Box Score

HANOVER, N.H. (3/1/13) - The Princeton men's hockey team was less than four minutes away from a win when Dartmouth's Jesse Beamish spoiled the victory and scored the game-tying goal to force overtime. The game finished in an exciting, no-holds-barred 2-2 tie.

With a 7-10-3 ECAC record, Princeton remains in a tie for ninth place, along with Brown. The Tigers are 9-14-4 overall.

Beamish scored at 16:23 on a wrap around after Eric Neiley tried to pop the puck in on netminder Mike Condon on the left side. Condon was down on his stomach and tried to get over to cover the left side but Neiley beat him to it.

Dartmouth's Mike Keenan scored the game's first goal at 15:08. Brett Patterson got the puck at the extended red and sent it up the ice to Keenan at the left point. Keenan fired the puck through traffic and into the back of the net.

It was a short-lived lead as senior Will MacDonald scored 2:06 later to knot the game at 1-1. MacDonald scored right off a faceoff with freshman Michael Zajac drawing the puck back to MacDonald who ripped a shot from the high slot.

Junior Andrew Ammon gave Princeton the lead midway though the second period. Freshman Kyle Rankin found Ammon between the circles and Ammon rifled a high shot over the outstretched glove of netminder Charles Grant.

The Big Green tried to end the game in regulation when Taylor Boldt got a breakaway, but he was denied by Condon on a toe save with 40 seconds left in the third.

Dartmouth's best chance of the extra period was a shot by Tyler Sikura but Condon made the stop with two minutes left. Grant was challenged on the other end, as Princeton had a 4-2 edge in shots in overtime. Matt Farris ripped a shot from the  left point that Grant took in the chest and hung onto with 1:11 remaining. He made his biggest and best stop of the game with 31.8 seconds left with a glove save on a blast from senior Michael Sdao from the point.

Condon finished the game with 30 saves and Grant made 40, as Princeton outshot Dartmouth 42-32.

Dartmouth will have home ice in the playoffs as it improves to 13-10-4 overall and 9-8-3 in the league to sit in a three-way tie for third place.

Princeton travels to Harvard for a 7 p.m., game tomorrow night. Harvard defeated No. 1 Quinnipiac 3-2 in overtime tonight.
