Third period notes:
Weninger awesome save with 48 seconds left. Dives to make the glove stop.
Harvard is certainly making SLU earn this one. Weninger is holding strong in net. Good, solid hockey game.
Goal SLU Gunnar Hughes somehow finds a hole. No idea how that got through. What a shot.
Goal Harvard Dan Ford from the point. Weninger got screened.
Saints fail to score on the power play.
Saints go on the PP.
Carey gets a couple shots away but nothing goes. Saints still up by one.
Second period impressions:
The Saints kept up the energy even after giving up the tying goal early in the frame. Weninger is playing great again tonight in net. He has 21 saves to this point. St. Lawrence finally killed off a penalty that many in the rink though unwarranted. Hughes was simply defending his goalie and Harvard's Moriarty was clearly under the pile shoving his stick into Weninger. If anything, it should have been matching five-minute majors. Instead, Hughes was ejected, while Moriarty received only two minutes in the box.
The Saints have to stay energized and in control in the third period. If they come out flat again like what happened last night, Harvard will win this game.
St. Lawrence hasn't scored more than three goals since a 6-5 overtime loss to RIT on Oct. 15.
Second period notes:
Saints with a chance to add another goal. Petr Placek to the box.
Saints kill the penalty. Excellent PK.
The penalty kill is holding strong so far. Two minutes left in it.
Hughes gets a 5-minute major and game misconduct and Moriarty gets two minutes. Absolutely ridiculous.
Big scrum in front of SLU goal and matching penalties for George Hughes and Daniel Moriarty result. Looked like Moriarty kept poking his stick at Weninger and Hughes retaliated.
GOAL SLU Chris Martin's second. Banks it in off the far post. What a shot.
Carey stuffed from point-blank by Steve Michalek. Great chance there.
Odd man rush for the Saints is whistled dead for offsides. Questionable. Greg Carvey looks to the sky in shock.
Both teams are currently 2-for-2 on the power play.
Goal Harvard Another power play goal. This was a bad one I'm sure Weninger wants back. Went straight through the five hole.
First period impressions:
St. Lawrence played fluid and fast again to start tonight. It was a little more controlled than against Dartmouth and perhaps the Saints will continue the pace with the lead.
This game should be tied right now. Weninger batted one shot away with a blocked and then dove to his right with his stick extended to stop another shot. Awesome stuff.
The Saints look good tonight and Harvard just appears to be chasing them around.
First period notes:
Weninger, flat on his stomach, makes an incredible stick save at the final horn.
Nearing the end of the period, Greg Carey gets a penalty.
Goal SLU Great feed from Bruckel behind the net to Drewiske.
Goal SLU Chris Martin scores on the power play, putting home a rebound off a George Hughes shot.
Saints get a power play right away. Chance to tie it.
GOAL Harvard on the power play it's Patrick McNally unassisted.
Pretty even skating here, but Riley Austin picks up a penalty at the 16:04 for tripping.
Saints caught a little slow on a change, but Weninger makes a nice save in net.
It's "Support Your Troops" night here at Appleton Arena. The Saints will be wearing military themed uniforms and are auctioning them off on eBay this week. To place a bid, click here
Here are the lines for tonight. Just a couple changes for the Saints, including Kyle Flanagan as a scratch.
I spoke with him last night and he seemed fine, so I'm not sure why he is out tonight. I do know he's had a mild groin injury that he's been playing through. Perhaps that acted up. Will ask after the game tonight.
