.   Plattsburgh State took a 4-0 lead with 12:11 gone in the third, as sophomore forward Abby Brush (Mount Prospect, Ill./Chicago Young Americans) backhanded a shot five-hole right outside the crease thanks to a feed from Katonka that came from behind the goal line.   Finally, 1:24 later, the Cardinals scored on the power play to round out scoring in the contest. Millen passed D-to-D to freshman defenseman Sierra Benjamin (Palm Coast, Fla./Northwood School), and Benjamin found freshman defenseman Hanna Rose (Chaumont, N.Y./Northwood School) undefended in the high slot just inside the blue line. Rose ripped a slap shot past the traffic in the slot that wound up sailing over the goalie's shoulder blocker side and into the back of the net.   Senior goaltender Kassi Abbott (Medford, Mass./Boston Shamrocks Elite), who is tied for the NCAA Division III lead in save percentage (1.000), goals-against average (0.00), winning percentage (1.000) and shutouts (4), made 27 saves in the shutout victory. With the shutout, Abbott now has 13 for her career, which moves her into a tie for sixth in the program's career record book with Bree Doyle (2004-07). Potsdam's Pfeiffer turned aside 31 shots in the loss.
