Rensselaer Swept on North Country Trip, Overwhelmed in Satellite Hockey Game
The Rensselaer Mens' Hockey Team suffered through its fifth and sixth straight losses this weekend on the infamous North Country trip. On Friday night, St. Lawrence scored three unanswered goals in the third period to defeat RPI 4-2. Ben Barr scored both goals for Rensselaer, while Kevin Kurk had 29 saves.
In the annual Satellite Hockey game on Saturday night, Clarkson destroyed Rensselaer 7-1. The Golden Knights scored seven consecutive goals in the first two periods of the game. Chris Hussey scored for RPI on the power play with a little over 3 minutes remaining in the game.
Nathan Marsters had a game he would probably like to forget: 12 saves / 5 goals in 24 and one half minutes. Kevin Kurk relieved Marsters and largely stopped the bleeding.
RPI returns home for a weekend series against Harvard and Brown, beginning on Friday. Saturday night is the Big Red Freakout.
