Third period notes
Saints kill the penalty up 6-4. Should do it.
Logue gets a game misconduct.
Goal SLU Pitsikoulis scores from Bogosian.
Saints keep it in the zone for almost a full two minutes but fail to score.
Child to the box. 4-on-4 for 1:42.
Bogo tripped up and SLu will go on the PP.
Weninger will start the third in net.
Second period impressions
Phew. Take a breath folks. That was a wild period that saw six goals — three each for St. Lawrence and UVM — and a penalty shot (that was missed).
St. Lawrence was up as many as 5-2 before back-to-back scores has the Saints only up one heading into the third period.
I think Carey has played brilliantly tonight and he has two goals on about three or four shots to show for it. Both goals were impressive. Perhaps the highlight of the second period, however, was Ricky Carden's wrister over Madore's shoulder.
We'll see how St. Lawrence comes out, but that frenetic pace of the second period may take a toll. The Saints certainly want to give goalie Joe Spadaccini his first win in front of the Canton crowd.
St. Lawrence is one goal away from matching its high for the season.
Second period notes
Goal UVM Stalberg. It's now a one-goal affair.
A rare penalty shot is missed by Mobley.
Goal UVM Anders Franzon.
Here's Carey's goal.
Goal SLU Greg Carey's second.
Goal SLU Rick Carden with a great wrister. Impressive goal top shelf. This is the offense SLU wanted all year.
Goal UVM Stacey on the PP. Spadaccini was screened.
Essery picks up a penalty for interference.
Goal SLU on an uncontrolled rebound in the crease. Goal goes to Nick Pitsikoulis.
Rob Madore has started the second period in net for UVM. He's shut out St. Lawrence twice in his career.
First period impressions
While the Saints started a little slow, they certainly picked it up in the second half of the first period. Greg Carey scored a hell of a goal on a one-timer from a sharp angle.
It has been a fast-paced game so far. St. Lawrence definitely looked a little gassed toward the end and didn't score on a power play at the end of the period.
Spadaccini, for the most part, has looked good. A few times he's left a juicy one in the crease that, had a UVM player been there, would have been a goal. He has made some nice stops however in I'm sure a nervous start in front of his home town crowd.
Saints look good.
First period notes
Saints are dominating this game right now. Plenty of great chances just not finding the net.
Bogosian misses a one-on-one just high.
More nice saves from Spadaccini. No one would have stopped the breakaway goal he allowed.
Goal SLU Kyle Essery scores.
GOAL SLU Beauty one-timer on the PP for Greg Carey. K. Flanagan and Hughes with assists.
4-on-4 goal on a breakaway for UVM by Downing.
Vermont power play looks weak more than SLu's PK looks good.
Penalty again on SLU. It's Hughes to the box for slashing.
Spadaccini in his first career start in net makes a nice save.
The PK looks great for the Saints. SLU even got a good shot on UVM.
St. Lawrence penalty just 51 seconds in. Mobley for hooking.
