BU 4, Merrimack 2: With Charlie Coyle and Corey Trivino gone, the Terriers have some serious Ewing Theory potential to borrow a Bill Simmons term. BU got four goals from four different Terriers, and Adam Clendening had an assist in his first game back from World Juniors. Josh Myers had his first goal of the year for Merrimack.
Miami 2, Michigan State 1: Connor Knapp stopped 33 of Michigan State’s 34 shots and the RedHawks got a goal from Bryon Paulazzo and the OT winner was supplied by Jimmy Mullin. The win vaulted Miami over Michigan State in the CCHA standings.
Alabama-Huntsville 3, Denver 2: Denver is struggling with some injuries right now but a loss to UAH is still a bad one, though it’s not Denver’s fault: The Pioneers outshot Huntsville 43-20 but Clarke Saunders was on top of things, making 41 saves. Mac Roy had the game winner with under 3 minutes to go in the game.
Cornell 3, Colorado College 1: Andy Iles stopped 39 of Colorado College’s 40 shots (and probably would have come in handy at World Juniors but that’s a topic for another day) as Cornell beat a Jaden Schwartz-less Tiger squad. John McCarron had the game winner, and his first of the season.
