Colgate 4, Clarkson 3


POTSDAM — Colgate ended the Clarkson University men's hockey team's early run of success in close games in a stunning fashion Saturday night.
The Raiders scored two goals just 29 seconds apart late in the third period to knock off Clarkson 4-3 before 2,950 in an ECAC Hockey contest at Cheel Arena.
Clarkson (10-3-1 overall, 4-2 conference) had been 7-0-1 in one-goal games prior to Saturday's contest and the Golden Knights were clinging to a 3-2 lead when Colgate's Joe Wilson was given a five-minute major for charging after colliding with Clarkson goalie Greg Lewis with just 7 minutes, 29 seconds left in the game.
But just 65 seconds into the major Clarkson's Kevin Tansey was called for tripping, putting the teams to a four-on-four situation.
Colgate (6-6-1, 4-2) took advantage as Kyle Braun tied the game with 5:30 left and then 29 seconds later Darcy Murphy scored an unassisted goal for the game-winner.

Murphy's goal came on a shot that went over Lewis's blocker, stunning the Cheel Arena crowd.

Clarkson also was surprised by how the game evolved. Until Saturday the Golden Knights had been able to produce victories in similar situations, though for the third time in four games the Golden Knights blew a two-goal lead.

After a dominant defensive effort Friday in a 3-2 win over Cornell, Clarkson was tested by Colgate's speed and offensive skill Saturday.
The Raiders controlled play early in the game and finally took a 1-0 lead when Brendan Corcoran scored at 11:21.
But Clarkson worked its way back late in the period and tied the game with 22 seconds left on a goal by sophomore defenseman Paul Geiger.
Geiger's goal appeared to change the momentum as Clarkson game out more aggressive in the second period and took a 2-1 lead on a goal from DiNallo just 2:24 into the period.
The lead extended to 3-1 when Burton scored at 13:04.

But Colgate began to regain control of the game in the third period and wound up outshooting the Golden Knights 6-2.
The Raiders cut Clarkson's lead to 3-2 just 2:42 into the period on a goal from Emilio Audi.
