PRINCETON, N.J. (2/16/13) - A late rally by the Princeton men's hockey team fell short as St. Lawrence takes a 3-2 game at Hobey Baker Rink on Saturday, Feb. 16.

The Tigers scored twice in the final five minutes of the game but couldn't get the equalizer.

The loss drops Princeton to eighth in the league standings, along with Clarkson, with a 7-8-3 record for 17 points with two weekends remaining. Eight points separates the middle 10 teams in the league.

St. Lawrence scored three straight power-play goals to take a 3-0 lead. Greg Carey scored unassisted during a five-minute power play after freshman Mike Ambrosia was assessed a major for checking from behind a game misconduct. Justin Baker converted on the Saints' next power-play opportunity at 18:19 of the first with help from Kyle Flanagan and Jeremy Wick.

Wick scored himself at 16:39 of the second with George Hughes and Flanagan assisting as St. Lawrence scored a Michael Sdao tripping call.

Princeton on the other hand couldn't get its power play going as it went 0 for 8.

The Tigers rally began in the final five minutes when junior captain Jack Berger took the game into his own hands. Freshman Jonathan Liau got the puck after a bad breakout pass by St. Lawrence. Liau fed Berger who fired over the left shoulder of Weninger with a shot from the left hash marks at 15:37.

After Princeton gained possession of the puck down low, goalie Sean Bonar made his way to the bench with 2:15 remaining for the extra attacker. The Tigers had two shots wide and one on frame that Weninger held on to for a face off. Will MacDonald won the face off and sophomore Aaron Kesselman scored the extra attacker goal with 48 seconds on the clock. Liau brought the puck into the zone and Berger helped get the puck around the back of the goal and fed Kesselman in the slot for the goal.

Princeton didn't have enough time left to get the game-tying goal as the buzzer sounded.

Bonar made 28 saves in goal and Weninger made 35 as Princeton outshot Clarkson 37-31. St. Lawrence was 3 for 6 on the power play and improve to 15-11-4 overall and 8-6-4 in the league.

Princeton looks to get back in the hunt for a top four seed when it hosts Brown and Yale next weekend, Feb. 22 & 23, the final home games of the regular season.
