Men’s Hockey Rebounds for First D-1 Victory

For the second time in less than 24 hours, the Penn State Men’s Hockey team found itself in overtime against American International College (1-1). This time, they would not let Friday night’s last second loss repeat itself as freshman David Glen scored 38 seconds into overtime to give the Nittany Lions (1-1) a 4-3 victory at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Unlike Friday’s season opener where the Nittany Lions were often playing from behind and never led, they struck first Saturday night as Glen scored late in the first period to give Guy Gadowsky’s squad a 1-0 lead. AIC would even things up with a Chris Porter powerplay goal early in the second period before defenseman Mark Yanis put the Nittany Lions back in front at the 16:26 mark of the second stanza.

Jonathan Milley added a powerplay goal with an assist from Max Gardiner to extend the lead to 3-1, but AIC was not going down without a fight. Goals from Nathan Sliwinski and Adam Pleskach tied the score, and things would stay that way through the end of the third period until Glen’s game winner with assists from Kenny Brooks and Curtis Loik.

The shot differential was not as substantial as Friday’s game, but the Nittany Lions were able to solve goaltender Ben Meisner 4 times on 44 shots while goaltender PJ Musico played a strong game between the pipes in his first start, saving 32 of the 35 shots he faced.

The efforts of Glen and Musico earned them the first and second star of the game respectively while Sliwinski earned the third star.

After two games as a Division-1 member, the Nittany Lions have a victory under their belt. They will play at Buffalo State this Friday, followed by four additional road games before returning home on Saturday, November 3rd.
