PRINCETON, N.J. (11/8/13) - The No. 9 Yale men's hockey team took a 5-2 game from Princeton in the Tigers home opener on Friday, Nov. 8 at Hobey Baker Rink.

The Bulldogs took a 4-0 lead midway through the second period and Princeton (1-4, 0-3) couldn't fully dig itself out, despite two goals from its special teams.

Yale (3-1-1, 2-0-1) took a 2-0 lead in the first period on tallies from Carson Cooper and Mike Doherty. Stu Wilson net the game-winning goal at 5:47 of the second period when he intercepted a Princeton breakout and skated in for the solo goal.

Tommy Fallon made it a four-goal game at 8:21 of the second period after picking up a blocked shot by Anthony Day. Fallon circled out of the slot and across the blue line before firing the puck right in front of the Yale bench that made its way through traffic and into the back of the net.

Senior defender Alec Rush put the Tigers on the board with a power-play goal at 16:55 of the second. Freshmen Ben Foster dug the puck out of the right corner and sent it behind the goal to senior Jack Berger. Berger sent the puck up the ice to Rush, positioned on the blue line, and he rifled in the goal.

Fallen added his second of the night three minutes later as the Bulldogs grabbed a 5-1 lead at the second intermission.

Junior Aaron Kesselman notched his first goal of the season in the third period, a short-handed goal. The Tigers were forced to play a man-down for five minutes after Andrew Ammon was given a five-minute major and game misconduct. Freshman Tommy Davis delivered a great shot that was tipped by Kesselman. Freshman Ryan Sirro was given credit on the secondary assist.

Freshman Colton Phinney started in goal and made 17 saves through the first two periods. Senior Sean Bonar started the third period and made eight saves on eight shots. Yale's Patrick Spano won his third game of the season making 23 saves.

Princeton was 1 for 3 on the power play and held Yale to 0 for 3.

The Tigers host Brown tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. Following the game will be the team's first Skate with the Tigers of the season.
