RPI Swept at Home by Colgate and Cornell
This weekend, Colgate and Cornell travelled to Houston Field House and handed the men's hockey team two losses. On Friday night David Cann made 28 saves to lead Colgate to a 3-0 victory. This was Cann's third career shutout. Kevin Kurk also made 28 saves for RPI.
Rensselaer reportedly dominated the action in the second period, but was unable to break through for a goal. Colgate scored all three of its goals in the third period. RPI coach Dan Fridgen said, "I thought we played really, really well too. I thought we played a solid game and the opportunities were there. You know, again it comes down to a bounce here or there, and they got one off a faceoff. And the puck went through a couple of legs on the second goal."
Saturday, RPI battled back from a 3-1 deficit after two periods, but still fell short of #4 Cornell, 3-2. Nick Economakos and Kirk MacDonald scored for the Engineers. Nathan Marsters made 21 saves in the net for Rensselaer.
Cornell coach Mike Schafer said, "It was a real good win for us without being 100 percent healthy. I thought RPI played real well, they did a good job for the game."
