Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (11/22/13) – No. 4 Quinnipiac went 2 for 4 on the power play to earn a 3-0 win over Princeton in men’s hockey on Friday, Nov. 22 at Hobey Baker Rink.

Quinnipiac converted on its first power-play opportunity with the game’s first goal at 8:22 of the second period. Kellen Jones notched his 100th career point with the goal with Connor Jones and Sam Anas assisting. Set up in triangular fashion, Anas sent the puck from the middle to the right side of the goal for Connor who slipped it across the slot to Kellen who had an open shot on the left side.

Thirty seconds later it was a two-goal game with a tally by Jordan Samuels-Thomas. Connor Clifton sent the puck from one blue line to the other and Samuels-Thomas sent a high shot over the right shoulder.

Quinnipiac started the third with a two-man advantage after Princeton received two penalties at the close of the second period. Senior Andrew Ammon received two for roughing and served just 11 seconds before junior Tom Kroshus was called for face-masking, setting up a 5x3 for the first 1:49 of the final frame.

The Tigers successfully killed off the penalties but would get tripped up on their fifth penalty of the game with a power-play goal by Anas. Matthew Peca and Devon Toews helped set up the goal at 6:51.

Princeton had a chance to get on the board after a five-minute major penalty and misconduct to Clifton at 16:33 but the Tigers couldn’t get one by goaltender Michael Garteig who earned his 12th win with 19 saves.

The teams were scoreless after the first period thanks to a 13-save performance by freshman netminder Colton Phinney. Phinney was seeing action for the first time since Nov. 8 and finished with a career-high 31 saves, surpassing the 29 he made at Colgate on Nov. 2. He made two big saves midway through the third period on back-to-back chances by Soren Jonzzon and Samuels-Thomas.

The teams will meet again tomorrow night at 7 p.m., at TD Bank Sports Center.
