Game of the Week: St. Lawrence @ Brown

ECAC Conference play, and all the conferences for that matter, really heat up this weekend. St. Lawrence University visited Providence, Rhode Island to play Brown University on a Frigid Friday the 13th. night. The injury riddled Saints are missing three players; star defenseman Gavin Bayreuther, Jacob Pritchard, and Mike Marnell are all out, so St. Lawrence coach Mark Morris has had to make key adustments to his lineup.

Early in the first period, SLU had to serve a few penalties and the Brown Bears powerplay was impressive with several excellent scoring chances including a few posts, but could not beat the Saints PK unit and Goalie Kyle Hayton. The Saints then had a few powerplays of their own, but didn't mount much offense; they clearly miss Bayreuther on the blueline on the powerplay. Both teams had several good chances 5 on 5 the rest of the first period, but neither team could find the back of the net.

It took 15 minutes of play in the second period for the first goal of the game. Brown's fourth line broke the ice with a nice attack on the SLU net; Senior Zack Pryzbek scored a diving goal from the crease to give the Bears a one goal lead. There was a lot of end to end play for the entire 20 minutes, but both other than the Pryzbek goal, both teams lacked the abilty to finish some nice offensive chances.

In the third, it was all Brown for the first six minutes until St. Lawrence forward Ryan Lough scored a laser snapshot from 20 feet out. That was just what Saint Lawrence needed; they added a powerplay goal three minutes later and the momentum shifted to the boys from Canton, NY. Brown began to apply more pressure, but solid defensive play from Saints Freshman Ben Finkelstein helped eliminate two strong Brown scoring chances late in the period. Brown called a time out with 2:12 remaining in the game and pulled the netminder with the faceoff in the Saints zone. Saint Lawrence played solid 5 on 6 play though and just missed the empty net on two tries. Brown missed a great chance of their own with 2 seconds left but SLU prevailed notching the 2-1 ECAC win.

Game Two of the Week: Vermont @ Providence - 1/14/2017

The Vermont Catamounts visited the Providence College Friars beautifully renovated Schneider Arena this weekend. On Friday night, Vermont beat Providence 4-3 in a typically hotly contested Hockey East battle. The Friars were looking for revenge on Saturday. The game time was moved up so all the locals could be home in time for the New England Patriots playoff game.

After a scoreless first period, the Friars started strong with a second period powerplay. Providence failed to score with the extra man but mounted a furious attack for the first five minutes of period two. But a PC high sticking penalty led to the first score of the game, Vermont's Mario Puskarich firing a rising shot from the top of the circle just as the power play ended. A series of penalities followed including an abbreviated 5 on 3 on which the Cats failed to capitalize.

What followed was Hockey East hockey at it's best; seven minutes of high octane end to end offense for both teams capped off by a beautiful goal by Josh Wilkens, A Carolina Jr. Hurricane in his younger years, assisted by Team USA World Junior Gold medalist Erik Foley. Things devolved a bit towards the end of the second as both teams once again traded penalties.

Penalties proved to be costly for the Cats, as Vermont started the third period shorthanded, then played 4 on 4 as both teams were whistled for matching minors. The open ice inherent in 4 on 4 play opened up an opportunity for PC. They took advantage scoring the go-ahead goal on a mad scramble in front of the net; the result was a puck knocked in off a UVM stick. The Friars then fed off the energy from the second goal and widened the margin with a pretty wrister by Vimal Sukumaran. With 7:26 left in the game, the Friars were in the box. The Vermont power play began with a mistake at the blueline resulting in a dangerous shorthanded 2 on 1 bid by Providence, that went just wide. The Cats powerplay never got organized and PC kept applying offensive pressure.

With 2:11 left in the game, Vermont Coach Kevin Sneddon called a timeout, pulled the goaltender and sketched out a play. Vermont had a few scoring chances, but PC effectively shut down the shooting lanes and PC's Brian Pinho scrambled out of the zone, picked up a loose puck and sealed the win with an empty net goal. The rink emptied out quickly after that goal as the Providence fans headed home to watch their beloved Patriots. Just another sports filled weeked in New England!
