Men’s Hockey Dominates No. 4 UMass Lowell 4-1

After falling 5-3 the night before, Penn State hockey made history on Saturday night, upsetting No. 4 UMass Lowell on the road with a commanding 4-1 victory.

The win improves the Nittany Lions to 6-2-2 on the year and gives the program its first win over a Top 5 opponent in school history.

Penn State came out of the gates firing and would take a 3-0 into the break. Casey Bailey registered the first score only 6:17 into the game and score yet again only two minutes later to extend the lead. Both goals were assisted by Taylor Holstrom who now leads the nation in points with 16.

With only 19 seconds remaining in the period Eric Scheid would make it 3-0 to shock the home crowd and send Penn State into the intermission in complete control.

The quick scoring didn’t stop then either. Just 47 seconds into the second period, Tommy Olczyk gave Penn State a 4-0 lead on Holstrom’s third assist of the game.

UMass Lowell would get a goal back on the power play through Zack Kamrass with 9:30 remaining in the third period, but it wouldn’t be enough to stave off a post-game celebration by the Nittany Lions on the UMass Lowell ice.

Sophomore goaltender Eamon McAdam who played in his first game since Feb. 7, 2014 against then-No. 10 Michigan, made 24 saves to earn his first collegiate victory.

Prior to Saturday night’s win No. 10 Michigan was the highest ranked opponent the Nittany Lions had defeated, knocking off the Wolverines three times in 2013.


The Penn State Nittany Lions head to Ann Arbor for their conference-opening series at Michigan beginning Friday night at 7:30 p.m. That game will air on Fox Sports Detroit Plus. Saturday’s game is set for a 7:35 p.m. puck drop on Comcast Network 900 with a simulcast on BTN2Go for Big Ten Network subscribers.
