Jakaitis Shines in Tying Career Record in Shutouts

Three second period goals were all that Lake Superior State University goaltender Jeff Jakaitis needed to record his second shutout of season and ninth of his career to tie Blaine Lacher (1991-94) with career shutouts, with a Laker 3-0 win.

After an uneventful first period in which a lackluster Laker team was out shot by the Warriors 11-to-8, freshman Nathan Perkovich banked in his team leading seventh goal of the season off of Wayne State goaltender Will Hooper on a shot from the side of the net. Barnabas Birkeland got the only assist on Perkovich’s even strength goal at 4:43 of the second period.

Sault native Jason Blain took a hooking penalty at 9:38 of the second period to put the Lakers one player down for the third time in the game. On the ensuing short handed situation Trent Campbell was able to notch his 4th goal of the season, at 10:14, with Josh Sim getting his first assist of the season on the play. Just over a minute, 11:28, later Derek A. Smith was able to put in a shot for his first goal of the season with Jeff Rainville getting his second assist of the season on the play, Smiths two goals last weekend were redistributed after video review, he now is 1-9-10 on the season. The two goals that LSSU scored in the 2 minute short handed situation is potentially a school record.

The Lakers out-shot Wayne State 29-to-22 in the game, but found themselves on the short end in the faceoff battle again this game going 25-for-54 in the game.

LSSU held Wayne State to 0-for-6 on the power play and scored 2 short handed goals while down a man. Lake Superior was 0-for-8 with the extra man, putting them 0-for-22 on the power play in their last 4 games.

These same two teams faceoff again Saturday night, look for freshman Pat Inglis to get his 4th start in goal this season.
