Shutout Again

Lake Superior State University’s Hockey Team was swept in back to back shutouts for the first time since the 2003-04 season. The Lakers anemic offense has now been shutout in three of their past 4 games

The Lakers fell behind early in the game giving up a power play goal to Mathieu Beaudoin (4:40) on a fluky play where the puck was dumped into the zone and bounced out in front of the net, right onto the junior forward’s stick.

The Lakers where unable to capitalize on there scoring opportunities in the first and second periods, including hitting three posts. Ohio State increased their lead to 2 in the second period with Mathieu Beaudoin scoring his second of the game at 12:25. Bryce Anderson added a goal at 18:22 two seconds after Ren Fauci came out of the penalty box for serving two minutes for interference. Matt Waddell added a power play goal with 48 seconds remaining in the period, after Barnabas Birkeland took a bad tripping penalty at 18:51.

The Lakers replaced Jeff Jakaitis in goal after he gave up 4 goals on 21 shots in two periods, with freshman Vince Wheeler. Wheeler handled all 8 shots he faced with ease in seeing his first college action.

LSSU went 0-8 on the power play including two 5 on 3 opportunities. 26 of the Lakers 27 shots did come on the power play. OSU went 2-10 on the power play. OSU dominated the Lakers in faceoff circle again tonight by a greater than 2 to 1 margin.

The Lakers head home to face Robert Morris in non-conference play Thanksgiving Weekend.
