Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (1/11/13) - A three-goal first period led No. 16-ranked Union to a 3-2 win over the Princeton men's hockey team on Friday, Jan. 11 at Hobey Baker Rink before another standing-room only crowd.

Union's offense coupled with the number of penalties Princeton picked up hindered the Tigers from getting back in the game.

The Tigers quickly jumped out with a lead thanks to a goal by junior Will MacDonald 25 seconds into the game. Junior Jack Berger collected a blocked Union shot and and slipped it up ice to MacDonald who shot over the blocker of netminder Troy Grosenick.

Princeton took four straight penalties, with Union capitalizing on a 5x3 opportunity. Kyle Bodie scored with help form Wayne Simpson and Mat Bodie to even the game at 9:29.The Tigers did a nice job handing the second-best power-play unit in the country, as Union would score just once on seven chances in the game.

Max Novack gave the Dutchmen the lead on a second-chance opportunity off a wrister from Daniel Carr at 12:24. Six minutes later Carr expanded on the lead with a wrap around that he put between goaltender Sean Bonar and the right post.

Sophomore Tyler Maugeri tallied his seventh goal of the season midway through the second frame to cut the Tigers deficit to one. Junior Jeremy Goodwin collected the puck along the right boards and popped it into the center for freshman Michael Zajac. Zajac saw Maugeri flying solo down the right flank and he one-timed it from the top of the circle and into the back of the net.

Two two-minute minors on Josh Jooris with five minutes remaining in the game looked like the perfect opportunity to notch the game-tying goal, but the Tigers couldn't get anything by Grosenick, who finished the game with 17 saves as Union outshot Princeton 45-19 in the game.

Bonar matched his career high of 42 saves as the Tigers fall to 5-8-4 overall and 4-4-3 in league play.

Princeton will take on Rensselaer tomorrow afternoon, Jan. 12 at 4 p.m.
