SEAHAWK MEN'S ICE HOCKEY RESULTS

Neumann 4, Salve Regina 2
Portsmouth, R.I. – Portsmouth Abbey
Saturday, October 29, 2016

Summary
After just one goal scored through 40 minutes there were five goals scored in the third period as Neumann University hung on to defeat Salve Regina University 4-2 in non-conference play.

Series and Streaks
This was the seventh meeting between the teams with the Knights now owning a 4-2-1 advantage all-time. 

Three Stars of the Game
1 – Salve Regina sophomore Blake Wojtala (Trenton, Mich.) - made a career-high 54 saves in the loss.
2 – Neumann junior Matt Gibney (Watrous, Saskatchewan) - made 37 saves to improve to 2-0 on the season.
3 – Neumann freshman Matt Gerber (Lausanne, Switzerland) - scored the deciding goal to break a 2-2 tie midway through the third period.

Key Stat of the Game
The Knights outshot the Seahawks 58-39 in the game.

Turning Point
After trailing 1-0 the Seahawks score two of the next three goals to tie the game 2-2 in the third when Jack Billings (Oak Lawn, Ill.) scored his first collegiate goal on a wrist shot from the right wing with 10:07 left to play. The Knights answered right back though when Gerber raced 1-on-2 down the right side, shielding the defender and lifting backhand shot past Wojtala to give Neumann back the lead just 47 seconds later.

Quick Hits

  • The Seahawks pulled Wojtala in the final minute but could not find the equalizer with the extra man, instead Anthony Pino (Glen Mills, Pa.) scored on the empty net to seal the victory for the Knights.
  • The Knights blocked 13 shots in the game, frustrating the Seahawks offense early as they only could manage six shots in the first period.
  • The Seahawks remain perfect on the penalty kill, holding the knights to 0-6 with the man advantage while cashing in on one of their three chances on the powerplay in the game.
  • The Seahawks won 55 of the 92 faceoffs in the game.
