SLU 3, Clarkson 1 — Game draws 781, a little disappointing given last year’s crowd but not surprising considering the time of year. For the second week in a row, Clarkson fails to answer the bell and gives up a goal in the opening seconds. SLU dominated this game, but given the way Clarkson reboundedÃ‚Â in game two againstÃ‚Â Mercyhurst last weekend, the Saints shouldn’t take anything for granted on Saturday. The SLU videocast was a welcome addition.
UNH 2, Brown 0 — Not too many surprises here in Brown’s opener. Maybe I expected UNH to score a little more, but Brown has had strong goaltending in recent years, whether it be Nicole Stock or O’Hara Shipe (just ask Princeton from the ECACHL semifinals).Ã‚Â On the offensive end last year, Hayley Moore and Keaton Zucker were Brown’s only consistent scorers, and now Zucker’s gone, so this team has plenty of questions on the offensive end. For UNH, still only two goals combined this season from Sadie Wright-Ward and Jennifer Hitchcock after they combined for 58 a year ago — not quite sure how to explain that.
Thanks to Richter547 on the message board for posting the link to the Clarkson videocast for Saturday’s game against SLU. Between that, the Minnesota-Wisconsin USCHO Game of the Week, and Dartmouth-Mercyhurst thereÃ‚Â will be plenty of action to follow tomorrow afternoon.
