Princeton Ends Home Slate With Loss To Yale

PRINCETON, N.J. – Princeton held the lead over Yale for less than three minutes, but the Bulldogs (16-7-4, 11-6-3 ECAC) responded with three straight goals to take a 3-2 lead.

A couple turnovers helped the Bulldogs, who  added three more goals – including an empty-net tally – to take a 6-2 victory over the Tigers (4-19-3, 2-16-2 ECAC).

“It’s been a learning process and today I thought that just looking back at the goals, we lost the game,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said. “We gave Yale opportunities to get to the net quicker before we got coverage reestablished, lost some battles and chalk that one up to us losing the game. Not Yale winning.

“We lost the game for sure.” Continue reading Princeton Ends Home Slate With Loss To Yale

Princeton Earns Comeback Win Over Clarkson

PRINCETON, N.J. – Princeton was pinned in its own zone in the third, with the game tied 1-1. An exhausted Joe Grabowski sent a pass up the ice, but it bounced off the boards and caromed down for an icing.

Jonathan Liau raced down to beat the call, and the icing was waved off.

“[Liau] had a step on the D so he was racing to beat out the icing,” Tucker Brockett said. “I saw he was going to beat it out, and then honestly couldn’t tell you what happened from there. The next thing I knew the puck was in front and right on my stick.”

Brockett took the shot from right outside the crease, putting Princeton ahead for good. The Tigers (4-17-2, 2-14-1 ECAC) also received a goal from Aaron Kesselman en route to the 2-1 victory over the Knights (11-14-4, 8-77-2).

“It was a great team win,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said. “Guys are banged up, a lot of ice bags. And that’s what it takes to win. Winning is difficult. If it was easy, everyone would be winning.” Continue reading Princeton Earns Comeback Win Over Clarkson

Tigers Return From Finals Break With Win Over Army

PRINCETON, N.J. – Assistant captain Mike Ambrosia stood outside Princeton’s locker room, still wearing his skates and pads. Music blasted from the locker room, celebrating the Tigers’ (3-14-1) win over Army.

He smiled as he talked about the team’s new warmup playlist, which could’ve factored in the team’s win over Army.

“I guess you could say so,” Ambrosia said. “I think [Kroshus] was in charge of that so he did a good job and it was obviously nice to get a win in the column.” Continue reading Tigers Return From Finals Break With Win Over Army

Mental Mistakes Doom Princeton In Loss To Union

PRINCETON, N.J. – After a strong first period, Princeton fell victim to another lapse of focus that doomed the Tigers in the second. Union hemmed Princeton in their own zone for nearly the entire frame, ripping off 35 shots – and scoring twice.

“We started well, we were being smart,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said. “I thought the penalty that we took on the power play was a soft mental penalty that cost us power play time.

“Then it went extremely downhill from there.”

Ryan Siiro took an interference penalty that negated the power play. Union struck twice in the second and padded their lead in the third, defeating Princeton 5-2 on Friday night.

“That was awful.” Continue reading Mental Mistakes Doom Princeton In Loss To Union
