Sophomore wing Greg Carey scored
on a power-play one-timer 2:25 into overtime to lift St. Lawrence University to
a 4-3 ECAC Hockey victory over Yale in New Haven Friday night, snapping a
six-game Saint winless streak and giving SLU its first league win since November 19.
Carey, who had two goals in the
3-3 tie with Yale in Canton in January, did it again Friday and now has six
goals and nine points in seven games against the Elis. His overtime winner, his
first game winner of the season, gave the Saints two points out of a game in
which they worked hard to build a lead only to see Yale come back to tie it in
"Getting the win is huge," said
Saint associate head coach Mike Hurlbut. "We played our best game in quite some
time and coming away with less than two points would have been disappointing. This
is one we can build on and get a roll going at the right time of the year.
Carey scored the game winner
after Yale's Antoine Laganiere was called for a board at 2:09 of the overtime.
Kyle Flanagan won the faceoff in the Yale zone, the puck went back to George
Hughes at the point and Hughes relayed it back to Flanagan, who hit Carey at
the bottom of the faceoff circle and Carey's one-timer whistled past Yale
goalie Nic Maricic to end it.
SLU improves to 9-15-3 overall
and 5-9-1 in league play and snapped a bunch of streaks with the win, including
a 0-7-1 mark in league play since their 4-3 win over Harvard in November. Yale
is now 9-11-2, 6-8-1 in league play
