PU Men's Hockey Produces Weekend Split; Needs to Make Quicker Starts to Get Rolling
Bill Alden, Town Topics (11/28/12)

Even though the Princeton University men's hockey team has only played eight games this season, the Tigers have proven they can fight back from a deficit.

In a win over No. 4 Cornell on November 9, the Tigers were down 3-2 in the third period but then reeled off three unanswered goals to post a 5-3 win. A week later, Princeton trailed 2-1 at No. 16 St. Lawrence but fought back to earn a 3-3 tie.

Last Friday at Sacred Heart, the Tigers forged another comeback, rallying from a 3-1 deficit to pull out a 4-3 victory.

While Princeton head coach Bob Prier admires his team’s pluck, he would prefer to see it start playing from ahead.

"We have done OK with uphill battles but we need to start playing better early in each game," said Prier.
