Lakers Put up 10 against Western Michigan

Jeff Rainville, Troy Schwab, Trent Campbell, and Dan Eaves each scored two goals in the game. The explosive Laker offense chased Daniel Bellissimo after scoring 6 goals in just over 2 periods of play.

The Lakers jumped out to an early lead with Jeff Rainville scoring one minute into the game on a pass from Nathan Ward and Marty Gunroe. Rainville scored his third goal of the season on the two man advantage at 12:50 of the first period, with assists going to Barnabas Birkeland.

Rainville was able to add a third point at 8:23 of the second period when he led a shorthanded rush and was able to dish a pass off to Trent Campbell who buried the puck behind Daniel Bellissimo.

Troy Schwab added a power play goal, his first collegiate goal, at 13:07of the second period, assisting on the goal was Colin Nicholson and Campbell, to give the Lakers a 4-0 lead.

The game got chippy when Chris Frank ran Colin Nicholson, punches where thrown but only roughing penalties where assessed. Nicholson was outmanned but held his own. This led to the Lakers being awarded a 2 minute 2 man advantage, that the Lakers where unable to capitalize on.

Troy Schwab netted his second goal of the game at the two minute mark of the third period, after being set up by Matt Wheeler and Trent Campbell.

Western’s Reid Yantzi took a major penalty for checking from behind at 3:31 of the third period. The Lakers where able to capitalize on their 5-3 power play with a goal by Trent Campbell, at 4:06, with assists going to Matt Restoule and Troy Schwab. LSSU added a second power play goal during the major penalty at 5:25 of the third period with Dan Eves, assisted by Josh Sim, putting a shot past backup goalie Ryan Mensing. The Lakers scored a third goal during the major penalty power play when Dominic Osman netted his third goal of the season at 6:34 of the third period, with assists going to Derek A. Smith and Jeff Rainville.

The Lakers got their ninth goal of the game at 9:35 of the third period with a power play goal by Alex Dunn, assisted by Colin Nicholson and Steve McJannet.

Wheeler took a major penalty, and game disqualification, at 10:28 of the third period for spearing that effectively ended the Lakers third period scoring flurry. The Lakers where able to kill off the major penalty giving up only 4 shots in the five minutes.

Dan Eaves scored the Lakers 10th goal, his second of the game, at 18:11 of the third period, with assists going to Derek R. Smith and Alex Dunn.

The last time the Lakers scored more than ten goals in a game Sean Tallaire was the teams leading scorer and Blaine Lacher was the Lakers goalie. The Lakers put up 11 goals against Michigan State in a 11-1 romp on February 11, 1994.

The Lakers where 6 for 13 on the power play while holding WMU’s top rated CCHA power play to 0 for 5.

Jeff Jakaitis recorded his 4th shutout as a Laker, his first since the 03-04 season. Jakaitis only had to turn away 18 shots.

LSSU was able to outshoot their opponent again this season with 39 shots, the Lakers have outshoot their opponent for the 6th time in 7 games.

LSSU plays WMU again Saturday night at the Lawson Arena.

This was yet another CCHA game played with out GameTracker, making it impossible to obtain statistics during the game.
