Third Period notes:

Saints get the power play with 7 minutes to play.

Carey heads to the box.
Yale continues to hammer on Weninger. Now up 35-15 in shots. They've also hit two posts.
Second period impressions:
Saints have nothing in the tank anymore. Yale has worn them down and I feel a lot of the penalties have been frustration or fatigue penalties. Hopefully it doesn't get too ugly in the third period.
You can't really fault Weninger for the four goals allowed. He's played decently and has, after all, stopped 29 shots. The Saints haven't had any zone time and Yale has simply dominated.
Second period notes:
Drewiske goes after Kearney. No penalty or DQ as the period ends.
SLU kills another penalty in the period. Yale has had four power plays.
Saints kill the penalty and still trail 4-0.

A little slower pace to start the second period. Saints are trying to play more controlled.
Saints kill the Flanagan penalty.
First period impressions:
A pretty wild first period saw nine penalties between the two teams. Yale's two goals were both on power plays.
St. Lawrence looks a little sloppy tonight, at least in the first period. The power play particularly looks rushed. The Saints need to limit their mistakes and protect the puck. There has only been a handful of good scoring chances for SLU, while Yale has had several, two of which it converted.
The Saints need to stay out of the box tonight and so far that hasn't happened.
First Period notes:
Saints will have a 5-on-3 now for 1:18
Saints get a 5-on-3
Things getting a little chippy and there's still a lot of hockey to played. Clearly the Saints don't want to go down without a fight, but they're struggling to keep control of the puck.
Saints get a quick power play but fail to score on it. The power play still looks out of sync and Yale's kill looked good.
