No. 14 Penn State Routed By No. 9 Michigan 6-1

Penn State fell short it its attempt to redeem itself after Friday night’s matchup against Michigan in the second game of the series. No. 9 Michigan again had its way with the Nittany Lions as it toppled No. 14 Penn State 6-1 on Senior Night in the final game of the regular season.

How It Happened

Michigan started off strong at puck drop and dominated puck control on offense. By the first media timeout the Wolverines already led Penn State 4-1 in shots on goal. With 13:33 left in the first period, Kyle Connor scored Michigan’s first of the game, making it 1-0. Penn State responded with an Eric Scheid goal with 10:54 left in the period. While it seemed like momentum was turning around for the Nittany Lions, they couldn’t find the back of the net. Michigan tallied another one with 3:31 left in the period, raising the score 2-1. The Wolverines found the back of the net one last time before the close of the period at 1:12. At the end of the first, Penn State trailed 3-1.

Penn State goalie Eamon McAdam came out electric in the second period saving within the first three minutes. McAdam couldn’t hang on for much longer as Michigan’s Connor capitalized on a power play resulting from Kenny Brooks being sent to the box for hooking. With 13:42 left in the period, Michigan extended the lead 4-1. Shortly after, Matthew Skoff relieved McAdam in net after notching 23 saves. Penn State found itself with its first power play 5:39 left in the second but were unable to capitalize on their man-up situation. Michigan closed out the second period leading 6-1.

Michigan came out strong again for the final period with a goal sending the Wolverines ahead 6-1. With 11:51 left to play, Michigan senior Steve Racine was pulled from the net to give junior Zach Nagelvoort ice time. Skoff and the defense held off the Wolverines to end the game 6-1.

What’s Next?

Penn State holds the No. 3 seed in next week’s Big Ten Tournament in St. Paul, Minnesota. They will face off against No. 6 seeded Wisconsin on Tuesday, March 17. The time is to be announced by the Big Ten Conference later this weekend.
