RPI Splits with UMass-Lowell and Number 4 UNH
The Rensselaer Men's Hockey Team continued its string of strong performances this weekend in road games against two Hockey East opponents. On Friday night, Kevin Croxton and Kirk MacDonald both scored in the second period to lead RPI to a 2-1 victory over UMass-Lowell. Junior Andrew Martin played strongly in his first start as an Engineer, making 24 saves.
On Saturday, RPI travelled up to Durham, NH, to play the fourth-ranked University of New Hampshire. Scott Romfo, Nick Economakos, and Conrad Barnes scored to give the Engineers a 3-2 lead at the end of two periods. But, UNH came back with two goals early in the third period to put the game away.
Nathan Marsters had 23 saves in the loss from Rensselaer.
RPI is now 7-4-2 overall, 2-1-1 in the ECAC. They face Yale and Princeton at Houston Field House next weekend.
