Third period notes
Things are getting chippy. A couple shoving matches have broken out. Officials have not been great.
Goal Princeton Calof scores.
Princeton gives the penalty right back. Saints will have a 1-minute PP.
Vangog goes to the box for boarding.
Moss makes a nice save on a breakaway. Moss took over for Weninger to start the period.
Goal SLU Pitsikoulis off a beautiful feed from Keller.
Second Period impressions
A bit of a wild period and, who knows, the Saints might pull it off in the third. They seemed to have some fire lit and I'm sure with Marsh back, he's giving it to them in the room.
Overall, it wasn't a good period for St. Lawrence or Weninger. For one, they gave away a short handed goal and Weninger let an easy one through.
The Saints need to play more controlled. There seems to be a lot of miscommunication tonight. We'll see how the third plays.
Second period notes
Goal SLU Baker banks it off the goalie's back after Princeton gave it away.
Princeton opens it up with another goal: five-hole on Weninger.
Saints don't score on the penalty.
Penalty on Princeton for running Baker into the net.
Goal Princeton Short handed Ammon
A goal is under review. Princeton scored a short-handed one.
Saints showing some renewed energy after the goal.
Goal SLU - Jordan Dewey on a kick out for the PP score.
Penalty — a dumb one — on Andrew Ammon
Saints look a bit sluggish out of the gate, but are controlling the pace. Weninger hasn't been in great position tonight.
Saints get a quick look, but can't convert.
First period impressions
The Saints started off strong, but an ill-advised penalty led to a 5-on-3 power play for Princeton, which the Tigers converted with ease. St. Lawrence played most of the final six minutes down a man or two. Can't do that against Princeton's 21-percent power play.
The injury to child is sad news. Athletic trainer Bob Mowry rushed to the ice and mouthed "Knee?" to which Child just nodded his head. He's already missed some games this year with knee injuries.
Princeton's second goal was a "garbage" goal. The Saints gave the puck away in their own zone and Princeton took a quick shot that squirted away from Weninger, right to Taylor Fedun, who had an open left half of the net. Weninger could only look at it.
Saints did not look great at the end of the period.
First period notes
Child got pinched on the board and Eric Meland goes to the box for cross checking.
Weninger couldn't control a loose puck in front and the Tigers take a 2-0 lead.
Power play is over. Saints give up just the one goal.
GOAL - Princeton on power play it's Taylor Fedun.
Weninger makes a couple nice stops on a quick succession, but Armstrong goes to the box. And Princeton scores on the 5-on-3.
Saints get two quick shots on Princeton's PP — that 21 percent PP.
Wick laid out a guy too, right after Vangog did. Pretty intense first period. Vangog to the box for two minutes for elbowing.
Bogosian laid out a Princeton player just after a whistle - no call.
Saints fail to score on the PP.
Penalty on pricneton's Andrew Ammon - high stick
Saints fans are into this one — they clearly missed hockey.
SLU getting a lot of zone time and seem to be taking care of the puck early.
Saints have come out with a lot of speed. They look decent.
Princeton's Brodie Zuk is injured on the ice and will limp off.
Joe Marsh is here, yellow legal pad in hand. Good news.
Joe Marsh supposedly will be here once the game starts. I went down to get lines and talk with the coaches and was informed that Marsh will arrive sometime within 10 minutes of the game, apparently not expecting to do much coaching today. I'm not sure if he will even be behind the bench. He still feels pretty terrible following last week's procedure and its complications.
