Lakers Split

Goaltending, Goaltending, Goaltending...

Lake Superior State University was unable to gain ground in the CCHA standing after splitting with Western Michigan University this weekend, despite a 7-4 win on Friday night. Friday night Lake Superior jumped out to a 6 goal lead in the first two periods with scoring three goals in each of the first two periods. Nathan Perkovich opened the scoring with an even strength goal at 2:58 of the first period with Pat Inglis and Dan Barczuk assisting. Barczuk added a goal of his own with Perkovich assisting less than 5 minutes later at 7:11 of the period. Josh Sim netted his 10th goal of the season at 12:04 of the period with Will Acton garnering the only assist his goal that gave the lakers a 3-0 lead after the end of the first period.

Lake Superior continued the onslaught in the second period with Kyle Haines scoring 2:29 into the second period with Fred Cassiani and Troy Schwab assisting. Zac MacVoy netted his 11th goal of the season one minute later, on the power play, at 3:39 of the second period with Simon Gysbers and Cassiani assisting. The Lakers 4th goal chased Western Michigan Starting goaltender Riley Gill. Senior Carter Lee, playing in just his 10th game of the season, welcomed Western Michigan backup Jerry Kuhn, scoring his first goal of the season, just 33 seconds later with John Scrymgeour and Brad Cooper assisting.

Following the second intermission in which LSSU had a 6-0 lead Western Michigan came out and scored 4 straight goals in under 10 minutes, prompting Laker head coach Jim Roque to pull LSSU starting goaltender Pat Inglis, replacing him with Brian Mahoney-Wilson seeing his first action since being injured on January 24th. Mahoney-Wilson stopped all 5 shots he faced while Chad Nehring netted an insurance goal for the Lakers at 10:09 to give LSSU he 7-to-4 win. Barczuk and Perkovich assisted on the Nehring goal.
LSSU managed 37 shots in the game, while LSSU goaltender Pat Inglis recorded 13 saves in the first two periods of the game before allowing 4 goals on 7 shots in the 3rd period. Mahoney-Wilson stopped all 5 shots he faced in relief. WMU was 2-for-5 on the power while LSSU’s power play went 1-for-4.

The Lakers didn’t fare as well on Senior Night Saturday as they did on Friday night, falling 4-to-1. Pat Inglis was pulled by for the second night in a row after giving up 2 goals after facing only 7 shots in the first 15:27 of the game.

After 40 minutes of scoreless play the Broncos notched a power play goal, at 16:04, marking the first time Brian Mahoney-Wilson had been scored on in almost a month. Lake Superior’s Zac MacVoy scored for the Lakers after Manoney-Wilson was pulled in favor of the extra attacker at 17:08 of the third period. WMU netted an empty net goal with 59 seconds remaining to seal the 4-to-1 win.

LSSU dominated in the shot department for the second night in a row recording 38 shots in the game, while Pat Inglis recorded only 5 saves on the 7 shots he faced. Mahoney-Wilson stopped 14 of the 15 shots he faced in relief. WMU was 1-for-4, 3-for-9 for the weekend, on the power while LSSU’s power play went 0-for-4, 1-for-8 on the weekend.
