Pittsburgh, PA – After seeing their 10 game undefeated streak end on Friday, Jan. 4, the Huskies look to get back on track in the consolation game of the Three Rivers Classic College Hockey Tournament on Saturday. Despite besting Union College in nearly all statistical categories on Friday, the Huskies lost 7-2 in a tough night for SCSU goaltending, particularly starter David Hrenak who allowed six goals on 19 shots. Kevin Fitzgerald had a big night for the Huskies scoring both goals and increasing his season total to nine.
Although coach Larson was disappointed he did see some positives in the Huskies effort. “I felt the first period was fairly even and even though we were down 4-1 after two periods we competed hard and we told our players that. We felt we had some momentum in the third period and if we could close it to 2 goals we would have been back in the game.”
The Huskies will face a Robert Morris squad that had an early 2-0 lead over Brown but things fell apart on them ultimately losing 7-4. Brown rallied for four straight goals in the second period and added three more in the third to advance to the tournament finale vs Union College. It’s been a tough year for the 8-10-1 Colonials currently sitting in 49th in the Pairwise.
Saturday’s contest will change venues with the games moving to the PPG Paints Arena, the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Game time is at 4:05 PM CT and can be viewed on RMU TV HERE.
