RPI Splits Games on Dreaded North Country Trip

Here are the details on the men's hockey teams' interesting trip to the North Country this weekend. On Friday night, USCHO.com reported that RPI took advantage of a controversial 5-on-3 powerplay in overtime to beat Clarkson 4-3. Ben Barr got the winning goal during a scramble with 1:30 remaining in overtime. Nathan Marsters made 22 saves, including stopping a penalty shot, for the victory.

According to the Times Union, this was RPI's first victory at Clarkson or St. Lawrence since the 1999-2000 season. Also, the Engineers had been held to one goal or less in its last three games at Cheel Arena in Potsdam.

On Saturday night, St. Lawrence goaltender Mike McKenna emphatically shut out the Engineers by a score of 4-0. This win broke a nine-game losing streak for the Larries.

RPI now has a 3-3-1 overall record, and has a 1-1 record in ECAC play.
