Lake Superior Splits with 8/9th Ranked Clarkson

After a disappointing showing Friday night in which Lake Superior State suffered a shutout and also gave up 3 special teams goals, 2 on the power play and one shorthanded to fall 0-4 to Clarkson, LSSU dominated Clarkson Saturday to top the Golden Knights 5-1.

Lake Superior gave up two goals in the first and two goals in the third periods on Friday night falling to Clarkson 0-4 on Friday night. Sophomore goaltender Pat Inglis gave up 4 goals on 25 shots in a losing performance, while the Laker offense was unable to put any of their 19 shots past Clarkson goaltender David Leggio.

LSSU went 0-for-5 on the power play, and gave up 2 goal on 7 opportunities with the extra man to the Golden Knights.

Saturday night saw Freshman goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson starting and seeing his first collegiate action. LSSU opened the scoring Saturday night with Sophomore Nathan Perkovich scoring his third goal of the season on the power play at 18:39 of the first period, Simon Gysbers and Troy Schwab each recorded their first assists of the season on the play. Perkovich’s goal was his third in four games this season.

LSSU was able to jump on Clarkson with Chad Nehring scoring his first collegiate goal 24 seconds into second period with Josh Sim getting his second assist of the season. Steven Kaunisto added his first goal of the season just over two minutes later, at 3:54 of the second period, with Dan Eves recording the assist. The Lakers added a third 2nd period goal on the power play with Eves scoring his second goal of the season with Nehring and Kaunisto each recording assists on the play. Nehring added a second goal and third point scoring on the power play at 14:32 of the third period, Eves and Nik Sellers received assists on the goal.

Mahoney-Wilson fell victim to what is being reported as a leg cramp after getting knocked into the net during a scrum for the puck in front of the Laker net at 15: 23 of the third period, denying him the opportunity to record his first shutout as a Laker. A cold Inglis replaced Mahoney-Wilson in goal and ended up giving up a goal to Clarkson’s David Cayer at 19:12 of the third period.

Mahoney-Wilson recorded 32 saves in just over 55 minutes in his first collegiate outing for the Lakers, while Inglis recorded 3 saves on 4 shots in short relief in the third period. Clarkson goaltender Tim Potter posted 31 saves on the 36 Laker shots he faced, in his first NCAA appearance. LSSU went 3-for-8 on the power play (3-for-13 on the weekend), and killed all three opportunities that Clarkson had (2-for-10 on the weekend). For the fourth game this season LSSU held the faceoff edge winning 53% of the time.

LSSU travels to South Bend next weekend to open the CCHA season defending CCHA champion Notre Dame both games start at 7:35 p.m. Thursday and Friday.
