ESTERO, Fla. (12/29/09) -- The Princeton men's hockey team rallied from deficits of 4-1 and 6-4 to forge a 6-6 tie with Maine on Tuesday afternoon in the opening game of the Florida College Classic at the Germain Arena. Mark Magnowski led the Tigers with four points apiece in the tie.

Maine struck early to build a 2-0 lead with two of its three power-play goals. Adam Shemansky and Robby Dee scored on rebounds in the eighth and 11th minutes to build a Black Bear lead. The Tigers cut the lead in half with a power-play marker from Taylor Fedun at 13:45. His goal was his first of the season and came on a point shot off a feed from Mike Kramer. Josh Van Dyk closed the first period scoring off an end-to-end rush at 16:36. Princeton trailed 3-1 after 20 minutes despite outshooting Maine 16-8.

Maine scored 1:29 into the second to go ahead 4-1 on Gustav Nyquist's power-play goal and looked to have the momentum in the game, but that changed at 4:03 when Maine's Tanner House was assessed a five-minute roughing with contact to the head penalty. The infraction sent Princeton's Kevin Kaiser to the locker room for the remainder of the evening and resulted in a Tiger power play.

Princeton took advantage of the five-minute power-play and scored three times with the advantage to draw the game even at 4-4. First Dan Bartlett netted his team-leading seventh goal of the season and then Magnowski scored consecutive goals from Kramer and Fedun.

Maine though weathered the storm and regained the lead with four minutes left in the second as Theo Andersson stuffed in a goal from the post. The Black Bears expanded the lead four minutes into the third on Dee's second goal, but Princeton rallied with two goals less than two minutes apart to tie the game.

First Kevin Lohry scored off a feed from Bartlett, putting a shot just inside the far upper corner and then Matt Arhontas redirected a Cam Ritchie point shot with 6:31 left to draw the Tigers even at 6-6.

Neither team scored late in the third or in overtime and the game ended in a draw. Following the game, the teams had a shootout to determine which team would advance to Wednesday's tournament championship. Maine won the shootout 3-2. Arhontas and Kramer scored in the shootout for the Tigers.

Princeton goaltender Zane Kalemba made 29 saves while Maine's Scott Darling had 35. Princeton outshot Maine 41-35.

Princeton is now 4-8-2 overall and will play in the tournament consolation game on Wednesday at 4:05 p.m.
