Lake Superior State Sweeps American International

Lake Superior State’s hockey team did their job Saturday night to make Great Lake State Weekend a good experience for all by completing a sweep over American International College with a 4-1 win.

Dan Eves gave the Lakers a 1-0 lead on the power play at 11:58 of the first period with assists going to Derek A. Smith and Troy Schwab.

The AIC Yellow Jackets tied the game with Jereme Tendler scoring an even strength goal at 9:23 of the second period. Nathan Perkovich was able to regain the Lakers one goal lead less than a minute later, 10:20, with an assist going to Matt Martello and Trent Campbell. Perkovich has scored a goal in each of the Lakers past five games. Jeff Rainville gave the Lakers an insurance goal before going into the lockerroom for the second intermission by scoring a power play goal, his third goal of the weekend, with just 25 seconds remaining, 19:35, in the period. Both Derek Smith’s where awarded assists on the Rainville Goal.

Sault native Jason Blain scored his first goal wearing the Lakers anchor 1:22 into the third period to give the Lakers a 4-1 lead, Dan Eves and John Scrymgeour got the assists on the Blain goal.

The Lakers went 2-for-6 on the power play, putting 15 shots on goal, and held AIC to 0-for-5 with the extra man. The Lakers finally won the faceoff battle in a game going 36-for-61 in the faceoff circle.

LSSU freshman goaltender Pat Inglis saved 14 of the 15 shots he faced.

Laker Notes: Bill Crawford did mention that freshman Micheal George from Battleford, Saskatchewan, was experiencing NCAA clearinghouse troubles due to his high school not being able to clear up some academic issues from the 9th grade in a timely fashion. Ryan Baird from Thunder Bay, Ontario has a shoulder problem that he came to school with and had operated on in September; he is expected to see game action against Miami of Ohio the weekend of November 10-11 or the following weekend November 17-18 against Wayne State University.

Next weekend the Lakers travel to Bowling Green, Ohio to resume CCHA play by taking on the Falcons of Bowling Green University, Friday and Saturday’s games both start at 7:05.
