The Knights, who lost the series opener 2-1 on Friday, will battle Cornell on Sunday in the best-of-three-game series deciding contest, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Sunday's winner will move on the ECAC Hockey Championship Tournament in Lake Placid next weekend. Audio Head Coach casey Jones postgame Clarkson, which improves to 21-16-4 overall, jumped out a 3-0 lead over Cornell (16-9-5) and held off a late push by the Big Red to snap a seven-game losing skid at Lynah Rink, winning for the first time in Ithaca since January 2008. Cornell outshot the Green and Gold 24-15, but Perry was strong in the Clarkson crease, including 10 third-period stops, and the Knights' specialty teams were sharp. Clarkson went 2-of-5 On the power play and killed off all five of Cornell's man-advantage chances. Audio Perry save Sophomore Jeff DiNallo (Aurora, ONT) opened the game for Clarkson, connecting on the power play seven minutes in for his 11th goal of the season off a great feed from senior Allan McPherson (Kinburn, ONT). Ben Sexton (Kanata, ONT), the Knights' leading playmaker, also assisted. Audio DiNallo goal The Knights built their lead to 3-0 with a pair of goals 1:34 apart early in the middle frame. Sophomore Christian Powers (Carlisle, ONT) kept the Knights' momentum rolling to start the second period when he scored his first career goal tipping in a shot by sophomore defenseman Paul Geiger (Stouffville, ONT) over the glove of Big Red goaltender Andy Iles at 5:52. McPherson also assisted. At 7:33, sophomore defenseman James de Haas (Mississauga, ONT) continued his recent scoring burst with a power-play tally off assists from DiNallo and Sexton, his 22nd helper of the year. For de Haas that was his sixth goal of the season and third in the past three games. Audio Powers goal Audio de Haas's goal Cornell got on the scoreboard at 11:09 of the second when Patrick McCarron took advantage of a Clarkson turnover in its own end and stuffed a shot past Perry to bring the Lynah crowd to life. The Big Red had an excellent opportunity to add another goal with a power play shortly after McCarron's score. The Knights' man-down unit came up strong, however, killing of the man-advantage to keep Cornell from getting on a roll. The home team pressured in the third, limiting the Knights to just three shots, but Clarkson was able to hold off the Big Red and then iced the game with senior Jarrett Burton's (Echo Bay, ONT) empty-net tally with 7.4 seconds left on the clock.

Mar. 15: Colgate University rallied from a 2-1 deficit with three straight goals and then held off St. Lawrence to win game two of a best of three ECAC quarterfinal series, completing the sweep and ending the Saint season 4-3 on Saturday night.  The Saints played a strong first period to take the lead and had some great chances to pad their lead, but Colgate kept it close and then scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the third period to build a 4-2 lead. The second of two goals by Saint senior Greg Carey cut the Raider lead to 4-3 with 3:16 to play, but the Saints were called for too many men when trying to pull goaltender Matt Weninger for an extra attacker and couldn't get the equalizer.   Freshman Woody Hudson opened the scoring for the Saints with his sixth of the year as he banged home a rebound of a shot by Brian Ward which was stopped by Colgate goalie Charlie Finn with the game just 1:40 old. Drew Smolcynski also assisted on the play for the Saints. It didn't take Colgate long to tie it, however, as Darcy Murphy scored his 16th of the year when the Saints turned the puck over behind their own net just 42 seconds later.   SLU regained the lead when Carey scored his 17th of the year on a one-time blast off a pass from Gavin Bayreuther on the power play at 15:13 with Jeremy Wick also assisting.   The Saints were called for a spate of penalties in the second period and Murphy tied the game on the power play on a sharp angle shot at 8:43. SLU had two shorthanded breakaways late in the period, but Wick banged one off the post and Patrick Doherty was stopped by Finn.   While the Saints started the third period on the power play, they couldn't convert and Colgate took the lead at the five minute mark when Joe Wilson tipped a shot from defenseman Ryan Johnston past Weninger. It went to 4-2 on a power play when Wilson got his second tip in of the period off an initial shot by Murphy at 9:25.   Carey put back a rebound of a shot by Wick with Matt Carey also assisting at 16:44 to cut the lead to 4-3, but Colgate was able to hang on and end the Saint season.   Carey's two goals give him 84 for his career and the points give him a career total of 185. He finishes fourth on the all-time Saint goal scoring list and third, just three points off the all-time record in points.   Weninger, who holds nearly all of the Saint goaltending records had 20 saves in Saturday's game while Finn finished with 23 for Colgate.

Mar. 14: Goalie Matt Weninger gave St. Lawrence University's men's hockey team a chance to win in Friday's ECAC Quarterfinal opener at Colgate, but the Raiders converted their first two power play chances and held off the Saints for a 2-1 win in the best-of-three series.   The Saints and Raiders are no strangers in ECAC quarterfinal and post-season series, and typically the games played at Starr Rink, 13 of the 17 total, have been close affairs. Ten of the 13 games have been decided by a single goal including each of the last three quarterfinal games between the two teams at Starr Rink.   Colgate got the kind of start it was looking for, converting on its first two power play opportunities in the game to take a 2-0 lead just 5:09 into the game. Tyson Spink took a pass from his twin brother Tyler as things opened up in the Saint end after a defender fell down just 18 seconds into the first power play chance. Tyson scored his ninth of the year as Matt Weninger couldn't get back across the face of the goal fast enough to stop the point blank shot at 2:29. The brothers Spink figured in the second power play goal as well, setting up trailer Kevin Lough for the goal at 5:09 and the 2-0 lead.   Neither team scored in the second period with the Saints holding a slight 10-7 edge in shots on goal. While they outshot the Raiders, Colgate limited SLU to one shot at a time and continued its solid defense into the third period.   Greg Carey finally got something going for the Saints when he made a perfect pass from the left faceoff circle to defenseman Justin Baker, who had moved to the side of the net. Baker tapped the pass home for his ninth of the year with Jeremy Wick also assisting at 16:20 to make it a 2-1 game, but the Saints could not find the equalizer.   SLU pulled Weninger for an extra attacker with 1:17 to play, but Colgate's defense was up to the task and did not give the Saints any good looks at offensive opportunities and held the Saints without a shot on net despite the extra man on the ice.   Weninger finished with 28 saves for the Saints while Charlie Finn made 23 for the Raiders.



St Lawrence University celebrated their first goal of the playoffs against Brown when Kyle Essery lit the lamp in the second period. Greg Carey also scored for the Saints late in the second period.

SUNY POTSDAM MEN ROAR BACK with four unanswred for win

Potsdam’s Ken Simon (14) pulls away on a breakaway. Simon scored a goal in the Bears’ 4-4 overtime tie.

Feb 14: Down and never out, the SUNY Potsdam men's hockey team continued to find a way to pick up much needed points in their fight for a late playoff push on Friday night with a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over SUNY Morrisville at Maxcy Ice Arena. It certainly did not come easy, but the Bears have begun to show a penchant for scoring late tide-turning goals in dramatic fashion. Just a week after fighting back to tie Buffalo State 1-1 and six days removed from rallying back with two late goals to earn a 4-4 tie with SUNY Fredonia, Potsdam pulled out more flair in the closing minutes.  At 6:44 into the second period, the Bears (8-12-2 overall, 3-8-2 SUNYAC) dug themselves into a 3-0 deficit and were still trying to solve Mustangs' senior goaltender Christopher Azzano.  Then, sophomore forward Jake Rivera (Pacific Palisades, Calif. / Hartford Wolfpack) broke through for his second goal of the season on a breakaway that was fed from Zach Blake (Campbellford, Ontario / Plattsburgh State) and Ryan Miller (Didsbury, Alberta / Arizona State Sun Devils) with 7:27 left.     The heroes grew in numbers from there for the Bears in a three-goal third period.  First, it was Brad Campagna (Monroe, N.Y. / New York Bobcats) who maneuvered his way down the near side and scored from just inside the circle at 3:08. Then, it was Trevor Cope (Swartz Creek, Mich. / Atlanta Jr. Knights) who knotted the score at three off a rebound in front of the net flung by captain Mike Arnold (Didsbury, Alberta / Kingston Voyagers). With time winding down and a potential overtime period looming for a third consecutive game, Vinny Caligiuri (Shoreham, N.Y. / Hartford Wolfpack) ensured that the extra period would not be necessary as the freshman forward pounced on a rebound shot from Arnold and scored the winner with 2:53 remaining.  "It was gut-wrenching for everybody," said fifth-year Potsdam coach Chris Bernard.  "It's a devastating situation for them.  They played very well and then had it swept away. And, for us, it was gut wrenching to see our season slipping away and then to find a way to get back." The Mustangs (5-16-2 overall, 2-12-1 SUNYAC) took a three-goal advantage after it rung up goals by Zach Baker, John Doyle and Darren Young.  "Credit them," coach Bernard said. "They played hard from the start.  We didn't execute our game plan very well. And, I think that was a little bit us and a little bit was what they were doing against us.  Eventually, as the game wore on, we found a way to execute our game plan a lot better." After Morrisville held a 13-12 shots on goal advantage in the second period, the energy shifted back to Potsdam's side as the Bears were able to hold a 10-6 shots on goal advantage in the last stanza.  "I think it's a concentration and focus of getting pucks and bodies to the net," coach Bernard said.   "When that happens, you just generate so many opportunities and it becomes harder to play defense.  When it hits off that goalie and everybody has to react to it.  In that chaos, it creates a high volume of opportunities for us.  When you get a puck on the net and you get a loose puck rebound, that can build some of your confidence.  This game is all about momentum and that was demonstrated in a game like tonight."  Potsdam finished with a 33-24 shots on goal edge.  Bears sophomore goaltender Jon Hall (Dexter, N.Y. / Stouffville Spirit) made 21 saves to improve to 2-3-2 on the season.  However, Hall has come on strong in recent games going 2-0-2 in his last four.  All of which contributed to six critical conference points. "I'm just really proud of the heart that our kids showed," said coach Bernard. "They had us on the mat.  There are no two ways about it.  But, we were able to keep our shoulders from being pinned.  It showed a lot of guts and character."  Potsdam will be back in action once again versus SUNY Morrisville on Saturday night from Maxcy Ice Arena.  Puck drops at 7 p.m.  

Feb. 8: The SUNY Potsdam men's hockey team (7-12-2, 2-8-2 SUNYAC) saw a two-goal lead evaporate in the third period, but battled back to forge a 4-4 tie with Fredonia State (7-10-5, 4-5-4) on Saturday night. Sophomore forward Billy Pascalli (Deer Park, N.Y./New York Bobcats) had a goal and three assists to lead the Bears and senior forward Adam Place (Scarborough, Ontario/Bowmanville Eagles) finished with a three-point night (1g, 2a). All of Potsdam's goals came on the power play. The Blue Devils outshot Potsdam early in the contest, assisted by a Bears' too-many-men penalty just 3:20 into the contest. Potsdam killed the power play and with strong goaltending from sophomore goalie Jon Hall (Dexter, N.Y./Stouffville Spirit) shifted the momentum in the other direction. The Bears made the most of their first power play of the contest. At 11:10, Pascalli sent a pass in front of the net and junior defenseman Dan McCamey (Dayton, Ohio/Minnesota Flying Aces) roofed a shot over Fredonia freshman goalie Jeff Flagler (Owen Sound, Ontario/Walkerton Juniors) for a 1-0 lead. The rest of the period was evenly matched and Potsdam took the lead and a 15-13 advantage in shots into the first break. Each team had three power plays in the second period that both halted and ignited momentum. There were 35 total shots in the middle 20 minutes and the goaltenders combined to stop 34. It was junior forward Ken Simon (Norwell, Mass./Philadelphia Revolution) that got the period's lone goal on the power play. Simon fired a shot from the slot that Flagler got a piece of, but couldn't hang on too. Pascalli and Place assisted on the goal. Hall made 16 saves to keep the score 2-0 in favor of Potsdam after two periods. The offense was the story in the third period. The Blue Devils exploded for three goals in the first 5:38 to grab a 3-2 advantage. Freshman forward Travis Fernley (Calgary, Alberta/Truro Bearcats) beat Hall with a shot from the right faceoff circle 2:06 into the period. Sophomore defenseman Mitch Kaufmann (Red Deer, Alberta/Canmore) tied the score with a goal from a crowd in front at 5:21. Just 17 seconds later, senior forward Matt Owczarczak (Buffalo, N.Y./Buffalo Jr. Sabres) finished a perfect passing play, firing the puck past a diving Hall to give Fredonia its first lead of the contest. Nearly seven minutes later, sophomore forward Chad Bennett (Burlington, Ontario/Aurora Tigers) made it 4-2 Blue Devils. Rather than be blown out of their own building, the Bears answered with another power play goal three minutes later. Place blasted a shot through traffic to cut the gap to 4-3 on helpers from Simon and Pascalli. The momentum continued to build for the Bears as they went on their sixth power play with 1:56 remaining. With a minute on the clock Hall was pulled for an extra attacker. Just three seconds later, Pascalli tipped a blast from the point off the stick of junior defenseman Erick Ware (Huntsville, Ala./Kenai River Brown Bears) past Flagler to tie the game at 4-4. Place earned the second assist on the play. In overtime, each team had a power play off of a goaltender interference call, but neither could get the decisive tally. Fredonia outshot the Bears 5-4 in the extra five minutes. Hall finished with 46 saves and Flagler stopped 47. The Bears outshot the Blue Devils 51-50 on the night. Potsdam went 4-7 on the power play, while giving up nothing on seven penalty kills. The Bears are just two points out of the sixth and final playoff spot with four SUNYAC games to play.

Mar. 1: After suffering a loss to Oswego State last weekend, the Plattsburgh State men's hockey team came into Saturday's game looking for revenge but the Lakers had different plans, handing the Cardinals a 2-1 loss in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Semifinals Saturday night at the Stafford Ice Arena.   Much like their meeting last weekend, the two teams were scoreless after the first period of play. A back-and forth opening frame left the Cardinals with a 9-7 advantage in shots on goal at the first intermission.   A power-play opportunity early in the second allowed Plattsburgh State (19-5-2) to strike first. Alex Jensen took a centering pass from Kevin Emmerling and fired a shot to the left of Oswego State goaltender Matt Zawadzki to give the Cardinals a 1-0 lead with 2:49 gone in the second. Dillan Fox also picked up an assist on Jensen's team-leading 13th goal of the season.   The Cardinals took the one-goal lead into the third period but Oswego State (19-6-2) came firing back with a power-play goal at the 6:24 mark to even the score at 1-1. David Titantic grabbed a puck that bounced off the back boards and attempted to score on a wrap-around but the puck sailed through the left circle where Mike Montagna punched a shot past Mathieu Cadieux for the equalizer.   The Lakers knocked the wind out of the Cardinals' sail at the 10:15 mark of the third period when Josh Timpano caught Cadieux by surprise with a backhanded shot that snuck between Cadieux's left skate and the post to give Oswego State a 2-1 lead. Andrew Barton was credited with the assist on the eventual game-winner and Timpano's first career goal.   Plattsburgh State had a number of chances through the final nine minutes of play but the Cardinals were unable to find a way to score. The Cardinals' best chance to tie it up came with just over a minute left when a scrum in front of the net left Zawadzki on his back and without a stick. Despite a number of Plattsburgh State players poking at the puck, it just wasn't to be as the Lakers were eventually able to carry the puck out of their own end.   The Cardinals finished the night with a 32-25 advantage in shots on goal. Plattsburgh State went 1-for-3 on the power play while Oswego State was 1-for-5.   Cadieux made 23 saves in the loss, bringing his record to 18-5-2 on the year. Zawadzki stopped 31 of the 32 shots he faced in the Lakers' win.   Saturday's collapse was one of historic proportions for Plattsburgh State. The Cardinals, who were making their 27th appearance in the SUNYAC Tournament, have never not made the SUNYAC Finals. The loss snaps Plattsburgh State's streak of appearing in 22 straight SUNYAC Championship games.   In the other SUNYAC Semifinal game, No. 1 seed Geneseo shutout No. 4 seed Buffalo State, 2-0. The Ice Knights will host Oswego State next Saturday with the conference crown on the line.   With their early exit from the conference tournament, the Cardinals may now find themselves on the outside looking in for the NCAA Tournament as their season rests in the hands of the NCAA Selection Committee. The field for the NCAA Division III Tournament will be announced on Sunday, March 9th in a live selection show on NCAA.com at 10 p.m. eastern time.

Feb 22: The regular season ended on a sour note as the nationally-ranked No. 4 Plattsburgh State men's hockey team suffered a 4-3 loss to No. 12 Oswego State in a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) matchup Saturday night at the Stafford Ice Arena.   Saturday's wild matchup added another chapter to the well-documented rivalry between the Cardinals and the Lakers. An evenly-matched first period left both sides scoreless and Plattsburgh State with a slim 8-7 advantage in shots on goal after the first 20 minutes of play.   Plattsburgh State grabbed the momentum just 26 seconds into the second period with Michael Radisa giving the Cardinals a 1-0 lead. Shortly after a Plattsburgh State power play had expired, Radisa brought a loose puck around the back of the net and poked the puck past the left skate of Oswego State goaltender Justin Gilbert to put the Cardinals on the board.   The game-changing moment of the night came with 2:10 gone in the second when Plattsburgh State's Ryan Farnan and Oswego State's Alex Botten collided at center ice. The play resulted in a five-minute major and a game misconduct on Farnan, giving the Lakers an opportunity to even the score.   Oswego State scored the equalizer on the power play at the 4:45 mark after a cross-ice pass from Stephen Johnson found Mike Montagna in the left circle. Montagna's one-timer from a sharp angle found its way through the legs of Mathieu Cadieux to make it a 1-1 game.   The Lakers continued to take advantage of the long power play when Andrew Barton deflected Bobby Gertsakis' shot from just inside the blue line to give Oswego State a 2-1 lead.   The Cardinals came firing back at the 8:27 mark of the second period on Radisa's second of the night from Michael Cassidy. Radisa took a feed from Cassidy, made a move around an Oswego State defenseman and tuck a shot under the crossbar to tie it at 2-2.   Plattsburgh State regained the lead 53 seconds later when Alex Brenton ripped a shot from the left point that sailed past Gilbert to put the Cardinals up 3-2. Brenton's 12th of the year signaled the end of Gilbert's night as the Lakers made the switch for freshman netminder Matt Zawadski.   The change in goal may have been the spark the Lakers were looking for as the see-saw battle shifted in favor of Oswego State when Botten beat Cadieux with a shot from the top of the right circle to knot the score at 3-3 at the 12:57 mark of the second.   Despite outshooting the Lakers 13-6 in the third period, the Cardinals were unable to solve Zadwadski as the game remained tied at 3-3 until late in the third. With 2:20 left in regulation, Oswego State's Brandon Adams worked his way around a Cardinal defender and punched a shot through the five-hole of Cadieux to hand the Lakers a 4-3 lead.   Plattsburgh State pulled Cadieux with 1:06 left in the game, but the Cardinals failed to get the goal they need to force overtime.   Cadieux made 16 saves in the loss for the Cardinals. Zawadski was credited with the win for the Lakers, stopping all 22 shots he faced. Gilbert finished with 11 saves for Oswego State.   With the loss, the Cardinals close out the regular season with a 19-4-2 record overall and a 12-2-2 mark in the SUNYAC. The Lakers improve to 17-6-2 on the year and 10-5-1 in conference play.   Prior to Saturday's game, the Cardinals honored WIRY's Ducky Drake, the voice of Cardinal Hockey for the past 40 years. Plattsburgh State relived some of Drake's famous calls with a pregame video. The Cardinals also wore special jerseys for warm-ups with Drake's name and the number 40 to celebrate his time with the program. Drake was presented with a framed jersey and was on-hand for a ceremonial puck drop before returning to the press box to broadcast his final regular season game.   Plattsburgh State also recognized seniors Barry Roytman, Nick Jensen, Ryan Farnan, Sam Foley and Mathieu Cadieux in a brief pregame ceremony. Over the last four years, the Cardinals have posted a winning percentage of 75 percent, won two SUNYAC titles and made two appearances in the NCAA Tournament.   Geneseo defeated Fredonia, 6-3, to win the SUNYAC regular season crown and claim the top seed in the SUNYAC Tournament. The Cardinals enter the postseason as the No. 2 seed and receive a first-round bye with the Ice Knights. Oswego State and Buffalo State will host SUNYAC Quarterfinal games on Wednesday night as the No. 3 and 4 seeds, respectively. Brockport claimed the fifth seed by skating to a 3-2 win over Fredonia while the Blue Devils still make the postseason as the No. 6 seed despite the loss. Fredonia will travel to Oswego State while Brockport makes the trip to Buffalo State for the SUNYAC Quarterfinals.

Feb 14: The SUNY Canton men's hockey team scored two first period goals on its way to a 2-2 overtime tie against visiting Franklin Pierce University on Friday evening at the Roos House. SUNY Canton celebrated Zach Hamilton and Senior Night.   The Roos (5-14-3) got on the board first as Joe Casale (Niagara Falls, NY) fed the puck to Jordan Grimsley (Palmetto, FL) just outside the left faceoff circle. Grimsley laced a wrister over the stick of Kyle Moran for his first goal of the season to make it 1-0 at the 6:43 mark.   With time winding down in the first period senior captain Cory Giczewski (Fountain Valley, CA) skated behind the net and around the right side finding a cutting Nick Vasilopoulos (Montreal, QUE) on the left side. Vasilopoulos beat Moran for the two-goal lead after 20 minutes of play.   The Ravens (4-15-3) trimmed the deficit to one 2:07 into the second period when Bryan Colella fed Matt Batis who lifted a shot over the right shoulder of Morgan Barr (Almonte, ON) to make it 2-1. Franklin Pierce committed three straight penalties giving the Roos an extended 5-on-3 opportunity but SUNY Canton was unable to find the back of the net on the power play opportunity.

Feb. 8: The SUNY Canton men's hockey team scored four times in a span of 1:35 and got an unbelievable effort from Louie Puig (Chicago, IL) between the pipes to defeat host Assumption College, 4-1, Saturday evening.   Puig stopped a career-high 52 shots while letting in just one shot to give the Roos (5-14-2) a huge performance in goal. After a scoreless first period in which Puig turned aside 15 Assumption shots it was SUNY Canton who got the scoring started 9:38 into the second period when Saylor Preston (Winnipeg, MB) lit the lamp on the power play off passes from Joe Casale (Niagara Falls, NY) and Taylor Pickering (Marine City, MI). Preston struck again just 14 seconds later off the set-up from Austin Root (Manhattan Beach, CA) and in the blink of an eye SUNY Canton led 2-0.   Louie Puig had an unbelievable night stopping 52 of the 53 shots he faced. The Roos continued to put the pressure on the Greyhounds as Sam McLaughlin (Ottawa, ON) netted his second marker of the season just 21 seconds after Preston's second score of the night to blow the game open to 3-0. Casale and Vance Bridgman (North Pole, AK) assisted the McLaughlin tally. One minute later the Roos were on the attack again as Cory Giczewski (Fountain Valley, CA) beat the opposing goaltender for his team-leading ninth time this season. J.R. Lafferty (Williamstown, NJ) earned his team-best 11th assist of the season.   After a remarkable sequence of four scores in 1:35 of clock time and Puig blanking the Assumption attack to the tune of 22 saves in the second period the Roos took a 4-0 lead into second intermission.   Alex Erban scored his sixth of the season 10:37 into the third frame, but Puig made another 15 saves in the final 20 minutes to preserve the 4-1 win. The Roos went 1-for-5 with the extra skater, while the SUNY Canton penalty kill unit was 5-for-5.   The men's hockey team returns home to the Roos House on Friday for a 7:00 p.m. puck drop against Franklin Pierce University. The Roos will celebrate Zach Hamilton Night on Friday.

Clarkson’s Shannon MacAulay (24) attempts a move around a Boston College defender in Saturday’s NCAA quarterfinal.

Mar. 23: Sophomore Shannon MacAulay's (Mt. Herbert, PEI) breakaway goal with under five minutes to play proved to be the game winner as the 2nd-ranked Clarkson University Women's Hockey team defeated the top-ranked Minnesota University Golden Gophers 5-4 in the 2014 Women's Frozen Four National Championship game on Sunday afternoon at High Point Solutions Arena on the campus of Quinnipiac University. The win is the first NCAA National Championship for any sport in Clarkson history. Video Game Highlights Clarkson postgame press conference The Golden Knights wrap up their most successful season in program history by earning their 31st win, going 31-5-5 and outlasting the Gophers in an incredible national title game. Minnesota falls just short of a third straight national championship, going 38-2-1 on the year. Clarkson becomes the first team to win the championship not from the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, dating back to 2001. Radio Audio of final moments of Clarkson's First Ever NCAA Championship photo by Ting-Li Wang After entering the third period tied at 3-3, the Knights would outscore the Gophers 2-1 over the final 20 minutes. The second line for the Knights got two shots on goal early in the third period as sophomore Olivia Howe (Moose Jaw, SASK) put a wrister on net and then senior captain Carly Mercer (Exeter, ONT) fired a slap shot from the blue line that was turned away by Minnesota netminder Amanda Leveille. An interference call against the Gophers put the Knights on just their second power-play of the game with just over 12 minutes remaining in regulation. Both Mercer sisters put shots on net early in the man-advantage, but Leveille gloved each attempt. Styner would bring the puck in from the blue line and pass through the defense to Rattray, but she broke her stick when attempting a slap shot and the puck sailed wide of the net. Minnesota would kill the penalty and return to even strength with 10 minutes to play. Clarkson would take the 4-3 lead when Rattray fought off a defender and brought the puck across the blue line into the Minnesota zone with 7:30 to play. Tapping to open ice along the line to senior Vanessa Gagnon (St. Constant, QUE), the assistant captain would bring the puck into the far circle before leaving it for classmate Vanessa Plante (Riviere-du-Loup, QUE). The defender, who entered the game with two goals on the season, fired a slap shot over the glove of Leveille to give the Knights the lead. Audio of Plante's goal MacAulay would score the game winner at the 4:16 mark. Minnesota attempted to set up in the Clarkson zone, but MacAulay poked the puck away from the Gophers at the blue line and had an uncontested breakaway from center ice. Leveille came out to play the puck but MacAulay was able to hold it long enough and beat the goaltender with a wrist shot through the five-hole to extend the Clarkson lead to 5-3 with 4:16 remaining in the game. Audio MacAulay's goal "I tipped it off the girls stick and I had a lot of time to think about it but I was prepared for it," said MacAulay. "We've all been preparing for this game for weeks now so I didn't freak myself out. I just tried to stick with it and I knew I had the team behind me 100% and without them behind me and pumping me up on the bench I wouldn't have been able to capitalize on that." photo by David Hahn The Gophers would answer at the 3:41 mark as Baylee Gillanders took the puck at the blue line following a scrum along the boards and fired a slap shot through traffic by senior goaltender Erica Howe (Ottawa, ONT) to cut the Clarkson lead to 5-4. Multiple icing calls against the Knights kept the puck in the Clarkson zone for much of the final two minutes. Minnesota would call a timeout with 1:04 remaining in the game and pull Leveille, but the extra skater was neutralized by the Clarkson defense as they were able to carry the puck into the Minnesota zone and pin it against the boards behind the Gophers' net at the clock expired. "Just thrilled beyond belief," said co-head coach Matt Desrosiers. "The girls believed in themselves all year, even coming into tonight I had a feeling about the way they were going to come out and play. They weren't going to back down and they proved that tonight. I thought they stuck with it very well tonight and I'm just thrilled and speechless right now." Howe made some fantastic saves against the top scoring offense in the country. She ended the afternoon with 34 stops. "I can't say enough about Erica Howe," said Carly Mercer. "She's an incredible goaltender. She is an incredible competitor. I think often times she's overlooked unfortunately but at the end of the day our entire team knows that she is going to bring her best and play her best and that's what she did tonight. We're confident in her – she's never given us a reason not to be, and I wasn't surprised that she played in another incredible game tonight." "She's just a good person. She's relaxed in the net and keeps things calm for us back there. She doesn't give up a lot of second or third opportunities," added Desrosiers. Minnesota would get on the board first at the 9:40 mark as the Gophers won a faceoff in the Clarkson zone following an icing call. Rachael Bona won the faceoff and left the puck for Sarah Davis, who skated toward the middle of the ice and flipped a shot over the glove of Howe to give Minnesota the 1-0 lead. Clarkson nearly responded as sophomore Cayley Mercer (Exeter, ONT) gained control of the puck behind the Minnesota net and attempted a centering pass that deflected off a Gopher defender and into the crease before Leveille covered the puck. A boarding penalty would put Minnesota on the power-play with just over six minutes remaining, but the Knights used their top penalty kill in the country to deny the Gophers. With 1:30 to play in the period sophomore defender Renata Fast (Burlington, ONT) took the puck end-to-end and centered a pass to senior Shelby Nisbet (Wiseton, SASK), but Nisbet could not get a clean stick on the puck and Leveille covered to force a faceoff. On the ensuing faceoff the Knights would answer as MacAulay brought the puck through the crease and failed to get a clean look on net. As everyone crashed the net, junior Christine Lambert (Thetford Mines, QUE) was able to get a stick on the puck and poke it by Leveille to tie the game at 1-1. The goal was Lambert's ninth on the year. Audio Lambert's goal Clarkson would immediately take the lead as Minnesota committed a hooking penalty but Clarkson retained possession. Pulling Howe on the delayed penalty, the puck eventually worked out of the right corner of the ice and over to junior Jennifer Shields (Ingersoll, ONT) at the far blue line. Shields fired a slap shot on goal that was redirected by Nisbet in front of the net to give Clarkson the 2-1 lead with 20 seconds remaining in the first period. The score was Nisbet's ninth on the year. Audio Nisbet's goal Howe made a number of impressive saves in the first period for a total of 11, while Leveille stopped eight shots. Minnesota attempted 25 shots in the period, but nine of them were blocked before they could reach the net by the Clarkson defense. Minnesota had only trailed after the first period four times this season. Clarkson would capitalize on the 1:40 remaining on the hooking penalty that carried over from the first period senior Brittany Styner controlled the puck in the Minnesota zone and found MacAulay in front of the goal. MacAulay tapped the puck across the crease as she spun and found 2014 Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award winner senior Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata, ONT), who finished with a wrist shot by Leveille to double the Clarkson lead to 3-1. Rattray added to her team-high in goals with her 29th on the year. Audio Rattray's goal An interference penalty against Clarkson led to another Gopher power-play, and this time Minnesota would cash in and cut the Clarkson lead in half. Maryanna Menefee received a pass from Dani Cameranesi on the backside of the net and beat Howe for Minnesota's second goal on the afternoon. NCAA points-leader Hannah Brandt also assisted on the power-play goal. Minnesota tied the game minutes later as Bona put a shot through the five-hole of Howe to tie the game at 3-3. Davis and Meghan Wolfe were credited with assists on the play. The goal was initially waved off but after being reviewed it was deemed a score. The Gophers would go on another power-play with under five minutes to play in the second period, but Howe made two impressive saves, one with her stick and the other her body, to keep the game tied at 3-3. Clarkson would remain on the defensive when a hooking call with just under two minutes remaining forced them into another penalty killing situation. Killing off all but 16 seconds on the penalty, the Knights returned to the locker room tied at 3-3 after two periods. Minnesota dominated the second period after allowing the early goal, outshooting Clarkson 14-5. Clarkson took three penalties in the middle 20 minutes of play, making it hard to build any momentum on the offensive end. Minnesota ended the game with a 38-28 advantage in shots but could not overcome a pair of two-goal deficits. The Clarkson penalty kill was strong as usual, allowing only one goal in five short-handed situations. Leveille ended with 23 saves. "The confidence that this team has hasn't wavered all season long, even over the last couple of days I have not seen one glimpse of them thinking they could not win this game," said Desrosiers.

Mar. 21: Three goals in the second period powered the 2nd-ranked Clarkson University Women's Hockey team by the 4th-ranked Mercyhurst University Lakers 5-1 in the 2014 Women's Frozen Four semifinals on Friday evening at Quinnipiac University's High Point Solutions Arena. The Golden Knights improve to 30-5-5 on the season, extending their most successful season in program history, as they will take on the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers on Sunday afternoon at 3:00 pm in the 2014 Women's Frozen Four National Championship game. The Gophers defeated the University of Wisconsin 5-3 earlier this afternoon to advance to the final. 2014 NC Women's Ice Hockey Semifinal: Clarkson vs. Mercyhurst - Full Video Replay NCAA postgame press conference Clarkson dominated tempo early, keeping the puck in the Mercyhurst zone for much of the first five minutes of play. Pressuring the Lakers' goaltender Amanda Makela with five shots on net in the first few minutes, the Knights were kept scoreless by multiple impressive saves. The Lakers scored first at the 8:02 mark when Jaclyn Arbour took a pass from Shelby Bram on the doorstep and beat senior goaltender Erica Howe (Ottawa, ONT) with a wrist shot from point-blank range to give Mercyhurst the first-period lead, but that would be the only blemish for Howe on the evening. Clarkson would go on the power-play shortly after but struggled to get a shot on net. The Lakers cleared the puck midway through the man-advantage and the Knights were unable to get on the scoreboard. The Lakers nearly doubled their lead with 7:30 remaining in the period when a wrap-around attempt failed but the puck lingered in the crease before Howe was able to get a glove on it and cover it up. Just under two minutes later the Lakers would lead another rush that ended in a shot off the left post that ricocheted wide of the net. Both teams would get chances throughout the remainder of the periods but the goaltenders were up to the challenge and the score remained 1-0 in favor of the Lakers after 20 minutes of play. Clarkson outshot Mercyhurst 14-9 in the period and dominated the faceoff circle, winning nine of 12 draws. Clarkson would tie the game exactly five minutes into the second period as senior Vanessa Gagnon (St. Constant, QUE) found sophomore defenseman Renata Fast (Burlington, ONT) at the blue line. Fast fired a slap shot on net over the glove of Makela to put the Knights on the board and tie the game at one goal a side. The goal was the second of the season and fourth of her career for Fast. Audio Fast goal Clarkson would strike again at the 9:16 mark when Top-3 Patty Kazmaier Award Finalist senior Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata, ONT) battled for the puck behind the Mercyhurst net. After beating a Laker defender and controlling the puck she passed it in front of the net where Gagnon finished with a wrist shot by Makela to give the Knights their first lead of the evening at 2-1. The score was Gagnon's 18th on the season. Audio Gagnon goal "We both went for it," said Gagnon. "Jamie Lee [Rattray] pretty much did all the work. She went in the corner and made sure I got the puck. I saw it at the last second and dove for it and got the goal but a lot of credit goes to Rattray who stuck with the puck in the corner there and got it off in front of the goalie. I just had to finish it. The Knights would double their lead with 3:36 remaining in the second period as Fast again fired a shot from the blue line and junior Christine Lambert (Thetford Mines, QUE) redirected the puck under the glove of Makela to give Clarkson the 3-1 lead. Senior Shelby Nisbet (Wiseton, SASK) was also credited with an assist. The goal is Lambert's eighth on the season. Audio Lambert goal The Knights would pull away from the Lakers at the 6:39 mark in the third period as Rattray led a beautiful two-on-one break with fellow senior Brittany Styner (Calgary, ALB). Rattray skated up the left side of the ice before finding Styner with a pass across the middle of the ice. Styner collected the puck and beat Makela with a top-shelf wrist shot that gave Clarkson the 4-1 lead. The goal is Styner's 14th on the year, and the assist was Rattray's second on the night and 36th on the year. Audio Styner goal "We've always talked about he depth we have on this team and it showed tonight," said co-head coach Matt Desrosiers. "Obviously Jamie Lee is a special player but you can go through our lineup and there's a lot of special players. They all have their particular roles and play them well." An interference penalty on the Knights with just over two minutes to go, coupled with Mercyhurst pulling Makela from net, left Clarkson on the wrong side of a six-on-four advantage, but the Clarkson defense held strong. The Lakers struggled to get anything going on the offensive end in either of the final two periods as Clarkson dominated play. With the net left empty and less than 30 seconds to play, Nisbet carried the puck into the Mercyhurst zone and left a pass back for sophomore Shannon MacAulay (Mt. Herbert, PEI). MacAulay found the empty net with 13 seconds to play to give Clarkson the decisive 5-1 victory. Audio MacAulay goal Howe recorded 18 saves on the evening to earn her 89th career win between the pipes. Audio Howe save Clarkson outshot Mercyhurst 35-19 on the evening.

 SUNY Plattsburgh’s Tyne Grove (11) regains control of the puck and races toward the Potsdam goal.  The Cardinals nailed the Bears 8-0 in the ECAC West Division season opener. Shannon Stewart led the Cardinals with four goals, while senior defenseman Allison Era had a hat trick and an assist.

March 22: Ali Vakos, Chelsea VanGlahn and Bridget Balisy combined for 11 points as the Plattsburgh State women's hockey team defeated the Norwich Cadets, 9-2, to earn the Cardinals' third national crown in front of a crowd of 1,619 at the Stafford Ice Arena Saturday night.   With the win, the Cardinals finish the season with a 28-1-1 record and claim their first title since 2008.   The game got off to a shaky start for Plattsburgh State as Norwich (27-4-0) jumped out to a 1-0 lead at the 8:30 mark of the first period. Madyson Moore made a move around a Cardinal defender but when Plattsburgh State's Sydney Aveson attempted to poke the puck away, it slid through the five-hole and into the net to give the Cadets the early lead.   The Cardinals quickly responded when Balisy ripped a shot from the right dot that flew high over Norwich goaltender Taylor Fairchild, tying the game at the 9:57 mark. From that point on, the Plattsburgh State offense was relentless. Freshman defender Julia Duquette got her second of the season on a shot from the left point that beat Fairchild through the five-hole with 6:47 left in the opening period to give the Cardinals a 2-1 lead.   VanGlahn got the eventual game-winning goal at t he 15:31 mark, drilling home a rebound off a shot by Tyne Gove to make it 3-1, before Balisy picked up her second of the night on a bar-down goal to hand the Cardinals a three-goal lead going into the first intermission.   Jordan Caldwell registered the lone goal of the second, scoring on a rebound off of Allison Era's shot from the point at the 8:11 mark to make it 5-1 in favor of the Cardinals.   With just 2:26 left in the third the floodgates opened as VanGlahn picked up her second of the night from Vakos. Jenny Kistner extended the lead to 6-1 at 6:58 before Caldwell found the back of the net again at 16:59 to make it a 7-1 game.   The Cadets never gave up with Haley Gibson tipping in her sixth of the year at 18:26 but the duo of Vakos and VanGlahn put the exclamation point on the win with 25 seconds left on the clock. The pair of senior linemates took off on a 2-on-1 break with VanGlahn making the pass to set up Vakos for her 13th of the season.   VanGlahn finished the night with two goals and two assists while Vakos had a goal and three assists. Balisy tallied two goals and one assist. Caldwell had a pair of goals and Kistner added a goal and an assist.   The Cardinals outshot the Cadets, 49-39. Plattsburgh State went 0-for-1 on the power play while Norwich was 0-for-5.   Aveson recorded 37 saves to finish her final season with a 22-1-1 record. The most decorated goaltender in Cardinals' history went out with a bang setting new NCAA records in single-season save percentage (.971) and career victories (69) in her final game.   Fairchild suffered the loss for the Cadets, making 13 saves. Loren Carrier finished the night with 27 stops.   Aveson, Balisy, Era and VanGlahn represented Plattsburgh State on the NCAA All-Tournament Team. Brittany Sharman from Norwich and Chloe Kinsel from Wis.-River Falls rounded out the squad.

Mar.  21: With 4:49 left in overtime, Allison Era's shot sailed through a screen and into the back of the net to lift the Plattsburgh State women's hockey team to a hard-fought 1-0 win over St. Thomas in the NCAA Semifinals Friday afternoon at the Stafford Ice Arena.   The Cardinals (27-1-1) came out firing, outshooting the Tommies (20-6-3) by a 19-5 margin through one period of play, but St. Thomas goaltender Alise Riedel answered the call every single time to keep Plattsburgh State off the board.   A First Team All-American, Riedel put on a stellar performance in Friday's game, recording 63 saves in the loss to set a new record for single-game saves at the NCAA Women's Ice Hockey Championships. One of Riedel's many standout moments came with just under 14 minutes left in the second period when Plattsburgh State's Morgan MacInnis fired a point-blank shot from deep in the slot but Riedel denied MacInnis with a huge glove save.   The scoreless battle waged on into the third period as the Cardinals could not find an answer to Riedel. Despite a 14-9 advantage in shots on goal for Plattsburgh State, both teams had solid chances to break the tie. The Cardinals hit a number of pipes in the third but couldn't get one through while Plattsburgh State's Sydney Aveson came up with a big save off her right pad with 1:15 left in the regulation to keep the game scoreless. The Tommies also had a 2-on-1 in the final minute, but St. Thomas was unable to get a shot off, ensuring extra hockey for the 885 fans in attendance.   The St. Thomas penalty kill successfully killed off four penalties in regulation before shutting down two more Plattsburgh State power-play opportunities in the overtime period. Then the Tommies had a chance to end it when Kelsey Barnier skated in alone but her shot went wide of the net and the game continued on.   St. Thomas was whistled for a tripping penalty at the 14:29 mark of overtime to give the Cardinals their seventh power play of the game. Andrea Ziesmann's pass found Era on the right point just inside the blue line. With a lot of traffic in front, Era reared back and blasted a shot into the top left corner of the net to unload the Cardinals' bench.   "That was probably the best moment of my career," reflected Era. "To have your team tackle you and to be the reason why is unexplainable."   "We're a resilient team and we've been focused since day one," said Houle. "Heading into overtime, we just wanted to get pucks on net and create some traffic in front."   "Overall, I thought it was a fantastic game and it must've been a great game to watch," added Houle.   Shots on goal favored the Cardinals, 64-30. Plattsburgh State went 1-for-7 on the power play while St. Thomas was 0-for-2 on the night.   Aveson improved to 21-1-1 on the year, turning away all 30 shots she faced to earn her 14th shutout of the season and set a new NCAA single-season shutout record.   In the second semifinal game, four different goal scorers helped Norwich skate to a 4-2 win over Wisconsin-River Falls. Cadets' goaltender Taylor Fairchild made 34 stops in the victory.   Saturday's action will begin with the third-place game at 3:30 p.m. between St. Thomas and Wisconsin-River Falls. The 2014 National Champions will be crowned later that evening as the puck drops at 7 p.m. for a highly-anticipated showdown between Plattsburgh State and Norwich.   The Cardinals will be making their fourth appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship game and first since 2008. Saturday's showdown will mark just the second time the two teams have met in the NCAA Tournament with the Cadets earning a 3-2 victory over the Cardinals in the 2010 NCAA Division III Quarterfinals. Plattsburgh State owns a 5-4-1 all-time record against Norwich.

Mar. 1: A third-period rally by the Saints wasn't enough to overcome an early two-goal deficit, as their season ended with a 2-1 loss to Quinnipiac on Saturday afternoon in Hamden, Conn. The Bobcats swept the best-of-three series to advance to the ECAC Hockey tournament at Clarkson next weekend. With a third-period power-play goal, St. Lawrence senior co-captain Mel Desrochers increased her all-time program lead in goals by a defenseman, as she departs with 27 career tallies. An aggressive third gave the Saints the final edge in shots, 26-21, but they struggled to generate chances in the early going, registering just five shots in the first period and finding themselves in a 1-0 hole heading into the first intermission. It was Kelly Babstock who gave the Bobcats the lead with a breakaway goal at the 11:42 mark of the first, as she skated in alone and deked around St. Lawrence goaltender Carmen MacDonald to tuck the puck inside the far post.  Shiann Darkangelo sprung Babstock with a two-line pass from inside the Quinnipiac defensive zone which she played off the wall away from the aggressive St. Lawrence forecheck, particularly sophomore forward Jenna Marks, who nearly intercepted the circle-to-circle pass from Emma Woods to Darkangelo that started the play. Midway through the second period, the Saints killed off a five-minute cross-checking penalty to sophomore Kailee Heidersbach. Allowing just five shots on goal and stifling any chance of sustained offensive pressure by the Bobcats, the momentum appeared to be swinging in the Saints direction. However, three minutes later with 5:15 to play in the middle frame, Darkangelo extended the Bobcats lead to 2-0 when she sent a soft snap shot into traffic to MacDonald's left. The shot hit a stick in front, changed direction and slipped past the Saints' netminder on the short side.  Initially the officials signaled no goal indicating it was kicked in, but upon review overturned the call and gave the home team a two-goal advantage. With eight minutes to play in regulation, the Saints had their best opportunity of the night when goaltender Chelsea Laden fumbled a rebound and tossed the puck out into crease as she slid across the goal mouth. Two Bobcat defenders fell to ice while sophomore Abbey McRae and senior Rylee Smith dug for the puck underneath the pile, but couldn't bury. On the power-play after Cydney Roesler was whistled for hooking and with MacDonald on the bench for an extra attacker, Desrochers cut the Bobcats lead in half with a shot from the right circle that rang off the far post and behind Laden. Smith assisted on the play, as the duo passed circle-to-circle to spread the defense and give Desrochers a shooting lane. MacDonald once again wen to the bench for the extra attacker following the ensuing faceoff and Heidersbach had two good chances was stopped by Laden and then had a shot blocked by Nicole Connery to seal the win for the Bobcats. The Saints finish the season with a 13-19-3 record overall a 12-9-3 mark against league opponents. 

Feb. 28: A pair of early goals by Quinnipiac's Shiann Darkangelo ignited the Bobcats offense, as they went on to blank St. Lawrence, 5-0, in the first game of the best-of-three quarterfinal series at TD Bank Sports Center in Hamden, Conn. Just over four minutes in, senior forward Kelly Babstock intercepted a Saints pass in the neutral zone and skated in one-on-one with sophomore defenseman Dominique Korakianitis. Babstock let go of a shot from the slot and was initially stopped by junior netminder Carmen MacDonald, but the rebound kicked out onto the stick of Darkangelo at the bottom of the circle who one-timed it home to Quinnipiac up 1-0. Darkangelo added her second of the game at the 7:26 mark, ripping a slapshot just under the crossbar from the top of the left circle off a Babstock faceoff win. Quinnipiac increased its lead to 3-0 late in the second period off a scramble in front of MacDonald. Cydney Roesler's shot from the right circle ended up tangled in the feet of a cluster of players on the far post and though freshman Brooke Webster laid out in front of the crease while MacDonald sprawled to her right, Nicole Connery was able to lift the puck into the net to send the Bobcats to the locker room with a three-goal cushion. The Saints had a number of good chances to start the third; including a blast from sophomore Jenna Marks on the power-play that rang off the post and a breakaway by senior co-captain Rylee Smith six minutes into the final frame. Smith created a turnover in the neutral zone, split the defense and skated in on Quinnipiac goaltender Chelsea Laden, but the reigning ECAC Goaltender of the Week stacked the pads to stop Smith and her team picked up the puck and skated into the Saints zone for an offensive rush of their own.  It was Connery who collected the rebound off Smith's attempt and carried along the right wall into the St. Lawrence zone. Coming across the red line towards MacDonald, Connery laid a no-look pass to Amanda Colin who was crashing through the slot. Colin got just enough of the puck to push it passed MacDonald as she fell to the ice to give the Bobcats a 4-0 lead. With just over two minutes to play in regulation, Emma Woods extended the Quinnipiac lead to 5-0 with a low wrist shot from the bottom of the right circle that squeaked between MacDonald's legs. MacDonald finished with 24 saves for the Saints, while Laden stopped 28 for the Bobcats.

Jan. 21: Maddy Hetman (Troy, NY) scored her first career goal on Tuesday evening but the women's hockey team fell to host Hamilton College, 4-2.   Hamilton (5-6-2) secured the momentum from the start finding the back of the net just 53 seconds in on their first shot of the game. Megan Fitzgerald netted her third of the year off passes from Jill Tokarczyk and Stephanie Lang. The Continentals converted on the power play at the 6:02 mark when Katie Parkman beat an opposing goaltender for the sixth time of the season. Fitzgerald and Teal Gosselin were credited with assists on the play as Hamilton led 2-0 after one.   The Roos (6-12-2) made great use of their first power play opportunity of the night taking just 11 seconds to cash in on the skater advantage. Dana Morrison (Wemindji, QUE) took a shot from the point that went wide right and caromed off the boards right to Bernadette O'Connell (Buffalo, NY) who quickly picked up the puck and lifted it over the pads of Hamilton goaltender Sarah Schuchardt.   Hetman scored her first goal as a Roo 6:08 into the 3rd period on Tuesday. The Continentals responded as they used a stroke of good fortune to break through. Parkman came out of the penalty box and it immediately turned into a 2-on-1 with her and Lang skating into the offensive zone. Parkman played a give-and-go to Lang on the left as Parkman received the one-time pass back and beat Shayna Dominique (Mistissini, QUE) over the glove to make it 3-1 Hamilton. The Continentals made it 4-1 on a late power play goal at the 18:02 mark on Gigi Fraser's team-leading eighth of the year to give the hosts a three-goal edge after two.   The Roos got within two at the 6:08 mark of the third period when Hetman scored an unassisted goal, the first of her young career, as she beat Schuchardt five-hole to make it 4-2. SUNY Canton applied pressure late but the Continentals held on for the victory.   Dominique made 36 saves on the night, while Schuchardt stopped 10 shots for Hamilton. The hosts were 2-for-5 on the power play, while SUNY Canton was 1-for-4 with the extra skater.   The women's hockey team returns to the ice Friday when they take on the University of New England at 7:00 p.m.

Feb 8: The SUNY Potsdam women's hockey team (11-7-3, 7-4-3 ECAC West) scored three power-play goals and held off Buffalo State (2-19, 2-12) 4-3 for a weekend sweep of the Bengals. Sophomore goalie Alexane Rodrigue (Monkland, Ontario/Bemidji State) stopped 28 shots to set a Bears single-season record with her ninth victory. Freshman forward Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Rochester Edge) scored two goals, including the game-winner, to tie the program's single-season mark of 17 goals set by Annmarie Lewis'12 during 2011-12. The win was also Potsdam's seventh conference victory, tying the program record set during the same season and helps the Bears keep pace with Oswego in the standings.  As in last night's opener, the Bengals got on the board first. Morgan Haettich scored an even-strength tally just 3:50 into the contest. Nikki Kirchberger and Jeyna Minnick recorded the assists. Potsdam responded with good pressure after the goal and earned their first power play at the 11:54 mark. About a minute later, Ott made Buffalo State pay with her team-leading eighth power-play goal of the season. Seniors Brittany Lucky (Kanata, Ontario/Ottawa Senators) and Jessica Silveira (Brampton, Ontario/Brampton Thunder) assisted on the goal. The Bears outshot the Bengals 14-6, but remained tied after 20 minutes. Penalties got Buffalo State in trouble again in the second period. After the teams traded unsuccessful man-advantages early, the Bengals took back-to-back penalties. At 14:34, Jenn Crawford (Burlington, Ontario/Stony Creek Sabres) gave Potsdam its first lead of the contest with helpers from Brittany Lucky and Silveira. Just 1:10 later, Buffalo State took another penalty and Brittany Lucky scored 12 seconds after that. Senior assistant captain Amanda Lucky (Kanata, Ontario/Clarkson University) notched the assist. The teams each killed another power play before intermission, but the score remained unchanged. The Bengals got back within one at 6:59 of the third period. Kara Goodwin scored on a five-on-three power play with an assist from Kendra Peters to make it 3-2. The goal sparked Buffalo State and the Bengals finally answered the Bears' pressure. At 12:23, Goodwin struck again with an even-strength goal to knot the score at 3-3. The tie lasted less than two minutes as Ott gave Potsdam a 4-3 lead at 14:13 with an assist from Crawford. Buffalo State pulled goalie Jordan Lee a couple times over the last few minutes, but the extra attacker couldn't get them the equalizer.   Lee finished with 30 saves. The Bears were 3-7 on the power play and the Bengals were 1-5. Potsdam is currently tied for third place with Oswego State, a team they are 1-0-1 against this season. The Bears are back in action next weekend when they face SUNY Canton in a home-and-home series on Feb. 15-16. Potsdam will host the Roos on Saturday at 3 p.m. and then head to Canton on Sunday for a matchup at the same time.


Feb. 7: The SUNY Potsdam women's hockey team (10-7-3, 6-4-3 ECAC West) shook off an early 1-0 deficit to down Buffalo State (2-18, 2-11) 3-2 on Saturday night. Freshman forward Amanda Peterson (West Chazy, N.Y./Chazy Flyers), senior captain Izzy Fayerman (Calgary, Alberta/The Edge) and senior forward Jessica Silveira (Brampton, Ontario/Brampton Thunder) each scored for the Bears. The win keeps Potsdam tied with Oswego State for third place in the ECAC West as they close in on a playoff berth. The victory was sophomore goalie Alexane Rodrigue's eighth of the season, tying the Bears' single-season mark set by Jen Conophy '13 in 2012. Kara Goodwin gave the Bengals their lone lead of the contest at the 9:34 mark of the first period on a helper from Alison Mish. The advantage lasted just 32 seconds before Peterson struck to tie the score. Silveira and sophomore defenseman Katie Marsman (Wantagh, N.Y./Wyoming Seminary) assisted on the goal. With just 40 seconds remaining in the opening period, Fayerman put Potsdam on top for good with assists from freshman forward Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Rochester Edge) and senior assistant captain Jenn Crawford (Burlington, Ontario/Stony Creek Sabres). The Bears owned a 9-4 advantage on shots through the first 20 minutes. The second period was more closely contested, but it was Silveira capitalizing on Potsdam's second power play of the game at the 5:01 mark. The senior finished a feed from Ott and senior captain Brittany Lucky (Kanata, Ontario/Ottawa Senators). Nikki Kirchenberger cut the gap to 3-2 with 1:02 left in the period and the Bengals were down just one by the second intermission. The Bears killed off three Buffalo State power plays in the final period, holding the Bengals to just five total shots. However, they were unable to gain any insurance.  Rodrigue slammed the door in the third period to earn the win. Buffalo State goalie Jordan Lee finished with 23 saves, while Rodrigue turned aside 16 attempts. The Bengals were 0-5 on the man advantage and the Bears went 1-5. Silveira has now scored eight goals in her last 10 games. The two teams go at it again tomorrow at 2 p.m. in Buffalo.
