Quinnipiac Men's Ice Hockey Falls To St. Lawrence, 1-0 In Overtime
The Quinnipiac men's ice hockey team lost to St. Lawrence, 1-0 in overtime, in an ECAC Hockey match-up at High Point Solutions Arena at the TD Bank Sports Center. The loss drops Quinnipiac to 7-4-2 overall and 1-2-2 in ECAC Hockey play while St. Lawrence wins its third straight to improve to 3-5-0 overall and 3-1-0 in league action.
"It was frustrating, I think we had 33 shots and didn't score," head coach Rand Pecknold said. "Just one of those games – like last night – when the puck just wouldn't go in for us."
St. Lawrence's Kyle Flanagan scored the game-winner just 2:02 into overtime for his sixth goal of the year. Gunnar Hughes put a shot on goal that was stopped by Eric Hartzell (White Bear Lake, Minn.) but Flanagan was able to pick it up behind the goal. His wrap-around was reviewed by the officials, but ultimately ruled a goal.
Quinnipiac's Hartzell took the hard-luck loss after blanking the Saints through regulation to the tune of 20 saves on 20 shots. St. Lawrence's Matt Weninger picked up the shut-out victory for St. Lawrence after denying Quinnipiac on 33 shots-on-goal. Quinnipiac outshot St. Lawrence, 33-23, in the game.
