Icers Drop Two on the Rhode

The Penn State Icers traveled to Rhode Island hoping to get two wins over a quality team. Instead, the Icers came out of the weekend series scoring just one goal and giving up nine in two lopsided defeats.

On Friday, the Icers just did not make anything happen. The 5-0 loss to Rhode Island was the first time Penn State was shut out this season. It was also the first time this season that the Icers lost on the road and in conference play. The only consolation that could be gained from this game was the fact that the Icers got to face Rhode Island on Saturday as well.

Penn State played better in game two, but still fell to a 4-1 defeat. Down 2-0 in the third period, Marek Polidor scored to cut the deficit in half. Scrambling to try to get the tying goal, the Icers pulled their goalie for an extra attacker. Rhode Island capitalized on this situation by scoring two late goals to put away the game.

With the two losses, Penn State is now 9-4 overall and 2-2 in conference play. They will most likely also fall out of the top ten in the rankings for the first time in over a decade. The Icers finish off the month of November with a home-and-home series against Towson.

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: at Towson, 8:30 p.m.
Saturday: vs. Towson, 3:30 p.m.
