Penn State Hockey Falls to Vermont 5-2

A change of scenery might’ve been what Penn State needed, but it wasn’t enough to pull the Nittany Lions out of its recent slump. Penn State dropped to 1-3-1 on the year after falling 5-2 to Vermont at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia this weekend.

Penn State got on the board first when center Taylor Holstrom slapped home a rebound to make the score 1-0. Just two minutes later, captain Tommy Olczyk found a loose puck in front of the net and buried it past Vermont goaltender Mike Santaguida (31 saves, .939 save %) to give Penn State the 2-0 lead with seven minutes left in the first. However, Vermont’s Jake Fallon was able to beat goalie Eamon McAdam (24 saves, .828 save %) with five minutes left in the first and Penn State went into the first intermission with a 2-1 lead.

The Nittany Lions were unable to score in the second period, but Vermont notched two more with goals from Nick Luukko and Matt White to make the score 3-2 going into the third.

The third period didn’t go much better for the Nittany Lions, as both Brendan Bradley and Pete Massar scored to give Vermont a 5-2 lead. The Nittany Lions put 23 shots on Santaguide in the third, but were ultimately unable to crack the Vermont goaltender. The loss marks the fourth straight winless game for Penn State.

The Nittany Lions ended the game with 33 shots and took six penalties in the loss.

Penn State will look to get back in the win column when the team faces Robert Morris in Pittsburgh this Friday.
