Men’s Hockey Breaks Wins Record In 6-1 Domination Of Ohio State

While THON was doing its thing across the street at the BJC, the No. 15 men’s hockey team did its thing, breaking multiple program records in a 6-1 rout of Ohio State. The win puts the team at 19-8-4 for the season, setting the team record for season wins, with five games left in the regular season. The win breaks the previous record of 18 wins set by the team last year after finishing 18-15-4. This is the third time the team has broken the record in its four years as a Division I program.

How It Happened

Penn State got the scoring started early on with a David Glen goal just more than six minutes into the first period. The goal came with an assist by junior David Goodwin, giving him the school record for career points. The rest of the first period was neck-and-neck, with both teams getting into double-digits for shots, but neither team scored again.

The second period, however, was anything but close, starting just under five minutes into the period with a Penn State goal from Vince Pedrie. Later in the period, the Nittany Lions pulled away, scoring three goals in less than five minutes, coming from Goodwin, Luke Juha, and Alec Marsh. The rapid-fire scoring gave Penn State a 5-0 lead going into the third period, despite only taking three more shots than Ohio State.

The Buckeyes grabbed a goal in the third, but it proved futile, as it would be the only they got. In an attempt at a comeback, Ohio State pulled its goalie while on a two-man advantage, and Penn State’s Zach Saar took advantage of the open net, scoring almost immediately after coming out of the penalty box, and making it 6-1, the score by which the game would end.

Player Of The Game

While David Goodwin certainly deserves credit for racking up multiple points and breaking arguably the program’s most important record, the player of the game was goaltender Eamon McAdam. McAdam allowed just one goal on 34 shots for a phenomenal save percentage of .971. While the end of the game was certainly easier with a wide lead, McAdam did a fantastic job enabling the offense by making sure the team didn’t slip behind and lose momentum. He had some absolutely amazing saves, especially while the game was still close, and without them, you might have been reading a very different story.

The Nittany Lions return to Pegula to complete the series with Ohio State tomorrow at 3 p.m. for the last time this season. The game will also be the last home game ever for this year’s senior class, and Senior Day celebrations will take place before the game. So if you need a break from THON, think about taking a quick walk across University Drive to support the seniors.
